Chakras: Back to Basics

The svadhishthana chakra, or sacral chakra, is the home of all the sacred waters within us. Svadhishthana means “in her own abode”—the abode of Shakti herself—while sacrum, the home of our second chakra, means “sacred.” Shari Friedrichsen explains what happens when this area becomes out of balance, and what we need to do to have a healthy sacral chakra. Learn the tools to strengthen your svadhishthana chakra and enjoy a life full of fluidity, grace, sweetness, and creativity.
