In this episode of Season 3, Amy and Alex explore the root chakra. They drop into the not one but two root mandalas in the coloring book and describe how those images ground them. Then there is always the place of breathing all the way down to your anus (or pelvic floor) and how awareness of the root can increase resiliency and relieve stress ("Better Living Through Anal Breathing"!). They offer some things you can do at home to bring more awareness to the critical central location in the body, both physically and energetically.
Share one of your colored "root" pages with us (download PDF). What do you see? We'd love to see through your eyes. 🙂

I want to point you to this essay about the film "Free Solo" (trailer). That essay wi...Read More »
Everything ends. Everything is fleeting, temporary. This feeling, this open wound, this particular phase of the moon — we want it to be the way it is, but it isn't. It is the way it will be, and will ...Read More »
