It became absolutely clear to me this morning that Landmark uses hypnosis during the Forum, Advanced Course, and Advanced Communications Course. Those are the three that jump out at me. I realized this because yesterday I learned a mechanism for Hypnosis.
The mechanism used in the Fear Exercise in the Forum is very similar to the one I learned about. Pretty good way of instilling fear into individuals if you ask me!
The Advanced Course is rife with Hypnosis techniques, at least from what I can tell. A good one is where the participants stare into each others eyes while they are standing just a few inches away from each other while the course leader is giving the participants guided images. I believe the Advanced Course is designed to totally blow out and short circuit a persons brain and personality and set them up for reprogramming at a deeper level.
The Advanced Communications course uses a technique (during the Sunday evening portion) that is almost identical to the one the Forum used. It is also during a fear based exercise as well.
I'm sure there are other instances where hypnosis is used. But those are the three most blatant examples that I can think of at this moment.
This is very insidious...I didn't asked to be hypnotised by Landmark and I sure as hell didn't knowingly consent to it! Neither did anyone else that I am aware of.
Are there any other instances out there other than these that people can point to that Landmark has used?
I think you pretty much summed up the uses I am aware of. Anyway, even if they could argue it wasn't Hypnosis in the context they were using it how is it possible to ignore all the other techniques used for reprogramming such as the control of environment, lack of food, insistence on not drinking alcohol or using drugs, don't leave the room, uncomfortable seating - the list goes on.
Take a look at the online book from Louise Samways Dangerous Persuaders
She describes in detail how mind control techniques (including hypnosis) first developed by the American and Russian governments in the 50's have been utilised by Landmark, Scientology and all the other little pond life cults and sects to corrupt their prey and program their evil domination and dependency on the victim.
I sent this book to a few Lekkies to see if it would shake the programming - no joy. It seems that past a certain point the brainwashing is irreversible.
