    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.

One of my favourite podcasts

Absolutely love this podcast and I look forward to it coming out every week! One thing though, I absolutely hate the music at the end 😂 I don’t know why but it fills me with so much dread and sadness! Wonder if I’m alone in this?! So weird. Anyway love the podcast!
