Last weekend I attended a self improvement seminar called "The Landmark Forum". In their language, you might say that "I participated in the landmark forum." Because of it, I honestly feel changed for the better. At the same time, I'm tired. Maybe from learning or from working hard or maybe because I feel energized and have been pouring my energy into my traditional work and into my primary relationships. So, needless to say, I've been offline for a few days.
I'd like to describe the experience I had with the forum. It's a funny organization in a number of ways. Primarily, it is controversial because it's seen by some as a "cult". I can't really speak to that since I don't know much about cults, but I find it hard to believe that this little program could be that. I have read that the content has roots in the 70's "EST" movement, and I think I read that it's been outlawed in some countries. Admittedly, there is a strong sales element to the workshop, and that it involves the recruitment of family and friends.
