Phony Or For Real?

Not surprisingly, questions have arisen...

The Gentle Wind Project, based in Kittery, Maine, claims to be a "world healing organization with a remarkable healing technology," 10News reported.

The technology consists of healing instruments, such as a laminated "High-Density Healing and Pain Card" available for a $450 donation and a plastic "Rainbow Puck V" for a donation of almost $6,000.

"Our concern is that they are scamming people by selling basically pieces of paper and plastic," attorney Carl Starrett said.

Starrett works with LaChappelle at non profit agency, Special Investigations AgencyOff-site Link. They received consumer complaints from across the country that led them to look into the Gentle Wind Project.

"They basically convince you that once you buy one of these healing instruments that you will be an "instrument keeper" and now you're going to be able to help mankind," Lachapelle said.

The healing instruments are not approved by the Food and Drug Administration.

The Attorney General's Office in Maine says it is "looking into" Gentle Wind Project and is reluctant to elaborate, 10News reported.

The Gentle Wind Project was scheduled to have a meeting at the People's Market in Ocean Beach Saturday, but once 10News reporter Fred Blankenship told store employees about the organization, they canceled the meeting.

Blankenship spoke with instrument keeper Moe Miller by telephone and she maintains the instruments have healing powers and that they are free -- if you're "honestly interested in saving humanity."

The Gentle Wind Project is not a small-time operation, 10News reported. According to its tax statement, the organization took in $1.2 million in contributions in 2001 and $861,368 was spent for "developing healing instruments."

Miller says healing comes to her telepathically.

Lachapelle remains suspicious.

"Clearly their motive in this whole thing is money. This is all about money," he said.

Maine's Attorney Generals Office is interested in hearing from any Gentle Wind Project client -- call (207) 626-8591.
