At Home In The Elements
Self Inquiry Through the Chakras
According to the ancients, we suffer because we are tangled up with unexamined and false perceptions, thoughts, and feelings about ourselves and the world - that we are ignorant of our true nature and the true nature of the universe.
They developed a complex symbol system that maps out this journey of truth-discovery called the Chakra System.
Chakras, as practiced throughout the 9th and 12th centuries were simply concentration points in the body. There were many ways of meditating on these concentration points which would mine the chakra for its treasures - its inherent intelligence - it’s a transformational process. One way of meditating on these points was to contemplate the 5 elements that make up all perceivable objects in this universe.
This series of meditations attempts to bring back some of the ancient magic - to develop our subtle awareness of the elements of the chakra in the body, breath, and mind. And to trust in the practices passed down to us by the ancient sages and rishis for transcending suffering, realizing our potential and ultimately becoming free.
