An individual who uses non-western spiritual belief systems and new-age philosophy to spin a fantastic web of vague bullshit to absolve you from any responsibility towards other people. Naturally this makes you want to give them money.

An individual who claims to have achieved a higher state of being, to which they will grant you access for money, sex, or a place to crash.
