Strengthen Your Container with the <i>Chakras</i>: Re-Membering Wholeness

About This Event

Discover the power of your sacred energetic centers, the chakras, to help you move through life-altering, painful events. Explore your chakras with guided meditations, visualizations, journaling, art, movement, and sharing with like-minded spiritual seekers. This program is for people who are facing challenges of all kinds including grief, trauma, and loss.

Designed to support you on your personal journey toward a natural state of wholeness, this retreat will assist you in exploring the deep wisdom held in your energetic body.

In this program, you will:

Learn about your chakra system and how each energy center is impacted by traumatic events

Practice techniques to strengthen and maintain balance of your energy body

Engage in ritual to acknowledge divinity and strengthen conscious connection with your chakras

The ultimate teaching of Yoga is that you are whole and perfect as you are, in pain, joy, peace, and grief. Our chakra system works to support that realization and helps us maintain balance through even the most chaotic of times.

Testimonials

Karla is a delightful, compassionate, caring instructor and I look forward to recommending her session to others. — Ebony

I’ve had a difficult time with grief. This program met my expectations and helped me to cope better. — Bonnie Shaw

Karla has been a Godsend. She is a lovely compassionate person and a bereaved parent herself. I've come to realize I had mild PTSD for months after my son died. Flashbacks, anxiety, nervousness. I kept reliving moments of his last months. It's only now that I am remembering happier moments of his life before cancer. Karla helped me identify the trauma and how to lessen it. — Marsha
