The Psychology of Kundalini Yoga

In 1932 Carl Jung presented four seminars on the Kundalini Yoga to the Psychological Club in Zurich.  This seminar was in response to six lectures given by Wilhelm Hauer.  I just started reading Jung's response in a book edited by Sonuy Shamdasani, The Psychology of Kundalini Yoga.

So far, this book is an interesting read about the intersect of Kundalini Yoga and Psychology--two of my passions.  In true Jungian form, the text can be dense and difficult (see Diary of a Mad Man? Carl Jung's Red Book Finally Published) to understand.  But I'm definitely enjoying the book and it inspires me for my journey this coming week: I will be participating in a  Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training Level 1 at Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health.  Personally, I have practiced Kundalini Yoga for almost two years and look forward to immersing myself into the teacher training. Stay tuned as I blog live from Kripalu about the psychology of Kundalini Yoga and my personal experiences starting Saturday.
