Have you tasted the bliss of inner awakening… but were unable to sustain it?
Would you like to master ancient techniques that allow you to tap into the pranic energy field around and within you to deliver more lasting joy, vibrancy, and peace into your life?
Did you know that you have the power within you to activate your heart chakra and create a golden sheath around your body that protects you from negative or harmful energies from the world?
All of this and much more is possible through your innate primal Shakti energy known as Kundalini. It’s a word enveloped in mystery, mythology, and misconceptions.
This energy is said to enter us at birth and remain latent until ignited. Once awakened, the vital energy of Kundalini begins flowing up your spine like lava from an oozing volcano, flooding your body, mind, and spirit with the divine love-energy of the universe, immersing you in bliss and enabling you to access a more boundless field of love.
The Kundalini energy is often depicted as a serpent, coiled three-and-a-half times around, resting at the base of the spine, with the serpent representing the journey of the mind from matter to cosmos, from human consciousness to cosmic consciousness.
Kundalini can be awakened in many ways — as a gift from a guru to a disciple who is prepared to receive it, or through ecstatic dance, devotional chanting, the use of sacred mantras, rhythmic breathing and movement, or a variety of other techniques and practices.
Fully awaken the energy vortex of Kundalini, and through the gateway of the spinal cord you can access the ever-new, ever-existing, superconscious bliss state.
Kundalini is not just an energy; it’s a map of your consciousness. When activated in the right way, there are few things that can accelerate your spiritual awakening faster than tapping into this divine force within you, which is why Tantric teachers have worshipped Kundalini as the Goddess incarnate within us.
In Awakening Your Kundalini, spiritual teacher Raja Choudhury will offer you potent, practical insights into working with this powerful Shakti energy safely and harmoniously to deepen and enrich your experience of life as you embark on this divine dance of awakening.
Raja, who’s been initiated in many lineages and received various transmissions that empowered him as a spiritual teacher, has also lived a full life in the world as a media producer and family man. He’s thus skilled at teaching how to work with profound spiritual practices and energies while also being firmly grounded in the world and fully engaged with life.
Raja will gently guide you through a 7-part process to ensure that you are physically, mentally, and spiritually prepared to handle this powerful energy surging through your subtle body. Just as the filament in a 40-watt bulb would be fried if you sent 100 watts of energy through it, your body, mind, and soul must rise to the appropriate vibration to prevent headaches, dizziness, and other symptoms of “energy overload.”
First, you must ground yourself, and become solidly energized and adapted to the physical nature of consciousness, because the Kundalini energy will first enter the three chakra centers at the bottom of your body. Raja refers to this area as the First Sun.
When that area is energetically cleansed and empowered, you come to the heart chakra, the Second Sun. When the Kundalini energy enters this area, two things happen. One, you evolve naturally and inevitably into a better version of yourself — acting from your heart and becoming kinder, more compassionate, more empathetic...
And two, given that you’re now more open and vulnerable, you protect yourself from the negativity outside you by using specific mantras to create an impenetrable energy field (aka a “golden egg” or golden sheath) around your entire body.
By the time you’ve lifted the Kundalini energy to your heart center, your life has already begun transforming and you’re on your way to becoming an emissary of light in the world.
Bringing the energy into the upper three chakras — the Third Sun — dissolves your ego into the ether, and you rise up to the highest realms to connect your energy (Shakti) with the energy of the universe (Shiva) and unite as one.
As you advance on this journey from self to Self, as you mingle the single drop of your consciousness with the vast ocean of Spirit, your entire being is flooded with divine light, you gain access to a vast intelligence, and you become a Sky Walker... one who walks with the yogis.
When you come out of the womb of this Sacred Mother energy into the light of higher consciousness, all of creation will conspire on your behalf to bring your heart’s desire to fruition.
And since your core energy is the life force that propels all that you do, awakening your Kundalini can have a profound impact on your personal magnetism, creativity, and ability to motivate others. In short, it’s like plugging into a higher voltage current for your life.
Awakening the Kundalini energy requires two things — energy and breath. You need to bring the energy that is all around you into your body in order to wake up the dormant Kundalini energy inside you.
This energy outside and inside your body is called prana — and as you bring it into yourself, a certain vitality comes into your life. You start radiating an energy... your skin begins to glow... you feel less tired, more focused, and less fearful...
You’re also better able to control your emotions and your reactions — your sexual desires, your hunger, your food needs... all these kinds of things come under your control.
As Raja guides you through this experiential map of awakening the Kundalini energy and welcoming bliss consciousness, you may be wondering whether you’ll be so blissed out that you’ll lose the desire to act in the world.
Just the opposite is true. The purpose of awakening the Kundalini energy is not to transcend your day-to-day life, it’s to purify and prepare your body, mind, and spirit to welcome the Divine into your life — and then embody and express that divinity in every moment, with every breath.
