In this groundbreaking webinar series, Christopher will unpack the meaning and significance of the ‘Unstruck’ (Anāhata) Chakra and reveal its forgotten role in daily yoga practice.
The name ‘Anāhata’ (pronounced ‘un-aah-hut-uh’) refers to the liberating sonic power (shakti) of the chakra seed mantras when engaged at the center of the heart chakra. Students will learn how the central Tantric practice known as the ‘articulation’ technique (ucchāra) was engaged at the Heart center – specifically how each of the five elemental seed mantras was engaged with the three-part prāṇāyāma innovated by the Tantrics.
This practice, since lost to us, forms the heart of Christopher’s doctoral work; its presentation in this webinar is based on dozens of un-published Tantric texts.
We will explore five stunning depictions of the Anāhata Chakra, several of which will be revealed for first time since the Indian subtle body was first discovered by the West. All of these derive from Matriarchal Chakra systems previously unknown to the modern west.
Anāhata Chakra Invocation.
