The Story of Kundalini Webinar Series

Each live interactive video session will be hosted on the 3rd Sunday of every month at 6pm-8pm (PST). Topics will be posted here about a month in advance.

Series Overview - 

For the last decade, I have diligently researched hundreds of un-published Tantric texts which span 1,400 years of un-chartered Yoga history for the roots and evolution of Kundalinī and the Chakras in Tantric Yoga.   I have found that 'Kundalini Shakti' was not originally a 'dormant serpent power' located at the base of the spine, but a liberating, sonic power engaged throughout the subtle body in a liberating daily practice since lost to us. 

The topic of each exciting monthly webinar will be drawn from my current writings on Kundalini, the subtle body, and the forgotten practices of the original Kundalini-based yoga of the Tantrics. Students will receive a PDF of my exclusive Sanskrit translations, which inform each session.  January session -

Session Description -

The West was first introduced to Kundalinī and the Chakras through the 1918 publication of ‘The Serpent Power,’ by Arthur Avalon (a.k.a. John Woodroofe). The Chakra system as we know it today still derives from Avalon’s problematic translation of the “System of Six Chakras (Shat-Chakra-Nirūpana),” the sixth chapter of the “Jewel-Essence of Perfect Awareness,” a beautiful Tantric work composed in 1577 by Shrī Pūrnānanda (‘One who is Full of Bliss’).

In this birth motif taught by Pūrnānanda (and many other Tantrics), Shiva, who symbolizes our 'awakened consciousness,' is born through his own power in the body of a yogi at the peak moment of Yoga practice.

In this birth motif taught by Pūrnānanda (and many other Tantrics), Shiva, who symbolizes our 'awakened consciousness,' is born through his own power in the body of a yogi at the peak moment of Yoga practice.  

For the past 100 years, the Kuṇḍalinī-based Yoga practice applied to the chakra system we know--taught elsewhere in Pūrnānanda’s great work--has remained a mystery.

Topics for this exciting webinar—

A. The Truth about Kundalinī and Mūlādhāra Chakra.
I will provide concrete evidence that Avalon’s depiction of a dormant Kundalinī, wrapped around a ‘lingam’ at the base of the spine in the mūlādhāra chakra (image left), is a mis-translation of Pūrnanānda’s original teachings, which featured a dynamic Kundalinī force which ‘births’ Shiva consciousness in the body of the yogi (image right).

B. The Relationship between Upper and Lower Mūlādhāra Chakras.

Drawing from Pūrnānanda’s original teachings of not one but two mūlādhāras, located at either end of the central channel (suṣhumnā nāḍī).  Hear the words of a Tantric master, as Pūrnānanda reveals the importance of an upper mūlādhāra chakra at the crown of the head, centered at the point that the Shakti (Kundalinī) first coils down into the body as our very life force, as depicted in the image below. (Avalon certainly missed this!)

Experience the original insight teachings of Pūrānanda, a true Tantric master, as he reveals the liberating power of Kundalini when engaged in the original practice of Tantric Yoga.
