I love the way you've laid all that out - and it is very helpful in non-dealing-with-Landmark ways, too (trolls from another site have been attacking a site that I spend a lot of time on and love). Thanks, corboy

I think BCT, BLP, PSI are all meaningless acronyms intended to pique our curiosity.

I love your site. It's been so beneficial. I seriously felt like I was the only person who felt the way I did about Landmark - I also had no idea there were so many incarnations of it! Anyway, thanks for all your hard work! ~Y

Hello Everybody! So yesterday I was on my way home from a family reunion on a small but very full plane, and was extremely tired and just ready to turn my brain off. The woman next to me introduces herself and asks me what I was there for, bla bla bla. I answered her and was polite, but all I really wanted to do was read my book. She then says I seem tired and stressed, and I say, "yes, I

Hmmm, I'm glad to know that now - guess I'll be referring to my "strong suits" when talking to lekkies, and seeing how they cover their asses when they correct my terminology!

I know, I have thought of that before too. I've never met someone who was so filled at hate toward someone else, and he wasn't like this before LE.

This reminds me of a discussion that I was having with a friend of mine who did Landmark (he is no longer involved, but I can see that he has in no way recovered and/or recognized the damage that has been done) about homophobia. He was talking about how he realized that it is only women who commit violent acts against gay men, and how only women are truly homophobic, and this results from their j

QuoteAn acquaintance complains, "If they are really offering a life-changing experience, why isn't it free?" I think quietly of the collection plate at church, reserve my judgment in true Landmark fashion, and gently add, "Perhaps you can come on Tuesday night? The collection plate at the church is optional, and the money is generally used for the betterment of the church an

QuoteaykaieI am sure that Landmark doesn't hurt everyone involved, but it does MAJOR damage to those with weak personalities or self-esteem. Please refrain from employing this myth. As someone who has lost dear friends to LE, it is very offensive to me.

A similar thing happened to me. I was "enrolled" in the first weekend that they make people do (forgot whether it's called "Introduction to the Forum" or whether that's the thing where you are asked to try to indoctrinate all your family and friends... anyway) but I was only able to sign up for one that was a couple of months in the future, so thankfully my buyer

I glad to hear that you left the course, and that you weren't sucked in the way many people are. About your friend seeming money-hungry, it seems that Landmark finds out what people "want out of life" and 1. tries to make that the person's single purpose, and 2. tries to make it seem like the only way to get this thing is by devoting themselves to Landmark. Strangely, the more

This site did not help me not take the Forum. Fortunately, I had already decided not to take the Forum long before I found out about this site. However, it helped me in other ways. For a long time I thought that the fact that I found Landmark creepy meant there was something wrong with me, like that I actually had the fear of commitment that they kept accusing me of. I even had signed up for a co

That's a great idea, Europe-girl. I'm not sure which would be easier; I would have to talk to the speakers to find that out. Another interesting thing would be to find out whether LE is importing English words into a language, or are they changing the meaning of the words that already exist in the language, like they do in English? Very interesting questions. Thanks!

Sometimes I feel that talking to LGAT apologists is like talking to one of those automated phone systems - there is a voice, but no one is actually there. It's very frustrating!

Oh, all of these are direct quotes out of their "syllabus". I am not, nor have I ever been, an LGAT apologist. I have seen the serious damage that these people can do. If I can use my knowledge of language and cognitive processes in order to try to stop them, I will. At this point, I am just doing this out of academic interest. I am a grad student in linguistics, and I have been inte

I was wondering if anyone who has actually done the forum (and/or subsequent sessions) could tell me the LE definitions of some words and phrases. I would like to know what Landmark SAYS THEY MEAN and what their real intentions were in using this specific word/phrase. engage powerfully Already Always Listening filters limits freedom context hidden contexts choice effect

QuoteHopeI did ask about Robin Gardner's credentials but that wasn't addressed in the agency's reply. I was a bit confused at the reply also - if it is free, presumably because the clients cannot afford to pay to view, then they are indeed building the Rolodex for the coach, no? Robin Gardner... I was trying to remember where I had heard that name before, and then I realized tha

Oh yeah! I have one of those stupid pamphlets! I found it in a box of some of my grandmother's old junk after she moved into my parents' house. I read it, at first not knowing that it was CoS garbage. Almost all of the stuff in it was very, very obvious - it said stuff like: "It's a bad idea to kill family members. This won't lead you to happiness." Oh, wow! You don&

These people are such jokes! The fact that people actually believe this stuff is very revealing about our culture. All the stuff that Joe Vitale advertises has to do with making more money without actually working for it... It seems like he must be able to either pray on people's desperation or their greed.
