Although this is not something I am connected to directly, I recommend this as one of the best resources for learning life's wisdom and what works.

This meets all the screening criteria to assure one that it is worth one's time.


YOU'LL SEE THE PROOF, THE BENEFITS AND THE CONTENT BEFORE GOING

People want to know that what they are doing isn't just something that people are excited about but of no lasting value.  The Studies show the benefits persist over the years. (If the link is brokern, enter in an internet search engine "Studies independent research on Landmark".)

"Running a business is a complex matter and the heart of any business is people. I have yet to see anything else that has such a positive impact on people's ability to relate, communicate, and perform as Landmark."

Paul Fireman
Founder & former CEO
Reebok International, Ltd. USA

People want to know how people like them have benefitted.  The testimonials (What people say) have plenty of people to pick from to find someone who is similar and you can see who participates.

People want to feel comfortable with the content.  That is accomplished via reviewing How It Works and the Course Syllabus.  


BUT WHY BOTHER?

Your life will be improved for the rest of your life, right from the start.

There is nothing more valuable.

Yes, it doesn't seem urgent and life does seem to be all right, but living life in an enhanced freer and more effective way is never something to put off.


WHY IN THIS FORMAT?

It would be impossible to put this into a book or into a video, as it involves being fully present and thinking and deciding in one's mind while one is experiencing and observing what is going on.  Only in a concentrated format like this can a profound leap forward in thinking be made.


FIRST, WORTH IS PROVEN: INDEPENDENT RESEARCH STUDIES

Several independent research studies show it to be of the highest value, higher than any other proof I've seen on any organization.  (See Studies.)  

Not only was it valuable in many life areas, a surprising percentage of participants called it "one of the most valued experiences of my life", and over 94% felt that the Landmark Forum made a "profound lasting difference in the way they live their lives."  99% said the Forum was interesting and challenging.

“Overall, the Landmark Forum is perceived to be a highly effective program that delivered on its promises and left its customers feeling satisfied with the results they experienced.”

BUT, WHAT AREAS IS THE WORTH IN?

Extracted from some of the independent research studies, 90+% of the participants report:

Practical value that is enduring for their life - "well-worth the time and cost"

Better understanding of relationships and their role in them.

Nearly every participant received unexpected benefits - ranging from the ability to control weight to achieving personal and professional goals.

Benefits were reported in terms of enhancement in:

Happiness
Relationships, especially in eliminating resentment, increasing listening and
  empathy, greater closeness and move loving, enhanced problem solving
  skills, among other things
Significantly higher levels of self-esteem, motivation, self confidence
Income (and work performance) often increased, but with more life balance
Radically changed and sustained the way individuals relate to their own
  development
"Insight into how to become more effective and/or access to a way of being which they had not thought possible.”  Harvard Business School Case Study

And many more.  See the Studies, the testimonials (from highly accomplished individuals to "regular folks") under What people say, and below.


ITS VALUE IS IN ALTERING "PARADIGMS" TO FIT REALITY AND EFFECTIVENESS AND BLOW OUT WHAT DOESN'T WORK IN LIFE

The title of this section is what I believe is the primary underlying value from which all the other values are derived.  "Paradigms" are ways of looking at life, including one's beliefs.  Most people have simply not refined their beliefs to what will allow them the most happiness in life.  From those people I have personally known, even those who already were successful and happy felt the workshop was very valuable.


IT IS RECOMMENDED FOR ANY HUMAN BEING

Other than psychologically or highly learning impaired, I highly recommend this to anyone.   It benefits people across the spectrum.   See Who Participates.


WHAT ARE ITS CONTENTS, SO I CAN SEE INTO WHAT IT WILL BE

You can see what happens day by day from simply reading the Course Syllabus.  

Individuals who have participated in it have done videos in You Tube, so enter something like Landmark Forum Review.

