HILLSBORO, Ore. (AP) — A 39-year-old man who had a robe with the words "Master Eric" and claimed that a psychic ability called "remote viewing"
helped him locate runaways has been accused of sexually abusing a teenager, police said. Police said the victim was 17 when a follower of Eric J.
Pepin recruited him in 2004, and then Pepin had him perform sex acts.
Pepin and an employee, Jamison Priebe, 21, who lives at the same address as Pepin in Aloha, surrendered on charges of using a child in a sexual
display and sexual abuse. A grand jury issued indictments last week. "The charges are false, and we are confident Mr. Pepin will be exonerated,"
said his attorney, Sam Kauffman.
Under Oregon law, using a child in a sexual display carries a minimum penalty of nearly six years in prison. Beaverton police Detective Mike Smith
said Pepin operated the Higher Balance Institute in Beaverton. Smith said the ornate robe emblazoned "Master Eric" turned up during a search.
Pepin's Web site says he has located more than 100 missing persons and runaways, along with U.S. Navy submarines, through a psychic ability he calls
"remote viewing." The site offers meditation systems for $79 to $149 help customers develop their "sixth sense" and apply it "inward to awaken a
dimensional universe within the mind."
In an affidavit filed with a request for a search warrant, Smith said the victim, now 20, told police that Internet customers are men and women
usually older than 35. But, he told police, Pepin told him he should recruit "good-looking men" between 18 and 24 to work for him.
Smith wrote that the victim "was taught by Pepin to believe that the sexual contact was only a spiritual necessity." But after a while, the
affidavit says, the boy decided he was being used by Pepin, who bought him meals and paid him $200 after sex. The man contacted Beaverton police in
im not sure what transpired though. would be a shame if these things did happen and im sure he will keep making money like michael jackson. that being
said, the book if anything promotes a nice view of the universe and our part in it. to think that the author then goes off and indulges in anything
negative is very shocking to me but anyway.
although he doesnt give you any information on the actual meditation techniques he does give you an indication as to what you would need to do ie open
up your minds eye (6th chakra) etc and there is a wealth of info on the net on how to do it. some techniques may not be for you but there are enough
to pick from that should be upyour street (and nothing to do with cults or anything illegal, negative or whatever).
even if you dont take up the meditation i think the book at least is another good theory which is partly supported (dare I say) by m-theory/ string
theory (scientific name for a theory for everything giving rise to multiple dimensions with high probability). the analogies given are just basic ways
to describe rolls played out, in reality (i would imagine) things are slightly more complex/complicated but he does mention this and why he puts it in
a basic way, so everyone can understand them. and of course, ask ten people what their opinion is on any one analogy and you are bound to get 10
different interpretations, such as life, i guess lol
