What more should I tell Thee? In short, there is nothing in this world like mudras for giving quick success along the spiritual path.” – Gheranda Samhita, Vr 100
Mudras are gestures that can be made with the hand, face or body, that evoke certain energetic qualities that promote physiological, psychological and/or spiritual wellbeing. The Sanskrit word mudra comes from the root “mud”, meaning delight or pleasure, and “rati”, which means to bring forth.
The mudras explored in this workshop are hand gestures specifically chosen to “bring forth” the optimal functioning of our Chakra system. Each Chakra will be paired with a mudra chosen specifically to enhance its particular qualities, and then, while in seated meditation we will hold the gesture, paying close attention to any and all energetic shifts in our being. The class will end with a guided meditation to integrate all the chakras.
Please bring a journal and a pen to note your insights for each Chakra.
