Re: Getting back my life and thoughts after LGAT/ Landmark

I went to a Lifespring course in the 1980s.
(Ironically, the same girl who sucked me into Church of Christ as a teen sucked me into this one too.)

Reading even for a few minutes about the various LGATs is enlightening: they were all started by someone who had been a part of an LGAT, who then "had differences" or "bright ideas" and huffed off to start his own LGAT.

They all blend together to me now, Werner and Werner-offshoots: est, forum, landmark, lifespring, MSIA, ad nauseum. . . .

I stuck out the entire five days of LifeSap because that was the condition for getting my money back.

I got it back, too: $350.00.

The program info said it was for five days. Then, at the very end, they expected a sixth return. I didn't live in the area, and wasn't staying around for it.

The woman who took my phone call about the refund said that another condition was that I could never enroll in another LifeSap LGAT again.

No problem there!

I don't know if you're still on here Nettie, but thanks so much for sharing your story and your insights. It has been so helpful to me as I've been further unpacking my five-year experience at Landmark recently. They also made me laugh out loud, you have a great way of satirising ridiculous Landmark concepts!

I was so saddened to hear about the person who committed suicide too, I had to deal with listening on the phone during an 'assisting agreement' to someone telling me their partner had committed suicide. Of course I got no real help afterward and I imagine you didn't either, so help you were able to deal with that trauma in a supportive way whether via therapy, friends, support groups etc. Because that stuff really does have a massive impact and I certainly feel it and the whole Landmark experience contributed to PTSD, which am experiencing the delayed onset of now eight years after the experience.

I hope you are doing ok now and solidarity! I am at the moment doing my best to expose these dangerous predators and I've been sending people to your posts.
