“Wheels of Life is the most significant and influential book on the chakras ever written.”
— John Friend, founder of Anusara Yoga
In Eastern Body, Western Mind, chakra authority Anodea Judith brought a fresh approach to the yoga-based Eastern chakra system, adapting it to the Western framework of Jungian psychology, somatic therapy, childhood developmental theory, and metaphysics and applying the chakra system to important modern social realities and issues such as addiction, codependence, family dynamics, sexuality, and personal empowerment.
Arranged schematically, the book uses the inherent structure of the chakra system as a map upon which to chart our Western understanding of individual development. Each chapter focuses on a single chakra, starting with a description of its characteristics and then exploring its particular childhood developmental patterns, traumas and abuses, and how to heal and maintain balance.
In this long-awaited book by acclaimed chakra expert Anodea Judith, you will learn how to use yoga’s principles and practices to awaken the subtle body of energy and connect with your highest source. Using seven vital keys to unlock your inner temple, you will be guided through practices that open and activate each chakra through postures, bioenergetic exercises, breathing practices, mantras, guided meditation, and yoga philosophy. With beautiful step-by-step photographs for each of the poses, along with guidelines for deeper alignment and activation of the energy body, this book is a valuable resource for teachers and students alike.
“Anodea Judith’s Chakra Yoga is a wonderful companion to her decades of books and teachings. Providing exploration through yogic methods for liberating, transforming, and balancing our energetic body and life, it is a gift to the world.”—Shiva Rea, founder of Prana Vinyasa and author of Tending the Heart Fire
“For decades, I have been waiting, wishing, longing for such a book as Anodea Judith’s Chakra Yoga. As always with Anodea, the book is exquisitely presented, deep, practical, inspiring, easy to follow, contemporary. A MUST HAVE. Enjoy the ride!”—Margot Anand, author of The Art of Everyday Ecstasy
Charge is a word for the basic life force running through us. This force is crucial if we are to meet the challenges of difficult situations, heal past wounds and traumas, and manage the stress of modern life. Even more, it is essential for understanding how to master your own life force and become all you can be.
This book makes an important contribution to the growing field of Energy Medicine, by looking at charge as the interface between mind and body, and the missing ingredient in Mind-Body healing. It brings the reader into a deep intimacy with their own life force, as well as an understanding of how charge runs their relationships, their children, their clients, and patients. It examines how we can become “overcharged” or “undercharged” and how to bring about balance through practices of charging and discharging. Each chapter gives simple exercises to put these principles into practice.
World-renowned teacher, somatic therapist, best-selling author, and advanced yoga teacher, Anodea Judith, Ph.D., addresses all this and more in her groundbreaking book on mastering the life force. Taken from her decades of teaching on the subject and her doctoral work in Mind-Body medicine, this book contributes something entirely new to the literature on healing self and others.
This book explores:
• The meaning, function, and purpose of each chakra
• Childhood developmental stage in which that chakra is primarily programmed and how this affects our emotional and physical states later in life
• Excess, deficiency, and balanced states of the chakras
• States of consciousness and personal identities relating to the chakras (physical, emotional, egoic, social, creative, archetypal, universal)
• The 4 energetic currents dependent on the chakras: liberation and manifestation, reception and expression
• The archetypal element related to each chakra (earth, water, fire, air, sound, light, and thought)
• Techniques for working with your chakras (yoga, breathing, meditating, chanting, colors, psychological history, etc.)
…and much more!
