Samadhi: The Coronation of the Path of Yoga

Samadhi: The Coronation of the Path of Yoga

Most likely you’ve heard this word before if you’ve spent any time practicing yoga or in a spiritual environment. But what exactly does it mean? Is it just a spaced-out trance or an altered state like you might have on some kind of drug trip? An exotic mystical vision achieved by great yogis in the Himalayas?
Not exactly: let’s look deeper and closer to home!

Christmas and Yoga

Christmas and Yoga

In the time of outer darkness, nearly every culture in the world has chosen to celebrate light.
Last week the Jewish people of the world lit the last Hanukah candles. Scandinavian girls adorned themselves with crowns of candles. Iranian families gathered to spend the solstice night eating, burning fires and reading poetry. Now we celebrate the birth of Christ, the light of Oneness Consciousness blossoming within a world of darkness.

Sahasrara: Into the Void

Sahasrara: Into the Void

The “thousand-petaled lotus” blossoming from the crown of the head represents the pinnacle of the journey through the chakra system, yet sahasrara itself is not a chakra.
If we look at the chakras in the traditional yogic system, each one represents a level of consciousness and a world in itself, each one a very particular flavor of reality.

Anahata Chakra: the Beauty of the Heart

Anahata Chakra: the Beauty of the Heart

Anahata holds the middle point in the chakra system, between the three lower chakras governing ordinary human life and the three upper chakras going into transcendence.
Related to the air element, it represents the beginning of true spiritual life and also the ending point, the place from which you live once you’ve already gone to the top of the mountain and seen the complete view, so to speak.

Come On Baby, Light My Fire: Awakening the Power of Manipura Chakra

Come On Baby, Light My Fire: Awakening the Power of Manipura Chakra

Behind any great accomplishment in this world, you’ll find the power of manipura. It’s the spark that gets you moving to embark on new plans and visions, and the courage to carry forward despite difficulties. “Where there’s a will there’s a way,” and manipura is the very manifestation of willpower.
This is true for spiritual accomplishments just as much as for success in business or whatever else.

Go with the Flow: Revealing the Beauty of Svadhisthana Chakra

Go with the Flow: Revealing the Beauty of Svadhisthana Chakra

Svadhisthana: that mysterious energetic center of sex and sensuality, emotions and creativity, known sometimes as the “black sheep of the chakra family” or even just the “secret chakra.”
What’s really the deal with the second chakra?
Svadhisthana is a portal to the infinite, to the sacred dimension of your being, just like all the other chakras. However, it has its own particularities and often requires a special approach.
Svadhisthana is the home of the Water element and everything associated with it. Sexuality, yes, but also emotionality, artistic expression, social connectivity and much more. It’s an intense energy, not always the easiest to deal with, and one that we’re all living closely with on a daily basis…

Muladhara Chakra: the Root Chakra in Life, Yoga and Sexuality

Muladhara Chakra: the Root Chakra in Life, Yoga and Sexuality

Stability. Vitality. Connection to nature, to the essential life force that enables our existence in this physical form.
That slowness and steadiness that wins the race.
These are the key qualities of the Earth element, and in a human being such as yourself, they’re expressed through the energy of muladhara chakra, the first chakra or “root chakra” located at the base of the spine.
Muladhara may be the “lowest” chakra but it’s extremely important, both in your daily life and yoga practice. Think of it as your base of support, or like your battery that powers your whole system…
