Up and Out: 7 Chakras Writing Workshop Series (NYC)

cmojica2010-07-04 19:52:45 +0000 #1
Chakra is a Sanskrit term meaning circle or wheel. The body has spinning energy centers that look like spinning wheels and are called, Chakras. Emotional and mental traumas often affect the vibration of the chakras, causing the person to feel distressed and unbalanced. To heal is to bring the chakras into alignment and balance. The chakras are thought to vitalize the physical body and to be associated with interactions of both a physical and mental nature.

The aim of the workshops is to examine each chakra as they relate to everyday human interaction through meditation, reflection and writing. By reflecting on each chakra, the process of self-healing and alignment can be facilitated on a personal level for each person. The Up and Out Writing Series is an 8-week series of writing and meditation workshops that focus on a chakra per week.

Signing up prior to the writing workshops is required. The 8-week writing workshop is $120 for each person, which includes supplies used for the workshops. Class size is limited to 20 people so sign up as soon as possible as to not miss these workshops.

Time: 7:30pm to 9:30pm.

Location: 41 Union Square West (corner of 17th Street)
