Having purchased and read The Psychic Energy Codex in the past couple weeks, I have to say that this is a surprisingly good book. It is light and easy read, without being condescending.
Considering who the author is, you’d expect this book to be rather vampire-specific. Ms. Belanger talks about her group a bit, but not nearly as much as the reviews on Amazon.com would lead you to believe. In any case, the exercises are appropriate for almost any beginning energy-worker, including psions. I say “almost” because I’m not familiar with all the religious traditions of energy work…for example, some of the off-shoots of Wicca.
I’d recommend it to someone who is just starting out and is the type of person who likes to be spoon-fed, because it walks you through the very basics in a step-by-step, non-nonsense manner. She even walks you through keeping a data-book or “journal.” That said, bear in mind that it covers only the very low-level basics: expect to move beyond the contents of this book in a matter of weeks.
Those of you who’ve been in this community or the Guild for any length of time will recognize most or all of the methods Ms. Belanger describes.
If you teach on a semi-regular basis, you might want to add this to your collection, to give you some ideas for your curriculum.
