Woodstock Chakra Chimes combine color & sound to underscore the ancient meaning of the major energy centers of the human body. Eastern philosophy can be difficult for the Western scientific mind to assimilate, and yet, many of the Eastern claims are being proven scientifically as the time-honored truths that they are. According to the traditions, there are 7 basic chakras, which correlate to the 7 main nerve ganglia emanating from the spinal column. Each chakra location has a unique meaning, orientation and healing potential. Woodstock Chakra Chimes are intended to remind us of the strength of mind over matter and, through sound, give us a small window into the balance of the physical and metaphysical.
