Chakra Workshops Ahead! Consider signing up for these powerful afternoons!



We have three powerful workshops ahead on Saturday afternoons as we practice and discuss the chakras, seven energy centers up and down our spine.  These are important because blocked chakras can often lead to emotional or physical illness; whereas, opening them can result in a happier emotional state, more daily energy, and physical well-being.

The first workshop is on Saturday, October 13th, from 1:30 to 3:45 p.m.  This teaching and practicing time will incorporate movements and work on the lowest two chakras, Muladhara and Swadhistana.  



The Muladhara, or root chakra, has to do with issues of family, shelter, food, and basic needs for survival.  Changes in our lives, such as moving to a different job, the death of a loved one, a change of household status, or children growing up and moving away all affect this chakra.



The Sacral chakra, also known as the Swadhistana, concerns the "joy of life," creativity, enthusiasm, and basic emotional needs.  The adrenal glands are near and dear to this area of our body; thus, it affects our stress level.



Our second workshop in this series will be on Saturday, November 17, concerning the Manipura chakra and Anahata chakra.  These vital energizing areas affect our physical bodies in the area of digestion and heart/lung related areas.  However, they are all about our will center and compassion giving in life.


Our core, solar plexus, region is often referred to as our power center and governs personal power, fear, anxiety, and developing opinions in retrospect of others.  This is the area of the Manipura chakra and gender specific glands.

The heart chakra, Anahata, on the other hand is where the seat of our mercy mindedness for ourselves first and then others.  Mentally, it corresponds to our passion for our path in life and spiritually it affects our devotion quotient.  The gland most associated with the heart chakra is the thymus, relating to our immune system.


The third part of this series will be on Saturday, December 15, as we complete the chakras with our Vishudda, Ajna, and Sahasrara energy vortices.  These three chakras are so important as they are nearer our heads affecting our glandular system physically, our seat of communication in the throat, our minds, and our connection spiritually.

The throat chakra, also known as the Vishudda, governs our ability to speak up for ourselves, act independently, and affects our security system in the realm of confidence.  This is located near our thyroid gland, regulating the metabolism of your cells.


The sixth chakra is our intuitive energetic wheel.  This area is also near our pineal gland that affects the ability to sleep.  It helps us balance the lower chakras with the higher ones as we learn to trust ourselves and our own inner guidance.


The final chakral area is our crown of the head energy where we relate to spiritual areas in our lives.  It is close to our pituitary gland, affecting our hormonal secretion to our endocrine system.  Meditation and self-reflection are a big part of its work in our nervous system calming.


When everything is in balance, our lives seem to be happier, more free, and sing for joy!  Consider adding these workshops into your fall agenda.  $30 for each workshop; or $75 for all three if you purchase by October 12, 2012.
