If you hybridized a Ponzi scam with Scientology, you'd get Landmark Forum. He would wait for people to raise their hands, and he would call upon those people. I think regardless of my experience at the forum, your well thought out message will definitely serve as a strong perspective to potential participants. I suspect Landmark's margins are so thin that increased participation -- never mind the added revenue it brings in -- brings increased costs that get in the way of profitability. And from that point on I felt like I was free of this huge burden and could fully absorb what was being said from that point on.
They don't get it unless you tell them to get it.

I respect and wish the best for everyone that was there — I did see some amazing things! I engaged openly and candidly, earning Andrew's praise, although my initial question was never addressed despite my earnest repetition of it. Then an hour later he just sends a text saying he will pick her up at 6:30. Sorry to hear that Mat.
She is a member of the American Mental Health Counselors Assoc. She had the courage to stand up to it. I was stripped of all of my excuses for anything. There isn't anything like Landmark anywhere that I've heard of. I think his name was Scott and that he was a lawyer from California. It also talks about anxiety, fear and some exercises to observe the fear and overcome it.
Interesting: the overwhelming need to almost beg for forgiveness came over me but thankfully I resisted going that far and compromising my integrity. More than a few friends have attended Landmark. You need to reevaluate some things. I think your two acquaintances really went off the rails, though — they were just being weird about the interaction with you. However, when we attempted to withdraw from the session, the speaker exerted a great deal of pressure on us to stay, so we caved and stayed. Their work is hardly original, but if you made a claim otherwise, you would be participating of a. They both do whatever works best for them and when they cause harm or break rules or cause upheaval they will not acknowledge any fault, answer any questions or take any responsibility.
I am with you, in that, Landmark does not have a monopoly on the processes in which one may gain insights into their life. Like you said, none of their teachings are unique to the world. Just read the earlier threads and it's definitely not a cult. I learnt a lot from both of these courses about life etc. Your milage will seem to vary…. I repeated the fact that I wanted time to think about it and in the end she gave up and left. I had no idea how Andrew was as patient as he was at times.
The questions and answers on this site provide information about Landmark, its programs, and its practices. Whatever approach someone takes is perfect for them. The language used is gibberish, and not even grammatically correct. It would have been better if they had accommodated my request to leave at 5 pm that day, given me the handouts for the rest of the class that day and allowed me to attend class next day and left the onus on me to catch up on content I missed that day. It seems quite dangerous to your emotional equilibrium. This kind of stuff has a Very Important Purpose, dammit.
My resistance was so high that I thought maybe the resistance itself was an indicator that I should be signing up for their course — have been torn for the last 22 hours about whether or not to take it. If I have an appointment I strive to be on time and not just a few harmless minutes late like in the past. . Because of the experiential learning model, instead of writing these things down in a notebook, I managed to install and experience them as the seeds of new habits. Frick, this post is already way longer than I intended!! The numbers we see on the traffic signal lights was a landmark project too.
And they always have something to say to critisize in a polite authoritative voice. I called and a friendly man at the other end of the line indicated that my registration was confirmed. Every single person that belongs to this organization is totally brainwashed. Uncertainty about my path very quickly turned into clarity after, and every day I'm affirmed about my choices since. He pronounced that even people like Rahul Dravid who attended the Landmark forum was very humble and felt that I do not seem to be coachable unless I agree to all rules. That's why my dad never bought television advertising for his business back in the day: he didn't want his commercial running right at the moment when viewers run into the kitchen to get a sandwich. Thanks for letting me vent.
This marketing takes place in a very convincing manner that you will be forced to sign up your dear ones and friends for this. In the Forum, people are asked to look hard at those areas. The end of each day there were assignments. My local bus driver tricked me into attending a Landmark Forum at his home. The organisers are not trained professionals but are gifted in assessing what money they can get off someone.
