This spring I attended a meditation retreat hosted and taught by Dr. Joe Dispenza.
A fan of his work, it was amazing to experience, in person, the principles of his teaching and research. One of the things Dispenza teaches is a modern and biological take on chakras, the ancient Indian understanding of energy in the body.
My introduction to chakras was through yoga but more recently I’ve been learning about these ideas from Dispenza, specifically in his book Becoming Supernatural, and also at the meditation retreat I attended.
I’m no expert, but the seven energy centres in our body are fascinating to discuss and explore. And so I start this episode with a summary of each energy centre or chakra.
As if integrative medicine, transcendent spiritual experiences, and quantum physics weren’t interesting enough I add another angle to this conversation, the idea of harmonics theory in music.
I’m not a doctor. I’m not a scientist. I’m not a guru. But I am a musician. And the theory of harmonics adds a layer of depth and a complementary lens through which to understand energy, both scientifically and spiritually.
Maybe those two categories – science and spirituality – often seen in opposition to each other, are just two sides of the same coin called “being human”.
Join me in this episode as I sit down with my upright piano to teach the seven energy centres and an introduction to harmonics theory (and consider how these two things might be related); and ask you to evaluate the frequency of your own life and what it’s teaching you.
