Overview

A Brilliant and Accessible Guide to the Yogic Path of the Spirit

This groundbreaking course outlines the basic anatomy of this essential energy system and its operations in the physical, astral, and causal bodies. The unique characteristics of each chakra are described in four specific dimensions: physical location, organs they control, emotions they express, and mental characteristics they embody. These ideas give strong theoretical support and general guidance for those who wonder how and why chakra meditation should be done.

Paul Grilley offers specific physical and energetic practices to develop awareness of the chakras as well as meditation techniques that aspiring yogis may use to purify the karma that operates through each chakra, achieving a deeper understanding and appreciation for the powerful role these elements play in our lives.

The Book of Life Review by Heather
Rating
An excellent DVD! There is so much covered in a clear comprehensive presentation of the what, why and how to that which IS Yoga. It unfolds the many paths to awaken that completion, that wholeness of what/who we truly are. It is packed with that which elicits Yes and AHA moments. With That calm understanding comes a wonderful palpable orbiting of energy.

A wonderful rendering of "The Book of Life". (Posted on 1/26/2012)

Changed my life -- no joke Review by Mikey

I was home with the flu and chilling in bed going over the entire Paul Grilley disc on Chakra Theory. I had lightly dealt with Chinese Chi theory in martial arts but had not delved to deeply into the Indian Chakra lingo until this disc.

Throughout the meditations and lecture I was acutely aware of body energy channels and the intensity increased as the practice went along....to the point of bewilderment sometimes. I could feel energy moving all aroundthe described chakras and spent a good deal of time in the stomach area due to my stomach flu.

I believe this chakra work sped me through my flu, and that's the truth. The profound creation of inner energy through Pauls teachings is still being put to good use in my daily energy practice.

This disc is a great addition to an individuals ongoing work towards inner healing. I'll use the techniques at home and at work to bring awareness to stress and general body harmonization. I especially like comparisons to other body systems like the comparison the Chinese energy work. (Posted on 7/21/2009)

Media Reviews

"This DVD is Paul's best yet. With 5-1/2 hours of lecture presentations and 12 different guided meditation practices, it represents fantastic value. The lectures cover an overview of Tantric theory and the goals of spiritual practice, with detailed discussion of the functions of each chakra. The lectures are densely packed ... but the clarity of the subject matter is amazing, and he appears effortlessly and in simple language to be able to link together so much of the underpinning philosophy of yoga, and to paint a holistic view of the oneness of yoga science.

“This guy... should be compulsory viewing for trainee teachers, and for those of us who have been teaching for a few years as well. As I watched the lectures, I found new insights and understandings of theory that had always been a bit hazy in my mind before. Paul is a talented teacher and communicator!"

-- Yoga Scotland Magazine

"At some point, we may feel stuck in the wheel of samsara, the cycle of suffering, reliving our samskara, defined by Paul Grilley as 'habits of action, of want and longing that manifest in certain ways.'

There is a way out. In the lectures and practices on his new DVD Chakra Theory and Meditation, Grilley convinced me that one method of escaping the aforementioned fate involves awakening the chakras through meditation. The practices Grilley teaches illuminate what needs to be examined in our lives in order to transcend the physical body and create a conscious, unending and blissful experience.

This is a heady subject, indeed. Chakra Theory contains four hours of theoretical lectures describing the seven primary chakra centers, which are the spiritual wheels of energy located in the subtle body in the areas of the brain and spine. These control the flow of chi or prana, our lifeforce. Grilley explains what each chakra governs and how to access them energetically. Fortunately, his lucid and accessible explanations are captivating throughout.

Viewers eager to incorporate theory into practice will enjoy the series of nine-minute guided meditations, manageable alone or as a grounding entry into a longer meditation session. More intricate practices involve integrating the bandha (energetic locks). Special features offer recommendations for further study.

Chakra Theory is an info-packed weekend workshop in a box viewers can visit again and again. The set also includes meditations in MP3 format, perfect for downloading to experience chakra awakening anywhere"

About Paul Grilley

Paul Grilley

A well-known master of yin yoga, Paul brings a thorough grounding in Hatha and Ashtanga yoga as well as anatomy and kinesiology to his teaching, which integrates the Taoist yoga of martial arts master Paulie Zink and the Chinese meridian and acupuncture theories of Dr. Hiroshi Motoyama. Paul's book, Yin Yoga: Principles and Practice, explains how yin yoga can teach us to relax, be patient, be quiet, and focus on the skeleton and its joints—a necessary counterpoint to today's more ubiquitous muscular yoga.

Paul began to study yoga after reading Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda. He holds a master’s degree from St. John's College in the study of the Great Books of the Western World, and he enjoys reading about esoteric subjects and science, continuously looking for ways to bridge the two.
