Insights from our Healing through Chakras, Meditation and Herbs Workshop at Great Times Club

Health has always been a chief concern for all. The recent years have seen a shift in mass perception: adopting a healthy lifestyle has become absolute and it’s a no brainer that yoga and meditation are playing a key role in it.

Indian herbs are something that can be found in every household kitchen or garden. With their enormous health benefits, it was only fascinating to know how these herbs could be used to promote one’s wellbeing. A huge crowd of enthusiastic elders turned up for the workshop on healing through yoga, meditation and herbs, conducted by renowned Naturopath and Yogacharya Dr. Seema Sood, who herself has been practicing yoga for almost 40 years now.

Naturopathy 1She talked about how the way to be a healthy involves union of two things: physical exercises and the balance of inner energies. There are two types of body: physical body and subtle or energy body. The pursuit of being a healthy individual involves physical exercises and balance of the inner energies. There are seven energy channels known as chakras in our subtle body. These are:

  • Mooldhara: root chakra; center of innocence
  • Swadisthan: pelvic chakra; center of creativity
  • Nabhi: navel chakra; center of evolution
  • Anahat: heart chakra; center of love
  • Vishuddhi: throat chakra; center of collectivity
  • Agnya: third eye chakra; center of forgiveness
  • Sahasrara: crown chakra; center of integration

It is crucial for an individual to maintain this balance, which can otherwise lead to lot of the social and psychological issues later. Some of the thoughts she shared with audience were:

  • Innocence and wisdom is the base of chakras
  • People expend too much energy and time worrying over the past or being anxious of the future
  • Essence of being detached; moving beyond the self
  • Importance of having clear intentions
  • Variance in the energies disturbs homeostasis (equilibrium)
  • Harnessing and channelizing the inner energies correctly
  • Being mindful; completely in the present moment
  • Being calm, patient and motivated to pursue inner peace
  • Different techniques of using the herbs to extract maximum benefits

The elders were curious and sought out answers to their queries, engaged in discussions on personal experiences and got clarity on myths around health issues. The session ended on a relaxing and peaceful note, with a small session on meditation.
