Going back to the representations regarding the nature of these "discussions", i.e., they are:
"designed to support people in being more effective in realising their own personal and societal goals. Through a series of philosophically rigorous and open discussions, voluntary sharing of your experience and short exercises, the Programme provides an opportunity to explore basic questions that have been of interest to human beings throughout time and to examine many aspects of your own life."
there is also the possibility that participants are being unduly influenced to advance Landmark's "societal goals", which have in the past taken the form of charity fraud, The Hunger Project, and the spinning off of quote, unquote executive development programs, which do seem to have been staffed in major part by 'volunteers'.
Given that Landmark technologies leverage the interests of the group against those of the individual, it is not hard to imagine the subtle coercion of volunteer time in support of both for profit enterprises, and 'charitable' goals, which have been evolved by Landmark management.
Just another level of deceit, and manipulation.
