It’s hard to thrive in a place when only one one of our facets (i.e. our intellect in academia) is privileged. The chakra system from Eastern Philosophy is a theory of the self that posits 7 major energies that make up each person (symbolically located along the spine from the gut to the heart to the head) and argues that a healthy expression of all 7 chakras in harmony with each other is what leads to liberation. This workshop is an introduction to the 7 chakras, and it opens the yearlong series focusing on strategies to waken each chakra one by one for a fulfilling professional life.