With your Kundalini energy awakened, you’ll become an observer of everything... and when you observe everything, and see through the drama to the role you’re playing, you gladly play your part with a deep sense of gratitude while staying continuously aware of your center and your stability.
You don’t become useless in the world, you actually become more active and engaged, with a heart full of bliss. When others cross your path, your beacon of love can set their flickering lanterns ablaze.
Kindle the light in others and your own heart glows ever more brightly. The more you give of your love, the more love you have to give. You cannot look anywhere without seeing opportunities to help, comfort, or inspire others. Your mere presence becomes an act of service.
Yet the world needs more from you than service. It needs your creativity, your innovation, and your dreams. Waking up the Kundalini energy within you unleashes these latent creative powers.
Awakening the Kundalini energy frees your spirit to transcend the body-consciousness of the ego and align with Spirit. Pressure, fear, and struggling give way to peace, love, and bliss. You’ll feel more joyously and passionately alive than you ever have before, and empowered to go forth and change the world with the gifts that only your awakened self can offer.
Course sessions are on Wednesdays at 10:00am Pacific.
In this 7-part transformational intensive, Raja will guide you through the fundamental spiritual skills and competencies you’ll need to gently and safely awaken the Kundalini energy within you while you remain firmly grounded.
Each 2-hour class session features teachings and Q&A, followed by a 15-minute meditation with Raja. Each session will build harmoniously upon the previous ones so you’ll develop a complete holistic understanding of the practices, tools, and principles you’ll need to experience the bliss of inner awakening.
We’ll begin by demystifying Kundalini (aka Shakti) by exploring the esoteric and spiritual meaning of how this mysterious force within each one of us activates the bridge between heaven or cosmos and our higher selves on one side and with the earth of our animal evolutionary nature on the other. We’ll explore the biology of this energy and consciousness and its relation to the cerebrospinal fluid, the vagus nerve, and the pineal gland. We’ll travel through the history and esoteric mystery schools of India and experience this hidden energy which sits at the base of the spine and, once activated, opens up a light bridge through the spinal cord and brain that connects the seeker from the darkness of the earth to the light at the higher regions of their consciousness — and we’ll explore how to live in the middle at the heart center.
In this module, you’ll:
We’ll explore how we can bring energy into our bodies and learn to breathe in order to awaken the Kundalini Shakti at the base of our spine. Energy is everywhere around us and certain practices can increase our inner prana and energy levels. We’ll also discover how we sit on the Earth and how our evolution as human beings began at this base and then rose up the spinal cord to develop our neocortex that we’re so reliant on today. By returning to the earth, we’ll learn how to ground ourselves and become fearless, strong, healthy, and in control of our urges.
In this module, you’ll:
We’ll explore the First Sun (aka Brahma Granthi), which is our reptilian brain that controls our fears, aggression, hunger, sexuality, and willpower. This region contains the three lower chakras — Muladhara, Svadhisthana, and Manipura — and we’ll explore how Kundalini rises through these centers at the beginning of her journey. We’ll explore the correlation of this Sun with our fight/flight mechanisms, food urges, sexuality, and fear and how by bringing them under control we can prepare ourselves for the rise of Kundalini and the opening of our higher consciousness.
In this module, you’ll discover:
We’ll open the heart center and become truly human beings, both in our actions in the world and in the experience of our bliss consciousness within. We’ll see the correlation between this center, Kundalini’s journey and the human immune system, happiness molecules, and general sense of wellbeing and divine bliss awareness. Raja will share his Shakti with you — and some participants may experience Shaktipat.
In this module you’ll discover:
We’re now ready to enter the higher realms and move beyond the elements of matter — earth, water, fire, and air. Now we’ll enter the etheric realms of spirit, mind, and bliss consciousness. We’ll map the journey of Kundalini as we navigate through the throat, over the head from the back of the neck, and then activate the third eye or the Agya Chakra between the eyebrows and at the pineal gland in Brahma’s Cave in the midbrain.
In this module, you’ll discover:
We’re now entering the etheric regions of intuition, higher consciousness, and light. You’ll learn about your third eye at the Agya Chakra and how Kundalini wraps around the whole brain and opens your inner eye. We’ll explore Brahma’s Cave (the midbrain) and the pineal gland and what happens when you open this center. You’ll discover how to visualize the upper brain from within and silence it in stillness. And then you’ll learn to tap into this intelligence and ask it to illuminate your life and guide your actions. You’ll then welcome this light and consciousness into your heart and learn the real art of surrender.
