Chakras, Mythology and Astrological Symbolism
with Johnny Barnett
“The body is a pattern, it is an example of all the forces of the universe itself.”
(Edgar Cayce Reading 2153-6)
An empowering and insightful exploration of what it means to be human and how we are designed to live.
This explorative workshop takes us through the 2 main energetic paths- up from the Earth and entering the body at the Root Chakra, and down from the Cosmos, entering the body through the Crown Chakra. As we touch on each Chakra, astrological symbolism is used to help broaden our understanding – much in the way Joseph Campbell, Carl Jung, Shakespeare, the Ancient Greeks, Hollywood and many others have used symbolic language to convey universal truths. When we consider the Planets and the Chakras in this light we come to understand the personal implications of the ancient saying – “As without, so within”. The combined imagery of the 7 Chakras/Planets creates a blueprint for the Human experience and your astrological chart becomes the map of your own personal energy system. Wisdom from modern authors such as Eckhart Tolle (The Power of Now) and Don Miguel Ruiz (The 4 Agreements) round out our understanding and help us apply these universal archetypes to a 21st Century lifestyle.
Johnny has been a practicing Astrologer for over 25 years. His unique astrological perspective is based upon the relationship between the 7 planets of classical astrology and the 7 Chakras - adding greater understanding as to the nature of the Human experience. He draws upon his complementary studies in symbolism, mythology, Jungian psychology, and physics, as well as his experiences as a father, husband, entrepreneur, community activist and musician to inform his work.
