Description of Training

 

This course prepares practitioners to teach the foundational teachings of Kundalini Diagnostics to clients who are curious and want to learn more about their bodies and experience an alternative way to approach their kundalini energy.   Teaching Baseline Kundalini theory, participants learn a variety of Bodywork techniques that are presented to their clients including Chakra Diagnostics, Energy Movement, Pranayama, Body dynamics, sublimation, Psychoanalysis, Biohacking, neuroscience – Namely Neurogenesis, Energy Controlling Techniques, and spirituality.

 

These are taught by attending the training with a 'Model” or 'Body” which is practiced throughout the training. The Face to Face training involves somatic hands-on training and home study includes self-experience. The learning is individual rather than as a group. There is no sharing or exchange of energy in the training. Each student brings their own participant for the training with whom they have discussed boundaries with and home study is with whom they choose to participate with. The students do not touch each other in the training – this is a strict boundary.

 

The Training involves group training on their massage table in all the elements of the bodywork. There is an extensive 200+ page professionally written Manual in full color including over 15 handouts. There are also slides, and extensive exercises and written references, and materials to read and study over the training period.

 

Students are supervised for 5 sessions. There is also a 3 month period of after-study assistance, supervising, and mentoring offered to the students for when they begin to offer sessions or want to practice further to polish their skills. We welcome diversity in age, culture, background, life experience, sexual orientation, and gender identities, characteristics, or expressions.

 

Course Structure

 

Supervised Practicum

 

Students complete a minimum of 6 hours of Kundalini Massage sessions with their 'Model” and, if possible, with another student in order to polish and learn the program and experience it for themselves. The supervision involves a report on their experience of the practice sessions and any questions that arose during this session. Including the psychoanalysis of the client in which to better ask the right questions and open and close the energetics of trauma, PTSD, personal experiences, Shadow work, and unconscious programming. Students can arrange a mentorship program for 3 months with their facilitator to better perfect their leanings and teachings in Kundalini Massage fundamentals.

The Power of The Program

modern day therapies are very limited in their ways of helping people through what we call life. There are, at times, unexplainable ailments that cause us to question the effectiveness of modern medicine and so we seek further answers in other alternative medicines. 

Trauma has become an increasingly interesting area of focus in relation to personal growth. Trauma lays hidden in the body and if left unattended, can harness effects to our body and mind while in an unconscious state. 

Shadow work and other means of therapies like Kundalini Massage, assist to overcome the hurdles that Trauma can cause to our individual selves. 

If you have been seeking another way in which you can assist your clients, through somatic bodywork, healing, understanding, education, and stimulation, then Kundalini Massage Practitioner Training is for you. 

This training is the most unique training of its kind in the world. 

Your seven chakra centers, which can be likened to springs of vibrational energy within your body, contribute to your sense of mental well-being. As a dynamic system driving your ability to function intellectually, the chakras are susceptible to negative energy. When this negative energy accumulates in your body over time, the result is the manifestation of a chakra block. Clearing your chakras of negative energy can help you regain mental clarity and feel like yourself again. However, in order to proceed with opening one or more of your chakras, you must first identify the source of the problem. You’ll be able to target your healing activities towards the closed or weak chakra once you’ve determined the location of your energy disturbance.

Throughout the Kundalini experience, the therapist will go through personal and private questions with you, to determine which energy centre is blocked and needs to be cleared. This is a beautiful and powerful tool. Once you’ve located a dysfunctional chakra, you can go about clearing it. Since the experience of mental block relates to your ability to control your thoughts and access the information stored in your mind, meditation, rites, Massage therapy, Mudras, pranayama and a mixture of all, is the best way to restore a blockage. When you meditate with your focus on the chakra center you need to heal, you learn to quiet your mind and eradicate mental chaos and confusion. Kundalini Bodywork Therapy allows you to practice your ability to focus and conscientiously build your mental awareness. Just as you might clean up a room filled with clutter.  

 

Kundalini Massage is the method of awakening latent powers of super consciousness that are dormant in humans within their sushumna nadi or spinal cord. Kundalini is a form of energy (knowledge and consciousness energy) dormant, which can be awakened by different methods. Moving of Kundalini energy up the energy chakras or special energy centers in the sushumna opens the doors of knowledge and blissful divine experiences.

 This kundalini is compared to a snake coiled and sleeping within mooladhara chakra, the lowest energy centre of sushumna in the spinal cord. When arose, the energy moves up through the different energy centres through the spine to reach the seventh chakra. The conscious effort to awaken kundalini should be practised only under the guidance of a kundalini massage therapist. The high spiritual awareness and enlightened state that one achieves by awakening may be beyond the control of the person. There can also be imbalances in the mind and body of the person, which a trainer can identify and appropriately rectify. Experiencing Kundalini Massage is not easy for anyone. People practising this may be frightened by the experience of sudden energy flow through their body, the smell, touch and sounds they experience with the awakening of kundalini. They also may be distracted by the energy flow they get.

Pranayama can be combined to awaken kundalini shakti. Meditation is another method of awakening kundalini. Some methods of yoga or bodywork employ harsh techniques to awaken the dormant power, while others just soothe the energy fields so that kundalini can enter the energy channel. Concentrating on the kundalini energy field while practising pranayama in a pose designed for deep meditation can awaken kundalini energy very quickly. The person may or may not be able to handle the energy flow. Many yogis believe it is not OK to awaken Kundalini without the presence of a teacher, while others frown down the idea and say it is OK to awaken the energy. There are different techniques of awakening kundalini energy. Know that it is serious psychic energy and inability to control the energy may lead to several problems including mental imbalances.
