Welcome

Introduction

Thank you for visiting the homepage of Kundalini Software and Systems Integration, LLC, which is a software and technology company created by Benjamin and Olya Pritchard and other founding partners.

Kundalini Software is named after a style of yoga called Kundalini Yoga, a branch of yoga which emphasizes techniques for tapping into the vast creative potentials within us.

Our passion is to ignite the spark of creativity in students, and we do that by creating products that promote S.T.E.A.M.M.+ based education: Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math, Music, plus Programming.


Kundalini Piano Platform

Our flag-ship offering is the Kundalini Piano Platform, our unique synesthesia-based music-learning system that unleashes creativity, teaches programming & true ambidexterity, and promotes full-brain development right from the beginning of a student’s journey into music.

Our product was originally an embedded-system (with a physical form factor), and was funded by a matching grant from the National Science Foundation/Burton D. Morgan Foundation. But now, thanks to a generous grant from the No Starch Press Foundation, we are refactoring our system into the form of a Software as a Service (SAAS) so that we can scale it up– to students the world over, potentially!!

It is our passion to unleash the creativity of the next generation with our technology, and for sure our philosophy is to let the children lead!!

Various Projects

Diversity and Inclusion

Our goal at Kundalini Software is to help empower everyone to find creativity within themselves… and when we say everyone, we mean everyone!

This can easily be seen in our Graduation New Energy Archetype pictured here. (Archetypes are organizing principles in consciousness.) Graduation brings diversity, inclusion, and participatory co-creation to everyone.

As this archetype continues to work its way into the mass consciousness, the world around us continues to transform according to the fundamental Lightning Path Principle: “As above in consciousness, so below in matter.” (Previously this world was dominated by old energy archetypes, which created a world of lies, hierarchy, domination, subterfuge, and slavery.)

Additionally, several specific Kundalini Software projects to help create a more just and equitable world can be seen here:

  • Kundalini Moonflower Female Empowerment Bracelet
  • Gayatri Box, an art empowerment kit for school-age children
  • In partnership with Sue Rad, “MyRadon“, a microloan program for Women Entrepreneurs

Music

Because we are startup company trying to help the world learn music, it only makes sense that we are also a band!

Kundalini Art Collective

Support Philly Art + Artists with InLiquid | InLiquid

We are also very proud to have started the Kundalini Art Collective, which is a loosely coupled group of artists creating art & music as the ultimate form of political protest.


Pitching

STEM Projects

I got my start in STEM education through my involvement with the Microsoft TEALS Program in 2019. Additionally, thanks to a generous grant from the No Starch Press Foundation, we are able to take our technology and passion for creativity into the schools to help enrich STEM-based education. Currently, we have developed several projects to help students learn to find the joy of programming and innovation:

  • Program Your Piano!
  • Light Up Your Shoes!
  • Connect Your World, an Introduction to Kundalini Connect

(complete details coming soon)

Systems Integration

All of our software components follow the Unix Philosophy, and are designed to be connected together — and integrated with external systems — in novel and interesting ways. This integration is all achieved using Kundalini Connect, our novel open-source framework and design methodology.

Additionally, we have experience performing systems integration projects world-wide, examples of which include:

  • Natrip, Silchar India
  • Hong Kong Jockey Club Heavy Duty Dynamometer
  • Giant Motors, Mexico
  • Tesla, Fremont, USA
  • Cierra
  • French Tow Dyno, Angers, France

(full details coming soon)

GitHub

Much of the software we develop is open source, and released via GitHub:

Interviews

Several interviews that I have either given or conducted can be watched here:

  • Rubin
  • Fortify Your Data
  • MyRadon

Podcast

A complete datadump of 10 years worth of legacy podcast materials can be found here. [coming soon]

Video Content

A complete datadump of 10 years worth of legacy VLOG footage can be found here. [coming soon]

Education

Additionally, I like to write educational blog posts about some of the open source software we write, utilize, or contribute to. Examples include:

Additional posts can be found here.

Become an early adopter

While our offerings are diverse, please keep in mind that the core technology offered by Kundalini Software is entirely novel, and is unlike anything else known on this planet. Ultimately, it is a technology of consciousness, allowing each individual the the ultimate “out of the box”, schema-less creative experience. (However, use of creation templates is obviously encouraged to facilitate co-creating with your friends!!)

In scientific terms, we have a novel mechanism to suppress the default mode network in the brain (similar to the way that psychedelic drugs work) except in a safe, non-overwhelming way… and on a full-time basis!

Our technology — which is being released a little bit at a time — allows each person to safely experience (“Big R”) Reality, and to experience what in yoga is called the “Maha Shakti”, the greatest of all creative energies: self-writing software running without any hardware at all!

Just remember: sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic! So when we say that Kundalini Software is “putting the magic back into software“, we are not kidding. Self Actualization is a thing, and we are here to bring the Lightning Path to Higher Consciousness to everybody!

So my advice is to please take a look around, keep an open mind, and consider adding Kundalini Software to your technology stack.
