“At 10 p.m. (Eastern) next Tuesday, June 29, ABC 20/20 will air an hour-long special devoted entirely to James Arthur Ray, magical thinking, and the oft-overlooked dangers of the New Age.” See Steve’s Shamblog for more information, and tune in (on all levels, folks!).

I’m really interested in this piece. I’m of the mind that JAR is taking the fall for the entire industry. He is not the only one to do the firewalks, board breaking, walking into the arrow, etc. What happened at the JAR event could have happened to each of them. And you can bet that they are all stepping away from the edge of the cliff that they’ve ALL been sending their followers to. I sure hope they are sending him condolence cards, and thank you cards as well. Although I doubt it. It’s an industry where the duplication of information and techniques is rampant, yet never acknowledged, referenced, or cross-referenced.  It seems important that the student believe the guru is self-made.

Funny that, following the directions, the teachings of an uneducated teacher. By which I mean a self-taught, directionless teacher. Who is actually a plagiarist, not a messiah.
