Re: Anybody ever attend the "Landmark Forum"?

I attended an EST (Landmark's predecessor) seminar in the late '70's, which was essentially a kind of group therapy with a very large group. I don't know how much it has changed, but I found it moderately useful. The message at that time was that you take as much responsibility for yourself and your situation as possible, which in turn gave you the power to change it. Pretty simple. The process could be confrontational at times and I assume they don't want people to come completely unglued, psychotic, violent or whatever. I don't remember any form - there may have been one - but this is the age of lawsuits. I would not take too much offense at the questions. My inclination in these situations is to lie about mental illness, hospitalization etc. Unless your trying to buy an assault weapon, it's nobody's business. Best of luck.

> 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.
