Guru: The Dark Side of Enlightenment

A True Crime, Society and Culture podcast
 4 people rated this podcast
When we face challenges in life, we seek answers from people we believe can help us. When tragedy strikes an exclusive retreat with a self-help superstar, many people are left to wonder: how far is too far? James Arthur Ray was an Oprah-endorsed self-help teacher who achieved fame, fortune, and influence. But friends and family members of his followers questioned his unorthodox methods, and tried to stop him. From Wondery, the makers of “Dirty John,” “Dr. Death,” and “The Shrink Next Door,” comes a story about the dark side of enlightenment. Hosted by journalist Matt Stroud.

Absolutely loving this episode. Just finished episode 4/6 and it's another great piece of work by Wondery. Very informative, and great topic. I always wondered what happened to this charlatan.
