Cult or not a cult?

It scares me.

Anyone ever have any experiences with this thing?

Just curious because I have two family members who have gone, and the one who went first is like a landmark zealot.

cult? probably not. it's self-help, so it works for some and scams the others.

France put Landmark International on their official list of cults. It's been referred to as a cult in numerous newspaper articles around the world.

calling something a cult is vague. people consider AA cults, single parent clubs cults - anything that will take away the spotlight of their god. i don't know much about landmark past that they take your money. i was under the impression that it was like a business/self-improvement seminar.

It is. But they get you coming back, and got numerous courses. They even have a wisdom course. So apparently wisdom can be bought now. You graduate, you work for them, you recruit for them.

IMO, people who go for these things are usually going up and down, as most of us are. You're in a down, you go to landmark, they initiate that up that probably would of happened over time anyways, you attribute it to the course, and therefore blow all your money on landmark.
Post Hoc fallocy.

Im just curious if anyone has any personal experience attending the seminar. I was doing some reading on the internet, and their's alot of conflicting opinions on Landmark for something that is just a "self help seminar".
