"This is an awesome video! As a student and teacher of yoga, I recommend it with excitement and enthusiasm. I have been impressed by Anodea's knowledge of the chakras in her books, but here she has brought the depth of her understanding to life in a way that blows the mind. She dazzles and informs by transmitting straight through the analytical mind via the senses and the heart to the deeper places of knowing. The visions, music and words moved me, awakened me energetically and emotionally, flowing through me from root to crown. The experience is both visceral and ethereal. Quite an accomplishment! The images are stunning and original. The experience of both (thank you) soundtracks is hypnotic, capturing effectively the vibrational quality of each chakra. I know this review sounds unbelievable, but I encourage you to check it out for yourself. In my opinion, this beautiful and unique DVD is a must-have for anyone interested in the inter-relationship of mind, body and spirit."
Artful , stunning graphics, good content, poor voiceover

"I recommend this DVD for its artful treatment and good conceptual overview of the Chakra ?system?. To describe the 7 Chakras visually is a challenge and I cannot give high enough praise for the absolutely professional and wonderful graphics and work that went into this DVD.
I also liked the textual desciptions accompanying the visuals, but have to shudder at the voice narration given by the author. This is not meant to detract from the material, but the talent and thought given to this DVD lies not in the ability to deliver a dramatic reading. Unfortunately, the default narration is supplemented by an option of poetry to music (a DVD audio option) which is even worse than the default narration. It surprises me that a successful practitioner and author of Chakra material has been allowed to produce and publish what is so obviously a flawed performance without trusted advisors pointing out the folly of the "emporer's clothing."
However, I would still recommend this DVD for the art and graphics, the content itself and the thought and professional treatment of the material. If the narration were only more professional and did not detract from the other qualities, this would be absolutely stellar."
Visually delightful... but thats about it.

"This video is, without a doubt a stunning piece of visual work. This really does make for an excellent way to introduce the chakras to someone who has never before encountered the subject. Which, of course, is the purpose of this video. In this it succeeds.
The only problem I have is justifying the price. There is very little information given and the video is very short (20 min run time). Had I purchased this video instead of just renting it, I would definitely feel ripped off and this would quite possibly be a 1 star review.
...On the other hand, if I were still into psychedelics, this would be a five star review."

"I've known about the chakras for 25 years, but what did I really know about them? It's one thing to read about something and it's quite another to experience it. Viewing Anodea Judith's video is a totally sensual experience. It's like accepting an invitation to go right inside your body with 3-D, no, more like 7-D, glasses and SEE what your chakras FEEL like, or maybe FEEL what they SEE like. It was truly like a journey to another world until I realized that the world I was exploring was ME.Alex Wayne's art is astonishing. It makes you wonder how he got all that computer equipment inside the human body! And Anodea's writing is sheer poetry of the spirit. This video is a work of art, but it's more than that. It takes you deep into an individual experience and when you come out you are more than you were when you went in; you feel alive and glowing with new wisdom. That's a real gift."
