Reviewing “Handbook of the Navigator” by Eric Pepin

Controversy

Some have pointed out that he sells various objects that seem to make him “for profit.”  There have been Siddhis Cubes and Meditation pills. He also utilizes marketing funnels (automated email marketing tools.)  However, Eric is very open about all of this. There’s no sense of trying to dupe anyone.  I’ve seen videos of Eric where he talks to a crowd and mentions his marketing campaigns.  He isn’t hiding the fact he’s marketing products to people.  Which is good.

Do those products work? That’s up to the individual to decide.

I don’t own a Siddhis Cube, nor do I have any meditation supplements, so I can’t talk about those.  What I can talk to you about his book “The Handbook of the Navigator,” lectures and his meditations.

While I haven’t found anything overtly wrong with Eric Pepin, I can’t vouch for him either. He seems like a spiritual seeker. Yes, he uses marketing tools and advertising. You’ll get an email with an offer for a teaching for only $5, buy it and get 3 or 4 upsells trying to get you to spend $30-$100 a pop on more expensive modules. Is that wrong? That’s up to you to decide. It is understandable for this to put some people off. It feels very mundane and cash oriented. At least to me. Yet – I get various emails with free meditations that are amazing.

I would encourage people to figure out their own vibe on him. Personally I have kept on with his work for several weeks (reading this book, buying a few modules) and I wouldn’t do that if I didn’t find some value.

Detractors

I’ve also seen various people borderline slander him. I found a fake website that pretended to be Eric’s organization – with links to Scientology. As a past Scientologist, I knew Eric’s philosophy is not congruent with their own. I reported the site to Higher Balance and they confirmed it was a fraud site.

Eric Pepin seems to be the target of various mud slingers and I’ve seen that before as well. A lot of people will attack spiritual groups – especially those they don’t understand. I do not see Eric as a “guru” and treat him as any other spiritual author who writes to an audience.

Gurus

In my past I followed a guru (Paramhansa Yogananda.) He died in the 50’s and I followed his teachings from a group called Ananda. Since the Guru was not in a human incarnation (they were dead), it was a harmonious path. I would caution anyone from treating a living human being as a Guru.

I haven’t heard Eric refer to himself as a Guru (although his naysayers claim this is his role), nor does he appear to act like one in his videos (IMO.) However, I believe Eric has referred to himself as enlightened. This I do not feel. I think he’s on a spiritual path. To be enlightened one must be able to do more than manifest powers (which some claim Eric can do.) Enlightenment is full and perfect knowledge, along with the ability to appear anywhere. In Buddhist terms, it is being a Buddha yourself. Since I feel Eric is off in some assessments of spirituality (mentioned in this review), I feel he lacks that full and perfect knowledge. That doesn’t mean he’s “bad” but I feel he’s on the path but not enlightened. As such, I do not think of him as an enlightened being… unless of course we are thinking in terms of Namaste (“The God in me recognizes the God in you.”) In that sense we are all potentially enlightened.
