Biology of Kundalini A Science and Protocol of Spiritual Alchemy    

Bioenergetics

   

Bioenergetics, a form of bodymind therapy developed by Wilhelm Reich and Alexander Lowen is another method of approaching the body armor and consequently releasing toxic repression. One would assume that if we are directly touching and expressing the tension held in our body armor that neurological changes reflecting this release must occur within the brain. Thus I assume that if we lovingly address our muscular armor, our brain will recover from toxic repression, and there is no better time to do this than when our nervous system is already perturbed, and our connective tissue already dissolving during active kundalini. By adopting these "unlocking" practices while kundi-active we help to facilitate rewiring and we are less likely to snap back to our former repressed cocoon self once with awakening is over. This point is vitally important for anyone going through kundalini, and is the reason why yoga is an integral part of Eastern spiritual practice.

Flexibility and fluidity are essential to living organisms; age and disease are reflections of life losing its plasticity--good heart rate variability is a sign of a youthful heart and the saintly maverick Osho reminded us that we are as young as our spine is flexible.

Wilhelm Reich says that few of us experience a full sexual response in orgasm. This is partly due to the devitalizing, neuro-clogging cooked diet, but also due to the general devitalizing process of Western Living as such. A full release implies that one is in full possession of oneself first. That is in order to fully "loose" yourself in orgasm you must first be fully embodied as a sovereign spiritual entity. But if we have been conditioned into repressing the best and the worst in us to fit into our parents/societal program there is no way that we are either going to be fully souled, fully sexed or even in touch with our shadow. And this is where the neurodetoxification of fossilized repression comes in as a method of soul and sex retrieval.

As we evolve we need to honor our animal-responses in order to not become rigid, suppressive and enervated (loss of energy). Obviously our 4F responses are going to change as we grow, but if we don't acknowledge the reality of our animal foundations we will try to kill it by deathly means (Thanatos). Thus we need to deal with shock, fear, anger, stress and grief by skillful means to avoid the tendency toward cumulative neurotoxic repression.

"A totality of response to any situation is unusual in our culture. We are all in too much conflict to surrender fully to any feeling." P.245 Alexander Lowen, Bioenergetics.

You could engage in Bioenergetics through seeing a therapist, learning the exercises, or reading any of the fourteen books written by Lowen, such as Joy, Depression and the Body, Fear of Life, Pleasure, Honoring the Body, The Voice of the Body and Bioenergetics. And Wilhelm Reich's prestigious works: Children of the Future: On the Prevention of Sexual Pathology, The Bioelectrical Investigation of Sexuality and Anxiety, Character Analysis, and The Function of the Orgasm. You can find a local Bioenergetics Therapist at the website of The International Institute for Bioenergetic Analysis
