I first put that post up right after I did Landmark.
I always meant to come back here and post an update. I guess better late than never!
Surprisingly, I got a refund from Landmark. I went on to their website after posting here and on the feedback page I told them how I felt about the weekend.
They promptly refunded my course fee. I was gobsmacked because I had heard they were notorious for not giving refunds. I suspect they did this because not long before I did the course, the coronial inquiry was held into the death of a Sydney woman who did a similar course , called Turning Point.
I think Landmark were afraid of any adverse publicity.
Looking back, I am furious at some of the things they did that weekend.
One of the things that pissed me off the most about the other participants was the "smoke" incident.
I can't remember which day it was, but I think it was day 2. This horrible electrical burning smell came into the room and smoke started to come in through the ceiling vents.
Amazingly, nobody was keen to get up and run from the room, which was my first instinct. The horrible leader, Gitangali, was yelling at the three of us who were making moves to leave the room "wait, wait, it's nothing. Wait, the break is only a few minutes away. Just wait".
I didn't wait.
Just readiing here reminded me of how bad that weekend made me feel. I got over it, thank God, but at the time I first posted here, I was really down and feeling very out.
Thanks for being here, this website is very valuable.
