Engaging with your breath and chakras
In this workshop, McKenna will begin by taking you through a guided meditation to help bring awareness to your surroundings, showing you how to cultivate mindfulness, while also focusing on your root, sacral and solar plexus chakras. The guided meditation will include some simple breathing techniques and will incorporate healing chanting from the sounds of Jonathan Goldman, director of the Sound Healers Association, based in Boulder, CO. We will also discuss some simple ways in which you can continue to engage your lower chakras such as eating certain types of nutritious foods, wearing/using crystals and burning various incense to remain connected with those areas of your body.
