Dr Yvonne Kason Phenomenology and Impact of Kundalini Awakenings

Dr Yvonne Kason – Phenomenology and Impact of Kundalini Awakenings


There is comparatively little research examining the phenomenology and energetic effects of Spiritually Transformative Experiences with an energetic component, often referred to as Kundalini Awakenings. This limits our ability to understand and support individuals who have these often unexpected and powerful experiences.  The Kundalini Research Network (KRN) conducted a study using an interview questionnaire to explore the nature of these experiences and their subsequent behavioural and physiological transformative effects.  

This presentation will review key findings of this KRN study, including subjective feelings reported during a Kundalini Awakening, frequent triggers for the awakening, physical, psychological, and spiritually transformational changes reported after the Kundalini Awakening and other Spiritually Transformative Experiences (STEs) occurring later on. The full results were published in 2021: Marjorie Woollacott, Yvonne Kason, Russell Park. Investigation of the phenomenology, physiology and impact of spiritually transformative experiences – kundalini awakening.  Explore, Volume 17, Issue 6, November–December 2021, pp. 525-534
