Who is Yogani?

Reports claim he is "the first spiritual eGuru." I don't know any of his history (few do, apparently). But he's laid out all of his knowledge on a Web site. It's extensive, erudite, and accords with what I know about the practices discussed. The chapters about Kundalini and sex are exactly what you'd expect from a successful Western practitioner: honest, fearless, and useful.

He seems to know little of the Integral movement, but his words are perfectly in agreement with it:
That is why you will be hearing the phrase "integrated practice" a lot here. It is not a new idea. The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali lay out an eight-limbed path of practice. Most traditions lean toward one limb or another. It is natural enough. How many balls can anyone keep in the air? But if you want to really make progress in this life, you must multi-channel your efforts in the direction you want to go. It is like that in all things. Spiritual practice is no different.
While he sells this info in books, the meat of all of the lessons are available on his Web site. For free. Isn't that the way it ought to be?
