Journey Through the Chakras

With Anna Winkler and Madalina Blanton

November 5 - 7, 2021

Explore Your Energy Body

RETREAT BY INVITED PRESENTERS

Chakras—the 7 energy centers in your body—have been observed and studied since ancient times, and the wise ones before us have left a wealth of information to be explored. The more we understand how to monitor our energy body, the more we are able to open up to greater ease and peace in our personal lives. We invite you to begin this journey. The effects are immediate.

STAY SAFE DURING COVID-19: In the interest of safety, we are limiting enrollment in this program; please read our COVID-19 Precautions & Preparations to understand our additional strategies.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

In Sanskrit, the word “chakra” means “disk” or “wheel” and refers to the energy centers that run along your spine. These energy vortexes each correspond to specific nerve bundles and major organs—and to a unique level of development and consciousness. Each chakra metabolizes energy in unique ways. To function at their best, your chakras need to stay open, or balanced. If they get blocked, you may experience negative physical or emotional symptoms.

As we explore the role of each chakra—and its effect on your wellbeing—you will learn:
  • The Sanskrit translation
  • Subtle anatomy
  • Qualities of the chakras: location, element, sense, yantra, mantra
  • Psychological aspects of the chakra: too fast, too slow, or balanced
  • Methods for creating balance through chanting, breathing, and asana (yoga poses)
  • Methods for creating balance through food (including specific herbs), colors, meditation, and other means

We will offer practical information and various practices to help you maintain energetic cohesiveness. The more we understand how to monitor our energy body, the more we are able to open up to greater ease and peace in our personal lives.

The human body functions beautifully and precisely on many different layers of expression. Join us to discover how.
