Kundalini and the Spiritual Fast Track with Melanie Harrell
2:00 to 4:00 pm
Kundalini . . . the mysterious energy coiled three and a half times at the base of your spine . . .
- Is it real? (yes)
- If it awakens, does it mean you are enlightened? (no)
- Is it safe to deliberately try to awaken it? (that depends)
- What is it awakens and you aren’t ready for it? (let's talk about that!)
Melanie Harrell experienced a premature Kundalini awakening in 1996 and spent 7 years recovering. Her confusion about the process led her to graduate school, where she explored Gopi Krishna's work on Kundalini. This discussion includes how to recognize a Kundalini awakening; how to help someone going through it (or yourself!), the four qualities of enlightenment and more.
