"What started as a simple project for a class I was amazed at this event has blossomed into a full blown out Wine Festival," Said Alan ceo Barcelona.  As a part of his SELP project for Landmark education, Alan has planned a Charity Event that will be an annual client appreciation party for the clients’ of Barcelona. This event was so successful that Barcelona is now planning on it's next wonderful affair A WINE TASTING.  The theme of the original Hola Barcelona Party was "Generosity" to bring much needed funds to Children’s groups in the inner cities.  "I would have never imagined this, when I started working on my SELP project in the spring of 2006. I was planning on having a small group of friends together at a local restaurant and request a donation from each of them to go to a local charity. Well that's how it all started! Next thing I know the small party had developed into a large size event "Hola Barcelona" and we raised lots of money for a Los Angeles Based charity. The event was such a success that they day after I said to myself I will do this again in 6 months!! Well guess what? Now I am planning on the 1st Annual Valley Wine Festival  and we are expecting crowds of up to 1000 people."

About SELP & Landmark Education
The Self-Expression and Leadership Program
Express yourself fully, make a difference, be a leader.
Each of us has experienced a sense of possibility - moments where we imagine things as they could be, and yet we hold back. Concerned with circumstance, what others might think, or lack of interest; we don't act on our vision. The Landmark Self-Expression and Leadership Program provides the know-how to establish an environment that invites and allows for your self-expression.

Each participant in this program designs a project that takes him or her into a community of people. There, they discover firsthand what it means to be fully self expressed and provide leadership. Through this course, you will express your thinking and ideas effectively in a way that calls forth the alignment, cooperation, and partnership of others. Visit our Graduates LIVE! and Grads Making a Difference sections to see what graduates of this course have accomplished.

Program Logistics
Come to know self-expression and leadership as an occasion of creativity and vitality that enriches every aspect of your day-to-day life. Your classroom work will come alive when you take on a project of your choosing in your community and apply the abstractions.
The Landmark Self-Expression and Leadership Program takes place through dialogue and exercises during a three-month period. Participants meet monthly on a Saturday or Sunday from 10:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m.; in addition, during weeks when no Saturday or Sunday meeting occurs, a three-hour evening session is scheduled. (There are a total of 12 evening sessions.) Prerequisite: Completion of The Landmark Forum and the Advanced Course.
