The Modern View of Kundalini is a ground-breaking book about Kundalini and its relationship to psychological vitality and spiritual transformation. Through author Darrel Irving`s own experience, Joseph Campbell`s documentation of kundalini, and the case histories of Gopi Krishna and others, readers learn that kundalini is more than a spiritual concept, a religious illusion, or a New Age fantasy. Kundalini is real. 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 consciousness. Kundalini is a curative process if approached with knowledge and understanding, for kundalini is healing-it is the mechanism of evolution contained in the human body. The potential for the kundalini experience exists in every person on the planet. This book shatters myths and corrects common misinformation about kundalini and how it works. In these pages, living makes a provocative case for a strong connection between madness and the kundalini process gone awry. The author compares ancient allegorical representations to present-day view points on kundalini and presents a compelling argument for the serious investigation of the kundalini phenomenon. Serpent of Fire makes it abundantly clear that the experience of kundalini is not just a special dispensation granted by fate or destiny to a select, privileged group. Nor is it the preserve of a few gurus or self-appointed holy men. Kundalini is the birthright of everyone, and kundalini-activated individuals are the hope and promise of the new millennium.
