Rolf Sovik – Meditation on the Chakras

Chakras, the centers of subtle energy along the spinal column, play a dynamic role in the practice of meditation. They govern regions of human anatomy, sectioning the body into distinct organ systems and anatomical functions. They embody themes of human spiritual development, ranging from primitive human drives to trustful surrender to God. They symbolize various forces of divinity, manifesting in mantric sounds and yantric geometrics. And they act as reference points in meditation practice—centers of concentration and purification. Cultivating sensitivity to these energy centers enables you to explore new dimensions of inner life.
