An interesting bit of research on Kundalini
- Hello everyone-Dr.Hardt has done work on spiritual altered states
for the past 30 years and has ploted out some brainwave activity
associated with kundalini; Here is an multimodal EEG graph example:
What is interesting is that to him the kundalini seems to be a Delta
Brainwave phenomena, this is usually indicative of being in deep sleep
and being totally unaware.
- On second thought, while the idea of biofeedback is probably viable
notice that the output is an 8-channel EEG. Who uses an 8 channel
EEG? Even primative machines are 16 channel.
This guy has a 7 day retreat/training program which he charges
$15,000 for to teach you to 'cultivate the alpha brainwave state'.
That's something like 1st or maybe 2nd Jhana. Also if you read his
biography and then inspect his facility you will see that the
technology methods he was introduced to in 1968 using simple EEGs for
developing charasmatic states he has not changed; in almost 40 years
while charging thousands of dollars for participants!
This guy mostly looks like a scam artists and while I do think
neruofeedback of brainwaves is possible I think he is just putting
most of us on.
