Making of a Man: Initiation Through the Divine Mother

In 1982 I was travelling in a suburban train between Boston and New York. I suddenly felt a stirring at the base of my spine and a trickle quickly turned into a rush of energy moving upward. Another will seemed to be working within me and I felt a mandate to shift my posture. Feeling awkward and embarrassed I assumed a lotus posture in the public carriage and waited for the next event. A flood of blissful fluid rushed up my spine emerging out of my heart. My journey with Kundalini had begun which would dominate and shape my life for the next twenty years.

Making of a Man is a personal disclosure. Dr. Woodcock tells for the first time those intensely intimate experiences with Kundalini (the divine mother) that both deconstructed his personality and transformed it. The content of the book may look like poetry but in fact is the residue of a poesis, a making. These word forms are virtually unedited since the time he wrote them down during a long period of ecstatic vision.

This book is thus the record of an intense sustained spiritual process during which Dr. Woodcock reached a region of reality where he experienced the love, power and wisdom of the creative word. What was spoken thus became so! A man was transformed and an aspect of spirit incarnated.

About the author (2012)

John C. Woodcock Ph. D. has devoted his life to the comprehension and communication of a sustained and intense encounter with Kundalini energies which stripped away everything familiar to him in the most concrete ways, over a period of twenty years or so. His ordeal took place in the USA, culminating in a long period of ecstatic vision. His Ph.D. (1999) became an early vehicle for his attempts to make a bridge between his inner experiences and the modern world. His web site contains his books, essays and poetry which are also published with iUniverse. He now lives with his wife Anita in Sydney, Australia where he continues to affirm and describe the soul connection between his own journey and current world events, through writing, consulting, and offering presentations. He is also a practising Jungian therapist.
