Atma Charan Kaur is so excited to share the publication of her new book, "Kundalini Serpent Goddess: Rising from the Borderlands." She's so proud of this huge accomplishment, telling her transition from an academic to a yoga teacher, the wounds of our sisterhood in a patriarchal age that’s crumbling down, and her struggle with chronic back pain and fibromyalgia. It’s inspiring, heartfelt and she can’t wait for you to read it! Read reviews below:
“This memoir takes us into an intimate, unique and fascinating journey with the author, through a lifetime of challenge, dedication, crisis and self-evolution, bearing witness to Karin’s courage, resilience, and ultimate healing, as she came to experience the Adi Shakti within the depths of her own humanity.”
~ Sangeet Kaur Khalsa, Sikh Dharma Minister, Editor and Kirtan Musician.
“True and honest… naturally outspoken! This memoir is an extraordinary example of how to transcend difficult life experiences. All the way back to her ancestors, Karin becomes a strong voice, speaking up from her heart and womb without losing her integrity and feminine essence. Story after story, she delightfully engages the reader—as herself and the character, Kundalini Serpent Goddess become one and the same.”
~ Jess Rodriguez, LMT, Bodyworker, RMT, Wholistic Therapist Yoga Teacher, Founder of The Core StarMoonSky Universal Healing.
“Astonishing and Awakening! Karin’s narrative is deep and profound, setting herself on a path of spiritual connection to feminine “ Shakti” power, as well as mythical characters as she relies on anthropological and archeological findings that spur her imagination. Karin beautifully intertwines photographs and different voices through time as well as several places and cultures that remind me of the novel, Rayuela by Julio Cortázar. Her dynamite twists for action offer an insightful look into her social and spiritual life that are moving and inspiring, and make her story unique and valuable—for ages to come.”
~ Ruth Figueroa, Yoga Professor, Wellness & Holistic Travel Coach.
“An epic journey turning pain into power. From analytical to intuitive, fear to faith, powerless to powerful, loss to gain, professor to yoga teacher. Karin releases the conditioning of her past to heal the trauma of societies’ handcuffs for women. She is the Phoenix rising, a Goddess Warrior who embodies the balance of being feminine, fierce and focused.”
~ Sierra Bender, author of Goddess to the Core, creator of the clinically proven 4Body FitTM Sierra Bender Empowerment Method.
“Written with compassion, humility and insight, this memoir affirms the value of our borderland ancestors to healing and re-membering ourselves. Karin’s internal and external journeys in our Américas make up a travelogue of the soul towards its destiny as it re-encounters and rebuilds the body, bridging us back from our spiritual exiles.”
~ Carlos Ulises Decena, Professor of Sociology at Rutgers University, author of Tacit Subjects and Circuits of the Sacred.
Karin Atma Chanan Kaur, Ph.D is a yoga and meditation teacher as well as a writer and educator. She brings a wealth of experience from her days teaching Sociology and Women’s Studies at the university to the growing field of spirituality and well-being. A Fulbright scholar, born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Karin Atma Chanan has been active in social justice and human rights issues for Latina immigrant women and people of color communities since the nineties. She’s a Kundalini Yoga Teacher and founder of the Kundalini Yoga Online School, SoulHeartYoga/YogaAlmaCorazón, and the author of Kundalini Serpent Goddess: Rising from the Borderlands, a memoir that describes her back injury and struggle with fibromyalgia, a disease that affects more than 10 million people in the United States, ninety-five percent of whom are women. Her book narrative takes us deep into chronicles of the author growing up with Tupi-Guarani gaucho life, as well as immigrant life in the Borderlands, Indigenous and Yoruba Goddess archetypes, and shamanic journeys. She shares with us the expectations placed on the social female body and healing from physical, sexual, and ancestral trauma, debunking our ideas about patriarchal Christianity and Western Medicine. She brings to her practice an array of energetic and healing tools like Reiki, Mindfulness, Womb Medicine, and Kundalini Awakening. Her memoir offers a new vision for Mother Earth, as we prepare ourselves to embrace the wisdom and knowledge readily available since ancient times into the new paradigm of the Aquarian Age.
