Saturday, June 11, 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. CDT 


secrets of the chakras with ray grasse 6. 1 22What are the chakras, and how do they relate to our everyday lives? This workshop will present a unique perspective on the subtle energy centers of our bodies based on insights and teachings drawn from the oral traditions of esoteric yoga. In addition to a discussion of simple techniques for balancing chakric energies, we’ll be taking an in-depth look at the three primary currents along the spine associated with the chakras:

        The Ida, which lies to the left of the spine
        The Pingala, which is to the right side of the spine, mirroring the ida
        The Sushumna, which runs along the spinal cord in the center, through the seven chakras

We will practice some basic exercises for becoming more aware of the chakric levels and how these relate to our various psychological and spiritual states of awareness.

We’ll also take a look at the intricate way one's horoscope can shed important light on the patterns of one’s personal chakra system. 


Registration includes on-demand access to a recording of the workshop, which can be viewed for two weeks following the date it was presented.
