it was amazing
Read in February, 2008

This is basically The Landmark Forum in book form. I'm very curious about the relationship between Tolle and Landmark Education, but I haven't been able to find any info on that so far. I suspect that I find this book so powerful because I've done The Landmark Forum. I suspect it might be a little too theoretical to have much practical impact on my real life if I didn't have that background and training. Read this book if you've ever considered doing the Forum to get a little taste of what the Forum is about, and then go do the Forum to have it actually make a difference in your life.

Karin I just heard Oprah say "Create the possiblilty of being open" today on her show-- I have thought for years she did The Landmark Forum. If she didn't it sure seems like it. I know that Dr. Phil has. I was wondering if this book would be worth the read since I have been taken many Landmark courses.

I agree, read the book and then go do the Landmark forum and be blown away.

Catherine I did the Forum as well. Radically changed my life. This book basically reinforces those distinctions. At least there's no pressure to do the SELP! :~))

A3aan I don't know about Eckhart Tolle doing the Landmark Forum, but I do know one thing: I would not have "gotten" his book the way I did, if I had not taken the Landmark Forum before reading it. I've red a lot of similar books before, but they always had an impact on me like: "yeah, that's so true! I should do that to!" Without really doing something. So I'm sure I agree with Karin. Maybe you should do the Landmark Forum first and then read all that great stuff about life!

Eyal Levin Great comment. I came here via a google search "eckhart tolle landmark education". I also did the forum (big satisfaction :) and wondered if there's a connection between it and eckhart's books. Will keep looking.

Lacey Mauro I have a list of 45 book titles to choose for a college class, and this book was on the list. After reading your review, and all the comments, it will definitely be my book choice! I too have taken the forum, as well as many other Landmark courses, and live by what I learned every day! It's been 11 years since I took the forum, and I look forward to the refresher! Thank you for your honest review of this book!

H.M.C. H.M.C. I found the Landmark Forum to be to attached to things that Tolle suggests we need to let go.

H.M.C. H.M.C. *too

Haha there's that ego!

Jens Schriver Just like Eyal, I googled "eckhart tolle landmark forum" to discover if there was a direct connection between the two. "A New Earth" is great reading for me as I really wanted some guide book after taking Forum. There's certainly a lot of overlap and alignment between this book and the course.
