Ep153: Kundalini & The Occult - Mary Shutan Guru Viking Podcast

    • Religion & Spirituality

In this episode I am joined by Mary Shutan: author, occultist, and spiritual teacher.

Mary shares her journey from a traumatic early childhood to adoption into an upper-middle class family, and how spiritual overwhelm in her teenage years, and a subsequent kundalini awakening, drove her to in-depth study of spiritual themes.

Mary details her own kundalini experience, including challenging side effects, kundalini traps, and the role of sacrifice on the spiritual path.


Mary also discusses her love of reading and magical realism, recounts her time as a ritual magician working with the dark feminine, advises on encounters with entities and extra-terrestrials, and describes the different types of spiritual protection employed by institutions and public figures.
