Advanced Meditation Techniques in Everyone's Reach with New Books and Website
Jacksonville, FL -- July 1, 2005 -- What can a new offbeat novel called The
Secrets of Wilder do for you? Maybe a lot if you resonate with its solid
grounding in actual secret spiritual practices.
About two years ago, a Florida man anonymously took the name Yogani and
started putting lessons on the Internet intimately describing advanced deep meditation,
spinal breathing and tantric sexual techniques. He did not expect that he would end up
with thousands of readers worldwide and two books published. But that is what happened,
and now Yogani has emerged as one of the leading exponents of public teaching of formerly
secret ancient spiritual practices which cultivate lasting inner peace, happiness and an
unmistakable ecstatic radiance.
Such breaks with tradition are typically American, and Yogani is definitely that. Born in
New York, he grew up Christian in the 1950s and 60s, securing an education in science
followed by career, marriage and children. All the while he was steadily expanding from
his Christian roots, systematically integrating esoteric methods from the Far East into
his daily spiritual practice routine. Over thirty years later and retired, he decided to
write it all down so there would be a record of his research left behind for other seekers
of truth. The Internet writing has evolved to become a vast non-sectarian website with
hundreds of introductory lessons on spiritual techniques, as well as numerous other resources for
avid seekers. Along with its huge following has come a mountain of reader testimonials.

Just published, The Secrets of Wilder is Yogani's second
book. It is a fast-paced tale that begins with a young athlete's commitment to
spiritual transformation made on a wind-swept Florida beach. After a
hair-raising journey of change lasting some ten years, John Wilder and his devoted
beautiful love-mate, Devi Duran, end up bringing a generous dose of enlightenment to the
world. But at what cost? It is a story of unwavering personal resolve, the discovery of
powerful spiritual practices and their far-reaching effects, simmering romance, adventure,
humor, miracles and ultimate sacrifices. Interestingly, The Secrets of Wilder
takes place in the setting of mainstream American Christian culture, expanding the view of
what a journey to enlightenment can be from a Christian perspective.
The first book, published last December, is called Advanced Yoga Practices
Easy Lessons for Ecstatic Living. It is a large, user-friendly
textbook on spiritual practices that goes well beyond the website lessons. It is a blend
of East and West, with a down home writing style, all woven together into an open system
of daily practices that is as pragmatic as it is profound in its results. Readers are
calling it one of the clearest and most comprehensive books ever written on spiritual
techniques. From the standpoint of practices, it serves as an optional in-depth reference
book for those who read The Secrets of Wilder.
Yogani has several more books in preparation and will continue
adding to the free Internet lessons as long as his typing fingers are able. He treasures
the relative peace and quiet of anonymity, and adamantly rejects the guru
label. In fact, every lesson he puts on the Internet ends with, The guru is in