In this module, you’ll discover:
At this final stage, we’ll go through the techniques shared over the seven weeks and bring together a short single meditation technique that you can practice in your daily life. You’ll learn how to sustain the Kundalini energy, keep it from descending to your lower centers, and have it be available from the heart upwards at all times. You’ll discover how to work with the changes you’re going through and how to live like a creative, empowered Shakti in the world. You’ll learn the key Mantras that will help you sustain this energy and how to seek out the higher Thousand Suns within you.
In this module, you’ll:
In addition to Raja’s transformative 7-part virtual course, you’ll receive these powerful training sessions with leading visionaries and teachers. These bonus sessions complement the course and promise to take your understanding and practice to an even deeper level.
Award-winning filmmaker Raja Choudhury takes us on a quest into a man, his life, and the building of his dream. Guruji Amritananda, a most unusual man, was a nuclear physicist and atheist who at the age of 48 discovered Devi, the Goddess, and became a Guru to millions of people, he built India's only ashram-city dedicated to the sacred feminine Shakti; named Devipuram and is run mostly by women.
You’re receive a video of Raja doing the full 20-minute Kundalini Awakening Meditation in one sitting, which you can use as a daily practice to help you refine the teachings presented in the course. This video will reflect what you’ll learn over the course of seven sessions and will be given to you as a bonus at the end of the course.
In this bonus, you’ll receive a recording from Raja of the Sri Vidya Japa Mantras for facilitating deep relaxation and Kundalini awakening through sound in your own space and time.
This ebook, written and produced by Raja, visually outlines everything you’ll learn over the course of seven sessions and will be given to you as a bonus at the end of the course. Throughout the course, you’ll receive a single, downloadable PDF after each module that includes instructions on how to say Mantras and visuals of the exercises and meditations taught.
In this video presented by The Shift Network, you’ll hear several highly respected teachers who are members of ancient monastic lineages in India. Filmed in Rishikesh, India, these Swamis and Swamini provide a glimpse into age-old roots of yoga while also providing a tangible transmission of energy and consciousness.

Awakening your Kundalini was the best online course I have ever taken in my life. I absolutely love my teacher, Raja. He made me want to learn that there is more to this universe and he taught me about myself. At times the course material was a little difficult to follow, but the amount of online support by him and the Facebook group made it easy to follow. I love how he made himself accessible to his students. His following along with us on Facebook, answering questions and participating in our discussions, made me feel like he actually cared. No words can express how I feel at this moment. I like that he is so knowledgeable on the facts about this course, yet he taught from the heart — he really wanted us to understand our transformation. If we all could learn this material the world would be a better place.
— Andria Porter
I'm taking Awakening Your Kundalini, and I'm in the middle of the Advanced class. There are many good teachers out there, but if you were to ask your future self if you should take this class, I can tell you it would be a resounding “yes.” Raja gives 150% to his class; any question is on the table, not just what he teaches. I always wonder what the answer will be, but when I hear it, it sits with me as being true. Definitely use Facebook because he is always on there, and that is not something you will get with other teachers. You could also call this course 1,001 Ways to Hack Your Body. If you stick with it, I guarantee that you will have some really interesting experiences. My personality is sweeter and I can also meditate on my own. His energy is intense. Someone once commented, "All I do is remember him saying something and I can feel the energy all over again." Yes, that's what's happening. Raja is fun, we all love Raja, and you will too. He is who we've been waiting for. Take the class.
— Debbie, Smithtown, New York
This course has been a life-changing event for me. I have been [exploring] spirituality but was never 100% committed. Raja Choudhury’s guidance and energy is very profound. I felt his vibration in each class. I have joined the advanced course too, and I am on the path of awakening my own Kundalini. On days when I follow the meditation and exercise, I see a difference in myself. He has been able to catapult me out of the muck into the beautiful world of the awakened. There are no words to thank him and Shift Network.
— Josh, Ellicott City, Maryland
Raja Choudhury possesses comprehensive knowledge not found in any books I’ve read about Kundalini. I believe that his teaching is the most complete and succinct available on this subject at this time.

Raja is an incredible teacher and blessing. He shares his wisdom and powerful energy with heartfelt gratitude.

I felt my heart expand like never before. He made complex esoteric concepts easy to understand.
— Jan, Denver, Colorado
I had a basic understanding of Kundalini energy... but this course greatly exceeded my expectations. It’s awakened a much higher interest in working with the material than I could have EVER imagined. Raja’s presentation of material and style is masterful to a level I have never experienced before.
— Richard, Cape Coral, Florida
Raja gives everything of himself; I have never seen such dedication to students. The information and daily practices are life-changing. I learned a form of meditation that makes me want to set time aside and practice — it’s deep and beautiful and exciting! Wow! Thank you, Raja and Shift Network.
