Who is this course for?
Though many have undergone the various stages of rise and expansion of consciousness, there is still a vague understanding of the phenomenon. For some the process culminated in the crowning experience of Unity; for others, the journey continues. The insights offered in the format of this event are for the benefit of all regardless of their status or the chosen path.
What you’ll learn
This free online immersion is an invitation to re-examine our understanding of the awakening and how our physiology acts as a reflection of a greater reality. This ultimately leads to what could be termed as Greater Embodiment – a spontaneous flowing of Awareness awake to itself.

Q&A: Healing & Trauma. Kundalini Specifics
What factors are involved in enriching this connection with the field of grace that one could tacitly feel in your presence?

Is it possible that the family we live with, who are negative toward our spiritual practices, hinder our progress negatively? How does a Tantric practitioner approach desires? (01:32:14)
