Chakras are vital centres in the energy body that receive and express life-force energy. What is this life force? Yogis call it prana or shakti. Chinese medicine calls it chi. Star Wars movies call it The Force. Anodea Judith calls this energy charge, and sees it as the missing element at the core of the healing process. "The chakras are the seven windows to the soul, that connect the inner world to the outer" - Anodea Judith
In the chakra portion of this training we use asana, meditation, pranayama, mantra, mudra, self inquiry & journalling to tap into our energetic world; "Healer, heal thyself".
