The Chakras and the Difficult Emotions
A weekend of yoga, movement, meditation, creative visualisation and discussion.
Understanding and working with the chakras can be a valuable way of meeting with difficult emotions and recalcitrant habits. Through meditation we can penetrate these confusing energies and transmute them into wisdom. All energies are sacred. When the energies are purified the mind experiences freedom.
On this weekend we will be discussing the basic theory of the chakras, identifying the chakra patterns in our own lives and then meditating on the qualities of each chakra. As we bring their energies into conscious awareness, and remain present with them, we can find our pathway to freedom through them.
Dyana Wells has been a student of yoga, meditation and the spiritual journey, most of her life. She started practising yoga at 15 and began seriously training with the Auckland Yoga Academy over 20 years ago. In her early thirties she met her first teachers of Dharma: Tarchin Hearn, Namygal Rinpoche and Cecilie Kwiat, and under their guidance delved deeply into the mysteries of the mind and the nature of awareness.
Dyana has more recently studied Abhidhamma and Tibetan Tantra with Mark Webber. She has completed many long retreats and slips away into nature regularly to re-establish herself in the vast tapestry of life. She has worked deeply with the teachings of Tibetan Buddhism, the Theravadin traditions of South East Asia, and the spiritual manuals of the Yoga Sutras and Bhagavad Gita.
Her focus has always been to understand and apply these teachings in her daily life. What is the pathway to freedom and what gets in the way? How relevant is the philosophy of ancient scriptures in today’s world?
Dyana has three children, three grandchildren and lives at Orere Point, a small sea side community on the Firth of Thames.
She is the course director and a teacher on the 200-Hour and 500-Hour Integrated Yoga Teachers Training Programs at Kawai Purapura.
