I went to Landmark and could only handle 5 hours. I just sat there thinking "what a bunch of losers!!" they all knew what their issues were but did nothing to fix them. 
And yes it's like a cult, that was a waste of my $$

Landmark is neither religious nor is it a cult. It is an educational personal development training organization designed to help people improve their relationships and quality of life. I might be helpful to watch the informational videos  (http://www.landmarkeducation.com/)  and have some conversations with graduates before making blanket derogatory assumptions. I have personally taken quite a few courses  with the Landmark and feel that they contributed greatly to my abilities to communicate with others, clarify my dreams, and get into action to create a life I love.

The "cult" the articles are referring to is Landmark Forum, a self responsibility training seminar that helps individual look at how they treat others and examine their expectations of others behaviors.  While this organization is under scrutiny all the time for it's believe in self responsibility and how it's people continue to connect and maintain contact, it is really nothing more than an organization like TED.com.  The underlying difference is the study of Self Responsibility vs. Technology. 
 
Yes, Cafe Gratitude is suffering under the weight of law suits for unusual management principles and the current, very outdated form of management, which relies on systems of degradation in order to get results, is very toxic and abusive.  Cafe Gratitude's exploration of new management style should be applauded even if it has flaws.  While I agree that pooling tips is a bit of a problem in other restaurants, I also understand that sections in Cafe Gratitude are not defined the same way, it's a little hard to understand whether or not the suit there is really about the tips or just an aggressive lawyer.  As for mandatory classes, many offices require mandatory classes for employees, some of which are reimbursed and some are not.  All in all, I see three disgruntled employees, one of which still works there - and that's saying volumes to anyone looking - trying to work out their differences and having to go to the legal system in order to do it.
 
You can research this for yourself and read the articles on line.  There are at least 5 that I could find.  There's a little too much hype and drama in the statement "front for a religious organization" than I can bear to let pass lightly.  Anyone doing their homework on this suit would know this is terrible for all concerned, but not a matter of forced religion.  It is a matter of company policy and an employees right to challenge it.  Very well done and cudo's to Cafe Gratitude for handling this well under the financial pressure.
 
Best to all,

I was a prep chef but do not have time to train but I did want to  check in and give you a heads up about cafe gratitude being a front for a religious organization that had to settle out of court about their cult like practices
I would make veggie connection else where

Lauren,
 
There are two ideas I come up with right away.  First, go to work for Cafe Gratitude.  I know at first that may seem like a step back, but, truly that organization has so much going on with raw/healthy lifestyle that it is a no brainer as the next move.  They teach a lot about healthy management styles and entrepreneurship to their employees.  You will learn, first hand, sacred commerce, a management style that deals with the emotional detoxification of your work force and business.  It is an inside track to all the latest and greatest about raw and raw management.  There is a bevy of people and organizations associated with them that are all about raw and how to integrate it into a lifestyle of health all the way around.  You will get to know everyone who is into it and be able to develop a network of contacts for business, clients, and resources.   Second, do a meetup group, at meetup.com, where you teach people what you do.  Offer classes: potlucks where you meet at the market and adjourn to a kitchen; nutritional counseling on how to get your raw to energize you and calm your nervous system; preparation for the detoxification that comes both emotionally and physically; etc.  From these two ideas you will come up with all the answers about who to talk to and about what direction you really want to go with this.  Just an idea and good luck!!

Hi Everyone! 
My name is Lauren and I moved to San Francisco in May this year.  I have been super busy, but I hope to see you all at a meetup soon!  

I am reaching out to you because I need your recommendations.  I am on a search for programs or trainings or something that will support me in taking my raw vegan/superfood/health/detox/ knowledge to the next level.  I have been a Raw Vegan Superfoodist for a over a year.  I don't consider myself a beginner, as I have spent the past 16 months devoted to studying, experimenting and of course, eating this raw vegan amazingness!    I have done (2) 10-day juice fasts, 2 short water fasts, have created over 100 of my own recipes, many of which are on my youtube channel.  I have been fermenting and dehydrating, juicing, making smoothies, elixirs, entrees, etc.  I want something or someone that can help guide me to the next level so that I can be available to offer my services and skills to the world confidently.  I really want to pursue a career in a natural healing setting, to be in a kitchen, preparing healing food & juices (with love) & to teach others to do it for themselves.  

Although I feel like I know a lot and continue to experiment and study like crazy, I feel as though I would benefit from learning from someone else that has more experience, perhaps deeper insight. Money is a little limited at the moment.  I am wondering if you have any specific recommendations for chefs or courses, or ideas of how I could apprentice/intern/work study with a local raw vegan chef.  I will need to remain in the San Francisco/Bay area for this.  I am also interested in grant programs or some way I could get funding to do a more extensive training, like a month long immersion at Tree of Life in AZ.    Any ideas or suggestions or resources you know of are greatly appreciated!
Thanks for your time.
-Lauren Amerson

"We are what we repeatedly do.
 Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit."   
        --Aristotle

"...it's a matter of switching gears, never looking back, and BECOMING that person today that you always dreamed you'd be. Entertain every thought, say every word, and make every decision from their point of view. Walk the way they would, dress the way they would dress, and spend your free time the way they would spend theirs. Choose the friends they would choose, eat the meals they would eat, and love and appreciate yourself the way they would.
These steps MUST come in order for there to be change. There's no other option, no other way... But, since that person is who you REALLY are, that makes this assignment downright effortless. Just stop being who you aren't."
