The word chakra is Sanskrit for wheel or disk and signifies one of seven major energy centers in the body. Each of these centers correlates to major nerve ganglia branching forth from the spinal column. In addition the chakras also correlate to levels of consciousness, archetypal elements, developmental stages of life, colors, sounds, body functions, and much, much more. These energy centers, or chakras, have been studied by the yogic masters for millennia as the keys to gaining mastery of our minds, bodies and spirits. They control or influence how we feel, how we behave and how we relate to other people and to the universe. This is a deep and rich subject, offering a lifetime of learning and growth opportunities.
