In the classical literature of Kashmir Shaivism kundalini is described in three different manifestions. The first of these is as the universal energy or para-kundalini. The second of these is as the energizing function of the body-mind complex or prana-kundalini. The third of these is as consciousness or shakti-kundalini which simultaneously subsumes and intermediates between these two. Ultimately these three forms are the same but understanding these three different forms will help to understand the differerent manifestations of kundalini.
The correct union of purusha/shiva and prakriti/shakti can transform the most asuric being into the most radiant angel.
Is there teachers who are at least aware that pranayamas (one of the principal cause of the negative symptoms) aren't needed at all and the study of chakras something completely unnecessary ?

I will agree that it is very dangerous but it isn't a choice to go near it or not. Kundalini is a gift given to individuals by i higher force that we don't fully yet understand.
I was gifted with a true kundalini experience and at the time didn't have a clue what was happening to me.
It was overwhelming and the experience stayed with me for two weeks but the residuals are permanent.
The following link describes a kundalini experience in perfect detail to my own experience and I'm certain anyone who has had the same can completely relate..
I have also read an amazing book (psychosis and spirituality) that discusses the similarities between psychosis and a spiritual awakening and the difficulties that the world of psychology has differentiating between the two.
My belief is that many individuals will soon begin experiencing this awakening...
Due to the ecstacy and exhiliration of the experience, there is a real temptation, like the mythic Icarus, to fly too high, which is only to set yourself up for a corresponding fall. During these experiences it is of the utmost importance to be as grounded as possible. The great psychiatrist C. G. Jung understood the importance of this during his “Confrontation with the Unconscious.” He used to keep pictures of his family around, so he could remember that he was, in his words, “an actually existing, ordinary person.”
90% of what is said about Kundalini is patently false.
