Meditation / Sharing Circle (6 weeks, 7/14 to 8/18)
7:00 – 8:00pm in Marge Brown Room – contact Gill Lee
Using guided meditations, we will explore, over 6 weeks, how to become aware of the seven main chakras within our own energy networks. The bodies energy channels have been likened to rivers, who’s flow may become blocked, drained and empty, or full and nourishing. Where many ‘rivers run together’ confluence occurs, and these are the sites of the chakras. Many believe that focusing on the chakras is thought to vitalize the physical body and to be associated with interactions of a physical, emotional and mental nature. Interestingly, every religion offers an ‘exoteric and an esoteric’ aspect. The exoteric can be considered the dogma and creed that show the outer form of religious practice. Correspondingly, the Esoteric face offers the spiritual experience. The esoteric teachings, including working with the healing energies of the chakras, are remarkably universal. Chakras are contemplated with humility and respect, as they represent the ‘confluence of rivers’ within our total being, and thus points into our spiritual awakening.
