Women’s Transformational Course
Healing Through the Chakra System
You are invited to a nine month course based on the work of Anodea Judith~ Eastern Body, Western Mind: Psychology and the Chakra System As a Path to the Self~ who brings a unique and powerful approach to the yoga-based Eastern chakra system, adapting it to the Western framework of Jungian psychology, body-centered therapy, childhood developmental theory, and metaphysics. In addition, we will bring in some Internal Family Systems (parts work), and Expressive Arts.
Throughout this course, we will meet on Sundays from 10-3pm on a monthly basis to focus on a each of the seven chakras in a group setting on ZOOM until it’s absolutely safe to meet in person. We will start with a description of each chakra's characteristics; then explore its particular childhood developmental patterns; purpose; identity; basic rights; excess and deficiency; issues; traumas and abuses; and how to heal and maintain balance. We will set up a sacred space for each chakra with its unique color, element, planet, crystal, and symbol. We will explore guided meditation, music, movement, tones, yoga poses, affirmations, and other healing practices for each chakra.
