As we participate in spiritual practices and inner creative work, kundalini energy may rise up the chakras located in the astral spine and awaken us spiritually. When this happens in a contained environment, it slowly merges the north and south poles of our being (feminine and masculine, negative and positive) and creates a greater wholeness in our well-being. In this presentation , we will focus on the meaning of kundalini, its images in creative expressions as in sandplay, and how to use our understanding of kundalini for personal change. We will then experience what kundalini may feel like through guided meditation and sound. More details.
Experiencing the Chakras
The theory of the chakras comes from the Sanskrit tradition of India and the ancient science of kundalini yoga. When participating in meditation, yoga, and other forms of spiritual practices, kundalini often rises up the astral spine and awakens us spiritually. In this workshop, we will explore the psychological, spiritual, and emotional characteristics of each of the seven chakras that are located along the astral spine as we view images of their expressions in sandplay. Along with this, we will experience their unique energy forms through guided meditations and will discuss the symptoms of and reasons behind spiritual emergencies.S More details.
