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.
-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"
-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..... so basically places where she left out info and said get her other books i think that she should have included it in this book and the chapter on meditation should have been removed. but other than that this is still a GREAT book and i highly recommend this book, if you are looking for the TRUE information about the chakra's which is backed by knowledge from the ORIGINAL TANTRIC TEXT.
