A review from All Movie Guide: As part nine of the Joseph Campbell’s Mythos series, this video investigates Kundalini Yoga. This spiritual practice focuses on the chakra, or energy centers in the human body. It is believed that if the energy of the chakras is balanced and alingned, a practitioner can transcend suffering. Campbell also compares this form of yoga to Western Psychology and Christianity, and how in essence, all of these philosophies and religions are acting as the same thing, a guide or a map through the human life-cycle. — Ed Atkinson
