Werner Erhard is a teacher, consultant, and the creator of one of the most influential technologies of the last 30 years, the technology of transformation. This technology has been the basis for two widely popular and effective educational programs, The est Training and The Landmark Forum, as well as a successful corporate consulting business and several other enterprises and organizations. In 1983, Werner accepted the request of the newly formed Mastery Foundation to consult in the creation of a transformational program for those who minister and serve others.
