I would like to add some references to books that I have on the

AND THE SUN IT UP: Kundalini Rises in the West, by W. Thomas Wolfe,
Pub by Sun Books, Santa Fe, NM, 1978; ISBN 0-89540-166-5
Wolfe is a computer programmer, and when he learned of bio-feedback,
and other topics, he constructed a bio-feedback machine, learned to
stay in ALPHA for long periods of time, and found out a lot about the
Kundalini. He describes his experiences in scientific language, and
describes both good and bad experiences.

THE AWAKENING OF KUNDALINI, by Gopi Krishna, Pub. Kundalini Research
Foundation, New York, 1975; ISBN 0-525-47398-X

KUNDALINI The Evolutionary Energy in Man, by Gopi Krishna, Pub.
Shambhala, Boulder, 1971; ISBN 0-394-73010-0

THE KUNDALINI EXPERIENCE, by Lee Sannella, M.D., Pub. Integral
Publishing, 1987; ISBN 0-941255-29-8
Dr. Sannella co-founded the Kundalini Clinic in San Francisco, helping
many "victims" of sudden kundalini arousal to deal with this
experience successfully. He describes signs and symptoms, and his
observations, and his methods of identifying and treating both benign
& not so benign patterns. This is one of the best from the modern
point of view.

THE MYSTERIOUS KUNDALINI, by Vasant G. Rele., Pub. D. B. Taraporevala
Sons & Co, Bombay, no publishing date, but has a foreword by Sir John
Woodroffe. My copy is old and the paper is very yellowed. I understand
that some publishers have republished it. It is very technical from
the Indian point of view, with diagrams and photos of the author in
yoga positions.
