Lucky to be an Artist
This autobiography by British artist Unity Spencer—a beautifully produced book published by Unicorn Press—mentions her experience of The Landmark Forum. Unity Spencer is a well-known artist and the daughter of the famous painter Stanley Spencer and artist Hilda Carline.
In this book, Unity reflects at age 84 on her many years of unhappiness and her struggle to enjoy painting. She credits The Landmark Forum with ending the depression that had been present through most of her adulthood. The book’s chapters are organized according to decade, and the one on the 2000s begins with her account of her breakthrough via Landmark:
“In 2001 I joined a Landmark Forum weekend. We all had to get up on the platform and say who we were and what we were giving up. I introduced myself as the possibility of daring, joy and love and that I was giving up being the victim. As I said those words, the depression that had dogged me most of my adult life left me in a flash and I never suffered it again.”
