Jeannet Weurman "Jung and Kundalini: Reaching for the Core of the Mountain"
Jung saw the kundalini process as a universal phenomenon driven by the Self - a parallel in Eastern psychology to individuation in Westerners. I will tentatively ask if we might be able to speak of a ‘kundalini complex’ as a bridge on the interface between narratives describing core human experience

Jung and Kundalini: Reaching for the Core of the Mountain
Art work: Ted Wallace - http://tedwallaceart.com
Jung saw the kundalini process as a universal phenomenon driven by the Self - a parallel in Eastern psychology to individuation in Westerners. I will tentatively ask whether we might be able to speak of a ‘kundalini complex’ (as distinct from the energy itself) as a bridge on the interface between narratives attempting to describe core human experience. Might kundalini as it activates our complexes be a non-conceptual, embodied dimension of individuation? Finally - do we need to be careful as we enter powerful non-ordinary states of consciousness through meditation, breathwork, use of psychedelics, or by other means?
