Inside the world of James Arthur Ray

Program Note: Tune in tonight for coverage of the sweat lodge deaths in Arizona. Gary Tuchman reports. Tonight on AC360° at 11 p.m. ET.


While James Arthur Ray describes himself as a "Personal Success Strategist" and "visionary," police in Yavapai County, Arizona are referring to him in other terms - including "uncooperative" in the investigation of three deaths that are being ruled homicides of individuals attending Ray's "spiritual warrior" retreat program near Sedona, Arizona earlier this month.

Ray's website is still advertising his "Spiritual Warrior" program, scheduled to take place again next fall.  The $9,695 program is 5-day Retreat entailing 40 hours of fasting in addition to the sweat lodge. With the "Spiritual Warrior" program, Ray advertises "Look, you've most probably spent your whole life staying within the lines to get what you've got (or at least a major portion of it). Join me outside the lines in this heroic quest for higher consciousness..."

    THANK YOU for covering this story! I am a former James Ray fan and I am appalled at his behavior during and since the sweat lodge tragedies! I attended his Harmonic Wealth seminar last month. I am convinced that was the gateway to the cult.
