WHAT IS A CHAKRA? A CHAKRA, sanskrit for WHEEL, is a center of energy that exists in the subtle body. Think about feeling a lump in your throat, butterflies in your stomach, a headache, a gut instinct, or a broken heart. These specific sensations in the body are examples of excessive or deficient energy in your chakra centers. There are numerous chakras throughout our energy bodies, but the system you will be learning about in CHAKRA SHOTS incorporates the seven main chakra centers. These centers run from the base of the spine to the crown of the head.
What is a Chakra Shot? A CHAKRA SHOT is a non-alcoholic, Reiki infused elixir specifically blended to charge + restore your chakra centers. At the end of each gathering, we will take these MAGICAL shots to seal in our devotion and manifest our intentions.
CHAKRA SHOTS: PSYCHOLOGY OF THE CHAKRA SYSTEM is a sacred 7 week immersive study of the chakra system. This two-month commitment is designed for the curious-of-heart longing to deeply understand how specific chakra-based practices can enhance their meditation experience, as well as their yoga, reiki, or healing practice. Through this experience the chakra system will be made accessible to you as a practical tool for healing the self + planet.
GATHERINGS: Each week completely immerses you into the energy of one of these sacred centers. Meeting weekly on Friday nights from 8:30 - 10:00pm, September-November, the gatherings will consist of three basic areas:
1. meditation (guided/silent meditations, chanting, pranyama).
2. sharing (altar building, intention setting, processing, reflection, group activities).
3. ritual (use of crystals and herbs in ritual and meditation, cleansing rituals, chakra shots).
