Jalonné de descriptions détaillées sur les techniques de yoga avancées (et tenues jusqu'alors secrètes des non-initiés !), le récit nous introduit dans la réalité de la vie divine et de ses métamorphoses.
Si bien de ses aspects sont haletants et envoûtants (on croit souvent rêver, notamment lors de la scène sur-naturelle où nos deux héros sont en lévitation au-dessus de l'eau), ce livre des révélations ultimes se veut avant tout contagieux. Car tout l'effort de l'auteur est d'éveiller en nous lecteur la même soif de se transformer qui habite ses héros.
Revivifiant et à l'antipode de tout dogmatisme religieux, gorgé à la fois d'émotion, de pragmatisme spirituel et néanmoins d'ésotérisme aussi fascinant que déroutant, j'ai beaucoup apprécié ce livre.

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!
The beginning was the only reason I couldn't give "Secrets of Wilder" 5 out of 5 stars. I found the beginning a little rough going and not up to the high standards set later on as the story unfolds. I actually feel that if it had begun the way it ended, it would have been in the class of Richard Bach's Illusions or Jonathan Livingston Seagull for me which are two of my favorite spiritual stories of all time.
Overall, I highly recommend "secrets of Wilder" as a great and inspiring read that takes the reader into unchartered spiritual waters.
readable and digestible detail.
For those new to any sort of spiritual practice (and also as fun and pleasure for those who are already familiar), The Secrets of Wilder presents this deep and potent practice completely free of any Eastern terminology, and within an adventure/love story!!! Spoonfuls of sugar to help the medicine go down and attract a wider set to these practices, so more people can drop their stress, anger, and aggression.
Speaking of medicine and the need for sugar, Yogani is a mild-mannered man and polite, but when it comes to the business of smashing taboos which need to be smashed, and exposing secret knowledge which needs to be known, he becomes as decisive and unsparing as `The Terminator' --- he has pulled out all the stops in presenting the best, advanced yoga practices which are normally kept secret --- and he has spared nothing in showing the connection between sex and the sacred processes of enlightenment.
I give it five stars in its genre, and in many ways, it is in a genre of its own. Those uninterested in a spiritual message, or in enlightenment, would probably not give it five stars, but perhaps some would, because Yogani has a knack for making you turn the pages. Its closest genre is that of books such as Jonathan Livingstone Seagull, Celestine Prophesy, Siddhartha, and Way of the Peaceful Warrior; in a way similar to these books, Yogani has wrapped his spiritual message in a story which has the human appeal of mystery, love and adventure. In a very clever way, he uses the unfolding of the mystery of the enlightenment process as a motivation for turning the page. But he has done something though that the authors of these other novels have not done --- he has exposed the enlightenment process as it is, and taught ways to access it.
The book is set in the Christian tradition - but those who are wary of dogmaticism and orthodoxy have nothing at all to fear. In fact the novel may help to bridge a gap between the narrower forms of Christianity and the more expansive roots of the Christian religion. It may help bridge the gap in some people's minds between Christianity (whether it is their own religion or not) and Yoga and all other religions, and help people to understand what Buddha, Jesus and Krishna have in common.
With that said, I found the first few chapters of the book rougher than the rest and if you do too, bear with it. Some of the dialog and action seemed a little stiff or less than natural, but just in the first couple or so chapters. The writing improves as the book continues and you will be drawn into John Wilder's quest. I couldn't wait to come home after work and snuggle up on my sofa and read more.
There were three passages of the book that moved me to tears. I won't describe them here because some of you may not have read the book yet. I will say that the book strengthened my desire to be closer to God, just as it strengthened my desire to do my daily meditations and other practices. It provided an inspiring insight into the journey others on this path are taking.
Well done Yogani. Thank you for your writings and for building and sharing this open system. Thank you for compiling the knowledge you've gained into a form that so many others can understand. We understand how much work you've undertaken to accomplish this and we are grateful...
I also recommend Yogani's book, Advanced Yoga Practices: Easy Lessons For Ecstatic Living, for anyone who wishes to explore the open (freely given) practices referenced in The Secrets of Wilder.
Yogani really has generously given so much through his Advanced Yogic Practice work. This book really conveys many of the struggles and victories along the AYP way.
I cannot say enough about this book! Read on!
