“Are you with me?” These are telling words spoken
by James Arthur Ray to filmmaker Jenny Carchman
as the tale of this once‐star mo"va"onal speaker
begins to unfold. His meteoric rise and fall, as well
as his return to the industry following his negligent
homicide convic"on in the deaths of three clients at
a sweat lodge ceremony is more than just a story of
one individual. It’s a story of hope, dreams, trust,
betrayal and the quest for ‘enlightenment.’
The self‐help industry is worth $11 billion dollars a
year. It’s an industry that cap"vates those seeking
happiness, release from suffering and those longing
for a path and a leader to follow. James Arthur Ray
for many who followed him was that leader to
guide his flock. But as the story unfolds, as told by
Ray himself and also by his followers, we learn that
that path was fraught with danger and perhaps
even greater suffering.
Through honest and candid interviews, interwoven
with court footage and news archive, "Enlighten
Us" asks the important ques"ons, “What are we
looking for” and “Who has the answers” and per‐
haps even the simple ques"on “Why?”.
