Beyond Our Ken

ABC  |  July 14, 2011

Beyond Our Ken is a compelling documentary giving a rare glimpse into the controversial Australian training organisation KENJA Communications. KENJA promotes itself as a personal "self empowerment organisation", but throughout its 25 year history it has frequently defended itself against claims, by the families of attendees and the Australian media, that it is a "secretive cult" practicing a "hypnotic form of mind control". There have been allegations of sexual abuse from former attendees and the much publicised story of Cornelia Rau has also been linked to KENJA. In 2006 Ken Dyers and Jan Hamilton allowed a film crew unprecedented access to the "spiritual evolvement centre" they founded in 1982. Interviews with past and present attendees detail their experiences of the organisation, while Ken and Jan candidly discuss their lives and motivations for establishing the centre.
