Anahata Chakra (Unstruck Heart)
The heart chakra is at the center of the main chakras, and is the balancing point for the system. This energy center governs our interactions, as we either reach out to hold, or ward off the world around us. It is here that our sense of compassion, empathy, love and inner peace is balanced.
With the element of air, the heart chakra strives to bring balance between external stimuli and internal emotions. Through focus on this area, we have awareness of our ability to give and receive love, to accept ourselves as we are, as well as to accept others and all sorts of situations. Within this acceptance, we understand that everyone has their unique direction in life and embrace their uniqueness without judgment, but rather with loving kindness.
Join us this week, as we practice balancing the Anahata chakra through loving-kindness meditations, heart opening asanas and back bends. They are oh so delicious for the body, acting as natural mood-lifters!
