    50-60 people in a sweat lodge is way to many. In combination with the heat in Sedona logic would dictate that the ceremony might be dangerous to some people.

    Also, the price is outrageous! There are Native American's that will do the ceremonies for nearly free (there is usually some kind of trade or low money charge).When done properly, sweat lodge ceremonies can be very helpful spiritually.

    However, there are many "safer" ways to achieve spiritual knowledge and enlightenment.

    At what point do people use common sense and think it's not a good idea to get into a sweat tent without proper ventilation and too many people and in the blazing sun?

    Good example of "Nothing is free."

    Some don't realize that current NFL owners and the commissioner have a a say in who owns a team.

    Politicians that have affairs is of no interest to me. The issue that is important is their hypocrisy. I'm really tired of them making rules that we are to follow while those hypocritical politicians have their own set of rules.

    somehow it doesn't seem right to use ancient rituals for profit. Maybe it's just me, but it doesn't seem right.

    this story about the "sweat lodge" doesn't sound good!

    God bless Jaycee. It is so wonderful to hear that she is doing well. It will take a long time to heal. I only hope the media and the public respect her privacy and let her make up for all she's lost all these years without intrusion.

    Animals are a wonderful form of therapy. they are used all the time.
    they have "therapy dogs" that are trained to work esp. with people, usually children who are going through things, illnesses, (cancer, surgery's, etc.

    Jaycee looks so good. She's brave to let us all into her life so soon. I'll have to pick up this issue of People.

    I think Governor Perry (TX) is playing the cover my butt game! Next thing you know he'll be walking the Appalachian Trail with Governor Mark Sanford (SC) and studying Family Values with Sen. Ensign (NV)!

    Jaycee is lucky to have a supportive family. There must be so much to tell of her story.

  25. starr, formerly known as vincent

    Wasn't it reported that Jaycee Loved horses before she was kidnapped.? Maybe that's why they are using horses for therapy.

    It is so great to see how well Jaycee is doing that creep that did this to her should be strung up, a real sick person

    I'm bothered bu the fact that a "professional" photographer contacted people magazine...someone is benefiting financially while Jaycee and her kids and the whole family are still healing...I'm curious if the photographer suggested this to jaycee?

    I don't like the death penalty but if the argument is on the evidence, we have to get into that.

    I don't think Sen Ensign or Mr. Hampton were thinking clearly, don't think they conspired to violate lobbying laws.

    Whew tremendous amount of info in Erica's rept. Yes, maybe the pictures will satisfy hopefully not whet the public's appetite for info. I hope the equitation therapy helps, the Dugard family does need time together to heal and reconnect.

    i sure hope JayCee's new normal is more exciting than merely just an adjustment.

    horses are wonderful creatures – very intuitive – they have a very calming demeanor.

    I wish Jaycee and here family all the luck. I can't begin imagine where she and her family went through.

    Can Jaycee ever have a normal life?

    October 14, 2009 at 10:47 pm |
  34. starr, formerly known as vincent

    I am thankful that it was Jaycee's decision to go public.

    I pray that the media will leave the family and Jaycee alone, especially her children.

    Great reporting Erica
