Born Jack Rosenberg, Erhard is the founder of est (Erhard Seminar Training) and the Forum.
Erhard is a former Scientologist, and brought many of their tenants and methods with him to est. A shortcut to understanding est is to imagine Scientology, except replace "science fiction writer" with "encyclopedia salesman".
In the mid 1970s, Erhard financed Jack Sarfatti and the Physics/Consciousness Research Group, and was involved with Michael Murphy and the Esalen Institute. According to Sarfatti, Erhard gave funds to the SRI remote viewing project.
(Sarfatti, Jack, "In the Thick of It")
John Mack was formerly on the board of advisors for est. Erhard is thanked in the Acknowledgments page of Mind Reach, the book by Harold Puthoff and Russell Targ describing the remote viewing research done at SRI.
