5.0 out of 5 stars Best chakra book on the market!! 8 Aug 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
After reading many NEW AGE books i can honestly say that this is the best chakra book on the market, as this book deals with the EASTERN philosophies, which is where this information came from, i have noticed that alot of these new agers, tend not to credit the actually source of the information, whereas this book does that perfectly. The author includes many ancient philosophies, and other accurate information that is true to the TANTIRC TEXT which these new agers, don't want to talk about.

Good points:-
-breaks down each chakra, without waffling, gets straight to the point
-shows charts and pictures to further define points being made
-gives credit to the eastern philosophies
-gives information that other new agers seem to "leave out"

Bad points:-
-often gives a shallow break down of some topics and instead the author recommends you to get her other books
-also would have been good, if the author gave information about some psychological traits, that indicate whether a chakra is functioning properly or not.

But that is really the only bad point i can say about this book, as it is very WELL researched and includes information from the ORIGINAL TANTRIC TEXT where the knowledge of the chakras came from. but the only other bad point i will say is that, i feel like the chapter in the book called POWER OF MEDITATION is really a waste and was unnecessary to include in the book, because this author already has a book on meditation, and im sure she would have included, meditation for the chakra's in there. but instead in this book she tries to give you a written meditation, but then still recommends that you get audio CD'S from her website.....

5.0 out of 5 stars Quintessential Reference on Chakras 25 Oct 2003
EXPLORING CHAKRAS firmly establishes itself as the penultimate source on the subject of chakras, by providing an abundance of quality information in a very organized and easy-to-read format. Author Susan Shumsky studied for years with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in his ashrams, and her more than 21 years of working with chakras comes shining through.
Shumsky brings yogic wisdom together with western practicality in such a way that every chapter overflows with delectable Sanskrit words, beautiful illustrations, and tables. I found the description of secret yogic practices to be especially fascinating. I highly recommend EXPLORING CHAKRAS to any serious student of chakras; it's the quintessential reference on the subject!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but.... 9 Jan 2004
By Wulfshado - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Coming from the perspective of a western body/energy worker, I got this book hoping to learn a little about the Eastern tradition of chakras. I certainly got it and I'm sure it's all wonderful...if you want to learn about six of this, and seven of that, and fourteen of these other things, while learning a foreign language and trying to fathom a complex diety system.
There's lots of affirmations, diagrams to color, exercises, and plugs for the authors other two books....which I hope I won't regret having purchased as much I did this one! I did love the first few chapters which was all I really needed -- I wasn't looking to take up a theology or mythic tradition, or TM.
There are some awesome diagrams tying the body organs and systems to the chakras which I appreciated for pulling a few things together for me, which is why it gets three stars. But from about page 79 on, I felt like I was slipping into a coma and wanted a nap because of the complexities of the system presented here. I was uncomfortable with the 'God' thing in the affirmations, etc., the selling of the 'find a guru or you'll hurt yourself', as well as the 'look out for the bad guys on the astral/underworld planes bit...but hey, that might just be me!
This definately isn't for intuitives. But it's absolutely great if you want to dive into Kundalini and yoga and really learn the Eastern Traditions thoroughly. This book will definately help you out there. Just make sure you buy her other books. Yep, one of those, you need the other book Exploring Meditation to do some of the exercises in this one. And you might want to get her Divine Revelation book too. (which sort of puts the kabosh on all the warnings given in this one about doing the work yourself!) Man, I hate when they do that!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Book on Chakras Ever Written 25 Jan 2004
By Arnold Champion - Published on Amazon.com
I have never read a better, more comprehensive book about the chakras and kundalini. In fact, I have probably not read a better book about Indian philosophy. I have read Susan Shumsky's other books, which are also fantastic, but she has really done her research on this one.
She shows not only how the chakras relate to the physical body, nervous system, etc., but also how they correspond to the cosmic body--even to the creation of the universe, Star of David, OM, Sanskrit alphabet, Hindu deities, etc., etc. Amazing how she ties everything together.
All the things I thought I knew about the chakras were so much less than what this book reveals. It may be easy to read, and the exercises are simple to do, but its deep philosophy definitely gets my vote for extreme profundity. If Exploring Chakras doesn't totally blow your mind, I would be surprised.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Chakras Book 6 May 2003
By Allison Winters - Published on Amazon.com
I have read every book about chakras that I could find. However, I have never seen one like this! The author has gone where no one has dared to go before--into the microcosm within the macrocosm. This is a breathtaking exposition of the universe that is your own body. Having read this book, I feel I have just taken the ride of my life into uncharted regions of time and space with the beloved Kundalini Shakti as my chaffeur. Wow!

5.0 out of 5 stars very complete explanation of the chakras 1 Feb 2010
By M. Hux - Published on Amazon.com
Exploring chakras is a very detailed and complete description of the chakras and the human energy system as well as yogic practices. The most complete explanation that I've seen of the chakras including very detailed explanations of their qualities, and characteristics and how to lift and open the chakras. You can see in this book that Shumsky studied with an eastern master for 20 years. It is detailed to read and for me it is an awesome reference book.
