Ongoing Registration - Join Anytime

heart and handsThis online class, which was revised and updated for 2018, will help you learn the location of your seven major chakras and their attributes, as well as the state of health of your own chakras and how they affect your emotional and physical health. You will learn how to sense your chakras, connect with them and techniques for clearing and aligning them, through quick exercises and assignments.

Lesson 1 is an introduction to the 7 chakras – where they are, what they look like, how we sense our chakras, and what they do. You will learn why a chakra may be out of alignment, and how this may affect you. There is a chakra chart and a resource given for a chakra test, so that you can yourself check the health of your chakras.

Lesson 2 covers the lower chakras – root, sacral and solar plexus, with examples of how holographically, these can show up in an energy session, and particular emphasis on the emotional attributes of the chakras.

Lesson 3 covers the heart chakra, and how to increase its energy. This is such an important chakra that an chakra totementire lesson is devoted to it. You will find numerous ways here to help balance your heart chakra, and resources for books, music, and websites to help you.

Lesson 4 relates to the throat, third eye and crown chakra, and examples of things that can affect them and how to increase their energy.

Each lesson has an assignment – it may be a meditation, reading, watching or listening to something on the internet, questions to answer or actions to take. Some are to be sent to the mentor, others are for your own personal learning. The last lesson includes an optional assignment to help you review what you have learned about the 7 chakras.

The lessons are presented with visual aids to emphasize the symbolism of the chakras, and help you remember. A PowerPoint presentation has been included after each lesson, so that you can visually review the main ideas.

Testimonials: "I'm so grateful to you, Catherine, for teaching the Chakra course. Your lessons eased me back into working with my Chakras. As you know, I had gotten so busy that I had shelved that part of my life. Fortunately, some things will not be denied. I started feeling out of balance. I couldn't write. I started feeling stuck. Thankfully, Goddess always gives us what we need. When I saw the Chakra class in the Wise Woman's course listing, I knew I had to take it. As I worked through the lessons, I began to see just how blocked I was. I am a writer, so I know how these kinds of blockages can hinder creativity. Unfortunately, I was so tied up in knots that I couldn't see where I was blocked. Thanks for getting me back on track, Catherine. I'm looking forward to taking more classes with you. Just let me know when. Peace, blessings, and much love to you. - Diana"

"I have learned about the importance of recognizing and expressing emotions and feelings; they are essential to the balance of the lower chakras. I realize the importance of journal writing for myself, of breathing, crystal work and visualization to feel balanced." - Josée

"I feel that I gained a lot of insight into chakras in general and my own in particular. I already feel that a shift has occurred within me. As I mentioned in one of my writings, much of this knowledge seems like it should be intuitive, however it has not been for me. The course helped bring this imbedded knowledge to the surface.,,I truly enjoyed this course and I believe I gained some helpful and lovely nuggets of information". - Julie

"Thank You, this class has helped me to be a wise woman again". - Patricia

"I also wanted to pass along some exciting news. After spending the last few days "immersed" in chakra work, I have noticed a shift. Prior to taking your class, I had been working on viewing aura's, beginning with my own. I was having a difficult time seeing mine. I would sometimes catch a glimpse of it for a split second and then I would lose sight of it. For the first time in a month or so, I gave it a try again today and the results were fantastic! I clearly saw my aura (a light yellow color) and it stayed present until I was ready for it to leave. It was swirly and ethereal, really cool! I can only believe that the shift occurred because I have begun clearing some of my chakras. Thank you!" - Julie
