Meditation practices on 'Chakras and Kundalini'

Advanced meditation practice becomes easier and effective when one works deeply on energy body i.e. Pranamaya Kosha. Kundalini, chakras, and nadis are the prime and most essential components of the energy body.

For the inner journey, the study of energy anatomy and their effect on physical, mental, and spiritual levels along with meditation practices are needed to understand and experience the chakra system, kundalini, and nadis.

This meditation teacher training program includes many meditation practices on chakra and kundalini to balance, unblock, re-align, and activate them.

This course also covers some of the powerful meditation techniques on breathing, listening, looking, etc., from the Vigyan Bhairav Tantra, the most ancient text on meditation containing 112-meditation techniques given by Lord Shiva. The word 'Vigyana' means ‘consciousness’, 'Bhairava' means ‘the state which is beyond consciousness’, and 'Tantra' means ‘the method’. Hence Vigyan Bhairav Tantra means the method of going beyond consciousness.
