"My books describe the Kundalini awakening process,"
 says JJ Semple, "They explain how Kundalini is not only a source of energy available to all human beings, but also a providential inevitability. Deciphering the Golden Flower One Secret at a Time is a memoir of my Kundalini experience in easy-to-understand, non-technical language; it also explains the Karmic logic behind my experience, how "self-realization begins at birth; it is the journey as much as it is the destination.” If you’ve ever experienced feelings that "there’s something out there,” you’ll love this masterful account of spiritual awakening.

In a series of case studies on Kundalini, The Biology of Consciousness: Case Studies in Kundalini explores the origin of consciousness. Does consciousness continue after death? Does the entity — call it soul or spirit — that animates human beings during life on Earth continue to exist after death, or does it perish? How does evolution really work? What is Kundalini? Is it capable of refining the human genome during a single lifetime? Does it produce beneficial mutations that can be passed to future generations through DNA?

The case studies in this book support Gopi Krishna’s hypothesis that an evolutionary impulse guides individuals towards a biological process (Kundalini) that not only expands consciousness, but also passes the beneficial genetic effects of Kundalini to future progeny.

The Backward-Flowing Method: The Secret of Life and Death takes the subject even further. "I don't have a PhD. I never studied meditation with a well-known teacher. I learned to meditate on my own — working my way patiently through The Secret of the Golden Flower. I found it to be a treasure store of secret techniques and procedures. The most important was the backward-flowing method, a technique so secret the ancients swore an oath never to reveal it. I didn't stop there; I mastered all the techniques and I've molded them into the world's first method for safe, permanent Kundalini awakening. In fact, my two books contain completely original information that is not available anywhere else.”

Seminal Retention and Higher Consciousness: Higher consciousness and sexual sublimation (diverting sexual energy to the brain) are inextricably linked in most of the world’s meditation methods, especially those that target Kundalini activation. So where does seminal retention fit in? Seminal retention techniques can be used by male practitioners who want to continue sexual relations without the deleterious effects linked to ejaculating. Best meditation practices dictate renouncing ejaculation and sexual relations. Nevertheless, seminal retention techniques do provide a compromise for males not able or not willing to give up sex. They are also of interest to female practitioners.

"I believe that my experience can prepare others for the kinds of challenges they might encounter in activating Kundalini." The author’s real Self, to which Kundalini eventually brought her, is in evidence from page one, as she describes her upbringing in Catholic Ireland, her days in a boarding school run by nuns, her training as a nurse, and her escape to London, New York and India.

Paul Lyons

Paul Lyons was born in Australia. He attended Sydney University, and won a scholarship to read English at Cambridge, interpreting Shakespeare from a Tantric perspective, and got kicked out at the end of his first year. He worked as a brick layer and piano player in London. His first novel, The Eden Man, celebrating of the mysticism of manual labour, was a Times Reviewers Book Of The Year and won a Fellowship from the Australia Literature Board. His Kundalini awakening occurred on a frozen footpath in North London, when he encountered the Female Buddha, Vajrayogini, embodied in a beautiful Thai woman. He now lives in Mae Suai, in the mountains of Northern Thailand, teaching English and music in the village school.

About Natalie: "We are larger than life. Each of us is a transcendental energy focussed in a particular body and brain. This energy, Kundalini, is erotic, and is known in and through the body, a fact recognized by traditional wisdom in the names it gave this force: ‘Crooked One’, ‘She Who Goes Upwards’, ‘Dhombi’ (‘Washerwoman’, the lowest caste in Hindu society.) The arousing of Kundalini can sometimes occur unexpectedly and in a way that overthrows our ethical certainties. A dysfunctional sexual act may awaken a love which the deepest spirituality leaves untouched. Whether such unexpected awakenings are destructive or healing must remain an open question. ‘Natalie’ is the story of a man and woman who stumble upon Kundalini at a time and place that are unpropitious, and in a way that must surely destroy them, morally and physically. Erotic legends and classics, like Tristan and Isolde and Anna Karenina, speak of a love that is necessarily tragic because it defies convention and breaks taboos. Are there any conventions left to defy, or taboos left to break, in the early twenty-first century? Yes, and they are powerful ones: the conventional materialism of our day, and the taboo against opening the transcendental plane. Speaking about Kundalini in personal terms is difficult because Kundalini takes us beyond the personal. Paul Lyons presents his experience of Kundalini in the form of an erotic thriller that is also a love song."

Neil Bethell Sinclair
"I underwent a neurological transformation that I came later to understand as the full activation of the Kundalini. The overwhelming force of this activation transformed my brain and psyche into that of a poet, a mystic, and a visionary. The transformation took many years and resulted in various psychic abilities. In 1974, I began to write poetry spontaneously. During this time, my intellect became intoxicated by the continuous flow of concepts and psychic energy circulating throughout my body. The Spirit Flies Free is a collection of poems that plumb the depths of spiritual enlightenment and encompass the entirety of human experience, from politics to love, from current events to psychology.”

Cliff Terrell

Some call it modern detective fiction; we call it altered awareness fiction. In any case, The Shooting Case, by fledgeling author Cliff Terrell, a friend of JJ Semple's, is a thrilling ride that never lets up.

Summary

Late one night, Charles Appleton, Jr. pounds on the door of a house in a small New England college town. Believing he may be in danger, the homeowners let him in, but are forced to shoot him when he goes berserk. The police find no connection between the parties. The family is not charged.

Eight hundred miles away in Charlotte, NC, the Appleton family grows impatient with the futile nine month police investigation by the Coulter, MA authorities so they hire private detective, Trevor Nash. Twice in the national limelight, once as a returning POW tortured by Cuban guards in Vietnam; later as the Naval investigator who prosecuted Operation Tailgate, a rape scandal involving male Navy flying officers, Nash is sidetracked because of the over-zealous prosecution of an old-boy bank executive. He eagerly accepts the case.

Nash never recovered from his wartime detention in Vietnam. The Navy sent him to law school, but he never practiced. Private Investigation hasn't been a success either. He spends his time trying to prove Senator Josh Reed is responsible for an assassination attempt on the former Mayor of Charlotte. Offered an unsolved high-profile case, he thinks it just might restore his self-worth.

Before his Kundalini awakening, Terrell never wrote more than a one-page high school essay. He is currently working on two more fiction titles.
