Landmark Forum is helping people around the world make a difference in their own lives. Here are some reviews left by some of our 2.8 million participants:
I noticed some of the poor reviews here are from those who have not actually done the forum -and I am sorry their experience was anything but first class like mine. I did my forum 6 years ago and my life -which was good before – has just blossomed. I even created -out of this work – my dream job! I get paid to do something others dream of! I’m a business owner and all my employees are Forum graduates. Imagine building a company where -when issues come up (and they do) – instead of getting angry, we discuss what is possible instead of what is wrong! My current assistant was painfully shy before his forum and now greets customers with a wide smile. His world has expanded now that his past is not dictating his future and his value to my company is up ten fold. Landmark is real. It works. Period. I urge whoever has had a poor customer experience to visit or call their local center again. One of the really great things about this enterprise is when something goes awry, people OWN their mistakes. I found power, freedom, full self expression and real ALIVENESS in this work. You can too.
I have been fortunate to participate in the Landmark Forum, Advanced Course and Self Expression Leadership Course. I can honestly say that these courses (particularly The Forum) were, by far, the best gifts I have ever given to myself. I was able to get to the root of what was holding me back and had numerous ‘break throughs’ during my time there. I saw lives completely transformed. People were set free from limiting beliefs and and was such a beautiful thing to witness. I have referred people to Landmark and they have had the same incredible life changing results. It’s too bad that everyone can’t go.
My husband and I attended the Forum about 17 years ago and we both found it to be transformational for ourselves and for our relationship. So much so that we both went on and completed the Curriculum for Living.
Yes, it’s hard. Confronting our fixed way of being is always difficult as we realize how we’ve created the stories of our lives. Yes, it seems like a lot of sitting for one weekend, but there’s a lot of information to be gained. Yes, there’s bad press in it, and confronting questions in the the orientation, but the large majority of participants will agree this work is very valuable.
If you focus on the process, do all the required actions, and stay open and non-judgmental with yourself and others, you’ll leave there with a much clearer vision of yourself and your relationships to others. In short, you will have breakthroughs. And aren’t you worth the $600?
I was so excited to attend the course. The first 2 days were phenomenal. The last day I got lost (in self). I didn’t want to participate because of my own insecurities. I wrote a not so good review based on my feelings. I wanted to leave. But I stayed through the night until the end. I learned so much more. This morning upon awaking all of the questions I didn’t ask were answered. I realized that this is an awesomely effective course. I want to enroll everyone I know! I would recommend all to sign up and attend the Landmark Forum. It has truly changed my perception of life. I found myself this morning not only listening to music but sincerely appreciating every word. The forum has taught me to love the life I live!
I went to the Landmark Forum by way of a recommendation from someone who said, not that it was going to fix me, but rather that it would open up “new realms of possibility”. A natural-born cynic, I wasn’t sold on the idea but I registered mostly because I trusted the person who had shared her experiences over many months. Those three days were transformational, extending and expanding how I saw the world and myself in it. Like an aperture on a camera opening to let in more light, the training in the Forum regenerated my spirit in ways that I couldn’t even have imagined, and ultimately led to a happier and more productive professional and personal life. The work I did in that room, with 170 other amazing people, encouraged me to take huge leaps into the professional unknown, which resulted in a book, published articles, a fellowship, an overseas position, and the respect of my peers.
Day 1, I found aspects of the training made me nervous, but the Landmark Forum leader’s skilled methods of facilitation and guidance encouraged me and the other participants to look at ourselves clearly, fearlessly, and gradually. The purpose was not to mock or denigrate but to see that each of us was wonderfully and completely human in all our nuanced characteristics. From seeing, we could make actual choices instead of living our lives with only a small repertoire of knee jerk reactions and perceived limitations, reactions and perceptions that we have utilized or defaulted to so many times that they felt like TRUTH when they were only habit.
