if someone puts out his shingle as a professional kensho-inducer, shouldn't he be prepared for potential clients to ask to see his credentials before laying down $2000 on the promised delivery of goods & services. Are we back in "applied Zen" country, where a certain kind of cool, stable mindstate is fungible into improved performance at work (for leaders and producers)...?

So how about it: what are your credentials for providing an authentic kensho experiences to ordinary neurotics in search of a leg up on the pile, mujushinkyo?
I provide impeccable references before getting down to work, but only for serious students. Does that resolve the question for you?
In any case, I don't "give" people kensho experiences. That's not in my brief. I merely help with certain energetic techniques to "clear the mind" and make it ready. There's a big f**cking difference!
At least five people I've helped out have had kensho (the fundamental "Realization"). It's truly great to see This happen -- so much so that I doubt ordinary garden variety griping by people who are stuck in their "teachings" can ever depress me again!
I have a humble poem for you, too:

Love to you, man.
