Through the Chakra’s:

An Eight Week Exploration of Your Chakra Energy Chakras are said to be invisible wheel like forces of energy permeating the physical body and extending beyond it. The most common system consists of seven focal points for the reception and transmission of energies and the free flow of that energy is vital to health and well being. When we tune into the flow of energy in our body we can create ease and flow in our lives.

Join us at Attune Coaching as we undertake our personal development and healing through the lens of the chakras. Each week for seven weeks we will focus on one chakra by increasing our understanding of the chakras and exploring the psychological meanings associated with each. We will be implementing techniques of sound energy and essential oils and you will receive a crystal a week reflecting that chakra. The eighth week will be a final healing session that focuses on all the chakras.

It is also a day to honor those who have defended freedom in the world and to set our sights toward peace. It is said that a new portal of awareness will open to us on this day. In honor of this, we invite you to join us as we take you through the beautiful process of creating an Andean Despacho, a gift of gratitude to the Universe and an opportunity to create peace, wellbeing, and harmony in our lives.
