FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) — Self-help guru James Arthur Ray, who faces manslaughter charges, is taking his motivational messages to the Internet.

In a video posted online, Ray says he's unable to produce live events but still has a deep desire and passion to provide value and help people in any way he can.

Ray invites people to join him online at least once a week so that he can share tools and techniques, and insight and knowledge to deal with life's challenges.

Ray's attorneys have said his Carlsbad, Calif.-based company, James Ray International, hasn't been bringing in revenue for months.

Ray has pleaded not guilty to three counts of manslaughter, stemming from the deaths of three people following a sweat lodge ceremony he led last October near Sedona.
