I did the same after my Landmark Forum and found a support system such as I&#39;ve never experienced before. <br /><br />Your blog entry is spot on! From the word-of-mouth marketing to the rumors of &#39;cult&#39; behavior and the impact the Landmark Forum has had on your beliefs, I enjoyed your review and estimation of the course and the enterprise. <br /><br />I look forward to our next conversation.<br /><br />Peace,<br /><br />Brandi Mazesticeon<br /><br />Bee Mazehttp://www.blogger.com/profile/15786108654178772500noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-4548660171973970442.post-2926423322921501572013-04-19T11:43:01.212-07:002013-04-19T11:43:01.212-07:00Thank you, Yusuf.
