For many years I’ve been curious to learn about chakras and how they can heal the body, mind, emotions, and spirit. As a mandala artist, I’ve also been attracted to the mysterious colorful and symbolic rich chakra art. Last spring, I decided to focus on my health and set the intention for this next decade to be healthy, vibrant, and joyful.
For any wellness journey to be effective, it begins with awareness and truth telling. In studying the chakras, I’ve become so self aware and inspired to try new ways to heal and balance my life. My approach includes consulting with a naturopathic doctor alongside exploring various modalities including clean eating, Ayurveda, Kundalini Yoga, and chakra healing. What’s exciting is that this chakra journey is leading me down a path introducing me to a variety of healing techniques that include using color, sound, gemstones, essential oils, and so much more.
What are chakras?
Just as we have a skeletal, circulatory, and digestive systems, we also have a subtle energetic system that runs throughout our bodies. There are seven main chakras located along the spine where energy is stored, regulated, and distributed. Each chakra has a specific tone and feeling that relates to targeted areas of the body and has a distinct effect on our mental, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing.
In the illustration above, we see the seven chakras starting from the bottom:
- Root “Muladhara” Chakra
- Sacral “Svadisthana” Chakra
- Solar Plexus “Manipura” Chakra
- Heart “Anahata” Chakra
- Throat “Vishuddha” Chakra
- Third Eye “Ajna” Chakra
- Crown “Sahasrara” Chakra
Each month starting in August 2018, I offer an online workshop focusing on one of the chakras. It’s a unique experience that combines my love for learning (intellect), Soul Journeys (spirit), creativity and art making (play), and journal prompts (truth telling).
I love getting fun mail. Don’t you?
When you sign up for one of the workshops, you’ll get a gorgeous envelope in the mail and tucked inside are various things we’ll use in the workshop. Here is a peek at some of what you get in the Root Chakra Workshop envelope. Additional surprises are tucked inside each envelope.

Chakra Art & Journal Activities
Each workshop includes project ideas and journal prompts to creatively explore the topic and themes of the featured chakra. Bring a journal and your favorite art supplies. Participants have created chakra inspired art including mandalas, earrings, collage, and SoulCollage cards.
“There is so much offered in each workshop that you get more than the three-hour webinar. You get a month’s worth of activities and inspiration.” ~ Lisa S., Missouri
Tons of Resources
I gather up a wide array of resources including links to videos, books, and websites that enrich your understanding of the chakras. You’ll discover and in some cases rediscover a variety of healing modalities.
All presentations are recorded.
You get lifetime access to the classroom.
You’ll be invited to participate in a private website called the “Journal Circle” for participants of the True North Arts journal and chakra workshops. Note that this is not a Facebook group. It’s a place where you’ll connect with other kindred, creative spirits after the webinar.
