Steve Cozzi’s book offers a rare look into the life of Shelly Trimmer, a Western Yogi, and direct disciple of Paramahansa Yogananda. Surprisingly, very little has been written about practioners of Yoga who were born and raised in the West. This book offers many proofs that the appeal and application of Yoga is universal.
Steve Cozzi reveals to the reader a story and a teaching that is highly personal and authorative. These writings are not based on fictional accounts but on actual tape recordings and real time notes. The book is a journey into the incredible, a mystical reality, and the supernatural world of a modern Yogi Scientist. These first hand accounts let the reader make intelligible the higher knowledge of meditative awareness.
Shelly’s explanations of Kriya Yoga in particular and mysticism in general are unique in their scope and implications. He was a man of many interests and talents, namely, scientist/researcher, healer, magician, military strategist, and futurist.
Conveyed in direct, yet clear everyday language this book tackles vast concepts as-well-as simple truths. Its pages are filled with personal stories, humorous insights and mysterious experiences. All who read this would gain in their understanding of Kriya Yoga, mysticism and their own Self Conscious Awareness.
