Wheels Of Life: A User's Guide to the Chakra System
by Anodea Judith
Insightful and practical description of the chakra system, with visualizations and practices to improve your life.
In my explorations of of various understandings and practices that I jokingly call TaoYoGregChi, discussions of chakras seem to come up often. People will say things like 'your crown chakra is closed' or 'this will open up your heart chakra'. Often I will nod, as I have a vague notion of what they are talking about, and try not to feel too transparent and oblivious. One day I came across Wheels of Life: A User's Guide to the Chakra System by Anodea Judith. The perfect guide for me and others looking for insight into the chakra system.
Anodea Judith does and excellent job of explaining the chakras and related ideas in ways that are accessible to the western mind. She also is clear about areas where there is room for various differences in teachings and practices related to the chakras.
I find the way the various discussions, meditations, and exercises for each chakra are related to specific aspects of our mind, body, and soul to be especially helpful. Working through the meditations and exercises on a regular basis would lead to and enriched and enlightened life.
