ccording to Kelly Behrend, everything fits into the chakra system— trauma, personal healing, books, even social justice and activism. Racism, for example, is a root chakra issue, while sexism and LGBTQ equality is a sacral chakra deal.
As a person forever interested in social activism—and now certainly more than ever—when I found out Kelly offers a course that weaves collective healing and social justice into the framework of the chakra system, I knew I had to learn more.
If the chakras seem “basic” to you, Kelly insists that they are actually rich with spiritual profundity, and that one of the great dangers of transformational work is that the ego tries to sidestep learning important ancient wisdoms and leap into the transcendent too soon. The chakras and how life-energy works are things that are often bypassed in this way.
In this interview I pick Kelly’s brain on why working with the ancient framework of the chakras is so important for personal health, spiritual expansion, and collective liberation. Enjoy!
