Synopsis: From the Foreword: "This book is the first description that I know of in Christian literature about the awakening of kundalini energy in a purely Christian context. Kundalini has long been known in Taoist, Hindu, and Buddhist spirituality. The fact that this complete awakening occurred in the context of a classical development of Christian prayer makes it an important contribution to East/West dialogue. Given the newness of the kundalini experience in Christian circles, however, any theological interpretation is bound to be tentative. Reading the Christian mystics from the perspective of his own experience of kundalini energy, the author sees many examples of its working in the lives of Christian saints and mystics. Since this energy is also at work today in numerous persons who are devoting themselves to contemplative prayer, this book Is an important contribution to the renewal of the Christian contemplative tradition. It will be a great consolation to those who have experienced physical symptoms arising from the awakening of kundalini in the course of their spiritual journey, even if they have not experienced it to the full extent described by the author. His compelling testimony is a powerful affirmation of the potential of every human being for higher states of consciousness...."
From Library Journal:
St. Romain here attempts the difficult task of relating his so-called spiritual awakening. He describes the day-to-day journey with exacting physical detail, which he claims represents the awakening of Kundalini Energy, a powerful form of psycho-spiritual energy located at the base of the spine. In essence, his exercise seems to be a response to the physical manifestations of an impending midlife crisis, or quite possibly a nervous breakdown. His prose is self-indulgent (e.g., "Sense of going into an abyss, or black hole, sensations of electrical energy rippling through the reproductive organs, emotional release through weeping and deep sighs"). The book's chief problem may lie in the fact that St. Romain attempts to describe a spiritual experience using Western physiological terms. Also, his attempt to relate the experience to Christianity seems like a neat afterthought or an attempt to package the book for an American audience. Not recommended.
