Marjorie Woollacott, PhD, is emeritus professor of Neuroscience and Human Physiology at the University of Oregon. She is coauthor of the textbook, Motor Control: Translating Research Into Clinical Practice. She is author of Infinite Awareness: The Awakening of a Scientific Mind.

Here she describes the results of a survey in which over 300 respondents reported details of experiences that fit the pattern of a Kundalini awakening. One surprising finding was that the reports matched those found in the writings of the tenth century philosopher and theologian, Abinavagupta. She explains the classical descriptions of Kundalini and endeavors to describe how this could be conceptualized in terms of contemporary neuroscience.
