Maha Shivaratri: The Night of Shiva
Date: 12-14 February 2018
The most auspicious and potent night on the yogic calendar, Mahashivaratri is a night to experience the depths of your consciousness.
There is a strong upward surge of energy pulsing through the system. An energetic surge you can ride into true yoga, union.
If there’s is one night during the year to dedicate yourself to sadhana & meditation…this is it.
One simple way to benefit is to simply remain awake and alert with your spine erect throughout the entire night.
But if you combine this with the proper sadhana you can boost the benefit in a huge way.

The Importance of Your Foundation in Kundalini Yoga
Why is it so important to cleanse and bring stability to the root chakra?
Because just like building a house, all serious work with Kundalini needs to start with the foundation.
Without a solid foundation, you can have many powerful experiences but you won’t receive permanent results.
By stabilizing your root chakra you’ll be building a proper foundation to go deeper into Tantra and Kundalini. Stability is almost the most important thing to achieve before ramping up the pitch of energy in your system.

Ashwin Navaratri is one of the two main Navaratri’s during the year.
