What is Kundalini Syndrome?

Kundalini syndrome

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Kundalini syndrome is a set of sensorymotormental and affective symptoms associated with the concept of Kundalini. It has been reported predominantly by people who have had a near-death experience,[1] [2] [3] or by practitioners of asian spiritual practices.[4] [5] The term “Kundalini Syndrome” has been used as a category for discussion within the schools of transpersonal psychology and near-death studies. The phenomenon is sometimes called the “Kundalini-syndrome”,[6][7] the “Physio-Kundalini syndrome”,[8][9][10] or simply referred to as a “syndrome”.[11][12] Other researchers, while not using the term “syndrome” [13], have also begun to address this phenomenon as a clinical category,[14][15] or as a recognizable symptomatology.[16]

The appearance of the symptomatology is believed to occur in connection with a near-death experience, [17] [18] [19] or with prolonged, intensive spiritual or contemplative practice, as practiced within a few sub-disciplines of meditation or yoga. [20] [21] [22] [23] [24] Other factors that may trigger this symptomatology includes a variety of intense personal crises or experiences. [25] According to writers in the field of transpersonal psychology the process is not always sudden and dramatic, it can also start slowly and increase gradually in activity over time.[26] If the accompanying symptoms unfold in an intense manner that destabilizes the person, the process is usually interpreted as a spiritual emergency.[27]
