The seven chakras are energy centers along the energetic spine for organizing the reception of life energy. Each one is associated with a body region, certain physical organs, emotions, central psychological issues and a source of power. For example, the heart chakra deals with issues of the heart, torso, circulation and immunity as well as issues of relationships, love, joy, grief and the power of love and emotions.
The chakras reflect the degree of health, inner love, worthiness, creativity and patterns of personal development. Blockages in these centers are associated with ill health and unresolved patterns of emotions, thoughts and behaviors. Self-assessment and removal of these blockages can lead to inner balance, strength, well-being, health and personal unfoldment.
The source of happiness and wellness is the connection to our deeper self, life and others. Separation creates suffering. A time proven method in Eastern cultures for enhancing connection, self unfoldment s the cultivation of awareness of our energy body and the enhancement of the flow of this life force. Our energy body has a structure, and the microcosmic pathways and the Chakras are two essential aspects of that organization where body, mind, emotions and spirit meet. Going deeper within our energy system leads us to higher states of awareness and to resources of renewal, love, inner strength, vitality, creativity and freedom as well as facilitating the prevention of illness and the dissolution of limiting patterns of emotions, thoughts and behaviors.
This workshop presents and integrated, experiential and skill based approach combining Eastern and Western methods. Within a safe and healing space where we honor ourselves and can face personal obstacles, we will penetrate deeper into our being to encourage personal unfoldment by using meditation, awareness, breath, emotion, thought, healing postures, visualization, touch, movement (Qigong, yoga and intrinsic motion) and group process.
