While the Landmark Forum isn’t for everyone, and too much of a good thing can be a bad thing, I think it’s important to acknowledge that some of those who went through it ended up doing some really cool things.
As expected, the crowd drank the Kool-Aid with great enthusiasm, questioning nothing, with a few vocal dissenters resisting the idea that their lives held no meaning. Some people had hunched forward, their head in their hands, crying uncontrollably, while others looked elated, as though all their burdens had been lifted.
I spent $420 for the privilege of spending a holiday weekend — three 13-hour days — sitting in a conference room near LAX with 75 strangers. That was the price of admission to The Landmark Forum, a seminar that promises to transform the lives of its attendees in profound, permanent and meaningful ways.
