> I was curious if anybody has ever attended a Landmark Forum? If so, was it beneficial? Also, what did you think of the application form asking about your mental condition, if you've ever been hospitalized, etc....and then says that they can deny your entrance to the seminar based upon how you answer the questions.
> They didn't ask any other medical questions.
> Am I 'crazy' to think that questions like that are an insult or maybe even a no-no? I mean questions like that can't be asked on a job application. What right do they have to ask those questions. After all I am paying them to attend something.
> Argh!!! I want to go, but am really put off by the application.

This is interesting; I went to college with Warner
Erhard's duaghter and have some interesting/gross
stories about that family. I will not tell them
here because frankly, I think it is possible
I could wind up in a law suit. I will only say
that the daughter (Adaire) was subjected to some rather
"unconventional" practices and that certain
"boundaries" were broken that most mental health
workers would consider inappropriate.

All the same, I do recall a friend who went though
EST in the early 80's and seemed to get something
out of it. His mother then attended which
resulted in divorce from his father. Maybe this
was good, maybe not. I've always been suspicious
of all this group stuff though, so whatever. I
like psychobabble, my friends, p-doc, and
work hard in therapy. I just don't believe in
magic bullets or quick-fix concepts that will
heal our lives; this is complex stuff that takes
effort, learning about yourself, and hanging
in there through tough times.

But then we all know that don't we...? Bye!
