#var:page_name# cover


How does your life force, prana, or “charge” affect the energy body, the chakras, and your physical and emotional states? How do you balance your charge through day to day activities, and how do you learn to regulate it when you have too little or too much, to find a healthy balance?
Join award-winning author and global teacher, Anodea Judith, for a tour through the cutting edge of her work, with colorful slide show and illuminating discussion, based on her latest book, Charge and the Energy Body.


Learn how to guide the energy moving through your chakras and energy body through yoga and bioenergetic exercises with world-renowned author and chakra teacher, Anodea Judith.
Have a direct experience of your chakras and move through blocks to bring about balance in your energy body. Learn breathing exercises to generate energy and techniques for calming through a combination of yoga and bioenergetic exercises. This is not hand waving over your chakras, but a deep igniting of your sacred core, the central channel between heaven and earth through which the chakras are aligned.
In addition you will learn to:
• Ground your energy through your first chakra
• Open to pleasure in your second chakra
• Ignite your power in your third chakra
• Soften your heart in your fourth chakra
• Release blocked communication in your fifth chakra
• Open to vision in your sixth chakra
• And connect with divine charge in your seventh chakra.


Saturday Workshop:

10am-1pm and 3pm-6pm


An Exploration of the Lower Chakras. This workshop focuses on opening and stabilizing the lower three chakras of the seven layered Chakra System. Often misunderstood by ascension-oriented New Age philosophy, we ignore these chakras at our own peril. In doing so, we lose our connection to our bodies and the earth, to each other, and lose our power to make change. This work reclaims the essential foundation of the Chakra System by focusing on the elements of earth, water, and fire. Through chakra one, we will reclaim the sacred temple of the body, learning skills for grounding and rooting ourselves in the Earth. In chakra two, we will reclaim the mysteries of sexuality and emotions, as powerful agents of connection with ourselves and others. In chakra three, we will reclaim our personal power and will, fully supported by the foundation of the chakras beneath. Techniques used will include yoga and bioenergetic exercises, interactive lecture and guided meditations. Open to all levels of experience.

Sunday Workshop:



An Exploration of the Upper Chakras. After the challenging work of the lower chakras, the journey through the upper chakras opens us to love, light, and liberation. This workshop focuses on letting go of old patterns so that we can move forward into the future. In exploring chakra four, we use yoga stretches, breath, and meditation to expand our capacity for love and connection. In chakra five, we use sounding and chanting, to open our communication and creativity. In chakra six, we explore our inner vision and learn some basic psychic skills. And in chakra seven, we explore the mysteries of our own consciousness through connection to the divine within and without.