— Jennifer C., Worcester, Massachusetts
I love this course. It really provides the inner map of our Kundalini and more. Raja is a wise journey guide, a real beacon of light and life, and does so as an easily relatable modern teacher. I also love how visceral and hands-on our meeting with the subtle goddess, Kundalini, was and continues to be for me. if you are seeking spiritual embodiment and feeling fully alive, this is the course for you.
— Charlotte Hussey, Quebec, Canada
The quality of the teachings in this course are second to none. The knowledge, the delivery, and the generosity of his willingness to share all he has with his students shows Raja is one of the very, very best. This course has shown me that I’m on the right path and deepened my ability to meditate — and to work from the heart even more.
— Gill Wright, Norwich, England
I have so much, especially mantras, I have gone through healing of fears that came up to be cleared. I also appreciate the way he took his time to explain the work... I’m at a loss for words for how much I’ve gained from this course.
I was able to [respond with] knowledge instead of judgement based on culture towards symbols and practice. The learnings will enhance my overall development and growth, and with practice I look forward to enlightened beginnings.
My Shaktipat experience with Raja opened my heart, and Kundalini is the reason why I know he’s an awakened Kundalini teacher.
— Ricardo B Serrano, British Columbia, Canada

Raja helped me awaken my Third Eye and Heart chakras and introduced me to the secrets of Kundalini meditation and awakening the living Goddess inside of me. He gave me techniques and tools to experience another complete dimension of light, energy, and bliss inside of me. I am so grateful for this adventure we have been on and his immense love and Shakti energy.
— Eliana Koulas, Luxury Brand Director
After having attended several of Raja Choudhury’s workshops and seminars, each new invitation from him feels like receiving a letter from Hogwarts. Raja helps me leave behind my boring Muggle life to explore the universe and realize the infinite magic that lies within all our minds!
— Anuj Gupta, Faculty, St. Stephen’s College
I’ve been on a journey of self-discovery for many years now. I’ve reached a point where I now let my intuitive heart instead of my head guide me to “the next step,” and when I saw Raja’s workshop and meditation advertised, I INSTANTLY knew I had to be there — and I wasn’t disappointed! I found the information AWESOME! The meditation was easy, straight to the point, and profound; three things that I DON’T associate with most teachers these days. I definitely felt the energy and went through significant personal shifts and expansion in the following week! This meditation is NOT for you if you’re NOT ready to truly “let go.”
— Nick Terrone, Hypnotherapist
Raja Choudhury aims to disrupt human consciousness and awaken each of us to our true evolutionary potential using his deep knowledge of Kundalini Shakti, Tantra, and Kriya Yoga. In a personal quest of over 20 years, Raja has comparatively explored most of the great (and some unknown) wisdom traditions of the world and has experienced many teachings and transformative methodologies firsthand. He now wants to share this magical adventure and discoveries with everyone.
Raja’s own shift occurred in 2006 when he underwent a dramatic Kundalini awakening that rewired his system and opened up a new universe of potential. Raja initially started life as an architect from London’s Architectural Association and then went on to become a Webby-winning digital creative director in New York where this awakening occurred. Raja then created numerous documentary films on wisdom and consciousness, including Spirituality in the Modern World with Ken Wilber and Traleg Rinpoche; Yoga: Aligning to the Source; and acclaimed films on many great spiritual teachers. In 2014 he was awarded India’s prestigious National Film Award for his film, The Quantum Indians. He’s currently making a film for PBS on Swami Vivekananda called First Guru. Raja gave a TED talk, “Indian Wisdom for Today’s World,” in 2012 and a TEDx talk, “Yoga: India’s Open Source Gift to the World,” in 2015. His talks on Kundalini, Shiva, the Third Eye, and meditation are very popular on YouTube.
In his own spiritual quest, he was initiated first into Kriya Yoga in 1998 and went on to take deep initiations into Raja Yoga, advanced Kriya Yoga, and then finally, and most importantly, Sri Vidya and Kula Tantra, from Guruji Amritananda of Devipuram. Raja is currently exploring the deep non-dualism of the ancient Trika School.
Raja also practices Aikido and Qigong and is a passionate student of neuroscience, history, comparative mysticism, esoteric traditions, and the mind. His teachings are a syncretic blend of Eastern and Western ideas. In the past year, he has initiated over 600 people into the magic of Kundalini awakening, and shares his Shakti energy with them and the world via the Internet and regular workshops and retreats. Raja, who is married to Jagriti and has a 10-year-old daughter, Noor, and a cocker spaniel named Max, lives between New Delhi and New York.

“I’ve never seen a course so well put together ever...”
I had never participated before in an online course. The packaging, presentation, inclusion, and Facebook postings created a wonderful, safe cocoon within which to participate. I’ve never seen a course so well put together ever — not in all the years of taking college classes — and I had my doubts about doing an online course. The wealth of organization and ease of learning materials and support made this fun as well.
