"A little knowledge is a dangerous thing." This book is a disappointing mishmash of numerous cultural and philosophical views of the chakras, much pseudoscience, and a little bit of science. While some of the information was interesting, some was so wrong as to be dangerous (especially the chapter on diseases). And I was very disappointed at the downplaying of the yogic/Hindu understanding of the chakras; that was my primary interest but this author is more interested in Native American, Egyptian, Greek, and Goddess religion approaches to the chakras.

I'll be returning to other books on the Chakras (e.g., [Chakra Yoga] by [[Alan Finger]], but not this one. ( )

A somewhat mystical explanation of the chakras, mostly in relationship to western culture. It also gives information/evidence from a ucla research study on the chakras. I have a lot of interest in chakras and healing touch, but I had some trouble getting through some parts because they sounded so mystical. Mostly in reference to rituals/legends from other cultures involving the chakras. (The reason it gets 4 and not 5 stars.) ( )
