Always in Ecstasy Enjoying the 'Inner Woman' and 'Wine'
About the talk: Modern day practitioners are on an artificial form of chemical pilgrimage for consciousness-raising experiences. This lecture explores the yogic practice of kundalini yoga of Shakta Tantra, its symbol and imagery of the subtle body with its spectacular micro-macro homologies that chart the way to an eternity of spiritual ecstasy.
