Anodea Judith’s Sacred Centers
Sacred Centers is a teaching organization founded by Anodea Judith in 1999. It quickly became a community of individuals (Co-Hearts) dedicated to deeper personal growth on all levels, and diverse cultural healing and evolution.
Our community forms organically from the workshop experience and the desire to keep that feeling alive long after the class has ended.
Students and graduates of the Sacred Centers Certification Program form Sacred Kin-doms in their own areas, where they conduct healing practices, teach classes and workshops, or hold special community events. So the time spent with us, whether through certification training, a live workshop, a virtual teleclass, or an intensive retreat, maintains itself effortlessly in our daily lives, staying with us and enhancing the sacred within.
In this way, Sacred Centers’ kin-doms become self-organizing centers for the coalescence of consciousness, illuminating the sacred web of life for the purpose of bringing together the imaginal cells of the emerging paradigm.
Anodea’s goal has always been to promote sacred knowledge for the transformation of individuals and culture. The name Sacred Centers refers to the divine center within each one of us, to the seven major energy centers known as chakras, and to the need to be centered in the sacredness of our daily lives.
The Vision of Sacred Centers is first and foremost to restore connection to the sacred. Too many of us have lost touch with the invaluable resources we hold within.
By re-learning to ground and center yourself, by returning to spiritual practices such as yoga, meditation, healing, ritual, trance, poetry, art, music, and dance, and by allowing ourselves to focus within, we can achieve deeper contact, understanding, and living. We can enjoy the benefits of a powerful reconnection with ourselves, each other, and the grand web of life.
At Sacred Centers, we feel that training yourself to dig deep into the within and tapping into the sacred space there, we inform all other actions in the mundane world, rendering them them more meaningful and effective in our everyday lives.
We do not endorse or condemn any particular religion. We believe that there are many paths to the sacred that are viable for different individuals and cultures. While the chakras come from the yoga tradition of India (see history) they are universal centers that exist within all of us, regardless of race, creed, color, gender, or any of the many isms that contribute to a sense of separation. Instead, this universal system can be embraced and practiced through any religious framework.
At a time when the world seems to be falling apart, we seek ways to come together, to find our common ground, our universal spirit, and contribute to an awakened global heart. The Sacred Centers can give you the tools you need, both physically and emotionally, as well as a liked-minded community of Co-Hearts to explore the vast possibilities through a myriad of workshops, teleclasses, retreats, and summits, reaping the many benefits that come from reconnecting and celebrating the sacred sources within.
