Emma Bragdon, Ph.D.
Current Triggers of Kundalini Awakening
Integration is the subject of this warm and clear presentation by therapist Bragdon:
how to incorporate transpersonal experience into a balanced and productive life.
The challenge can be overwhelming; experiences of awakening may disrupt
our normal functioning in the world, especially if a foundation or "container"
of personal and social stability is lacking.
Using Wilber's prepersonal-egoic-transpersonal developmental spectrum
and Mindell's process-oriented psychotherapy, Bragdon develops a model
of spiritual evolution that recognizes the need for both order and transcendence.
Illustrated with intriguing case histories, this talk offers helpful assistance on the
difficult journey toward a more conscious way of being that is both balanced and awake.

Bonnie Greenwell, Ph.D.
Energies Of Transformation : A guide to the Kundalini Process
Assessing and Integrating Kundalini Process: A Clinical Perspective
In this "pragmatic workshop", therapist Greenwell, author of
Energies of Transformation: A Guide to the Kundalini Process, offers suggestions
on how to identify the kundalini awakening experience and help people
through its processes. Although no two experiences are alike, Greenwell describes
seven characteristics frequently present and suggests ways of assisting in the
often chaotic and lengthy process of moving through the awakening.
A clear and informative discussion.

Kundalini: Chaos or Completion?
Therapist Greenwell offers an in-depth look at the kundalini experience,
noted by the ancients yet still little-understood today. Utilizing research for her book
The Energies of Transformation, as well as personal experience, Greenwell describes
some of the most common characteristics of kundalini awakening and offers
basic guidelines for assisting the process in oneself and others.
Spirituality is intimately connected to bodily energies, says Greenwell,
and in the proper context these energies can lead to a lifetime of personal development.

Christina Grof
The Stormy Search for the Self
A good overview of the phenomenon of spiritual emergence: What is it?
What sort of events typically trigger it? How is it different from mental illness?
What are the best strategies for working with it? Christina Grof shares her
difficult experience and describes other case histories to illustrate stages in the process
of emergence to a higher level of awareness. The often disturbing symptoms of spiritual
emergence are really a pathway to greater wholeness and authentic existence. This new understanding welcomes emergence as guide and teacher and recognizes it as a common experience, to be worked with as a path to greater freedom and well-being
when its emergent energies are allowed to lead the transformation.

Bonnie Lee Hood, Ph.D.
Perils of the Path
Hood tells the story of her own cataclysmic spiritual awakening and presents a model
of the death and rebirth in spiritual emergency. It can be terrifying when all familiar levels
of experience are broken through but if the process is allowed to unfold it can be
healing and transforming - moving the person to higher levels of
awareness and integration. Hood's careful study of spiritual emergency
discusses precipitating causes, stages of the process and the recovery that can occur
with complete surrender.

Types of Spiritual Emergency
Prevatt, former director of the Spiritual Emergence Network, presents her typology
of ten categories of spiritual emergence. From kundalini awakening and
shamanic crisis to near-death experiences and encounters with UFO's Prevatt outlines
a vast and mysterious field of profoundly transformative non-ordinary experiences.
Prevatt shares her own dramatic experiences and encourages openness in the presence
of these unfamiliar visitations for they come, she says, to heal and teach and awaken.
With courage and trust in Mother Shakti these remarkable journeys can be
an extraordinarily valuable adventure.

Making a Place in the DSM-IV for Spiritual Emergency
Transpersonal psychology meets mainstream psychiatry in this story of the attempt
to win recognition for spiritual experience in the paradigm-defining diagnostic manual
the DSM, soon to undergo a major revision. The four presenters on this panel examine
different aspects of the controversy: the issues around DSM categorization, the status
of research on psychospiritual anomalies, criteria for distinguishing spiritual emergence
from mental illness, etc. Of interest to clinicians and others seeking more appropriate
diagnostic categories.

Claudio Naranjo, M.D.
The Kundalini Process and the Hero's Journey
The kundalini phenomenon is really inseparable from the process of
human development says psychiatrist Naranjo and he illustrates his view through
archetype and myth, the deep levels where transformation takes place. Tales such as
the Iliad and the Odyssey, the legends of Osiris and the plumed serpent Quetzalcoatl
speak of voyage and return, descent to the depths and return with treasure.
Contact with this deep energy sets the stage for a new body and consciousness,
bringing darkness into light, freeing the dragon of our being.
A wide-ranging presentation blending myth with biology for a new understanding
of the meaning of emergence.

"Kundalini and the Evolution of Consciousness is both guide and friend on this journey and well beyond. A wealth of information and insights are shared in practical, down-to-earth language, as well as a remarkable view into advanced states of consciousness far exceeding the threshold of enlightenment. The author has provided a western paradigm for the process of spiritual growth, bringing new understanding to the teachings of Christ and the path to experiencing the Kingdom of Heaven while on earth."

Box 612, York Beach, ME 03910-0612.
back cover condensed: "...Kundalini and its relationship to psychological vitality and
spiritual transformation...readers learn that kundalini is more than a spiritual concept,
a religious illusion, or a New Age fantasy. It is a subtle energy at the base of the spine
that when unleashed becomes a powerful force leading to altered and higher states of is a curative process if approached with knowledge and is the mechanism of evolution contained in the human body...
In these pages Irving makes a provocative case for a strong connection between
madness and the kundalini process gone awry...Kundalini is the birthright of everyone,
and kundalini-activated individuals are the hope and promise of the new millennium."

Max Schupbach, Ph.D.
Cataclysmic Energy Behind Bodily Symptoms
A warm and witty presentation by Swiss psychologist Schupbach. Working in the process-oriented therapy of Arnold Mindell, Schupbach stresses the wisdom of
bodily symptoms. Unpredictable as they may be, symptoms are really a developmental
process seeking expression. We should trust the symptoms and in their own way they
will lead us to heightened states of being. Surrendering to the symptoms is the path
to expanded identity, beyond the limits of the rational mind. Schupbach's portrait
of this intelligent universal energy seeking expression is fascinating and compelling.

Energetic Transmutations in the Kundalini Process
In this thoughtful presentation Sovatsky, director of the Kundalini Clinic, offers
a tantric yoga for our time. Going deeply into emotion permits reunion with the ground
of our existence. Feeling is really the power of reality emerging through us,
whether in joy or pain. Faithfully opening to our experience, it becomes universal energy, deepening our being with its radiant truth. Sovatsky discusses yogic techniques
of chant and breathing, and powerfully demonstrates what a kundalini emergence is like.

Unmasking the Rose: A Record of a Kundalini Initiation
Hampton Roads Publishing Co., Inc. : ISBN 1-57174-301-4 : 2002
This is the personal account of one woman's unexpected kundalini awakening, which occurred without warning in the early 1980's. A teacher then living in Kansas, she had no prior experience of the inner energies, and no one to guide her in her prolonged, sometimes ecstatic, sometimes painful experience. Thus, without human instructor or external authority, she followed the lead of the inner guru, the internal wisdom which assures us of our unbreakable connection to the divine. Her ultimate conclusion is that kundalini is the transformative energy which has the potential to redeem and transfigure humanity itself.
