I never had much success with meditation until I chanced upon the system of energized meditation. The very first session broke up areas of body tension and granted me a peaceful "at-one-ness" with the world around me. I would recommend it to anyone who needs a break from reality. Only a small section of the book contains actual meditation techniques; the bulk of the material alternates between reassuring and infuriating passages and includes child-like illustrations in an effort to get you outside of you so you can become who you want to be. None of the material is particularly original, having roots in Zen, Reich's orgone theory, Western magical traditions, chakras, et cetera, but it is all synthesized in such a way to make it an invaluable tool for the contemporary "seeker."
