Eek. At Amazon.com, Charlie Hayes' profile says:
"The story" ... Charlie Hayes (14 Dec 1936 - ) 50's was first a jazz musician, then a professional racing driver; intensely active in spiritual disciplines from 1974, precipitated by the devastating loss of his home, wife, most of his possessions, and his Ferrari business, accompanied by a complete "nervous breakdown," for which he was hospitalized for a month. This led to a long search for what had these seeming personal crises happen, culminating in a series of interactions beginning with Siddha Yoga in 1974, TM in 1975, est and Werner Erhard in 1978, and on through near 30 more years with people through whom the ancient Teachings flow without personal agenda, with whom there is Heart-Resonance. Traveled to Australia for meetings with a student of the Guru Nisargadatta Maharaj - "Sailor" Bob Adamson - in September 2005. Loves Tony Parsons, Landmark Education, Byron Katie and others who help make realization of our Original Nature easy and obvious, through a series of simple, yet profound, pointers to what is Real and what is not. The author of three books on spirituality, Charlie currently participates at Landmark Education, and now offers experience-based Life Coaching, with its foundations both Nondual Spirituality and The Work of Byron Katie, in Santa Ana, California.

So he's done est, TM, Siddha Yoga, Landmark Education, Byron Katie "Work"...
One cult after another.
No wonder he feels like he can hack away at a person's soul. He's learned from some diabolical masters.
