While I was in CECNY, Consulting and Educational Center of NY, I acquired a number of behaviors that have helped me destroy my life and relationships. I started to see the world by those who "Get IT" and those who "Don't Get It." 


I even spoke with the vocabulary and loud/stern tone of voice that I was taught in CECNY. After leaving CECNY after doing Discovery, Transformation, Leaders' Journey, and Mastery, I started to see myself as a "coach" and someone who can advise others on their life struggles although I had no education or training in social work or psychology. I have ruined others' lives as well as mine. 


If you are involved, thinking of getting involved, or have attended any of these "life improving" workshops by CECNY or Landmark or one of the many other workshops that use different names and use similar methods around the U.S. Canada or around the world, I advise you to seek help, find the truth behind these workshops, and learn about their history. It will help you to get out of the cult mindset that they imposed upon you.


In France an undercover documentary was done on Landmark Forum, which is like the initial Discovery workshop of CECNY and other companies that have these seminars/workshops. The documentary done in French (with English subtitles) reveals how they use specific speech patterns as well as deprivation from outside influences (including light and even restrooms) as part of their methods. After this documentary, Landmark Education was declared a cult in France leading to Landmark's exit from that country. 


These workshops in the United States must be exposed for what they are. Below you will see links to the documentary as well as others' involvement experiences in these forums.

"Journey to the Land of the New Gurus", originally known in French as"Voyage Au Pays Des Nouveaux Gourous".

This is a French documentary with English sub-titles.

CECNY is unethical


POSTED: Tuesday, June 07, 2016

 I had a friend who attended several of their programs back in 2013. After utilizing what he was taught, he leveraged our friendship and trust relentlessly to convince me to sign up for one of these programs. Like a fool, I obliged and gave the deposit of over $1,000 for courses not even listed on their website yet in June of 2013. The very next day, I decided I just could not afford the cost at the time and was overly pressured by someone who I trusted. Needless to say, I sent multiple inquiries to CEC and never received any type of response. So I guess they did give me somewhat of an education as I'll never make that mistake again. $1,000 down the drain. Stay away from these people - they are scam artists.
