    John DeVries died 40yrs ago, so I think he's out of the running. & be careful, I wouldn't bet the farm on the de Thouars' version of history. The only one in the US you might be able to trust is Willem.

    I know this thread is ancient, so I apologize. I did however want to address this question. Vunak was one of Guro Dan's early students, not the other way around.

    As to the others who have stated how amazing Guro Dan is, I concur. I have had the good fortune to attend some seminars with him and I am consistently blown away by his ability, and his dedication. He has so much to show and teach that his seminars end up like trying to take a drink from a fire hose.
