Kundalini Yoga and meditation is a practice that balances the glandular system, strengthens the nervous system and enables us to harness the energy of the mind and emotions so as to still the commotion of our thoughts and feelings. * * * A kriya is a series of exercises or postures (asanas) combined with breath (pranayama), hand and finger gestures (mudra), eye-focus, chanting (mantra), and body locks (bhandas) in a precise, conscious manner that affects the body, mind and soul. The total impact is greater than the sum of the parts. * * * Kundalini means awareness. Awareness is the active interaction of you as a finite individual identy with you as an infinite potential identity. Kundalini Yoga is the supreme technology to awaken that awareness and take you into your original Self. The technology of Kundalini Yoga is an ancient science of the mind and body, to elevate the spirit, which has no boundaries, no discrimination. Therefore it is for everyone, universal and nondenominational.
"The primary objective [of Kundalini] is to awaken the full potential of human awareness in each individual; that is, recognize our awareness, refine that awareness, and expand that awareness to our unlimited Self. Clear any inner duality, create the power to deeply listen, cultivate inner stillness, and prosper and deliver excellence in all that we do." -Kundalini Research Institute
The Lunar Woman
The moon at high tide is strong. The moon at low tide is weak. As the Moon waxes from New to Full, the increased light is appropriate for initiating new projects and ideas for growth. The waning Moon, moving from Full to the next New Moon is a time of spontaneous and instinctual action appropriate for conscious clarification of values. The 29.5 day moon cycle is called the synodic period.

A daily sadhana** in the morning is totally a selfish
act – for personal strength, for personal intuition, for personal sharpness,
for personal discipline, and overall for personal absolute prosperity. Just try it for 40 days and your life will change! Perhaps you'll be living in the flow of Spirit instead of banging on the rocks in the rapids!
** Sadhana is your daily spriritual practice, preferably in the amrit hours before the sun rises.
