Incidents of profound spiritual awakening are being reported worldwide these days as massive transformation occurs across the planet. Each opening is unique. All are life-changing. All mark the beginning of a long and mysterious journey, directed by the life force itself and known as Kundalini. Dorothy Walters experienced such transfiguration in l981 when little or nothing was known in the West about this phenomenon. With no guide or teacher to help her, she followed the direction of the “inner guru” to carry her through her long journey of awakening and transformation. This process changed her life totally, leading her to dedicate her life to experiencing, researching, and writing both poetry and prose about the mystery called Kundalini (the life force) and helping others on the path.
She feels that universal Kundalini awakening is the means for planetary and personal evolution of consciousness, and that evidence of planetary initiation is becoming more and more prevalent. Her Kundalini awakening and the subsequent process of unfolding are described in her memoir Unmasking the Rose: A Record of Kundalini Initiation. Her poems taken from her four previous volumes are published as Some Kiss We Want: Poems Selected and New. Her article on “Kundalini and the Mystic Path” was included in Kundalini Rising, an anthology from Sounds True Publications. Her poems, which have been included in many anthologies and journals, have been set to music and sung at the Royal Opera House in London as well as Harvard University, used as texts for sermons and read aloud in churches, included in doctoral projects, been frequently quoted, and have given inspiration to many.
