JOURNEY OF EMPOWERMENT:
An Exploration of The Lower Chakras
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.
11th, 9:00 – 1:00 p.m.
An Exploration of The Upper Chakras
After the challenging work of the lower chakras, the journey through
the upper chakras opens us 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.
