Landmark Forum and Landmark
In August 2001 Lynn drove to New England to visit some friends. Right after that she drove to West Virginia to attend another friend’s baby shower. It was a complicated trip where she needed to time her arrival time to match the schedule of a ferry, among other things. It was a nine hours driving trip. Next she drove to Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, for three days of work sessions.
When her work was done, she traveled right back to Charlotte, North Carolina, to attend her High School reunion. A lot of people asked her how could she do so much traveling in such a short time and in such a good spirit. Lynn attributes that as one of the benefits she gets from having done the Landmark Forum.
Not only was she clear what was important to her, but was able to pursue it with no effort. In this case, she was very clear that her friends are very important to her, and that she will and can do what ever it takes to nurture the friendships. And yes, she loved the trip!
Lynn took the Landmark Forum in Greensboro, NC, in November 1995. She did not have any issue in registering to do the Landmark Forum; she was curious. The invitation came from Ann Goldberger (Yandle), a friend that she highly admires and trusts. Her immediate breakthrough during the Landmark Forum was to be able to see how she was constantly asking herself: “What is wrong…….?” In the past, some seemingly random incidents would turn into an upset that made her burst into tears. Then her whole day would be ruined. That definitely does not happen to her any more.
lives in Cabarrus County, North Carolina, at the end of half a mile dirt road that ends
in front of her log cabin. Her husband Kevin also has done The Landmark
Forum and the Advanced Course. Kevin is an artist who paints the sets
used in the movie industry. Currently, he is also at
work at the Museum of the New South, where he is painting the façade
used in an exhibit on Charlotte in the thirties. They live in such a
pastoral setting among birdfeeders with the cats: Chaq, Nakita and
Redford. Also there is Milo, the golden retriever, and sometimes a
raccoon would get in to eat the pet’s food………
During the years since she did the Landmark Forum, Lynn has done many other courses that Landmark offers and she has completed the six months intensive training, (what was then called) the Introduction to the Forum Leaders Program. She was in this program when Landmark launched its 23 years long strategic intent, what was then known as Landmark Education Charter. With several others from the Charlotte area, she attended the event in Chicago in 1997.
finds Landmark Seminars very useful as a support system in her ongoing
inquiry on living a life that she loves. One major breakthrough she had
was at the time when she got the courage to tell the truth that selling
advertising was not a job she wanted to keep. She finally saw how
unsatisfying the job was for her and made a point to do something about
it. She quit the profession and went back to school. Today she is a
massage therapist and thrives on her job.
“I love the community of Landmark Forum graduates because of its diversity. I love that everyone is pursuing the same inquiry on being human”.
