What does Landmark offer?

Landmark offers more than 55 different courses, with the entry level course being The Landmark Forum. While each program is complete in itself, Landmark’s basic curriculum, called “The Curriculum for Living,” is a four-part curriculum designed so that the programs build on and enrich each other. The Curriculum for Living consists of the following four programs:

The Landmark Forum
The Landmark Forum is specifically designed to bring about positive and permanent shifts in the quality of your life. These shifts are the direct cause for a new and unique kind of freedom and power: the freedom to be absolutely at ease no matter where you are, who you’re with, or what the circumstance; and the power to be in action effectively in those areas that are important to you.

The Landmark Forum in Action Seminar
This program, which is included in the tuition for The Landmark Forum, is designed to allow you to deeply integrate the abstractions of The Landmark Forum in your life. The seminar takes place over 10 evening sessions, usually during a three-month period. Each session is three hours long and provides a structure of coaching and support in converting problems to opportunities and opportunities to action.

The Landmark Advanced Course
Almost everything we know argues that living powerfully is accomplished by skillfully building on the past. The Advanced Course poses that exactly the opposite is true – that the most important determinant of our success, of who we are, and of how we function, is not the past but the future. The Advanced Course reveals the true power and possibility available to each of us as human beings – a power derived not from what is predictable but from what is possible. This course leaves you with the technology for creating and designing a future that is informed by the past but is in no way limited by the past. It gives a completely different quality to life in the present – a freedom to live powerfully now.

The Landmark Self-Expression and Leadership Program
Each of us has felt a sense of possibility and longed to express it. Yet we often hold back, concerned that it will be limited by circumstance or what others might think. The Landmark Self-Expression and Leadership Program provides the know-how to establish an environment that invites and allows for your self-expression. This program offers you an opportunity to express yourself fully, make a difference, and be a leader. Through this course, you will express your thinking and ideas effectively in a way that calls forth the alignment, cooperation, and partnership of others.


What other people say:

The feedback that we have each received on these individual courses, and the entire “Curriculum for Living” as a whole, is overwhelmingly positive.

Many people say that their participation in Landmark courses resulted in immediate and dramatic shifts in terms of their ability to take effective action and go beyond existing limits. The results are far-reaching, usually touching a wide variety of areas, including relationships with friends, family and coworkers; personal productivity; career; and people’s general sense of fulfillment and satisfaction in life.

There are, of course, people for whom the programs are not a perfect fit. Sometimes people have been asked a few times if it is possible that someone could be brainwashed by attending a Landmark program. The answer is simple: Not only does Landmark in no way participate in anything that could remotely be considered brainwashing, but their programs are clearly designed with the opposite intent. People are left free to think for themselves. Sensational claims to the contrary are in no way based in facts or direct experience of the program.

There are many published opinions about Landmark, including one written by Dr. Raymond Fowler, who at the time was the CEO of the American Psychological Association. Dr. Fowler, who has no professional or financial ties to the company, observed the course on his own behalf, not on behalf of the APA, and was quite clear in his assessment:
"In my personal opinion, The Landmark Forum is not a cult or anything like a cult, and I do not see how any reasonable, responsible person could say so."

This company, Landmark, has had top professionals participate and study their programs. When you peruse their views and findings, please note their credentials – you’ll find that the experts with positive views of this company are all tops in their field. These are professionals who are leaders in my field of psychology, as well as in education and business, who have reported very positively on, and in many cases even personally endorsed, the courses of Landmark.

What about the length of the programs?
There are people who say that the courses are too long (ie: The Landmark Forum is three days of 9:00 a.m. until 10 p.m.). The programs are long, much like a high level college-summer program that is condensed to shorten the session calendar. The course time is necessary to accomplish the goals of the course within a 3-day structure.
