Ignite Your Power
A 7 Week Chakra Intensive beginning October 29th
Why the Chakras? Why Now? Why You?
There are many different systems in the body, some are physical, and some are energetic. The chakras are an energetic system that we can use to heal, enliven, store and express the power of the body, mind and spirit. These spinning wheels running the length of our spines from root to crown radiate and turn when balanced, or dim and stagnate when imbalanced. Chakras change, as they tell the story of our energetic body, which also changes. The stories that they hold are impactful, whether known and unknown. Some speak of our innate power and some of our pain.
The time has come to acknowledge the power of these centers within you, to listen to their stories, your stories.
If you are unfamiliar with the chakras, this intensive will teach you about them, in theory and through experience. If you are a long time practitioner, this intensive will put you back in touch with them. For all of us this intensive will give us tools and support as you step into our power. Each chakra has a unique power and so do you.
These are unique times that we are living in. The tools and distractions are plentiful, both. Though we do not know what is ahead, with specificity, we do know that we will need our energy to accomplish the task. We can find a path of power merged with compassion for ourselves and others using this bridge between heaven and earth that you will come to know or more deeply know as the chakras.
The wheels of energy within and around our bodies are many. But we have 7 major chakra that we will address in this 7 week intensive. We will, if you choose to come along, have 7 weeks to re-identify with each major chakra in many different ways and access the power that is within us for the good of all.
What You Can Expect
Each Sunday, for an hour, we will journey through a chakra using gentle yoga movement and concluding with a Yoga Nidra practice to integrate the medicine of that chakra. That will get us started. Throughout the week within our shared group, accessed through your student portal on this website, I will share your chakra resources for your individual exploration. What's more, each week, during our group coaching call on Wednesday night, we will share our discoveries, successes and struggles and have an experience that will help us journey deeper together into the chakra of focus for that week. And, when you are ready to jump in, you will have an opportunity to go deeper with me, 1on1, within the Dream Sessions course. It's time to Ignite your Power.
**All classes will be offered online and recorded for your convenience.
