What Did I get Out of Participation in Landmark Worldwide A Quick Look

Landmark Worldwide is one of the most powerful education and training programs in the world which provides hands on training in producing dramatic results in those areas where we have not been able to produce results (only program of its kind).  It empowers and enables you to live life powerfully and live the life you love by making you capable of getting what is important to you and your life. It is designed to cause positive and permanent shifts in various areas of your life.

I did the Landmark Forum in July 2009 and participated in various courses offered by Landmark Education.  I created dramatic and positive shifts in overall quality of life and in particular the following areas:

Very little anger and can dismantle it without suppressing it.
Found out the source of my anger in incidents in the past and narratives I held as gospel unquestionable truths about her and learnt to dismantle them.
