Most are protected by their own incompetence, or their lack of psychic
ability, or both.  For the fanatic, though, the risks are very real.  No
responsible occultist would write such "how to" books.  If a genuine
seeker can figure it out for him/herself (which is possible) they will
probably be made aware of the risks at the same time.
