Description

This book is brazenly personal. I have taken the marvelous technology of Kundal ini Yoga as taught by my spiritual teacher, Yogi Bhajan, the Master of Kundalini Yoga, and presented it in my own conversational style. This is the way I have been teaching students in Kundalini Yoga Beginners classes for twenty-seven years: straight, simple, and with a smi le! This is not a manual or a textbook but it does have specific "things" you can do: breathi ng, stretching, chanting, meditating. I've also included some psychological, phi losophical, and I hope, inspirational com mentary, plus many excerpts from Yogi Bhajan's lectures. There are some personal anecdotes and a sprinkling of my own poetry. Each topic cou ld be a whole book in itself. Believe it or not, I've tried to be brief, but it's difficult to be brief and thorough at the same time. You'll find new ideas, new ways of looking at yourself and the people in your life, plus some yogic tidbits that you can apply to everyday activities. I want this book to whet your appetite to experience more of the vast technology of Kundalini Yoga. I know it can transform your life from the inside out and the outside in. I know, because I tried it. You won't know u ntil you try it. You wi ll find most quotes in this book are Yogi Bhajan's words.
