What really are the chakras? Somatic focal points, energy centers, Cosmological Maps, or all three?
In the worlds of yoga, esoteric spirituality, and New Age religion, interest in the concept of the chakras is massive and growing all the time. What is often lacking is a thorough investigation into the original nature and function of the chakras in their tradition of origin, Tantrik Yoga, by a scholar-practitioner fluent in the Sanskrit language.
Embodied Philosophy is proud to present an online course that fills that need, giving you access to both primary sources in readable translations and a scholar who can answer all your questions.
