Kundalini: literally means coiled. In yoga, a “corporeal energy” – an unconscious, instinctive or libidinal force or Shakti, lies coiled at the base of the spine. It is envisioned either as a goddess or else as a sleeping serpent, hence a number of English renderings of the term such as ‘serpent power’. The kundalini resides in the sacrum bone in three and a half coils and has been described as a residual power of pure desire.
Went to my fourth Kundalini Yoga class yesterday. It has become my favorite thing to do. I would go every day if there was a class. It’s probably no coincidence that it goes back to chicks with snakes. I mean, how archetypal can you get?
The “Fall of Man” or the moment we gained consciousness is no small event in our evolution. And FalloutGirl is all about knowledge! Chicks with snakes is powerful stuff.
Even Brit knows the power of this image. I doubt I’ll be doing any photo shoots of myself with snakes anytime soon. (KodakGirl – When do you come back to LA?) But I’ll be thinking about them…
