The Real Secret QuoteWow! I'm so glad I came here. I was active with Landmark Education...as a program leader and participant for close to 4 years. I recently terminated my participation after having been subjected to some very negative, abusive experiences in "coaching" sessions with senior program leaders "committed" to me having a breakthrough in being "

If people want the inside dope on what is really done in LEC, run a search for all the posts by Guy, who was a former employee and Forum Leader It really didnt matter whose philosphies Erhard used. What mattered was the nuts and bolts 'tech' (technology) of social manipulation Erhard had learned from Scientology and Mind Dynamics. These were the active ingredients. The stuff from

For readers who are interested in the Werner Erhard 'tech' utilized by Muktananda and his successors in SY, you can read here exactly how it was done. Guy was heavily involved and had it on his conscience what he had done to people. gc4062 was one of our correspondants Manipulating the room set up..a key ingredient of how these large group formats operate.

Quotegc4062Socrates, to pick up on something you mentioned in another thread... yes, for some reason, the MTV generation has become intellectually lazy. But I'm part of the original MTV generation.

Quotegc4062While I never led the forum itself (Guy is your resident expert on that topic), I led a number of other programs that follow it, as well as training introduction leaders, and other program leaders. As a sort of unwritten code amongst former staff and program leaders, we never discuss the actual techniques used to mess with your head, as it could easily be picked up and used by other

Erg! What a consolation prize for giving up a year of your life to Landmark! -val Quotegc4062 Val, Depends on the region, as tuitions vary by region/country. In the centers I visited, typically reviewers paid either half price, or just the deposit amount. Former employees, if they spent at least one year on staff can participate for free for the balance of their lives.

Wow! OK- if I ever go back to a Forum Tues. night revival meeting, I'll take a good look around and look for the white engraved nametags.

gc4062, Would this be Larry P., black male, mid 40's? Any background you can give me would be great. My bros in love with Larry and his story: "grew up in the projects, now look at me, I'm a Landmark Leader!" This would all be quite funny if people's realities weren't at stake.

Quotegc4062 nyc, you have noted the circular language, which is typical of the average forum fanatic. It's like your typical politician, no matter what country or party, who can talk for days about something, and actually say nothing. Was it Orwell who introduced the concept of doublespeak? sort of yes, sort of not. Orwell coined the phrase newspeak , the updated form of language us

This is another psychological technique of manipulation. Karen Horney talked about "The Tyranny Of The Shoulds" and about the negative effects of having an Idealized Self-Image, and overidealized SHOULDS and MUSTS about other people. That creates enormous dysfunction in relationships, and within the Self. Its perfect for Landmark, (and Tony Robbins, etc) to use this technique, as t

There were a few others on Robbins site. MookieGuy was one, although he believed Tony was doing good work, yet being aware of some of his techniques. There were about 5 main posters on the Robbins board, and all of their posts were deleted, and now all are censored, so that's why there are no posts there!
