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. Friday Night Lecture: 7:30-9:30pm An Evening with Anodea Judith. This lecture-only session will be an opportunity to learn from the world's preeminent authority on chakras and the energy of the subtle body. This evening can be purchased on its own, or as part of the full weekend. JOURNEY OF EMPOWERMENT: Saturday 10am-5:30pm 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 per- sonal 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. JOURNEY OF ENLIGHTENMENT: Sunday 10am-5:30pm 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.
