Understanding the Sacral Chakra. You have the right to feel, you have the right to pleasure!
When someone has a balanced sacral chakra, their capacity for pleasure and sexual satisfaction is realized, sexuality is balanced, and they are comfortable with intimacy. Their ability to “go with the flow”, move with grace, to adapt to change, and to set healthy boundaries is evident.
Many of us may have experienced traumas throughout our life that may have caused an imbalance within our sacral chakra energy. Sexual, emotional, and physical abuse are traumas that can block the vital life force energy from flowing freely through this chakra point. Inherited sexuality issues from parents and past generations also contribute to stagnant energy of the sacral chakra.
Unbalanced energy in the sacral chakra can range from deficiencies such as rigidity in the body, fear of change, fear of sex, emotional numbness, lack of desire, and poor social skills; to excess such as sexual acting out, sex addition, pleasure addiction, emotional dependency, obsessive attachment, and excessively strong emotions. These IMBALANCES, STEM FROM GUILT, which often times is inherited from past generations.
Located at the womb, just below the belly button, the sacral chakra holds the energy to identify with one’s emotions. You have the right to feel, you have the right to pleasure. Issues connected to the sacral chakra usually involve pleasure, movement, sexuality, emotions, and nurturance. Exploring one’s emotional identity and living in harmony with mind, body, and spirit
The purpose of this workshop is to connect with the womb and sacral energy, to discover and explore your true emotional identity-whatever that looks like for you. We are going to utilize yoga poses, breathwork, and guided meditations to engage and connect with the energy of the sacral chakra for healing, restoration, and balance. Lastly, we will journal, discuss and engage in emotional release or containment (as appropriate), inner child work, and boundary work, to address our experiences, physical sensations, and emotions that arose throughout the session.
