As you are aware if you’ve spent any time here at the Whitehawk blog, Kundalini has been a prevailing theme in my life, beginning with a minor K awakening in the late 80s/early 90s, and a far more extreme activation about a decade later that flowed on dramatically (life alteringly!) for about seven years.
During this second round, a threshold seemed to be transcended upon meeting someone with whom I experienced a particular, profound resonance – unlike anything I had known prior – which set me off on a seriously wild & intoxicating ride. Kundalini changes virtually everything in/about one’s human experience.
A Hindu term, darshan, addresses this spontaneous ignition of Kundalini via transmission through contact with another person, or sometimes even through adoring a statue of a deity that’s been worshiped for so long that it, too, can actually emanate enough energy to transmit darshan to believers.
I’ve noticed a renewed wave of interest in Kundalini, and also in Penny Kelly, whose first book (of the many she’s written), Evolving Human, was big for me on the subject. (I had first encountered the term Kundalini in The Stormy Search for the Self, by Christina Grof, during my first dance with K.)
One thing I appreciate about Penny is her languaging. She writes well and describes her experiences in “plain English” as opposed to others (i.e. the “grandfather of Kundalini for the modern age,” Gopi Krishna) whose concepts can be harder to follow due to the Indian cultural & spiritual orientation.
Penny just posted this YouTube – apparently the first of a series – on Kundalini:
Another relatively new YouTube channel – Jean-Claude at Beyond Mystic – has been offering content I often appreciate and imagine you would too, if you haven’t been tracking him already. He’s personable – and spiritually advanced in his own right – and interviews others who might be considered above the din of typical “new age” youtube fare. J-C has a particular interest in Kundalini and has interviewed Penny Kelly on the topic. I’ve been intending to post this interview for months!
They went on to do a second video together as well:
Jean-Claude also interviewed Kerry Cassidy re: her Kundalini experience, which I’ve heard her allude to numerous times, but never in any detail. J-C picked up this thread with her in a video you can find if you search his channel’s content. (Three videos in one post is my max!)
So – a big endorsement for J-C at Beyond Mystic. He’s also started a Patreon platform for more “risque” content like tantric sex, which tends to become a logical flow for people with awakened Kundalini: a sublime merge with the Divine in sexual union. The way sex was meant to be experienced, in my view! The polar opposite of the demoralizing depravity pushed in the porn industry, which is tragically so readily available to impressionable young souls on the internet.
More soon… love, Whitehawk
