According to public service TV in Sweden, SVT, Landmark will stop its
operations in Sweden. http://www.svt.se/texttv/112.html

What can I say? Some bad publicity was all it took to break Landmark.
This simply must have happend before, elsewhere. Is this the beginning
of the end?

(The link may lead to another article after June 8th, that's why I
decided to
share (yes, share) it with you like this. For you guys who may not
understand swedish, I took the liberty to translate it into english)

Landmark slutar utveckla i Sverige


Det amerikanska Landmark Education som
ger kurser i personlig utveckling
lägger ner verksamheten i Sverige
efter att negativ uppmärksamhet fått
deltagarantalet att falla.

Enligt Dagens Nyheter brukar Landmark
fylla fem-sex kurser om året i Stock-
holm med 110-160 deltagare i varje.
De senaste kurserna har lockat färre
än 30 deltagare, enligt DN:s uppgift.

Kritiken har gått ut på att kurserna
liknar extatiska väckelsemöten vars
syften främst varit att locka fler
deltagare. Ett antal säger att de
brutit samman efter tredagarskursen.

Translation:

Landmark quits developing in Sweden

The american company Landmark Education
who provides courses in personal development,
are closing down their Swedish operations after
some negative publicity causing a falling number
of participants.

According to swedish morning daily, Dagens Nyheter,
Landmark normally gives 5-6 courses a year in
Stockholm, each having 110-160 participants.
The last few courses attracted less than 30.

The critics mean that the courses could be
compared with extatic religous revival with
the primary purpose to attract more participants.
A number of them claim they suffered mental
breakdowns after the three day course.
