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.

Later on in the book he gets more academic and tries to describe how Kundalini and his Christian spiritually does or does not match up. Much of this I find unimportant to me. Like arguing whether Kundalini energy is same as the Holy Spirit or not. I guess my response is who cares. He also slips into some of that Christian baggage about sin. It could be only that I often associate sin with inherent human flaw, which I can't get on board with. As I understand it sin really means "to miss the mark". I think his concern is that once someone experiences the power of the Kundalini energy they may become an ego-maniac. If you can see past or reinterpret some of the Christian terminology it is a helpful book!
Philip St Romain's humility throughout the book gives it greater credibility and lets the reader vicariously enjoy the experience. This is one of the most helpful Kundalini books I have ever read. I would recommend it to anyone undergoing a Kundalini awakening, and anyone interested in this evolutionary energy that is often misdiagnosed and misunderstood.
