I was one of the "originals" on James Journey of Power, beginning in August 2001, when the Journey had just been conceived. Like Connie, I went to all his events, (tho not in so short a time frame as she and Richard), and also "Dream Teamed" a number of events. I implored my husband to try just one event, as he thought I was perhaps getting into a cult from hearing about some of the activities we did. He went and was convinced that it was worthy of his time and money also. James is a Master Teacher, and we learned so much from him, and the other participants became like a family to us also. We still maintain ties with quite a number of people we met in this way. But at the time the WWS (World Wealth Society) was introduced, we decided that we could not spend that kind of money, and that James was heading in the wrong direction. My husband and I attended Spiritual Warrior in November/Dec 2007, at the time I was turning 61. It was a good experience overall, but there were warning signs then. One girl we were physically close to in the sweat lodge clearly had a hard time, and could not get out of the lodge on her own. My husband and another physician worked with her, and later sent a message to James, warning that he needed to have medical personnel specifically stationed for this kind of problem. I also got to know Connie at this event, as she was in my "Warrior Group", a small group which met periodically during the week to do assignments and talk about the material.
Connie's book is well written, honest, and thoughtful. She makes no sensational judgments or condemnations that cannot be substantiated by many others of us who attended. It was interesting to me to see the progression of events after we left.

I was truly amazed by Connie's journey. Even though this journey was with James Ray, the book is mostly about one woman's journey to find herself and prove to herself that she could face her demons and change her life.

Of course I was interested in the "James Ray" connection, but the book is so gripping and personal that I found that he became a bit player within Connie's story. Connie wrote an amazing story. It took a lot of courage to write this book, as she seems to be an ordinary person who came upon what she thought was a person who would lead her into enlightenment, only to find out in the end it is all within her to change herself.

I highly recommend this book. Perhaps by reading it you too can change your life and outlook without needing to line the pockets of yet another wonderful guru.

Thanks for your courage in writing this book Connie.

Settle in for a ride through the world of James Ray alongside Connie Joy. Connie brings you into his world, the highs, the lows, the wondrous and the horrendous. Journey with her through her quest for personal growth via Ray, his seminars and teachings. Experience through Connie her journey that started with such high hopes and expectations that led to confusion, to frustration then disappointment and finally to tragedy. Be prepared to meet the "emperor" James Ray and then experience the unraveling of trust and faith in a leader that eventually led to questioning, "Does the emperor have no clothes?" then the discovery of the definitive answer. There is much to consider when reading Connie's book. There is much to experience. Go to Egypt and then, later, Machu Picchu. The trips will be exhilarating and worth your time investment. Remind yourself while reading that this is a nonfiction book. Connie's truth is definitely stranger (and more compelling) than fiction.

If you want to get more insight in what lead all these people to enter the sweat lodge with James Ray, this is the book to read. Connie does a great job describing what went on in the world of James Ray. She was part of his "inner circle" and describes what that was like. You will also learn more about what his student went through, as Connie is very open about her own experiences and describes her own sweat lodge experience just two years earlier in great detail. I could not put it down and highly recommend it.

Having read every book I could find about the James Ray sweatlodge tragedy, this book is by far the most comprehensive and sensitive telling of the story. Connie Joy begins with her experiences meeting the charismatic James Ray long before his meteoric rise to fame and popularity. We see that with his charisma and wealth come personality changes that seem to slowly evolve Ray into a narcissistic monster. By the end of this compelling narrative it becomes clear how more than fifty intelligent and educated adults go trustingly into that sweatlodge. It is ironic that Ray's devoted followers gave their all (and $10,000) to live up to what he expected of them, and then James Arthur Ray stood aside and denied even knowing the names of the victims, sending them to hospitals under John and Jane Doe, preventing even the notification of families. Connie's story outlines the tale of the most egregious corruption of wealth and fame, resulting in the death of three persons and trauma of countless others.

If you want to read just one book about this tragedy, choose this one!
