This book should not be missed by anyone who is interested in their own spiritual evolution - or, for that matter, in the spiritual evolution of our planet. Framed within a cosmic love story that begins with the protagonists in high school, it encompasses a wide panorama of meditative teachings that can be applied easily both by young adults and by oldsters already set in their ways - such as me. Beautifully and sensitively written, I cannot imagine anyone coming away from its pages without having learned something profoundly new about themselves. When I finished reading the last page of the story, tears came to my eyes and a strong yearning overcame me. "So may it be," I said aloud. "So may it come to pass for all of us."
How often does a book appear without anyone knowing who the author is? We have no photo, no list of achievements on the back cover, and I don't think we are going to see Yogani on the morning talk shows. Despite the amazing success of the Advanced Yoga Practices online list that drew more than seven thousand subscribers and now has its own website and forums (and also now as the book "Advanced Yoga Practices"), Yogani protects his anonymity. We are told nothing about the originator of this extraordinary novel other than in the brief biographical note at the end: `Yogani is an American spiritual scientist who, for more than thirty years, has been integrating ancient spiritual techniques from around the world that cultivate human spiritual transformation. The approach he has developed is non-sectarian and open to all."
Again I repeat, "Don't miss this book." I am buying extra copies for my three sons and close friends. And if they find the exercises launch them into deeper levels of spirit, they - and you - can move on to the "Advanced Yoga Practices" book itself. Yogani promises us that more is forthcoming. I, for one, can't wait!
