Chakra Symmetry Workshop

Harmony for You and Your Animals



Prerequisites:

None

Duration:

1 Day

Time:

10:00 am – 5:00 pm

 

Special offer:  Receive a FREE pendulum when you register and attend this Workshop.

 

The chakra system is an ancient way of viewing the body. It is divided into 7 zones with each area having energy that must flow freely. When the chakras are balanced, the whole body works in harmony and we feel elevated, energized and whole.

It is important for chakras (spinning wheels of energy) to be open in the body.  So in this workshop we will learn:

  • Where the chakras are located
  • What each chakra reflects on an emotional level
  • Several evaluative techniques to access whether the chakras are open or closed (muscle-testing, pendulum usage, use of our hands)
  • Exercises to help us use the evaluative tools with confidence
  • What is going on with the animal personally to understand the imbalance of the chakra
  • How to help the animal resolve the issue through telepathy as well as physical ways to bring the chakra back into balance

 

Within 6 hours you will have been able to balance your own animal’s chakras.  This is a hands-on workshop.  We will be doing this by working through photos of your animals.  We will start by working on my Golden Retriever, Spirit, as a demo dog so you can experience this right in the moment.

She will lead you through a meditation giving you the opportunity to reconnect with one of your animal companions who is in Spirit form.

Participants will make rich discoveries by looking at themselves through the eyes of their animals in this 2-day workshop.  No animals will attend nor will any animal communication skills be taught or required.  Instead you will talk about your animals' behavior and traits, uncovering the reasons behind their behavior, then you will be gently led to an understanding of the lessons your animals want you to learn.  By seeing yourself through the eyes of your animals, aspects of yourself that need to be nurtured and pampered will be revealed.  Most importantly, you will explore how to allow your animals to help you love yourself, as they do, unconditionally.
