Welcome to Our Healing Sanctuary
The therapeutic philosophy at Chakra Garden of Ashland is a unique blend of Western Somatic Psychology plus Eastern Yoga and nondual contemplative practices. We present a combination of modern and ancient psychological, physiological, and spiritual body-mind principles and practices.
RE DO Phil part here:
Western psychology provides an understanding of our sense of self and inter-personal relationship skills. Somatic psychology brings together the intelligence of the mind and the wisdom of the body. Eastern yoga tradition advocates two ultimate realities: matter/life-energy (prakriti), and non dual subtle-self/fundamental consciousness (purusha). The body is a conduit for life-energy (prakriti) and the vehicle through which the subtle-self, or fundamental consciousness (purusha), can know itself. Yoga & embodied nonduality practices awaken the subtlest levels of being, and strengthening the body’s ability to support our transformation into wholeness.
The chakras are a road map into our own self-awareness and spiritual/emotional healing. They give us clues on our journey to deepen awareness of both "prakriti" and "purusha" the subtlest qualities of our being. It is our belief that to manifest our fullest potential, it is crucial that we attend to this most subtle level as a non-dual embodied experience.
The whole-person gestalt of Somatic Psychology plus Yoga and non-dual contemplative practices comes to play in the garden environment and the dynamic therapeutic work at Chakra Garden of Ashland.
The environment at Chakra Garden intends to support anyone who wants to enjoy Ashland's unique gifts, including people on a quest for meaning and spiritual awakening.

Zeb Lancaster PhD & Candace Cave (Dakini Candance) are your hosts at Chakra Garden of Ashland. Inspired by principles & practices of Yoga since the 1970s, we're united by a curiosity about life-energy (prakriti) and the essential self (purusha).