The Landmark Forum offers a kaleidoscope of paradigms and distinctions, finely drawn and powerfully revealing to aid participants in becoming directors-in-fact of their own life. On the website, Landmark serves up the entire syllabus, every topic that will be covered on Days 1, 2, and 3, plus the Tuesday evening. This seminar and the others offered by Landmark are safe and fascinating training grounds that provide attendees the chance to create and live within a new and powerful possibility.
You will notice all the people that wrote negative “reviews” never actually did the forum. You can’t review something you never did. The forum is 3 days and an evening session. If you don’t complete it, you really never did the forum. I have. And I am not in a cult nor was I made to feel a certain way. Here is what I can tell you. I am an Emt,Married happily for 25 years and have two happy and successful kids. This weekend of your life will clear a lot of things up for you that maybe you have been struggling with for a long time. It’s a way too see things differently. A way to get insight into why things happen to you and what your role is in the things that happen to you. It’s not therapy. It’s 4 days with no commitment after those four days, that will make you happier and give you more freedom in your life. My marriage is better. I understand my kids in a different way. I have made up with people that I never thought I could have a relationship with again. That’s the forum. Take it. Don’t take it. No pressure. But I will tell you if you choose to take it and finish it, there is no way you won’t be a happier person.
I was introduced to the Landmark Forum by one of my classmates at Yale. At the time I was figuring out what I wanted to accomplish in the world, and was struggling with how to be a powerful person and lead a fulfilled life.
I took the Forum during my sophomore year, and thought it was phenomenal. One of the breakthroughs I had was in my academics. Previously I had spent a lot of time being frustrated with Yale students and professors, who I saw as overly focused on dry theoretical work, and ignoring the exciting, profound, and important issues going on in the world. I had decided that they were “wrong”, and that I was going to have to work “outside the system” to pursue the things I was passionate about.
What I got from the Forum was the making others wrong accomplishes nothing, and once I stopped making them wrong, I could take ownership for my experience. Based on this insight I got the power to create my experience at Yale however I wanted it to be. Rather than being resigned to frustration and dissatisfaction, I suddenly had the freedom and the tools to completely alter my environment, enabling me to do what I was passionate about. To take a single example, I couldn’t find classes that allowed me to study what I wanted to study. Whereas before I would have been resigned to being dissatisfied, post-Forum I realized that it would be way more fun and fulfilling to create my own class. Because I no longer saw professors as being “wrong”, I could build powerful relationships with them, and one of those relationships enabled the best intellectual experience of my life, where I got to construct my own class and study one-on-one with one of Yale’s most brilliant professors.
That was one breakthrough of many that I got from the Forum, and I’ve successfully applied the training to many other areas of my life. It was definitely one of the best investments of time and money that I’ve ever made.
Was the most eye opening experience of my life, was searching for so many answers, they were all addressed in the form. After the form I signed up for the advanced course which opened up so much more for myself and my family. I’m now in the leadership program, which has created an amazing new me, which was always there, I just was engulfed with fear of failure. Still have my day to day issues, but life has become so much more manageable. If you’ve taken this course or courses and are frustrated, take them again. I dealt with major frustrations through the whole thing, but kept at it. During those times I also had negative things to say, but really came to the conclusion it was all apart of my old self and mostly related to fear. Hope this message helps you if you’ve read it!! Truly love landmark and all it stands for and Feel free to inbox me for anything. Helping people is my main goal in life!! ?
I’ve done the forum, and now the advanced course, and I’ll be doing the leadership course in April 2018. Landmark gives you an opportunity to see your blind spots in your life and provides a clearing in which you are able to create possibilities you’ve never ever thought about AND be able to take action on those possibilities. You get to create an extraordinary life for yourself and you give others the ability to listen.

I registered for the Landmark forum to have a breakthrough in my sales conversion and what I got was more time with my family, financial stability, the ability to be self-expressed and authentic, self-confidence and so much more. You’ll get so much more out of it than you can even imagine and it’s worth more than the price of any of the courses. If you’re on the fence, just register and watch your life change before your eyes. To get the best value, keep your mind open, your judgements and opinions off, do the work, and always stay until the end of a course or classroom session.
