She is considered one of the country's foremost experts on the combination of chakras and therapeutic issues and on the interpretation of the Chakra System for the Western lifestyle. She spends much of her time on the road teaching, with workshops and trainings offered across the US, Europe, and Central America.
Anodea Judith, Ph.D., is a therapist and workshop leader who has written extensively on the use of the chakra system as a template for transformation. Her books include Eastern Body, Western Mind (Celestial Arts, 1996), Wheels of Life (Llewellyn, 2004), and numerous audio and visual works, including a spectacular DVD, The Illuminated Chakras (Sacred Centers, 2004).
Rather than presenting an esoteric borrowing from Indian culture, Judith employs the metaphoric language of the chakra system within the context of modern psychology. Her clear organization and numerous charts make browsing for subjects of personal relevance a breeze, and her comparison of the various maps of psychological development (Freudian, Piagetian, Eriksonian, Reichian, and others) is intriguing. The book provides a useful tool for contemplating our strengths, weaknesses, and appropriate approaches to growth. -Yoga Journal". . . [S]parkles with insight.
