Re: “I am Annoyed and Disappointed

I totally understand why they may want their staff to do The Landmark Forum. It makes for workability. It's totally empowering and no, it's not a cult. I am sure there's much more to the story with this Ash chick. If I owned a company, I'd demand that everyone do it up front. It takes people's victimy, stories away. Shit, it's cheap, it's effective and it only takes 3 days! The whole "pressure" thing is bullshit. I went through a leadership training program there and we were taught to always honor a "no" by walking away the minute a guest said it. "Pressure" -no such thing.
I do not know why Landmark is not represented in the world for what it truly is, something sooooo much more effective than therapy, IMHO. I've seen people bust through issues they'd been talking about with therapists for years.

People LOVE the drama of calling it a "cult".It may be the kind of cult that empowers people to go out in the world and make a difference and to make peace with their familes, that kind of cult. My landmark Forum Leader said, "Some of you will want to continue education here, and some won't. We want you to leave and use this in the world!"

Why does no one call the catholic church a cult?
