Has everyone read the info available on the rick ross site? I've been following the expert advice to be open and caring with your Landmark loved one, and it really works. My friend was pretty arrogant and dismissive ("you'll never get it," he snapped at me once), but he really turned around once I started acting supportive. In fact, he now chats happily with me and has spilled all sorts of Landmark "secrets." It's important to let your LE friends know they have people who support them on the "outside." It also helps me to realize that my friend has been pretty thoroughly "brainwashed" but doesn't realize it...LE participants are victims, and it might help all of us to be more understanding if we look at them that way. That's not to say we should agree with LE teachings or be deceptive.
In fact, it helps if you talk about happy times before LEC...it helps bring out the "authentic" person you knew before.
He's not out of LE yet, but at least he's talking to me about it, which is a good first step.
