A further key implication of Harpur's thought is the idea that the creative human imagination is a perceptive faculty, a means of seeing and transforming the world....

In this newly posted research article we look into the life of Walt Whitman as an example of an awakened Kundalini. Through Whitman's poetry we explore
the particular characteristics of an awakening, presented by Gopi Krishna and R.M.Bucke. It is our hope that the research articles presented on this website will inspire you to do your own research into the lives of mystics and geniuses throughout the world. We are always looking for research articles that can be posted on the website or submitted to qualify for our Research Honorarium.
