My ex wife got involved with Landmark for a while. I went to one meeting but I was not impressed. Especially when they locked the door during the presentation so no one could leave.
They LOCKED the door? Isn't that unlawful imprisonment or unlawful detention or some such?
I figured it was at least a violation of the fire code.
But don't ya know? Only the "weak" would complain abuot being locked in....the whole purpose of that seminar is to teach you to be a stronger person!
Sorry - my mom & Sf took "the forum" (right after they switched from being called "Est") and they kept bugging me to take it when I was a slightly unruly 13-year old.....almost forced me to take it until my father threatened to sue my mom for full custody if she ever brought it up again....he knew what a bunch of whack-jobs "the forum" was!
OK, this is completely off topic but I have to agree they are indeed whack jobs.
Three years ago my ex and I were coming back from a vacation in New England, we had a connecting flight in Atlanta, who should get on but a large group of Landmark people that my wife knew coming back from one of their seminars.
I ended up sitting next to two of them, my wife was sitting one row in front of me. I had an aisle seat, the guy sitting next to the window was wearing a tank top t shirt. There was an older guy sitting behind us, and he was giving the younger guy wearing the tank top holy heck for dressing so disrespectfully. He was not properly representing the organization and the flight home was just as much a part of the program as the seminar itself. According the older "gentleman" this younger guy couldn't be told anything because he was too stubborn to learn and no one could tell him anything because he already knew everything and what a poor representative of Landmark he was.
I sat there and listened to this guy go on. I really wish I had spoken up and said something along the lines of what I was thinking.
The guy wearing the tank top didn't bother me at all, but you, the guy with the mouth, is irritating the crap out of me. In my opinion he was an obnoxious, overbearing, control freak, and if anyone was giving landmark a bad name (aside from Landmark itself) it was him with the mouth, not the guy with the tshirt.
However, I did not want to start an argument so I just sat there wishing he would shut up trying to read my book.
