Many people have heard of the extraordinary phenomenon of kundalini awakening in which a persons body is swept by muscle spasms, indescribable sensations & sharp pains running throughout the body. He feels his body tearing within. Then suddenly he laughs & is overcome with bliss. When allowed to progress to completion, this process may culminate in deep psychological balance, inner strength, and emotional maturity.
Psychiatrist Lee Sanneli, cofounder of the Kundalini Clinic in San Francisco, differentiates this from a psychotic episode. Instead, it is a psychophysiological transformation, or 'rebirth' process as natural as physical birth.
