in detail along with 5 additional meditation techniques
in - Shannahoff-Khalsa, D.S., Kundalini Yoga meditation
techniques in the treatment of obsessivecompulsive and OC spectrum disorders, Brief Treatment
and Crisis Intervention, 3:369-382 (2003). This
publication also reviews both of my clinical trials
and includes a
single case history for a woman
(in her own words) for the effects of brief treatment. This article can be downloaded with Adobe

This OCD specific protocol is also now published in my 2006 professional book: Shannahoff-Khalsa DS, Kundalini Yoga Meditation: Techniques Specific for Psychiatric Disorders, Couples Therapy, and Personal Growth, W. W. Norton & Company, New York, London, 2006, and in Shannahoff-Khalsa DS, Sacred Therapies: The Kundalini Yoga Meditation Handbook for Mental Health. W. W. Norton & Company, New York, London, 2012.

video is now available for purchase and it is intended
for use by those who suffer with OCD and/or other
anxiety-related disorders, stress, anger, or fear.
Specific techniques (all performed while sitting
in a chair) are taught for OCD, a range of anxiety
disorders, and also one specific for managing
fear and one for anger. By viewing the video you
can learn to do the protocol exactly as it should
be taught and for daily practice. This video is
also extremely beneficial for therapists who have
patients that are "treatment resistant"
to medication and/or refuse Cognitive Behavior
Therapy. By viewing the 11 different meditation
techniques and how they are to be practiced, someone
with no experience whatsoever in yoga or meditation
can now learn to practice the techniques that
have shown to be highly efficacious under rigorously
controlled scientific conditions.
