~ Chakra Basics ~
(description of online course with mentor Catherine Bastedo)

This class will help you learn the location of your seven major chakras and their attributes, as well as the state of health of your own chakras and how they affect your emotional and physical health. You will learn how to sense your chakras, connect with them and techniques for clearing them, through quick exercises and assignments. Since this is a “Basics” class, it emphasizes the attributes of the chakras, and ideas for clearing them and aligning them, without going into specialized therapies such as crystals or aromatherapy.

Lesson 1 is an introduction to the 7 chakras – where they are, what they look like, how we sense our chakras, and what they do. You will learn why a chakra may be out of alignment, and how this may affect you. There is a chakra chart and a resource given for a chakra test, so that you can yourself check the health of your chakras.

Lesson 2 covers the lower chakras – root, sacral and solar plexus, with examples of how holographically, these show up to me in an energy session, and particular emphasis on the emotional attributes of the chakras.

Lesson 3 covers the heart chakra, and how to increase its energy. This is such an important chakra, one lesson is devoted to it. You will find numerous ways here to help balance your heart chakra, and resources for books, music, and websites to help you.

Lesson 4 relates to the throat, third eye and crown chakra, and examples of things that can affect them and how to increase their enregy.

Each lesson has an assignment – it may be a meditation, reading, watching or listening to something on the internet, questions to answer or actions to take. Some are to be sent to the mentor, others are for your own personal learning. The last lesson includes an optional assignment to help you review what you have learned about the 7 chakras.

The lessons are presented with visual aids to emphasize the symbolism of the chakras, and help you remember.
