In talking about the Landmark Forum, people with experience of this self- improvement seminar describe its impact in wildly disparate ways. Janet Jenkins,* a divinity student who completed the three-and-a-half-day weekend, calls it "a sort of religion with 'I' as God," while an enthusiastic young Forum volunteer tells me it's "a three-and-a-half-day intensive introduction to ideas and philosophies that will transform your life." James Williamson, an attorney at a high-powered law firm, says, "Either it's one of the most beneficial experiences I've ever had, or it's a complete con job." Kevin Garvey, a counselor who assists people coming out of cults or cultlike groups, says, "The Forum constitutes a brilliant anti-intellectual exercise ... they take away the base that makes a moral view possible for each individual and call it freedom." Adam Kahn, who for two and a half years was deeply involved with Landmark and its advanced programs, expresses his present disillusionment by stating simply, "There's so much the Forum can't do."
