in this forum encountered a person name "Vikki Brock" in any of the above organizations.

I am asking because this individual produced a dissertation on the 'origins of the coaching field' that seems calculated to promote W.E.

This grounded research studies contains numerous research fallacies of the type I would expect from a Landmarkian.

Ring any bells?

1. Werner Erhard is all over her website as a form of hagiography of him.

2. And Vikki Brock is quoted on the Werner Erhard website as a fawning form of adulation about him.

She says on the Werner Erhard website:

VIKKI BROCK Coach, Consultant and Facilitator

“I credit Werner Erhard as one of the founders of contemporary coaching. Werner Erhard introduced the idea of transformation in the early 1970s through his est courses which opened people’s minds to the possibility of their growth and potential."

Vikki Brock seem to tacitly omit and ignore the psychiatric disturbances in EST training, history of litigation, and the Landmark Education litigation archive.

Yes, thank you, I am aware of Ms. Brock's unbridled enthusiasm for Erhard.

You might be interested to know that via a grounded research-based study, conducted in an unaccredited university, and never peer-reviewed, Ms. Brock was able to create an epistemological solar system (the coaching field) with Werner Erhard positioned as "Sun King".

What was the unaccredited university?

Do you have a link to where she referred to Werner Erhard similar to a "Sun King"?

International University of Professional Studies

She uses a methodology that enabled her to survey the opinion of many 'coaches' associated with Landmark Education, as to who was their greatest influence, or who had exerted the greatest on the field, and then drew the inevitable conclusion based on their responses. The "Sun King" positioning is clear from relationship charts she develops to support her dissertation results.

In the March 3, 1991, program of 60 Minutes, "Werner Erhard", the employees of Werner Erhard recount,

"We were told to surrender to him as 'Source' - I think that's idolatry."

Does this pattern of the "Sun King", sound similar, so many years later, to the same behavioral mentality of a god king?

Query:

Do you think worshippers of modern "Sun Kings" would be capable of, say, harassing in a systematic fashion, individuals who question the divinity of their master?

Hi! I'm a true crime writer/reporter from LA working on a project on Landmark Forum and in search of sources. Specifically, I'm looking at the effects that Landmark Forum may have on mental illness; for example, the case of Jason M. Weed, who killed a man during a psychotic break he believes was triggered by his participation in Landmark Forum.If anyone is willing to talk about their experience with Landmark Forum (personally or with loved ones who've become involved), please reach out. I can provide anonymity! Please reach out if you are at all willing to learn/share more — you can PM here or email me at nilecappello@gmail.com.
