i heard something about koreans being obsessed with kundalini, yea, and i wondered ever since if there is anything to it or not...

I will make something plain,
its a very interesting variation of shamanism to study up on because it is very secular this way. the initiation illness has a statistically documented frequency that has been studied for nearly 50 years .
Its a spiritual life that is proven by science
It might not be politically correct, and it doesn't pander to being 'holistic' or 'healthy'
Its spiritual nourishment, the mending of your soul,
but it doesn't beat around the bush and it won't guide you by the hand
it won't tell you how to live your life
If the supernatural makes for good horror fiction,
and fear and apprehension are synonyms,
this is the path you approach from
its a spiritual ordeal that begins with fear, apprehension, and terror before the cosmic .
it is.. very Lovecraftian this way
will make you go insane
and.. turn you into a proper, god-fearing person
Though you may be dismembered,
you'll learn lessons
it is a harsh, but true and steady hand
