Journey to a Landmark Forum

Updated: Oct 7, 2019

Those who know me well, know I practice deep visceral and subconscious level transformation work.

Transformation meaning, the process of changing.

An example of a transformation is a caterpillar turning into a butterfly, yes?

Basically I seek to be, feel, and share the most brilliant and true version of myself.


Because as Wayne Dyer said, 'Don't die with your music still in you.'

And because how sad would it be for a caterpillar not to embody it's purest potential.


Last October, I was invited to be the guest of a gracious friends Landmark event.


Throughout the evening, I ran into other friends who were past attendees. I listened to participants of the weekends Landmark Forum. They all shared personal stories of complete transformation and massive break throughs in varying departments of their lives just over the course of one weekend.


A little trip to Landmarks website reads:


'The Landmark Forum offers a practical methodology for producing breakthroughs—achievements that are extraordinary, outside of what’s predictable.'


Most of what I've experienced in my journey of transformation falls out of mainstream norms.


Clearing the subconscious, healing my inner child, visceral clearings and soul retrievals have taken me from hanging off uncomfortable cliffs to the sacred reverence of traditional pipe and sweat ceremony to the complete surrender of Shibari.



I've learned mind-blowing experiences seem to be a natural phenomenon for the trauma healing and self actualizing seeker. Many of which are difficult to explain without using words like embodied, spiritual or consciousness.


They tend to be shared in a whisper with others seeking a deeper personal evolution and transformation...

Shared in a whisper for fear of rejection or perhaps the fear of being misunderstood?

I'm not sure which.


As I remember more and more that I too am a piece of the 'main-stream' fabric.

I remember separation is indeed an illusion.


For what it's worth, I'm excited to add a mainstream acceptable shift promising experience.


  • My initiation into the Landmark Forum happens the last weekend in October.

  • I couldn't be more grateful to my sponsor for inviting me as a guest last year.

  • I wonder what might come up from within me to be shifted and transformed.

  • I'm also contemplating who to invite as my special guest on the final evening.

Which leads me to some prodding....


Are you doing something today that will forever uplift your tomorrows?

Because, you understand doing more of the same will only bring about more of the same, yes?

You also understand change begins within, yes?


Be a seeker of the best you available to you. It will forever change your life.


Hugs, Melissa
