In the spirit of “There’s a sucker born every minute,” Bentinho is following in the footsteps of earlier ‘charismatic’ fake-gurus who have sullied the high desert of Sedona, Arizona.

Concerning Bentinho Massaro and his cult following… oh lordy… just what Sedona needs (again)… another narcissistic, money-grubbing, poly-amorous, (aren’t they all?) fake guru ready and willing to step up and fill Sedona’s ‘bad-guru’ cult void and diligently fleece and spiritually scar a new crop of hungry seekers.
