The seven chakra-based chapters:
Muladhara is located at the base of your spine. It is the first of the seven chakras, forming the foundation on which the other energy centers in your body function. Anytime you feel settled, calm and secure, this center is in balance. In English, it is called the Root Chakra. It governs your right to BE.
In your lower belly, below your navel and above your sexual organs and womb, your second chakra Svadisthana is found. Each time you feel motivated, passionate and graceful, this center is in balance. In English, it is called the Sacral Chakra. It manages your right to FEEL.
Manipura is your third chakra located at your core where your ribs emerge above your solar plexus. Anytime you feel proud, reliable and confident, this energy center is in healthy alignment. In English, it is called the Solar Plexus Chakra. It rules your right to DARE.
Located in your chest at the level of your heart and lungs, extending down your arms and hands, Anahata is your fourth chakra. Anytime you feel warmth and empathy for something or someone, this chakra is wide open. In English, it is called the Heart Chakra. It accentuates your right to LOVE.
Vishuddha is your fifth chakra, located at the base of your neck, then moving up the cylinder of your throat to your mouth, chin, and ears. Anytime you feel heard and able to communicate change and healing, Vishuddha is open. In English, it is called the Throat Chakra. It handles your ability to SPEAK.
At the bridge of your nose, between your eyebrows in the geometric center of your brain is your place of subtle perception. Here houses Ajna, the sixth chakra, also known as the Third Eye Chakra. Each time you feel in tune with your dreams, this energy center is aligned. It manages your right to SEE.
Three months after you were born, the soft spot on the top of your head adjusted and closed. At this place, Sahasrara, the seventh chakra is found. Any time you feel that everything is interconnected and that you are a part of the larger web of life, this chakra is open. In English, it is called the Crown Chakra. It channels your right to KNOW.

When we met in 2013, we were both enduring some of the toughest times in our lives. Through the course of our friendship, having a consistent yoga practice, while studying the psychological and energetic language of the chakras, helped us transform our deepest pains. We finally understood how to resource the answers from within.
In 2015, we realized we were ready to be of service and combine our desire to share our transformations in an utterly creative way. Together, we dreamed of creating something practical, yet beautiful - a contemporary chakra workbook to inspire others on their journey from pain to peace.
In 2017, the opportunity to realize this dream became a reality. Through our Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, we raised over $50,000 in thirty days to produce and print this book. The bookmaking process took over years of dedication as we chose to make every chapter a work of art, creating a visual frequency that speaks archetypically, spiritually, and imaginatively.
As we continue our mission to make a healing impact through the creativity of this book, we are honored and humbled to support you in experiencing devotional moments in the comfort of your home. We hope that these practices inspire you to live fully and love deeply.
