We all know what it’s like to have a “charge” about something. It’s a feeling of excitement, fear, sexual arousal, or irritation. But what we don’t currently know is how to use charge for the behaviors we want to create. Charge is a word for the basic life force running through us. This force is crucial if we are to meet the challenges of difficult situations, heal past wounds and traumas, and manage the stress of modern life. Even more, it is essential for understanding how to master your own life force and become all you can be. This book makes an important contribution to the growing field of Energy Medicine, by looking at charge as the interface between mind and body, and the missing ingredient in Mind-Body healing. It brings the reader into a deep intimacy with their own life force, as well as an understanding of how charge runs their relationships, their children, their clients, and patients. It examines how we can become “overcharged” or “undercharged” and how to bring about balance through practices of charging and discharging. Each chapter gives simple exercises to put these principles into practice. World-renowned teacher, somatic therapist, best-selling author, and advanced yoga teacher, Anodea Judith, Ph.D., addresses all this and more in her groundbreaking book on mastering the life force. Taken from her decades of teaching on the subject and her doctoral work in Mind-Body medicine, this book contributes something entirely new to the literature on healing self and others.
Chakras are energy centers within the body, centers of organization that receive, assimilate, and transmit life force energy. Our physical, mental and emotional states depend on the state of each of these energy points. In this book, world expert on chakras and bestselling author Anodea Judith explores the chakra system as a whole and teaches you how to work with it to heal the most important aspects of your life. She provides comprehensive and clear information to enable you to takeyour well-being into your own hands by repairing any imbalances in your energetic body. This book explores: The meaning, function, and purpose of each chakra Childhood developmental stage in which that chakra is primarily programmed and how this affects our emotional and physical states later in life Excess, deficiency, and balanced states of the chakras States of consciousness and personal identities relating to the chakras (physical, emotional, egoic, social, creative, archetypal, universal) The 4 energetic currents dependent on the chakras: liberation and manifestation, reception and expression The archetypal element related to each chakra (earth, water, fire, air, sound, light, and thought) Techniques for working with your chakras (yoga, breathing, meditating, chanting, colors, psychological history, etc.) and much more!
Revised edition of the groundbreaking New Age book that seamlessly merges Western psychology and science with spirituality, creating a compelling interpretation of the Eastern chakra system and its relevance for Westerners today. In Eastern Body, Western Mind, chakra authority Anodea Judith brought a fresh approach to the yoga-based Eastern chakra system, adapting it to the Western framework of Jungian psychology, somatic therapy, childhood developmental theory, and metaphysics and applying the chakra system to important modern social realities and issues such as addiction, codependence, family dynamics, sexuality, and personal empowerment. Arranged schematically, the book uses the inherent structure of the chakra system as a map upon which to chart our Western understanding of individual development. Each chapter focuses on a single chakra, starting with a description of its characteristics and then exploring its particular childhood developmental patterns, traumas and abuses, and how to heal and maintain balance.
Explaining "chakra" yoga, a method of tuning into one's emotional body and releasing negative energy or issues, this book takes readers to a deeper level of regular yoga practice by showing how to connect with emotions and feelings as they perform physical postures.

Learn the five steps of land to water yoga: Standing and walking Kneeling and crawling Sitting Front lying Side lying and back floating While spending two months meditating and practicing yoga in silence at Sri Aurobindo’s first ashram in Baroda India, Sondra Fraleigh received her first inspirations about yoga based upon infant movement development and somatic principles. She consciously utilized this element in her creative use of yoga—bridging it with somatic movement education and intrinsic dancing. This unique new form of yoga—Land to Water Yoga—maintains yoga’s original intent of spiritual healing and awareness and offers a way to deepen clear seeing and a calm mind, urging one past his or her limited ego. It is based on five stages of infant development and the methods of Shin Somatics® Moving Way. Its progression moves backward from the most complex movement in terms of balance to the least: from walking to floating (from land to water), providing the opportunity to retrace our personal human development back to its watery soma source. Progressing through these five primary stages may elicit surprising infant and childhood memories, which can heal trauma when one lets go of buried feelings. Peeling away social constructions via this innovative form of yoga, one can learn through curiosity and build skill with ease.
