Sweat Lodges?

As a cynic even I can only marvel at both the organizers and participants. What in the world is this all about? What were they thinking?

  • “the motivational speaker, author and self-help guru offers clients the promise of spiritual and financial wealth. The five-day “Spiritual Warrior” course during which the deaths occurred had about 50 participants who paid more than $9,000 each.”

Medicynical note: Saunas and steam baths are nice but buying into some existential benefit from them is a remarkable jump. As a medicynic I’m wary of anyone who fancies him/herself a guru. By the way what is spiritual wealth?
