Seven Windows to the Soul: A Chakra Weekend Workshop with Anodea Judith
September 14-16, 2018
This 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.
Charge and the Energy Body
Friday, September 14, 2018
6:30 pm to 9 pm
What is it that makes us feel truly alive and why do we fear it? Learn about the life force, as prana, chi, or charge, and how it energizes the chakras and everything else we do. Learn how important it is to keep our charge balanced for healthy functioning and how the patterns of charging and discharging become hardwired into our personality. From Anodea’s lifelong work with the chakras and therapeutic issues, this talk brings you a new way to look at Energy Psychology.
Seven Windows to the Soul: A Chakra Weekend Workshop
Saturday, September 15 to Sunday, September 16, 2018
9 am to 5 pm each day
Our weekend begins with an Exploration of the Lower Chakras. We will focus 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.
Our weekend continues with 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.
During the weekend you will have an experience of the seven sacred energy centers, or chakras, that spin at the core of your being, generating your life patterns and physical health. Combining yoga and bioenergetic exercises with guided meditations, partner work, breath, sound, art, and dynamic discussions of chakra principles, you’ll gain valuable tools for self-diagnosis and healing of common energetic blocks as well as a developmental framework for how those blocks came to be. The approach addresses both body and psyche, blending developmental psychology and Jungian concepts, as well as both Eastern and Western somatic studies. Past participants have called this workshop “empowering,” “enlightening,” and “transformational.”
Chakra-related topics include:
- First chakra: grounding and survival
- Second chakra: sexuality and emotions
- Third chakra: power and will
- Fourth chakra: love and relationship
- Fifth chakra: communication and creativity
- Sixth chakra: intuition and archetypes
- Seventh chakra: consciousness and spirit
