Quotehampton I know this is off the original topic, but I have to respond. Based on my former heavy involvement with Landmark, I learned that the paid employees are treated just as poorly as the "assistants," although they have to work 10-12 hours a day with no overtime pay. The one exception, of course, are the Forum leaders who are treated like gods. I know that there are f

The are not ALLOWED to call you BY LAW ... I would call the center manager in London (and no one else) that you asked s.o. to be on their "DO NOT CALL" list, and it did not happen. Tell him that you are VERY annoyed, and that you don't want to receive any further calls, and if it happens you have to go to court. I am sure, it will stop then. Other office members might be no

I just hope the executives are treated like children as well, and taught "I want you to bring your family, your whole company to the Landmark Forum evening session, I want them to sign up ! ". "Come to assist in the office, then you can take care of the tap water we offer the normal (third-class) participant for free in plastic cups."

Quotehipo:shock: I'm starting to get overwhelmed by all the posts about this Landmark. I never heard of this company before. . Landmark is like a drug. Once people get sucked in, it is as difficult to get rid of the brainwashing like getting rid of any addiction. Landmark is a VERY DANGEROUS organization.

Quotemaurice Unfortunately, I don't have anything more than that. I was arguing with this guy, a SELP leader and ex-friend of mine, about Landmark, EST and Werner Erhard, and I mentioned the Hunger Project and I quoted the same thing quoted by SaneAgain, that only $2m out of $67m raised actually went to help the poor. I asked him if he knew about that. "Yes, I do know about the Hunger

the problem might be, that once you are pissed of by the LGAT you don't want to deal with it any further ... As far as my initial participation is concerned, I just was not informed. And at the time it just sounded quite interesting to me. Currently, I am not really interested wasting my time to much on more official steps, rather than writing on this message board my opinions and my p

QuoteRswinters Can you post some links to the documentation that is available for us to read on this stuff? Unfortunatly it is not in English, I will ask for an English translation, it might be available. It was good for me to read a balanced view, since I am far on the negative scale about Landmark :twisted:, but the clear message is: there have to be warnings included and forced by law.

Landmark closed offices in Denmark or Sweden too, in Europe it very strong in the UK and in Amsterdam (also in Frankfurt, Germany) here, cult information from Switzerland www.sektenberatung.ch/texte/76.pdf www.infosekta.ch/is5/gruppen/lm_anonymus1992.html I think Landmark closed due to bad press and subsequent drop in participants, but no legal action or something ...

Landmark reaches a critical mass in my country like a virus. It is absolutely scary. Something happened today, that has never happened before: A friend phoned me, that someone else has invited her to Landmark and asked what I think about it. It is a cult I said. I told her about Landmark 10 years ago, when I was still involved. Using small-world statistics, one could estimate the probability for

to be fair, some leaders at Landmark do have compassion and find the right way to deal with serious issues. But some just don't. In general, their leaders don't have the proper training, that applies for all LGATs.

I have been involved in Landmark. A friend of mine was involved over many years, she had a serious issue in the past, and never talked about it at Landmark. She intuitively protected herself and worked on her issues in private. But in the more advanced courses she talked about it, and then she had a mental breakdown after leaving Landmark. Landmark people just don't have any real compass
