A young man leaves college in the late '60s to explore and discover a new way of life. He gives an inside account of many of the "new age" spiritual groups, including his experiences with the study of yoga, Zen, communal country life, Tibetan Buddhism, and "American Tantra". This is a unique and valuable book, both personal and informative.
The effect of the yoga was immediate and wondrous: I was plunged into a vast inner space - as vast as oceans. Suddenly, there were whole new worlds to explore - worlds I had dreamed of when I was a kid, but had forgotten, ... worlds of magic ... worlds of the mind, created in an instant by the mind. This was a subtle yet severe crack in my shell of existentialism - beyond where new worlds ... beyond was a union with a higher force.
