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 can show up 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 that an entire 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 energy.
Supplementary Information - Positive Chakra Affirmations
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. A PowerPoint presentation has been included after each lesson, so that you can visually review the main ideas. Supplementary information is included fo|r current and future reference.

"I'm so grateful to you, Catherine, for teaching the Chakra course. Your lessons eased me back into working with my Chakras. As you know, I had gotten so busy that I had shelved that part of my life. Fortunately, some things will not be denied. I started feeling out of balance. I couldn't write. I started feeling stuck. Thankfully, Goddess always gives us what we need. When I saw the Chakra class in the Wise Woman's course listing, I knew I had to take it. As I worked through the lessons, I began to see just how blocked I was. I am a writer, so I know how these kinds of blockages can hinder creativity. Unfortunately, I was so tied up in knots that I couldn't see where I was blocked. Thanks for getting me back on track, Catherine. I'm looking forward to taking more classes with you. Just let me know when. Peace, blessings, and much love to you." - Diana
"I have learned about the importance of recognizing and expressing emotions and feelings; they are essential to the balance of the lower chakras. I realize the importance of journal writing for myself, of breathing, crystal work and visualization to feel balanced." - Josée
