I attended both his seminar and Reading. In both sessions, the rooms were almost full with quite a few students. He showed a few slides during his reading session. He told the audience that he has numerous near-death experience, which is also mentioned in his book, and his life insurance costs about $17,000 per month. Someone asked him if he will return to Iraq. He said that he has not made his decision yet.
