I have been consulting with people in a kundalini or spiritual awakening process since 1990, after publishing Energies of Transformation: A Guide to the Kundalini Process based on my doctoral research at the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology. Since then I have published 3 more books on spiritual awakening, based on my own experience and those of several thousand others who have called me over the years. I was a licensed LMFT in California from 1980 to 2005 and currently am licensed in Oregon. I have a background that includes studies and training in Jungian psychology, Process therapy, Psychosynthesis, Grof breathwork, Radiance breathwork, Ashtanga and Kundalini yoga, and Jin Shin Do Acupressure. I was a founder of the Kundalini Research Network and director of the Transpersonal Counseling Center at ITP. I am also a non-dual teacher in the lineage of Adyashanti and offer webinars for those in an awakening process. Currently I ask experiencers to fill out a questionnaire and then schedule initial assessments and guidance through zoom.us meetings, and my usual fee is $100. Follow-up consultations may also be arranged, and those who do my webinars can connect with each other through a private Facebook page. The best way to know my perspective is to look at my websites (listed above) or my books – The Kundalini Guide, The Awakening Guide, and When Spirit Leaps: Navigating the Process of Spiritual Awakening – all on amazon and kindle. There are also several interviews available with me on you-tube, including two with BATGAP. I believe kundalini is the life force intensifying to bring about energetic changes in our body that supports a profound realization of our true nature, and by clearing old patterns and traumas from our system kundalini makes it possible to live with an awakened consciousness.
