John Underwood or Staffers Q&A (Facts Only...vs Rants)
« on: August 16, 2005, 08:54:00 PM »
Hey,

Can we have a moderated/controlled thread with only questions and answers with John Underwood or any other staff regarding history, behind the scenes impressions ect. I would find that very interesting and enlightening and would appreciate Johns or any staffers time.

For instance finding out Art was Jackie Gleasons and Art Carnes sponsor was very cool. Also Art has 18 years when he started the Seed. Plus that he found AAers very cold in Miami.  

Then maybe different discussion threads for those so inclined.

Great idea. I support it 100%. The problem is will ex staff participate?

John U and any other ex staff, if you are there, I propose this. I will moderate this thread 100% and set the following guidelines.

1)Zero personal attacks or personal comments will be made in this thread. anything approaching that will be deleted by me without regard to who or why it was posted. This thread is for educational and program historical purposes only and will be treated differently than the normal forum.

2)Only direct questions will be entertained. The questions can be of any nature except if they are deemed to be baiting, in which case the question will be deleted.

3) the format will be question and answer with no follow up comments, only follow up questions.

4) Any ex staff can refuse to answer any question without accountability or criticism.

5) Questions cannot be of a highly personal nature  ie : why did you do this or that to me or my family. Instead, questions will be phrased as to why certain policy or techniques were used or instituted and  other direct questions.

6) no anon posting allowed in this thread. You must use your registered name.


I think everyone bears responsiblity for screwing up a great opportunity.  That includes me, JU, Ginger, and everyone else that posted. We just F'd it up.  A bunch of 40/50 year old people with much in common can and should do MUCH better.

JU and any other ex staff, respectfully, will you participate?

If so, please start here.

Did you ever meet Dupont personally, and if so, did he make any demands or suggestions on the program?  Did any staff not come thru by going thru normal channels  ie:  front row?

I was in The Seed about '73, lost lots of memory from heavy drug use as teenager, went back to
NorthEast High School and continued messing up.
15 years later, almost dead, I found AA, and have
been sober almost 20 years now.

This was a traumatic experience in my life, feel strange talking about it. I was there when they move from the city out to near Alligator Alley.

Can someone tell me some specifics about this period. I remember being in the tent, lived with
a heroin addict in Miami for a while.
Actually, I was a really messed up teenager that
was way out there. I would like to revisit some of these thoughts/feelings.
I live in KY now with a beautiful family, live is
good, but still have problems with anger, depression ect...but blessed indeed.

Would there be anyway to get my records from The Seed?
