MINDCONTROL - Does Landmark and other LGATs really use that?
My reflections based on [en.wikipedia.org
- Yes, Landmark isolates you during the Forum course. They "trap" you into the course room for 3 days
with very long days. You have almost no time to reflect on what you have "learned". You go home to sleep and go back the next day.Mystical Manipulation
seemingly spontaneous experiences are planned and orchestrated. Yes - definitely. The forum course is very strict in it's buildup - a forum leader does everything the same way even though he seems to be improvising.Demand for Purity
- Yes - Landmark makes perfectionists out of people. They call it impeccability. If you don't behave they tell you that your life will go back to its preforum (miserable) state.Confession.
- Yes, they call it sharing. Or "getting complete". You are forced to reveal your past "sins" and let them go. You are told that all your doubts when they try to get you into the next course is because your past self is holding you back. They can tell you that what is stopping you is "Your racket" or "winning formula" or what not.Sacred Science
Yes, they give you some warped philosophy which they call "technology"Loading the Language
Oh my - that's a biggie. They make up new meanings of existing words. Integrity suddenly has the meaning "being your word" etc.Doctrine over person
Yes - they tell you that you have to let go of your old self and behave like a landmarkianDispensing of existence
Yes - even though they don't tell you that outsiders are lost you are encouraged to enroll them into the LGAT. They tell you to cut ties with people that don't support "what you are up to" while trying to create your world. That is - if you have somebody who doesn't want to do the courses maybe you should not associate with that person any longer. A lot of people leave friends/relatives/spouses that refuse to do the LGAT.
