Some people find God by living in harmony with the rhythms of nature, others by the practice of specific meditations and prayers. For some, the way is beauty, creativity, love, devotion, study, or service. Just as many rivers lead to the sea, there are many paths to God. Each of the seven primary energy centers of the human body - the chakras - corresponds to a specific path. In this book, those paths are outlined, complete with spiritual exercises, giving you, the reader, a sense of the most fruitful direction for your journey.
