Whirled Musings

Across the Universe with Cosmic Connie, aka Connie L. Schmidt...or maybe just through the dung-filled streets and murky swamps of pop culture -- more specifically, the New-Age/New-Wage crowd, pop spirituality & religion, pop psychology, self(ish)-help, business babble, media silliness, & related (or occasionally unrelated) matters of consequence. Hope you're wearing boots. (By the way, the "Cosmic" bit in my moniker is IRONIC.)

Death lodge anniversary: We will not forget

Today, October 8, 2012, marks the three-year anniversary of James Arthur Ray's fatal sweat lodge in Sedona, Arizona. Two people, James Shore and Kirby Brown, died that day, and a third, Liz Neuman, went into a coma and died nine days later. Ray is currently serving a too-short prison sentence for three counts of negligent homicide. When he gets out of prison he will no doubt try to resume his career as a New-Wage guru. In fact, his promotional machine is still sending out spam to his list, even though he is locked up.

Here again is the post I wrote on the one-year anniversary of the death lodge.

My pal Salty Droid has written a lot about Ray on his blog;
here's a post he wrote in July, on the three-year anniversary of the death of another Ray victim, Colleen Conaway, who died at an event in San Diego. Colleen's family has yet to see any justice... but that may be in the works.

We. Will. Not. Forget.

Hey, Connie- No, we will definitely not forget! The story is tragic in and of itself, and James Arthur Ray's actions and attitude are inhuman.
