About This Month's Event
evening will be devoted to healing, awakening, and celebrating our
bodies' energy centers (chakras). Together, we'll explore the ways
in which our chakra system affects and is effected by our experiences
with love, life, and spirit. Through meditation, visualization, movement,
creative play, music, breathing, personal exploration, and group interaction,
we'll deeply connect with our own chakras as well as each others'
honoring them as the energetic expressions of our root/sexual
ground, balance, power, love, truth, insight, and spiritual connection.
Join us for this fun, energetic, and playful evening. We look forward
to seeing you there!
What Are Chakras?
Chakra is a Sanskrit word meaning "wheel" or "vortex,"
and refers to specific energy centers of the body that receive and
process life-force energy, also known as Prana, Chi, or Qi. Like a
radio picks up external radio waves and transforms them into sound,
chakras receive life-force energy from the universe, metabolize it,
and then distribute it throughout the body all the way down to the
cellular level where it energizes, replenishes, and harmonizes
our cellular function and nourishes our consciousness.
are part of an interconnected system of energy centers in which each
one affects the energy of the rest. In other words, if one chakra
is tense, blocked, or out of balance, other chakras will be negatively
affected, and their vitality diminished. Alternatively, when one chakra
becomes healed, opened, and re-balanced, the resulting free flow of
energy promotes revitalization and healthy expansion of the other
