I'm interested in hearing more about experiences with Landmark. I was
considering taking the follow-up to the intro (the $550 3-day course)
but am somewhat hesitant to do so. I would really appreciate any
further info/stories on your experiences. Thanks!

The Landmark Forum is a money hungry brainwashing cult.

I survived -- many never get out.

God, I love reading the Carrot blogs! The writer so totally inspires me to be a better me. I hope that he's writing this blog, or perhaps even better, continuing to write meaningful, beautiful, powerful stuff forever, wherever he may be!

hey Lisa – thanks for your words of warning, which got me to thinking: my kids also hit me up for more of my time and more of my money every day ... and they definitely use "questionable psychological tactics" every chance they get! of course, it's up to me to draw the line with my daughters. when they know where I stand on stuff, we get along just fine. if I'm wishy-washy and indecisive, they're in my face 'til I choose.

I couldn't help draw a parallel to Landmark. to me, their premise is that I need to take more personal responsibility for the choices in my life ... whether it's telling my 13-year-old daughter that I can't drive her to the mall for the third time today or simply saying "no thanks" to the Landmark folks asking for more of my time or money.

thanks for your post ... it gave me a lot to think about!

and how about you? did you do Landmark? what do you think of it?

Nielson - I am inspired! Great work! I did the Landmark Forum when I was 17 and it completely changed my life. Since discovering FISH! I have found that "Be There" my favorite principle of the FISH! Philosophy, is so much more powerful and rewarding for all involved when you are also being authentic in who you are and in your communication. The freedom to create a life that you love is a wild ride...scary, breath-taking and joyful, all at the same time. Enjoy!

It's great you have these insights, I just have one word of warning about their provenance. Do be careful if they ask you for money or volunteer labor; there have been reports of questionable psychological tactics associated with Landmark. Some discussion of it is available on the organization's page in Wikipedia.
