Overview

The universal force known as Kundalini has been shrouded in mystery for centuries, yet it influences our every breath, thought, and emotion. With Awakening Kundalini, one of the West's most respected teachers and researchers in the field explores this spiritual principle in unprecedented depth, with detailed guidance for discovering and working with it directly.

In India's spiritual teachings, Kundalini is known as the principle within that compels us to evolve and grow. Traditions across the globe have described it as a force that lies dormant within us and, when awakened, connects us to the energy of creation and profoundly elevates consciousness.

With his unique expertise in modern psychology, neuroscience, meditation training, and spiritual traditions, Lawrence Edwards clarifies the many dimensions of Kundalini awakening, including practices and meditations for recognizing its manifestations and preparing your body and mind to enter its expansive, empowering flow.

When worked with skillfully, Kundalini is the most profoundly transformative power in our lives. Awakening Kundalini makes available a complete and practical resource for tapping into this force, and realizing your ability to live "radically free."

I just wanted to thank you for the book "Awakening Kundalini".   Every time I pick it up to read it is as though a light has been turned on.! I always feel as if "I" am being lovingly, gently guided out of the densities and illusions of this world into a clear and indescribable "place".  Like being led out of a thick forest onto a clearing where the sun is shining brightly! But really it is more like the peeling away of layers to be fully me, the real and eternal me.   I have spent so many years trying to become something, nothing wrong with aspiring to a goal.   But no effort is really required to BE what one already IS.  No journey to go on, no mountains to climb, no quest to endure to arrive.... to arrive where one already and has always BEEN. There are no words to describe my gratitude.

Raised in an Evangelical Christian home and conforming at a very young age I felt out of place and disillusioned by the restraints and confinement of the Church I experienced. Although unconditionally loved by my family a deep sense of loss and disconnection from myself began a life of self destruction in pursuit of something that called me to a greater understanding and connection with myself and the universe. I began to identify with other Mystic paths outside of my family of origin and an intense stirring within the deepest part of my soul began to see the connection of all human beings and life itself. When I read Dr. Edwards book I experienced the unexplainable. Everything that I intuitively knew as a young child and into adulthood was validated. Call it what you will, but I call it the Absolute. I was able to return to my parents belief system without prejudice and the beliefs systems of the world and find the Wisdom each one holds. "Awakening Kundalini" was a life changer for me. It's a guidebook for life and has the power to "radically transform."
