Chakras and Kundalini Awakening:
A Theoretical and Practical Approach

An extensive 5 Day residential workshop
Organized by Vedanta Spiritual & Holistic Retreat in association
with Kaivalyadhama

by Dr. N. Ganesh Rao
19th to 23rd October 2023
Location: Vedanta Spiritual & Holistic Retreat, California (USA)

Chakras and Kundalini: The Workshop will deal with the fascinating subject of the Chakras and Kundalini and their awakening. These concepts are esoteric and invoke awe. Due to a non-comprehension, many push these powerful realities away thinking, “this is not meant for us”. But they are neither pure hypothesis nor hypnosis, nor myth, nor illusion, nor fantasy, nor figment of imagination, nor irrational, nor illogical,… they are neither philosophical nor ideological nor psychological nor transcendental concepts. They are in actuality, more experiential and less intellectual! The concepts – Chakras, Kundalini, Nadis, Prana – belong to the subtle body (Sukshma Sharira) and hence, are not obvious to our every day ordinary perception.

Kundalini is the cosmic dynamic potential force in the material body of the human being, a power of infinite magnitude in the physical framework of the human body. In a way it represents the immeasurable potential present in every human being. This workshop will demystify these subtle systems offering the participant a chance to understand the concepts and experience them through self-study.
