More about Yantras
Yantras are geometric symbols that contain the specific energy of a planet or deity. Each Yantra imparts a healing energy that you can harness in your life. Yantras come from Northern India around 2,000BC. They are from the tradition of Tantra which gave rise to Mantras (audible sounds used for healing) and Yantras; their visual counterpart.
Working with Yantras connects you with these ancient teachings in a way that provides great healing in today's world. Yantras remind us of the places in ourselves we have forgotten, like our greatness, our capacity to love, our strength, or effortless abundance, and they mirror back to us their positive qualities, thus we are whole again. Healing = Wholeness.
