Praxis Latest Published Article: Decoding Chakras – A Contemporary Challenge to Ancient Thinking

When you see or hear the word ‘chakra‘ – what immediately comes into your awareness?

Such words as energy, chakras, auras and subtle bodies have become relatively commonplace within our everyday vocabularies and conversations. An ever-growing population want to know about energy and spirituality. Those yearning for something more than a routine daily existence have reached ‘critical mass’- they are prompted by a desire for inner fulfillment, for a reconnection with a sense of the sacred in life.

It is no wonder that the Chakra system appeals to Western ‘seekers after truth‘. Yet this raises the intriguing question – How can this ancient Chakric wisdom (from an Eastern culture) ‘make sense‘ and be appropriate to those living a modern Western-centric life?

My aim for this article is to invite you to engage with this scrutiny through a contemporary exploration of the ancient wisdom of Chakras.

I will offer two paradoxes by which to challenge established thinking. . .

Praxis Summer Yoga Class Theme: The Planet Suite

Over the last 6 weeks, Praxis Yoga students have been exploring their world through the template of the Solar System – 5 planets as known from the Old World, plus the Sun as a yellow dwarf star.

As well as touching base with each planet’s physical qualities, we have been consciously working with their metaphysical qualities. Why are they important? Because they are assumed to influence both collective and personal consciousness – therefore our own lives. This term’s classes were aimed at raising  conscious awareness, to see how we can tap into the energy of the planets for our own development and evolution.
