American Kundalini takes readers on a personal journey into a powerful human experience with Kundalini, a biological system for radical transformation. This unusual phenomenon has been known about for thousands of years, but it’s been shrouded primarily in monasteries, Eastern ashrams, and ancient writing. Very few Western books explore Kundalini in depth, especially as told from the life of a person who has actually lived the experience.

Author Aaron Anderson shares an up-close, authentic account of how Kundalini dramatically appeared and then upended his life. Over ten years, this “Universal Energy” completely transformed the physical, emotional, mental, sexual, and spiritual aspects of Aaron’s being. Narrated from a Western perspective, American Kundalini intends to help other modern laypeople deal with Kundalini. The book also aims to introduce the idea of Kundalini to the general public.
