A Daylong Retreat

Saturday, July 27, 10 am-4 pm, $60

Spend the day exploring the inner universe of the chakras. The chakras contain the energy patterns of our past lives and the karmic tendencies we carry into this life. Understanding them gives us the power to change our thoughts and attitudes, and to change our lives.

In this retreat, we will touch, in a focused and positive way, the sacred chakras within. We will go on a journey of inner discovery, first with philosophical understanding and then through direct practice and experience.

We will gain a clearer understanding about the components of the astral body, the chakras and kundalini. We will explore how one can undo some of the blockages within, especially in the heart center, and we will come to see how all these centers are interconnected with each other.

Through specific pranayamas, mudras and asanas, we will awaken and direct the energy harmoniously upward through the different chakras, focusing on their strengths and higher qualities. We will finish with a short meditation, deepening and integrating the wonderful effects of our practices.
