Chakra Garden Mission Statement:
To create an herb and flower garden following Yogic body/mind/spirit healing principles.
The central healing theme of Chakra Garden is represented in the 7 primary Chakra life-energy centers.
There are 7 distinct sacred areas in Chakra Garden, each related to healing a chakra.
Everything found within each sacred area in some way has a sensory healing relationship with that chakra, be it color, sound, smell, story, medicine properties, energetic qualities, etc.
There is designated space within each chakra area where a person can repose quietly to attune to the healing qualities for that chakra.
The Chakra Garden of Ashland was designed with the understanding that unwanted habits and learning new ways of being require experiential, sensory based learning. The part of the right brain that controls emotions, the limbic system, is governed by body sensations. Learning via sensory input is vital for rapid recovery from challenging events, and for manifesting your full potential.
Open the garden door on any building at Chakra Garden of Ashland. Step out onto a particular path and wind your way along through our healing garden.
Stroll the paths of our budding urban paradise to discover seven unique areas. Each sacred space is devoted to healing one of your body’s seven energy centers, called “chakras” in the yogic/ayurvedic healing system.
For instance, if your heart is grieving, you might seek healing in the center of the garden. You could enter the 4th chakra space to lay yourself down for deep rest and nourishment upon a bed of chamomile. The therapeutic properties of this familiar plant are so powerful, medieval monks relied upon chamomile beds to heal the most depleted patients (seekers) and to encourage the well-being of those recovering from long illnesses.
Or, You could go dance around the fire in 3rd chakra space to strengthen your sense of autonomy.
Or, You might want to encourage your own awakening, so you’d take a towel with you to 2nd chakra space, soak in a warm tub, and then lay down to love yourself (or your beloved).
Or, Ground yourself in 1st chakra space, under a grandmother-ancient apple tree and enjoy yoga on the lawn as the sun rises over Grizzly Peak.
The geography/topography of the gardens is mostly complete. The buildings around the garden are complete. Most of the trees have been growing for a year or more. We’ve planted some shrubs and some plants.
We are just beginning to organize plantings but don’t really expect the grounds to begin to show-off until spring 2016. In the meantime, there are already many areas that we enjoy and some chakra areas available to explore for healing this spring. And all of the indoor areas ready to provide you with wonderful, sacred space for deepening experience and sense of wonder.
Proudly standing at the front of our garden property is vintage Chakra House. Dr. Zeb’s office is through the front door. You’ll discover many deep healing possibilities such as embodied non-dual meditation, couples counseling, herbal wisdom, guided yoga, intimacy and sex therapy, and bodywork.
The long northern property line, fronting Hersey Street, presents a line of small buildings. West to East these buildings are: The Temple, a sacred healing space with dancing Dakini at the door; Arbor House, a compact space shaded by grandfather grapevine; Lhasa House, our clean guest accommodation space; the tool shed; and our storage loft.
