Get the lowdown on Kundalini rising

Just wanted to bring to your attention an interesting discussion about that mysterious thing called Kundalini.

What is Kundalini, really?  Is it possible that Kundalini, which many branches of yoga have been developed around, could actually be one of the least understood aspects of yoga?  Most definitely.  Many people want to awaken their Kundalini but do not know its purpose or dangers.  In fact many authorities on the subject have not had their own personal experiences.  Until now it has been a secret.

Aadil Palkhivala’s wife, Savitri, has been dealing with this yogic phenomenon of Kundalini rising for over 25 years and is a living Meditation and Kundalini master.  On Aadil’s March 7 radio show , www.alivewithaadil.com, Savitri talked about her Kundalini experience, its purpose and its intensity.  It is a powerful force that is the rocket fuel for evolution and should only be awakened when someone has access to tremendous wisdom.

To listen to the archived show from Monday, March 7, 2011, click here. On Monday, March 14, she will be continuing her talk on Kundalini and you can listen live  from 11 AM-12:00 PM PST  through their website, www.alivewithaadil.com

Savitri is co-director of The College of Purna Yoga™ and Yoga Centers™, in Bellevue, Washington, with her husband, Aadil.  She has taught meditation since 1993 throughout the world.  Her teachings come from her inner contact with great masters and her soul, who have guided her from serious illnesses, personal tragedies and death experiences to life, wholeness, and the Divine.  She has practiced meditation since 1986, often for 18 hours a day.  She is the author of Meditation Snacks and Meditation Meals, which focus on the Heart Chakra and are simple techniques applicable to day-to-day life.

How Yoga Can Help You Stop Feeling Like You’re Not Spiritual Enough and Love Your Life

I used to feel like a bad yoga teacher, like someone who wasn’t living up to the title. Because I like to wear stylish clothes, love when my Vogue and Vanity Fair magazines arrive in the mail, and the amount of pleasure I get from a good dark chocolate bar is almost indecent. So, I […]

Sacred Sound: Mantras & Chants
