    Suzie Housley, Midwest Book Review

    For centuries Kundalini has been a scared state in which its existence has been closely guarded. Its theory revolves around the ultimate form of energy source of the highest spiritual awakening.

    Through Kundalini Rising you will discover and in-depth look of the true meaning of Kundalini and how it has the power to change your life.

    This one is divided into four different sections. Part one is entitled The Experience; this is where you are able to read actual events of people who have experienced Kundalini and all its majestic wonders. Part two is Kundalini and your Health it is essays from medical practitioners who show how Kundalini provides health benefits. The third part is called Kundalini at Large it shows how Kundalini has evolved throughout history. The last section is Kundalini in Motion it discusses how Kundalini has been incorporated into meditation and yoga.

    In all there are twenty six essays that allow the reader to fully understand Kundalini and how it has the power to change one's life.

    Kundalini Rising: Exploring the Energy of Awakening provides a comprehensive look at a spiritual energy that has existed for centuries. I felt that I gained not only knowledge for a deeper appreciation for all the greatness Kundalini has to offer once I finished this book. Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa is a highly talented author who has brought to light one of life's greatest mysteries.
