I read the news article recently about two people who died while participating in a sweat lodge ceremony. I didn’t realize until today that the event was sponsored by James Arthur Ray, author of Harmonic Wealth: The Secret of Attracting the Life You Want. This new age how-to-get-rich book was endorsed by Oprah. Ray was also featured in the film, The Secret, the movie based on the loathsome book that implied, among other things, that sick and disabled people could cure themselves if only they wanted to badly enough. Participants in the sweat lodge paid as much as $9,000 to participate. I’m sure Ray can afford to pay any damages brought about by criminal negligence lawsuits.
