The American Meditation Institute in Averill Park, New York, will present a new three-day Yoga of Medicine course entitled “Chakras: Balancing Subtle Body Energies” with Leonard and Jenness Perlmutter beginning Wednesday, March 14, 2012 from 6:30 through 8:30 PM. This course provides a detailed understanding of the character, anatomy and function of the seven major chakras. The Sanskrit word chakra literally translates as wheel or disk. In traditional Indian medicine, chakras refer to that series of subtle vortices in the human body that are believed to receive and express energies that maintain the physical form. According to Mr. Perlmutter, “When knowledge of the subtler aspects of the chakras is understood and incorporated into a daily mind-body medicine self-care practice, individuals are freed from the harmful effects of fear, anger, greed, guilt and jealousy. By learning to ‘balance’ the chakras through advanced Yoga Science purification therapies, students will gain valuable psychological insights that positively impact their ability to make discriminating lifestyle choices, boost their immune system and strengthen their powers of concentration. According to Perlmutter, “Rediscovering one’s inner source of physical health, emotional contentment and spiritual peace can be as simple as finding the proper knowledge and cultivating the will force to apply it.”
Leonard Perlmutter is the founder of The American Meditation Institute and award-winning author of “The Heart and Science of Yoga: A Blueprint for Peace, Happiness and Freedom from Fear”. Noted physicians Mehmet Oz MD, Dean Ornish MD and Bernie Siegel MD have endorsed Mr. Perlmutter’s book, which serves as the curriculum for his meditation and yoga mind-body medicine CME course for physicians.
