Although you may have heard about Kundalini in yogic texts or even other books on spirituality it still remains shrouded in mystery, not understood and often feared like any other powerful unknown phenomena. Many books address the topic of awakening the Kundalini and steps to follow, but this book addresses the basic question - What is Kundalini? Do we really need to awaken it? And how would I benefit?

As we go through life, we often wonder - Is there something better out there that can lift us above our mundane everyday existence? Some of us have heard about the "kundalini" experiences of other people that led them more fulfilled lives, but we remain skeptical about these methods and our ability to achieve this state of awakening. This book makes Kundalini very accessible and if like me you're the type who likes to know what they might be stepping into - even if you're told you will experience pure ecstasy - this is a great book to explore.

The book has 24 essays about the various aspects of the Kundalini experience and is divided into 4 broader sections -
Part 1: The Experience - Personal experiences of people who have experienced Kundalini. It has powerful and moving stories about this energy awakening which can occur spontaneously for some people. These personal experiences draw you into the book and leave you wanting to learn more about this awakening that has brought peace and happiness for those who have experienced it. The contributors to this section are authors/PhDs and make their experiences much more accessible to us.

Part 2: Kundalini and Your Health: This section has account from Doctors and other PhDs who give us more understanding of what is Kundalini energy and what are the benefits of awakening it.

This is a highly readable book. Some books on yoga and meditation use so many Eastern terms I can't keep up with what they are talking about, even though I've meditated myself for 20 years or so now.

When it does use terminology, it explains it well, although I felt like it could have benefited from a few graphics, for instance when talking about energy pathways and the chakras. I think most readers would be aware of these things, but that would be helpful especially when the Eastern terms are used.

I appreciated the section on Kundalini pathology, but was sad that it did not delve deeply into Kundalini rashes. In fact, the pathologies discussed were so severe that it almost made me think "OMG, why meditate if it can cause such as THIS?" I felt the book was very cautionary that opening this much energy can be dangerous. Take it from me, it can be! There are excellent, excellent sections on psychological manifestations and disturbances that can come with it.

I was surprised that it only touched upon the rashes. There's maybe 3 sentences in there, with no real tips for resolving this problem.

There's a great meditation discussed in the book - quite effective. (The ball of light from the lotus one.) I would have liked a few MORE examples of good guided meditations, and some information on effective grounding when one has excess of energy.
I also liked that the book gives caution to the seeker who focuses on the psychic manifestations. They really can be a stumbling block, in my experience.

It is WELL worth the read. I'd just have liked it better if it had covered these things better and given me a few visuals, even just black and white plates of energy pathways would have been nice.

As a person who has suffered "Kundalini" awakening over a period of 12 years now, I found this book to be disappointing and to contain typical mis-understandings and mis-interpretations of the process of awakening. These mis-interpretations are due to people's attachment to a particular religion or spiritual tradition through which they filter their perception. Ken Wilber is especially guilty of this. Nearly all of Ken's writings are filtered through and distorted by his belief and commitment to Buddhism. Ken's section on the chakras in this book is incorrect and is based in ignorance and will lead many astray. It is obvious that Ken Wilber and most of the other contributors to this volume have not experienced kundalini first hand and are simply regurgitating second hand beliefs. After all, there is big $$ to be made in writing pop "spiritual" books. Wilber is always quoting someone else like Freud and rarely speaks from direct experience and perception. Wilber claims that the chakras are not real...that they are only real to one with the "separate self sense." This is completely false. I know first hand that the chakras are real. They are clearly visible to clairvoyant vision. Also, a person authentically experiencing the awakening process experiences the chakras directly. The knots and grandthis are not equivalent to the Chakras. Wilber disappoints for a guy with such a seemingly high IQ. It seems that Wilber is himself deluded by samsara and maya and is coming from his ego only. The so called "separate self sense" is not some anomaly of existence and our lives are not a mistake. To read Wilber's second hand Buddhist beliefs, this world is "samsara" or an illusion. This false belief leads many astray. For this life is very real and is meant to be.Read more ›
