Corboy and Dutch - thanks for the welcome guys.
I ~declare~ I am ~being~ a ~stand~ for the ~possibility~ of a group here in London for ex-Landmarker staff and volunteers and those in recovery from Landmark.
Maybe someone in the UK will read this and we can get together. In the meantime, I salute this site, afl, freedomofmind and R&R as great places for survivors to hook up and support each other via the Web.
Dutch – I wish you luck with a group in Amsterdam.
Corboy – I don’t know where you are in the States, are there any survivors groups over there that you are aware of ? Or groups working with health professionals to warn the public about the dangers of Landmark ?
I just read that gc4062 and his survivors group is in Canada, which is a little way off my regular beat.
One of my assisting jobs in London was as Source Person for the Teen and Young Persons Forums, and I still have nightmares about the young daughter of a friend of mine (herself a Landmark fan) who committed suicide in 2002 aged just 17 after doing the Curriculum when she was only 14 or 15 years old. I want to publicise this sort of disaster more widely to health professionals who may be unaware of the possible consequences of Landmark manipulation/brainwashing.
I like the suggestion in the Tony Robbins thread on this board that mental health professionals be contacted every time Robbins is in their town to warn them to expect psychotic breakdowns or bi-polar episodes in their local population after Robbins visits.
It would be great to do the same thing every time The Forum hits your town. A well publicised letter to the local press via a press release might re-enforce the message. I also want to contact mental health charities (like Mind in the UK) to warn them of the dangers of Landmark.
Anyone in the UK who wants to join me in my anti-Landmark work please get in touch.
There may be others already doing this work who I haven’t met. I am aware of the name of Ian Howarth of the Cult Information Centre here in London as one resource I can contact. He was featured last month on the excellent 2 part BBC radio documentary which basically demolished est and Landmark [www.bbc.co.uk
