I read all the sample chapters which was well over a 100 pages. I found this book deals more with the authors personal account of her life. She does relate her experience with James Ray and her involvement and membership with the World Wealth Society. I perceived her involvement with the practices were of a cooperative manner yet she writes she questioned but, not to Ray, and she remained complict with the practices. She attended 27? seminars yet she would have you believe she was disillusioned with Ray. This is a contradiction. She goes on and on popping from this life to past lives throughout the sample I read. She writes extensively about the past lives and other New Age beliefs and techniques she utilizes. If I could rate this book at a -5 I would.

In the first few pages the author admits to following Sylvia Brown, fraudulent psychic, spending $200,000.00 on JAR events, being well educated, and weighing 350lbs.

And yet ... "Woo Woo," spirituality, instead of common sense, medical, therapeutic treatment are not essential to life's process, but oddball spirituality is.

Testimonials to TM, do not fit scientific research. I'll say, listen to Connie's interviews with Carol Lieberman ... but please don't buy the book.

As a Christian I had great difficulty in reading this book, in fact I couldn't even make it through the first chapter. If you have no problem reading about the author traveling to Egypt to seek help and guidance from the Sphinx and the experience of messages she received from the Sphinx then this book's for you. As for me, it was a waste of money. Is there truly any difference between James Arthur Ray's sweat lodge and Jim Jones' kool-aid? I think not.

All Connie Joy has done is prove to the whole world that Angel Valley owner Mr Hamilton had NO EXCUSE WHATSOEVER for not having a REAL sweat lodge expert and emergency personnel on duty that fateful day for the JRI warrior workshop held on HIS PROPERTY using HIS SWEAT LODGE! If Mr Hamilton had done what he should have done no one would have died!

This James Arthur Ray conviction should be overturned just like the Amanda Knox conviction due to a sloppy investigation.

Okay, for a moment, lets pretend that the families of the three who died are all scam artists who wanted to take James Arthur Ray for every penny they could get? Just for a moment let's pretend this is the absolute truth. If they were scam artists how would they go about taking Mr Ray for every penny they could get?
That's how
On the one hand they would have you believe those three were GREAT WARRIORS and at the very same time they want you to believe they should have been treated like irresponsible children who can't decide for themselves and, here's the thing, the suckers fell for it!
Make no mistake about this: When truly GREAT WARRIORS say they are going to take full responsibility for their actions at ANY EVENT that is what they do and they don't need to sign any agreement to keep that promise. By breaking the agreement those three supposed "warriors" made with Mr Ray they have proven them to be lying phonies who were always ready to break ANY PROMISES if they felt they could make a lot of money by doing so.