From seeing many, many people who have used this resource, they all have benefited, though the degree varies according to their level of participation while in the workshop(s) and their willingness to complete their understanding of the tools and viewpoints taught.  All people who are at all alive and willing (and not totally disjointed or nuts) will benefit in my opinion.  See the surveys that externally validate that opinion (on the Landmark website or as excerpted in a different way on "Landmark Education - Excerpted Summary of Surveys".

Read their introductory materials on the Landmark Forum and link into the studies on the page called Find Out About The Landmark Forum: Studies.

Get an idea of what happens each day by linking on that page to Course Syllabus.   You can get an education just from reading the syllabus, if you really look at rather than just peruse it.

Introduction to the Landmark Forum - These are regularly available and present an opportunity to ask any questions and to have an organized presentation, all of which are presented by trained private individuals who do not work for or get paid by Landmark, as they believe the trainings are so valuable that they want to support the process for all individuals.  Although I   signed up just on the recommendation of a friend, I believe it would be useful to most people to attend an intro (which are done by a volunteer graduate of the Forum, at the same time as the seminar for the graduates). 

Of course, signing up directly makes plenty of sense, after reviewing the website materials.  On their website, click Attend An Introduction, then 
"contact your local office"  (or just click this link now), choose the country, press search, then pick the location nearest you and call.

Taking the Landmark Forum will definitely be worth your time!

Link to See It In Action and click on the individual topics to get an idea of some of the things that are discussed.  There are some very profound things covered in the Forum.  Go through and review the whole set of options.

     The interview of Michael C. Jensen, Professor Emeritus, Harvard   
           Business School provides an interesting analytical view of the benefits
           he received from the Forum.

      The Chairman of Reebok expresses well what it accomplishes and the
            value to the business.  All the interviews are worthwhile listening to. 
            See what he wrote, below.

Under the  Introduction to The Landmark Forum video section (oops, they changed their format, so just enter the phrase in YouTube's search engine).

Upper left corner:  "What you don't know that you don't know."
Middle left: "Stuck with view of life that it is fixed and a particular way and how create that in our languaging."  More power to shift what isn't shifting now.
Lower left:  "Not creating the future to look like the past."  Having a future that is open for invention.
Upper right:  "The vicious circle."  "What happened" versus "the interpretation/story about what happened".  Not believing the interpretation and not getting stuck in it over and over.
Middle right: "Rackets: The payoff and the costs"  Complaining but keeping acting a fixed way, with huge costs. 
Lower right:  "The context inside of which you are doing what you're doing - and leaving it unexamined"  Changing the context to work much better for you. "The context is what is decisive."


THIS IS ABOUT YOUR LIFE!

This is about your life and you should spend the time checking out the information, for you have the opportunity here to take one of the most valuable learning experiences in your life.


ANSWER FOR YOURSELF: IS IT WORTHWHILE FOR ME?

Is It Worthwhile To Do This Training? - Yes, without a doubt, if you have a pulse and are not totally spaced out.  Though people have gotten a tremendous amount out of it just from taking the workshop, I recommend you set aside at least another day to review and tie down the materials (from your notes) and to list the decisions and follow actions you will do as a result of it.  

Actually I can't see how there is anybody who could not get a benefit.


WHAT OTHERS SAY

Lots of "testimonials" from all walks of life and all types of people.

From "What People Say"

"Running a business is a complex matter and the heart of any business is people. I have yet to see anything else that has such a positive impact on people's ability to relate, communicate, and perform as Landmark."

Paul Fireman

“…Landmark’s programs have had an impact on my life that has expanded over many years and have enhanced my experience and practice of my faith…”

Otis Charles

"The Landmark Forum has made an enormous difference in my ability to relate to my family, friends, colleagues, and the people in my community. The culture in which I grew up seemed to impose a certain limit or ceiling on a woman's professional status. In The Landmark Forum, I found the courage and confidence to move beyond those limits and achieve greater levels of advancement, self-expression, and effectiveness. In my family as well, I found myself able to establish relationships beyond the point where they normally would have stopped. As a result, the foundation we've created together has become a source of strength that carries us easily through life's ups and downs."
