Course Overview

1 day experiential workshop exploring the history, evolution and variations of the chakra systems.  We’ll do this through mantra, vibration, meditations and visualisations whilst walking through history and having some reflective discussions alone the way.  We will explore the history of the chakra system and it’s journey;

  • From ancient India with Sanskrit and traditional Bija (different to today)
  • Through the middle ages and it’s deeper alignment with yoga practices
  • Victorian England, the Theosophy movement and first English translations
  • The birth of western spirituality and the drawing in of other elements

All multifaceted, and all different, all valid and wonderful. Together we’ll explore some of the many facets, the different colour systems from history e.g. in the Śiva-saṃhitā the heart cakra is red and in the Sat-cakra-nirūpana the naval is black-blue, as well as the different number systems, how different elements have been brought in over the centuries and explore what, if anything that changes for us.

  • Learn and chant mantras from the ancient texts
  • Learning the Bija according to ancient traditions (different from modern tradition)
  • Bramhari through the chakras
  • Visualisation on the different colour systems
  • Meditation on the yogic nadi systems
