Chakras and their functions were first mentioned in the Vedas, ancient Hindu texts of knowledge. Chakra is a Sanskrit word meaning wheel and it refers to the seven energy centers in our body. These centers regulate the flow of energy through our energy system. Our chakras open and close when we decide what to think and when we feel.

All that spirits desire, spirits attain.” ~Kahlil Gibran

Total time:



  1. Flautist and composer Terry Oldfield and his wife, Australian–born Soraya Saraswati, have spent years traveling across the globe, giving workshops that combine music with meditation and holistic healing. Dancing Through the Chakras is a single-track CD, a long, beautiful path to the ecstasy of increased mind-body-spirit awareness through dance and focus on our bodies’ seven “spiraling vortexes of energy.” With her sweet Australian accent, Saraswati opens Dancing Through the Chakras with some basic intent and guidance to visualizing our seven spinning circles, noting which instruments call us to which chakras before stepping back to begin the thunderous tribal celebration of the first chakra, with call-and-response shouts and incessant ceremonial drumming.

    As Oldfield and Saraswati’s music moves up the chakras, an earthy sound expresses sensuality and seduction with romantic string swells rising even as the chants of the first chakra continue and morph. Arab vocalizing and snake-charmer flutes guide you through the sinuous movement of the heart sacral chakras to the solo flute that signals the spiritual awakening of the third-eye chakra. What does it feel like to be in a human body anyway? If you close your eyes and feel, where do you sense your nerve endings? What signals constitute your sense of being awake in the body? If you pay attention you realize there are actually not very many; maybe the ache in your feet, nervousness in your pelvis, rumbling in your stomach? Dancing Through the Chakras can help you find a better way to feel yourself existing inside your body; it’s like living life tied to the earth with a safety cord, free to bounce around anywhere without ever falling down, and wrapped in a snug blanket of love wherever you go. These energy sources are you, the aspects of yourself.

    Like most things in life, Dancing Through the Chakras gives back what you put into it; you can just have it on as background music and be moved and inspired, or immerse yourself fully into dancing meditation with deep focus on Saraswati’s instructions, and come out finding yourself in a new realm of calm and focused energy. Focusing on and working with our body’s energy centers can’t help but lead us deeper and deeper into awareness. Every bit of effort to let go is rewarded, and if it’s as easy as following the call of the flute and the guidance of the words, then you can dance your way to a perfect freedom of self, one movement at a time.

  2. “As DANCING THROUGH THE CHAKRAS starts, you are offered a brief introduction from narrator Soraya Saraswati about your forthcoming experience of chakra invigoration. Soon a bit of tribal drumming comes into the backdrop—first soft, then louder and finally it explodes into the forefront, a whirl of drums, hand percussion and vocal calls. And so your journey has begun. Periodically, Saraswati will show up to describe the chakra that you have ventured into. Between those interludes, you are fully immersed in Terry Oldfield’s primal soundscapes. Some, like the initial segment, have a strong African tribal quality to them. Others delve more into the Indian side of the musical spectrum, and the concluding tracks are soft and meditative, focusing on Oldfield’s flute playing.”
