Free Landauer, Board Member
Free Landauer is a retired software engineer living on Maui. In 1994, while working as an engineer, he got into a "political" situation with a coworker. This conflict was very upsetting and he could not find a way to deal with it until he read a book by Richard Carlson called "You Can Feel Good Again." Free had a big insight then that the problem was not with the coworker but was caused by his own thinking. This book was based on the work of Sydney Banks, which is now called the 3 Principles.
Following this insight Free attended the academy at Santa Clara County which taught their students how to share the Principles. He was invited to join the board of CSC a few years ago. In addition to sharing the Principles on Maui, Free volunteers to help the marine wildlife there.
