Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Using the ancient Hindu sevenfold chakra system but updated for contemporary New Agers, this self-help manual sees the chakras as dealing with seven essential rights--to have, feel, act, love and be loved, speak and hear the truth, see, and know. The authors, both clinical psychologists, provide a self-help manual of personal mind-body spirit growth and integration based upon their chakra workshops. They outline a wide variety of exercises, for individuals and sometimes for partners, with attention to details of environment (or altar), color, and music and with suggestions for further resources. In whole or in part, this book will be a useful, practical guide for those interested in its combination of modern psychotherapy, physical culture, and ancient yogic perspective. Recommended for public libraries with New Age collections.

The Sevenfold Journey is a wonderful guide to using the chakra system for self improvement. After providing an overview of the chakras, the book goes into much more detail about each one, including related foods, colors, symbols, etc., and causes and effects of difficiencies in each chakra. Each chapter also provides several practical ways to work on strengthening the chakra through journal exercises, physical exercises, and related activities. This is a book that cannot be read through quickly. I have been working on it for several months and have only made it through the first 4 chakras. It has been a true healing experience, bringing to light the causes of many physical and emotional problems I've experienced and helping me to work through them. I highly recommend this book.

This is one of my favorite books, and one I recommend often to friends. It's topic are the chakras, the seven energy centers of the human body. After an introductory chapter, it devotes a chapter to each chakra in depth. Unlike so many other books about chakras, though, this book does NOT just talk & talk & talk about them. Talk feeds the head, and the chakras are about whole-body experience: being able to give a precise verbal definition of the third chakra is NOT at all the same as having a healthy third chakra! This book thoroughly acknowledges that, and for each chakra, recommends a wealth of approaches --- including word association exercises, journal exercises, yogic stretches & exercises (all illustrated with photographs), partner bodywork (again, photographs), and sacred rituals --- for each chakra. Because of the richness and depth of the treatment of each chakra, this book is ideal for someone quite experienced in energetic bodywork as well as for someone who barely knows what a "chakra" is. It can be read cover to cover, or can be consulted as a reference book when issues arise with a particular chakra. If you follow the program they lay out, doing all the exercises for all the chakras, there is almost no way you could avoid experiencing some measure of personal growth and transformation. I can think of no other book that better deserves the epiteth of "User Manual for the Human Body." I highly recommend this book.

Format: Paperback
This book is one of the best Chakra books available. It is suited for the beginner along with someone like me that has been studing Chakras for several years now. Each Chapter is devoted to 1 Chakra, in it you have several sections like general information, correspondences, then Yoga practices that can be done alone or with a partner or group, and journaling exercises. There are also sections for people into the Metaphysical world like Alter setups and Rituals.. Put all this together and you have a really nice study into each Chakra. The only thing I really found missing is meditiations, which can be found in some of her other published works. Currently she is my favorite in studing the Chakra system and would recommend this book to anyone wanting to learn how to bring your energy systems into balance. This is an easy read- but it is best to follow the writers advice and work on each Chapter(Chakra) for 1 month, making this a 9 month program of study, this is not something to be rushed, it takes time to make the Chakra system, strong, healthy and in balance- this can not be said enough- Take your Time with this book, and do all the exercises she puts forth to get the most out of this book.

In the end you will find a difference in yourself and how you feel and you deal with life's up and downs.

I worked with the exercises in this book alongside traditional psychotherapy recently, and my therapist was suprised how much progress I quickly made. This workbook gives another aproach to mental health that is spiritually aligned, whatever your religious or spiritual background. The exercises are interesting, useful, and very relevant to what the rest of the book teaches. The authors give many different tactics to approach a problem, which I found useful, and their explanations of the chakra system was consitant with other texts I have read. They arrange things easily and plainly, without over-complicating the subject. This book provides a great reference that I've used again and again, and as a workbook, it allows you to use it directly in your life. The yoga stuff in the book could have been improved--I'm not familiar with Yoga and found it hard to do the physical exercises in the book.

Caroline Myss fans will love this book. The simple presentation offers a realistic method of getting in touch with the mind, body and spirit in order to bring balance and fluidity to one's energy system. You will be amazed at how this book can foster self-awareness, positive emotions, and incredible insights. If you are living in the upper chakras, this book will ground you and help balance you.

I began to read this book and put it away thinking that I was having a bad day and was not open and receptive. A few weeks later I picked it up again and continued to read it hoping that I might be open to its message. Again, I was not impressed on my second attempt although I felt a bit more open than on my first reading. I am not an expert in chakras but I am doing a good deal of reading in the subject lately. What I am learning is that chakras in the west are predominately cloaked in "New Age rhetoric" and chakras from the east (India, Vedic, Yoga) are centered in reality, not real (tangible), but real (cultural). If you are comfortable in the "New Age", then this book is for you. You will find the terminology and phrases right in line with typical "New Age" subject matter. If you are looking for a real (cultural) definition and or therapy you might want to look elsewhere. Chakras are subtle energy pathways that are an intricate part of Yoga practice (Yoga in its entirety).
This book has its place and there are those that will find the information and exercises helpful, I was not one of them. I have been interested in eastern philosophy for many years and find that the truth lies at the source, not in the west. We westerners have a bad habit of interpreting eastern philosophy and culture without truly understanding it. The New Age takes the bits and pieces and try to make sense out of it or create something altogether different. There is no quick western "New Age" way to remove what ails you. Your answers lie in the East and they will take time, knowledge, and practice. Thanks for reading my review.
