Talking About Guru: The Dark Side of Enlightenment

We need to shake up the status quo.

Laura Tucker reflects on her involvement in the Wondery podcast Guru: The Dark Side of Enlightenment.

In this episode I share what it was like to participate in this huge podcast and why I lend my voice to projects that tell the story about what happened at James Arthur Ray’s Spiritual Warrior retreat in October 2009 when Kirby Brown, James Shore, and Liz Neuman died after a “sweat lodge” ceremony gone wrong.

I am so grateful to everyone who has become emotionally invested in this story, and who want more and want better for the industry that has sprung up around being your best self.
