I had a group of friends/colleagues who got into Landmark years ago.
One guy WAS a really good guy, i did many projects with him over many years.
Then he got into Landmark (The Forum), along with a few others I knew, and he began asking me ALL THE TIME to go to The Forum, and he also became extremely obnoxious, trying to point out all my psychological flaws, and basically doing the "Landmarking" personal attack and shaming method.
Now this was years ago, before i was on the internet, and knew anything about Landmark.
But he was behaving so obnoxiously, i literally stopped talking to him.
He got more and more into Landmark, and started hanging out with Landmarkians, and basically he disappeared from the scene i work in.
He is no longer my friend.
As a matter of fact, i think a lot of the Landmarkians, if they can't covert you to their Religion, think they are superior to you, and write you off as well.
Some people just get into these nutty things, and there is nothing we can really do about it.
That's my approach anyway.
I try to help, but if I can't get through to them, and they are being really obnoxious and destructive, i have no problem ending the friendship.
Don't allow others to violate your personal boundaries.
Just because other people go "crazy" doesn't mean we have to go nuts too!
