Beginning Kundalini

I find myself ready for some "spiritual" growth and have found the
subject of kundalini interesting, but have only explored it

I would like someone who is successfully into it to recommend some
introductory reading material to help me learn more about it.

Also, I would be interested in a seminar for beginners.

My wife is quite into organized religion but this does not mean she will
automatically reject everything else.  I don't think kundalini is
competition, but could use some insight here, also.

Thanks to anyone who can provide some insight/help.

I have known people who have deliberately tried to raise their kundalini for
years with no success. And of course others for whom the k was raised
without any effort on their part.

Common ways to do so include taking psychoactive substances, meditating,
yoga, and going to a guru for direct transmission (known as shaktipat.) But
there are no guarantees that the kundalini will take hold,no matter what you do.

Bookstores now have a fairly decent amount on the subject, espcecially if
you can find a spiritually  oriented one.   You  might try going in and
reading different books, each will give you different ideas and approaches
to try. See which one appeals to your underlying sensibilities.

Also some  people  like Rosalyd Bruyere talk about using the kundalini
energy for healing and it doens't necessarily require an awakening, just an
awareness. Again, a good bookstore is where I would start. Good luck,

Best, Patti

Also, any exercises presented here, either physical or mental, are to be practiced at your own risk. Consult your physician, therapist, guide, or guru before you begin, or should you experience any discomfort or trauma from any of the processes involved in the awakening of kundalini energy. Many people consider this energy force too powerful to work with on your own without the active assistance of a guide. Use your own best judgment. By all means, be extremely careful, and progress slowly and cautiously on your path to Kundalini Awakening. It is in your best interest to do so.
