Kundalini Symposium, our annual conference, is a conduit for scientists, philosophers, mystics, activists, thought leaders, and wisdom-keepers to connect with a growing international community of supporters. Kundalini is one of the most important ideas in the world today, with the power to revolutionize our understanding of all major aspects of human life, including the environment, politics, economics, health, psychology, etc. At Kundalini Symposium you’ll learn, connect, and evolve. You’ll hear from thought leaders from diverse fields and will walk away with new knowledge, inspirational ideas, and new ways to connect knowledge with practice.
Kundalini is a word from ancient India, but describes a universal phenomenon found in all cultures throughout the world — the experience of spiritual awakening. Kundalini is the biological mechanism behind evolution and Higher Consciousness- the goal of evolution.
The event is 100% free and all videos will remain free! You will be able to access these important videos on YouTube after the conference. Like what we are doing? Show your support by donating to this important cause.
This year’s theme – “Kundalini: Radical Science and Evolution”
For humankind to progress forward, a new approach toward science and evolution is desperately needed. According to the late Kundalini yogi and researcher Gopi Krishna, consciousness research now demands that we turn our attention from the outer world to the inner world, making our own bodies the laboratory and humbly approaching Spirit for instruction in the rudiments of this science. Likewise, the world will require revolutionary new thinkers, innovators, builders – and most of all, spiritual genius – to guide her down the path of evolution. This year’s Kundalini Symposium will highlight radical new ideas in our approach to both science and evolution.

Corinne Lebrun – Kundalini and Human Evolution in the Digital Age
What does social media have to do with spirituality and kundalini energy? Is there a place for the awareness kundalini awakenings creates while in the workplace? And what evidence do we have that human beings are evolving towards higher awareness instead of evolving towards negativity and oppression? Corinne will explore how these topics converge from the scientific, pragmatic, academic and mystical perspectives. You will be inspired by thought provoking ideas you can take into your daily life and bring positive transformation to the people around you.

Laura Styler – Healthy Energetic Boundaries for Radical Evolution: Embracing Integrity on the Energetic Level – Guided Meditation
About Laura Styler
Laura Styler is a graduate of the Barbara Brennan School of Healing, the world’s premier institute for the study of the Human Energy Field, hands-on-healing, and Transpersonal Psychology. She is also a graduate of the School for Non-Dual Healing and Awakening and a Certified Fertility Awareness, Reproductive Health Educator.
For over a decade, Laura has been working together with doctors and other complementary practitioners as part of a health care team, to enhance the body’s natural healing capabilities especially with auto-immune disorders, pain management, and fertility since opening her private practice in NYC.
As a kinesthetic Empath with psychic and clairvoyant abilities Laura can see the energy meridians, chakras, and fields within the Human Energy-Consciousness system. She specializes in repairing rips, and what she calls “micro-tears” with surgical-like precision through energy transmission and light touch.
In 2005 when symptomatic issues arose, along with a spike in her psychic abilities after receiving energy work from an untrained healer, she was told she was having a Kundalini awakening. This led her on a path of personal healing and transformation where she discovered her “new gifts” were due to unhealthy tears and energy leaks in her energy field.
Years later after reaching an authentic Kundalini Bliss State she now teaches Empaths, and Energetic Sensitives how to develop healthy energetic boundaries in order to enhance their gifts, without taking on others’ emotions or physical pain. Visit Laura’s website to learn more.
KEYNOTE SPEAKER ~ BONNIE GREENWELL – Kundalini: Living With an Inner Revolution
Kundalini is the life force engaged in the deconstruction and realignment of your energy and consciousness, and this dynamic impacts every area of your life. It is both a revolution and evolution that triggers a radical shift in how you see yourself and the world It is your own energy field reorganizing so that you can know the answer to your deepest longing for truth, and live your life with a new perspective. But like any revolution it can bring profound challenges. What can you expect and how can you learn to trust this process as it unfolds in your life?
Carl Calleman Ph.D. – Is the Plumed Serpent Returning and if so, in what way?
What are the Serpents of ancient times? They were so much revered and for instance symbols of the rising Kundalini energy. Why was the Serpent so widespread as a spiritual force in ancient times and why was it cursed by Yahweh in the Biblical Creation story? Is it good or is it evil and how are we to relate to it? If Kundalini energy is a Serpent energy what does this tell us about it? Based on Mayan cosmology, where the Plumed serpent was one of the foremost divinities I will in this presentation discuss what it can mean to us at the present time.
About Carl Calleman
Carl Johan Calleman is a scientist and philosopher who has devoted his past thirty years to understanding the evolution of consciousness and life based on the Mayan calendar. Born in Stockholm, Sweden he gained a Ph.D. in Physical Biology and spent twenty years doing laboratory research into toxicology and Cancer Research.
In 1994 he left his career in the hard sciences behind and started to lecture about one of the greatest mysteries of our time: The Mayan Calendar and has for instance written six books on this topic with the aim of making this accessible to modern people. His focus has been on explaining both biological and mental evolution up until the current time and beyond. The Nine Waves of Creation

Michael Molina – Making Sense of an Awakening World
Ancient traditions speak of great upheavals at times when the world is on the brink of transformation. From political upheavals to glaring holes and contradictions in materialistic science, we live in a world seemingly divided. Yet at the same time, a wide-spread spiritual awakening is taking shape. Michael Molina will help you make sense of these changes, framing the discussion in the context of a major scientific revolution that will begin with the work of the Emerging Sciences Foundation and others.
