Anodea Judith, Ph.D. is the founder and director of Sacred Centers, and a groundbreaking thinker, writer, and spiritual teacher. Her passion for the realization of untapped human potential matches her concern for humanity's impending crises -- her fervent wish is that we "wake up in time." She holds Masters and Doctoral degrees in Psychology and Human Health, with lifelong studies of alternative medicine, yoga, mythology, history, sociology, systems theory, and mystic spirituality. She is considered the country's foremost experts on the combination of chakras and therapeutic issues and on the interpretation of the Chakra System for the Western lifestyle. She spends much of her time on the road teaching, with workshops and trainings offered across the U.S., Europe and Central America.
She is best known for the chakra classic, Wheels of Life: A User's Guide to the Chakra System, (Llewellyn, 1987, revised 1999), an illustrated 435 page manual that has come to be considered the definitive work on the subject. With approximately, 200,000 U.S. copies sold and additional printings in 12 languages. A second book, co-authored with Selene Vega:The Sevenfold Journey: Reclaiming Mind, Body, and Spirit through the Chakras(Crossing Press, 1993, 289 pp.) arose out of the popular Nine-Month Chakra Intensive, taught by Judith and Vega for over two decades. Eastern Body, Western Mind: Psychology and the Chakra System as a Path to the Self, released by Celestial Arts in February 1997 charts childhood development, related difficulties and techniques for healing them, all within the chakra model. In March of 2000, she released a six-tape audio course called: The Chakra System: A Complete Course in Self-Diagnosis and Healing through Sounds True, Inc., followed by the popular boxed kit: Chakra Balancing. Her artistic expression combines with her mystic passion in her award winning DVD, The Illuminated Chakras, a two co-creation with her son, artist and animator, Alex Wayne.
Her most recent book, Waking the Global Heart: Humanity's Rite of Passage from the Love of Power to the Power of Love, charts the history of human development into our present crisis and necessary transformation, with an inspiring message of hope for our future.
