PRLog - March 9, 2011 - BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Opening arguments began March 1st for the manslaughter trial of James Arthur Ray, the self-help and success guru charged with the deaths of three in an Arizona sweat lodge ceremony. Detectives and the prosecution used Connie Joy’s book Tragedy in Sedona: My Life in James Arthur Ray’s Inner Circle to provide insight on Ray and his events. Joy, a participant in 27 Ray events, is a resource for local and national media, including CNN’s HLN programs “ISSUES with Jane Velez-Mitchell” and TruTV’s “In Session,” KGTV in San Diego, and KTVK and KNXV in Phoenix. Connie awaits interviews by “Dateline NBC,” “The Early Show,” “TODAY,” among others as the trial progresses over the coming months.

Tragedy in Sedona (Transformation Media Books; 2010; ISBN 978-0-9845751-6-9) is a riveting behind-the-scenes look at the rise and fall of "Rock Star of Personal Transformation" James Arthur Ray, one of the stars of the hit film The Secret and guest on TV shows like Oprah and Larry King Live. Joy takes you on her personal and candidly revealing journey—from being a devoted participant of Ray’s “Dream Team” to trying to warn others. Tragically, her prediction that someone could be seriously hurt came true in October 2009 when three people died and 18 participants were injured during a sweat lodge run by Ray and his staff.
