Major newspapers and magazines have written stories about the landmark forum based on having reporters take the landmark forum and give a personal account. Here are links to some of those stories, with quotes which sum up the reporter’s take on the course.
TIME Magazine: “I benefitted tremendously from the uncomfortable mirror that the course had put in front of me. With [Landmark Forum Leader] Roger Smith’s mantra of personal responsibility playing on a loop in my mind, I started to take stock of the quality, not just the quantity, of the time I spent with my family.”
The Guardian: “The Landmark Forum is not magic. It is not scary or insidious. It is, in fact, simple common sense delivered in an environment of startling intensity.”
Huffington Post: “I take full responsibility of the mediocre to bad things I have done in my life. Most importantly, I try not to judge them. And even though I do not ask for it, I get it back: forgiveness, gratitude, even admiration. A weight lifts off my shoulders.”
New York Times: “Two months after the Forum, I’d rate my success at 84 percent. I’m more prone to telling loved ones and colleagues, in person and without glibness, that I love or admire them.”
Health 24: “I took a lot of valuable lessons from the Landmark Forum. I honestly feel that I have more insight into my life…with my new-found knowledge, when looking back at my life I can see that it wasn’t just a sequence of random events, but determined much more by myself than I ever could have imagined.”
The Press, New Zealand: “Landmark applies a Humanist understanding of the human condition. our essential being lies in our social interactions. Meaning is created and enjoyed in the actions which bind individuals to their cultures. It is not static but negotiated. And consequently, dysfunctional lives need to be fixed not by going inside a person’s head, looking for the broken bit, but by tackling the social sphere where the self really exists…Thank you Landmark. We’re transformed because we have the techniques to transform the social setting that has been shaping and constraining us all along.”
Forbes Women: “At the Landmark trainings, they teach you to have an honest dialogue with yourself, to find out to what degree we are ruled by attitudes and fears from the past, to what extent we do or do not permit ourselves to forgive, to love, to dream and in general, to lead a full life and realize our potential.”
