This book is brilliant for someone who knows very little about chakras to anyone who knows much more. This is excellent how you can journal your way through, and is essentially a course of getting in tune with your chakras, it goes into in-depth detail for the 7 main chakras with lots of exercises to help you along the course.This is quite a big book and in my opinion is best used as a course which could take you up to 10 months but, if your serious about learning in-depth about Chakras then is well worth it.An invaluable book for anyone wishing to learn more, and very easy to follow, written in a very friendly way.

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.

I love Anodea Judith's other book on the chakras - 'Eastern Body, Western Mind' and wanted to see if she had done someting that took her ideas further, into more practical ways of exploring them. This is that book - lots of hands on exercises - e.g. journalling, yoga for each chakra, groupwork, suggestions for music and sacred rituals..something for everybody to try. I liked it so much I bought it for my daughter who also found it a great introduction to the chakras - each section tells you enough to help you get a good idea of what the chakra is about without being too wordy. So - an excellent companion to Eastern Body.. or an equally excellent introduction to practically working through the chakras in interesting and satisfying ways. Judith has a talent for communication and uses her therapeutic skills and grounded wisdom to great effect here. Highly recommended.
