The site appeared recently, and already has an interesting selection of what people achieved in their life out of the Landmark Team Management And Leadership Program.

Additionally, the site has information about the Landmark Forum, and Landmark Education Communication Curriculum, and promises many more reports from participants about what they achieved from those courses.

Well worth a look, especially as they have an up to date link's page of other sites about the Landmark Forum and Landmark Education.

It'd be nice to see more than one picture though :O)

Loving possibility ? What's the score

Here's a popular and lively site: ILovePossibility Landmark Forum grads site

It appears to be a portal of news of what is happening around the world among people who are passionate about what they got from the Landmark Forum and other courses by Landmark Education.

What I love about it is that the name is so reflected in the content of the site.

"I Love Possibility" ? It sounds weird at first. People do a course, and get lots of things as possible and start living a life that for me was previously "well that's okay for Richard Branson, but I'm not like him, I'm not blah and I can't get people to do things".

Then what happens:
  • Some people complete the course, tell a few friends and go live a life that is more relaxed and fulfilling than was previously possible.
  • Other's, they get the bug! For them it's "hey, this stuff is great... Imagine what it would be like if everyone got to live from what's possible, rather than self-imposed limitations they made up about themself". They're the people you find at :O)

They also have a great page: Links to Possibility: the latest websites from Landmark Education and by Landmark Forum graduates

Have a look around... it's rather lively!

Review of: Landmark Forum: Not an Answer, An Opening

"Landmark Forum: Not an Answer, An Opening" is a website created by Steve and his family about the impact that the Landmark Forum had on their lives.

It is interesting that he and his wife met while assisting on a Landmark programme. Assisting is something that is held up by people who haven't done the Landmark Forum as being wrong. To me, it is is quite simple. The Landmark Forum costs significantly less than traditional training courses, and it is because people willingly give up their time to assist with courses that this can happen.

But why ?
Because during the course, someone pointed out that there are some people who had given their time for free in order to allow the course to happen in the way that it does. Someone will have suggested that people interested in doing the same, let someone know. The participant was interested and let someone know. Simple eh?

Yes, but what's in it for them ?
Assisting is a training course in it's own right. Entirely different, but still training. People coming from all walks of life do the Landmark Forum, and in assisting, they get to step beyond themselves in supporting other people who are doing the course. There are experienced staff who lead the assisting team, so it provides a safe environment for people to take themselves on.

Typically someone who takes on assisting ends up taking on a leadership role in their work, because the assisting programme gave them an opportunity to regularly step out from their self-imposed limitations, into what is possible for them.

Clearly this has happened for Steve and Sandy.

Other blogs

Here are some other blogs that are growing too:

Where now?

Here's me looking at the US election results, and thinking "Where now?". I'm so disappointed the that more than 50% of the people of the US seem to be following George Bush on a, dare I say, righteous nationalist path, in the same way that Germany followed Hitler.

Can it really be true that so many people are drawn to fear, rather than hope.

Well, there's only one thing for it... to bring some hope into those lives by cleaning up the internet, so I'm starting this blog with true intention, to bring possibility into the world!

Four years ago, I did a course called the Landmark Forum. I got to see war and hatred for what it is: someone being right, and someone else therefore being wrong.

In the Landmark Forum, I got to see that right and wrong is always a matter of opinion... as opposed to being fact/reality.

The Landmark Forum is the experience that blew away my view of what I saw as possible for myself, for those around me, and for the world.

So. My aim is simple. To open up what is possible for the world by moving forward the conversation for what is possible on the internet. And that means... getting what people got out of the Landmark Forum high up in the search engine rankings, rather than having "I'm right, you're wrong" negative rubbish there instead.

So. From here on in, it's time to write up every site I see that has something positive to say about what is possible.

Next on my list is to find sites by people who've done the Landmark Forum, and to review them.

Try starting here: Sites about the Landmark Forum and Landmark Education

That's it for now.
