SCOTTSDALE, Arizona — A self-help author who spent nearly two years in prison for the deaths of three people following an Arizona sweat lodge ceremony is hosting several seminars in the state.

James Arthur Ray is leading discussions on how to deal with personal crisis in the Phoenix suburb of Scottsdale for two days beginning Saturday. His website says ticket holders can speak with Ray about challenges they face in their lives.

Ray was convicted of three counts of negligent homicide in the October 2009 sweat lodge ceremony he led near Sedona. Kirby Brown of Westtown, New York; James Shore of Milwaukee; and Liz Neuman of Prior Lake, Minnesota, died.

Tom McFeeley, Brown's cousin, tells KNXV-TV (http://bit.ly/1tEtJvL ) that it's an insult for Ray to hold his programs in the state where the deaths occurred.
