About Martin the joker ... I believe it is likely that he is a real Landmark graduate. And that he just wants to make us fell stupid about wasting our time among non-Landmarkians. Chances are that he is trying to manipulate us into thinking that we are hostile to Landmark without any sound reasons, just because we are hostile people and because we have a problem. Next, he will be offering u

Quotehype2120She looked at me like I was nuts. And she rattled off a list of "paid positions" at Landmark...like the phone operators, the cleaning crew, some of the facilitators, etc. She rattled off a pretty big list. Is she correct? How many people are really on the LEC payroll? I just want to have my facts correct. Does anyone know the answer? Thanks! I'm in Montr

QuoteBalkanBoyElena - I picked up the Landmark 'jargon' while looking for cult news. This site is one of the most informative ones on the issues and so I thought I'd play a practical joke by provoking people into thinking I've been at the Landmark forum :). So now you know - I have not been to it - but I enjoyed the response I squeezed out of getting people to think that I co

BalkanBoy, QuoteBalkanBoyNow, let me answer by stating - if you were 5 years old, never ever stepped in poop, and >you stepped in poop - but your mom or dad did not "traumatize" you (I don't like to use the >word traumatize, but it's just as appropriate to my point I hope) to think that stepping in dog >poop is bad - would you have exclaimed the same?

Good news! I watched 1h French documentary documentary “Voyage au Coeur d’une secte” that was presented on France-3 in 2004 (it took me a while to find the complete documentary through emule). The investigation into Landmark Education was carried out thanks to a journalist Laurent Richard (who was not paid by France 3), equipped with a hidden camera. He did the Forum training course and worke

QuotepizzaslapThe idea of cults and particularly LGAT, is fascinating. The curiosity began when a friend of mine joined Landmark and returned as a creepy manic-depressive version of herself. It was disturbing and was similar to the way my brother acted during his heroin addiction. Forutnately, both my friend and my brother have since dropped the monkeys off their backs. Revisiting the experien

Hi, This is a very interesting and important debate. To instill the belief that the victim is fully responsible for their illness is not new. I have found this paper dating back almost 30 years ago (see below). It is also called "The ideology of choice" by some authors. This ideology serves very well New Age cults because if their methods of endoctrination causes psychologica

QuoterovebergWIN / WIN, I know, is a weird concept for most of you. Here's the thing: this technology isn't just about learning word processing, or how to balance a cheque book, its about your LIFE - . Expert manipulators (that's what landmark is all about - manipulation peoples mind using expert techniques) can easily make you believe that you are in a WIN-WIN situation, but in

QuoteGlenOne post... no response since. Why do we bother with these obvious LC drones that pop up with a "recruitment" post then disappear??? On first thought, I think this could be a very interesting debate. Because Landmarkians are all alike and they take coaching when in difficulty, it would be like a battle between us (science, logic, education) against them (obscurism, cult, man

QuoterovebergHi, I'd like to throw open a new topic on this board about Landmark Education. Only this one will be slightly different from others. I'm really really curious as to what people have to say about Landmark, and sharing my experiences and personal thoughts on the enterprise.

Hi, My ex-girlfriend was a Landmarkian. I think once they get to the ILP, they are fully endoctrinated and it's too late to intervene. This is where it becomes a cult. They will try to suck you in no matter what, or they'll kick you out of their life. They just want to "share with you ..." and bla-bla-bla, but the ultimate goal is to endoctrinate you to join their cul

Quotesonnie_deeWhat's the "empty & meaningless" pitch Doesn't it mean that your life is empty and meaningless without the big and happy Landmark family?

Researcher, Strangely enough, I found your website yesterday night even before I read your post. I was trying to find some explanations as to why Landmark’s system of logic can lead to psychosis.

My recent encounter with a Landmarkian has created psychological damage to me. I can feel it. I feel anxious, sad, powerless, frustrated. I have a strong scientific background, and I trust my judgment and my insights when it comes to interpreting information and facts, but at the same time I feel powerless because I was unable to make a difference for her.
