The Book of est
|The Book of est is a vivid recreation of the legendary four-day est training. This is the only book that takes you behind the sealed doors of est training rooms to share in the life-transforming experience. From the hysterical anxiety of the first morning to the elation of “getting it” on the fourth evening, The Book of est brings the training to life, moment by moment, to involve you in an electrifying experience. To read it is to participate in the rantings and hysterics, to witness the intimate confessions and heated exchanges between trainer and trainee, to live through the training data and processes that lead trainees to “get it.” It’s as close as you can come to the experience of the training without actually taking it.
