Not even a few deaths can keep "spiritual warrior" James Arthur Ray down.

The self-help guru says on his Web site that he plans to continue his work "helping" those seeking whatever snake-oil he happens to be selling at the moment.

"These have been the most difficult 10 days of our lives," Ray wrote. "People are throwing out accusations and disparaging me and our mission. Yet despite that, and despite considerable criticism, I have chosen to continue with my work. It's too important not to."

Just gonna throw this out there real quick: James Ray is the focus of an investigation into a program that left three people dead and more than a dozen seriously injured. He now vows to continue his "important work."

If you're still willing to go to this guy for some "self-help," you're an idiot. If you even know anyone who would let this guy offer them anything more than a firm handshake, you're an idiot by association.
