Joyful Energy: Exploring Chakra & Crystal Energy   NEW!
Chakra is a Sanskrit word meaning wheel, or vortex, and it refers to each of the seven body-based and five spiritual-based energy centers that comprise our consciousness, our energy system. The chakras are not physical; however, they interact and represent the relationship between the parts of our bodies and our consciousness. In this workshop you’ll learn about the Chakra system with a focus on the crystals that provide support to each part of the system. We’ll discuss the link between Chakras and auras and how these energy centers, or chi, relate to the universe. Discover a new way to find joyful energy in your life!
