CHAKRA WISDOM: Becoming Unblocked
prana, also called chi, is the life force energy of our human existence and awareness. prana flows in specific patterns within the body to accomplish specific functions that empower our physical, mental and emotional experiences. Yogi’s discovered a very long time ago that we each have the ability to work with and even manipulate the channels of prana in order to manifest certain outcomes. This is accomplished through knowledge and awareness of the chakra, the energy centers of our body. A chakra is a vortex, or movement of energy. There are seven primary and thousands of secondary chakra in the human body. Each is invisible to the eye but an important aspect of our experience of being.
Working with, and aligning, the flow of energy to be in tune with our heart’s calling is part of the science of chakra theory. The optimal use and awareness of chakra and prana brings about a high level of wisdom, greater happiness and a reduction in suffering.
This workshop is ideal for the person wishing to feel more alive physically, mentally and emotionally, and more connected spiritually.
During this weekend, we will trace the path and pertinence of the chakra system and discover:
- what these seven energetic systems are and their qualities
- where they are located and what they influence in the body and mind
- how to recognize balances and imbalances
- practices and lifestyle adjustments for welcoming a more integrated and healthier experience of the chakra
The program will include:
- daily yoga practice
- teaching tips (for spiritual and yoga teachers)
- subtle energy anatomy and the physical, emotional, mental, intellectual correlate
This workshop is appropriate for all levels of experience. It includes an introductory discussion and staged teachings so each participant can take this wisdom to a level appropriate for them at this time.
This workshop will provide a clear, cohesive overview of the chakra, what they are and what they are not, how to balance and activate them, and how to work with them in order to empower life, love and happiness in our being.
