How can I teach my horse to lunge?

I really would like to start lunging my gelding, because I think it would be good exercise when I don't have time to ride, and because he has some energy-related behaviour problems, especially at shows and places that are nerve-wracking for him. I also plan to jump him and I've read that lunging over jumps first is the best way to go.
Anyway, how do I teach him to lunge? I'm not that great of a horsewoman, so the simplest way would be best for us ;)

Every horse is an angel... They just don't need wings to soar!

Check into Clinton Anderson. he will tell you EVERYTHING that you need to know! I love him!

Strength lies within the heart but the strength to trust lies between the horse and his rider.
