A Day of
Celebration at Landmark in Bangkok, Thailand.
For weeks to the day, we in Bangkok, the graduates, the
program leaders, and the staffs have been agonizing, anxious and yet
excited to prepare our new Landmark office and ourselves
- just so we could have the best to show to
the world on that upcoming special occasion.
I could speak for myself that I was in wonderment as we went through the
preparation long before the ceremony came to be. I remembered when I
first did the first ever Landmark Forum in Bangkok in 2003.
I did not have any clue then, how my life would be so positively
impacted. Not only for myself, but also for my husband, my daughter and
many other relatives and friends. One after the other, they followed me
to do the Landmark Forum and came out more of the same, but absolutely
transformed. I could not imagine then, that from the original 80 some
graduates there were now thousands upon thousands of us in Thailand.
I recalled to be so moved by Landmark, which had brought out
the best of myself and others - so that one day I requested to
participate as one of the People Who Assist. I
began leading Introduction to the Landmark Forum, became a Course
Supervisor and led the Seminar Program. At each
training I produced delightful and breakthrough results for my self.
All this time we in Bangkok were aware that Landmark is making
a difference not only in our community but also all over the world. I
had traveled to Boston, USA, just so my teenage daughter could do the
Landmark Forum for Young People. I had the privilege to travel to Seoul,
South Korea to assist at their second Landmark Forum.
But really, when we saw our fearless leader
Jerome Downes walked down the hall and introduced Harry and Joan
Rosenberg to the local Thai graduates; we become part of the world of
transformation. It was a truly magical moment when we were so proud, but
also very humble at the same time.
It was a point in time that each of us say thank you to Harry and Joan
for what it took on their part so that we in Thailand can also
participate and reap the benefits of this exceptional education. In turn
we were deeply moved when the
staffs, the People Who Assist, and the graduates in Thailand were
acknowledged, for making the purpose of Landmark win against
all odds. It is indeed a celebration for everyone who loves possibility!
