Namaste.
Thank you for visiting my page!  I'm Christopher Tompkins, a scholar of Sanskrit and Tantrik Yoga History. You can learn more about me here.

For the last decade, I have devotedly researched hundreds of mostly un-published Tantrik texts spanning 1,400 years of un-chartered Yoga history. My focus has been on the role and evolution of Kundalinī and the Chakras in Tantrik Yoga, with a specialization for deciphering the actual daily practices.

I've found extensive evidence that Kundalini Shakti was originally experienced as a liberating sonic power, drawn down from the crown of the head (in the subtle body).  My goal is to illuminate the daily Kundalinī-based Yoga practice from which our current streams of modern yoga -including embodied practices- have emerged. 


Patrons who support me here with a monthly donation will receive:
  • updates on current writing posted only in Patreon
  • forum to ask questions on all of my research, answered weekly
  • access to a monthly online Webinar (live, but also recorded) in which you can receive translations on the teachings of Kundalinī, Chakras & original practices, as well as ask questions to unpack this rich history.
  • monthly members-only pdf translations from the original Sanskrit on Kundalinī and the Chakras, from (mostly) un-published Tantric texts. Here's a look at the breadth of texts I'm working with (video).
  • special guided meditations, as audio files. These will include translations of previously unknown Gayatri Mantras (from the Tantras), and Shākta (Goddess)-based Samyoga meditations.

It will also allow me to pay for my part-time assistant, whose work is critically needed! It will also me to continue delivering translations and inspiring teachings based on my PhD work to all of my patrons. All of this will be organized into a book for practitioners following the filing of my PhD! Your generosity is *much* appreciated.
