The Mystery of the Chakras
A self paced course studying and working with the Chakra System
One off course fee £95
The chakras are energy centres intended to be used as specific points of focus that hone the concentration of our scattered minds and allow us to move from external to internal and beyond.
They are part of the sūkṣma śarīra, the non-physical or subtle body that forms the energetic layer of our existence.
The chakras are also (arguably) one of the most exploited and misunderstood parts of yoga.
Perhaps the biggest myth being that there is one single chakra system - when in fact there are many.
Chakras are abstract concepts and thus can be experienced and described in many ways - we might find them expressed as padmas (lotuses), or wheels, as ādharas (foundations), or yonis (womb/root cause)… there may be 7 of them, or 5, or 10…they have been ascribed many attributes including colours, sounds, letters, deities, elements and seemingly complex mystical powers.
This course is targeted at seekers of personal and spiritual growth and aims to explore the chakra system both theoretically and practically and by the end of the course you will have...
gained a broad understanding of the history and philosophy of the chakra system
taken a dive into the philosophy of each chakra in turn according to the tantric text The Śiva Samhitā
studied the relationship between the Sanskrit alphabet and the chakras and practised writing and pronouncing the letters and sounds
experienced connection with the chakras practically through time spent practising pranayama, visualisation and meditation
The cost for the course is £95

The manual will outline and support what we you study as well as provide details of the practices - it offers fantastic resource for both practioners and teachers.

A note from me...
This course doesn’t aim to be an authority on the chakras …it is simply too vast a field of study for that to be possible and I most certainly don’t ‘know it all’.
Instead the intention is to loosen our grip on what we think we already know, what we think we should know and what we think we don’t know and open our minds to what may be…
Because ultimately every external yoga practice we partake in eventually becomes an inner process that leads us to the very same destination as the original sages who transmitted these ideas.
