ICR’s 38th Annual Conference August 6, 2023,

Online 12:00 PM – 6:00 PM EDT

4:00 pm - 10:00 pm GMT time

Kundalini, Consciousness & Our Evolution to Enlightenment

Preliminary Practices on Paths to Transcendence in Eastern Traditions 1:05 – 2:00 pm EDT/ 5:05-6:00 pm GMT


Various methods exist for preparing the mind for profound insights and psychological changes which can happen during spontaneous Kuṇḍalinī awakenings and meditation practices – and refining our behaviour when accessing deeper structures of the mind can be highly significant. Ann will explore the mechanisms behind thought in Sāṃkhya Metaphysics (a philosophy which supports most traditions in Tantra and Yoga) to understand better how ethical behaviour impacts various stages on the path to awakening. She will also look at how preliminary practices such as the Pāramitā (transcendent action) safeguard against certain psychological hindrances when we start to deepen our insights, and she will examine spiritual teachers’ responsibility and the impact their behaviour has on furthering enlightenment.
