I recently signed up for the Landmark Forum, and I’m really excited about it.
Well, many years ago I went to an est guest event and almost enrolled then. Instead, I took the Lifespring Trainings and got pretty involved for several months (Basic, IPE, and Leadership). That was 1980. That was over half my life ago and I’ve lived my life differently as a result. At this point I can’t imagine my life without it. I audited Lifespring Basic Training a couple more times in the 90’s.
Recently, I downloaded The Three Laws of Performance: Rewriting the Future of Your Organization and Your Life from audible.com. I didn’t realize before I listened to the book that the authors are Landmark Forum trainers. They promote it as a transformational book, and it is. It got me interested in doing a little more.
Lifespring grew out of est and along side it. Landmark evolved directly from it. Someone once said that if est was Lavoris then Lifespring was Listerine (or the other way around; I can’t remember). I’m sure it will be another powerful, profound experience.
On Thanksgiving Day, I found myself watching Transformation: The Life and Legacy of Werner Erhard.
This book, and this film, put me in touch with the important things I learned in Lifespring and inspired me to stop the routine for a few days and again take a look at my life in this way. After all, I’m a different person now.
It all starts at enrollment, but the actual course starts in a few weeks, in Greensboro. It should be an adventure, and I’m looking forward to it.
