During yoga one evening I received the idea to make a series of collages of the seven chakras. In Sanskrit the word “chakra” means wheel, circle, or disk. The seven chakras in yoga philosophy are the primary energy points along the spine and in the head that correspond with the nervous system. In a sense, the chakras are the points in the human body where physical and spiritual energy meet.
Each chakra is associated with a different element and part of the body, beginning with earth at the root chakra and ending with cosmic consciousness at the crown chakra. I still have much to learn about the chakras and creating these collages has helped me step into a basic understanding of what each one means.
For further information I recommend The Book of Chakras by Ambika Waters.
