Seven Windows to the Soul:
The Chakra System:
Bridging the Practical and the Mystical
A Training Intensive
This SEVEN WINDOWS TO THE SOUL weekend workshop gives you both experiential and intellectual tools for understanding the complete chakra system within your own body and psyche. Come prepared to both learn about the chakras and move your own energy into new places.
The Illuminated Chakras:
Friday Evening Lecture
Learn about the underlying energy currents that feed the chakras, what causes blockages, how to use the chakra system for diagnosis and treatment of energetic imbalances, and much more that make the chakras intelligible and useful as a map for life’s journey to consciousness. Evening concludes with a 30 minute audio-visual meditation through the chakras from the award-winning chakra video, The Illuminated Chakras: A Visionary Voyage into Your Inner World. (This evening or equivalent is a pre-requisite for the weekend workshop).
JOURNEY OF EMPOWERMENT:
An Exploration of the Lower Chakras.
The first day of this workshop focuses on opening and stabilizing the lower three chakras of the seven layered Chakra System. Often misunderstood by ascension-oriented New Age philosophy, we ignore these chakras at our own peril. In doing so, we lose our connection to our bodies and the earth, to each other, and lose our power to make change.
This work reclaims the essential foundation of the Chakra System by focusing on the elements of earth, water, and fire. Through chakra one, we will reclaim the sacred temple of the body, learning skills for grounding and rooting ourselves in the Earth. In chakra two, we will reclaim the mysteries of sexuality and emotions, as powerful agents of connection with ourselves and others. In chakra three, we will reclaim our personal power and will, fully supported by the foundation of the chakras beneath. Techniques used will include yoga and bioenergetic exercises, interactive lecture and guided meditations. Open to all levels of experience.
JOURNEY OF ENLIGHTENMENT:
An Exploration of the Upper Chakras
The second day of the workshop focuses on the upper chakras, through opening to love, light, and liberation. This workshop focuses on letting go of old patterns so that we can move forward into the future. In exploring chakra four, we use yoga stretches, breath, and meditation to expand our capacity for love and connection. In chakra five, we use sounding and chanting, to open our communication and creativity. In chakra six, we explore our inner vision and learn some basic psychic skills. And in chakra seven, we explore the mysteries of our own consciousness through connection to the divine within and without.
