At the heart of healing and indeed, much of our enjoyment of life, is energy.
Through the ages it’s been called by many names: prana, chi, ki, libido, orgone energy, elan vitale. It’s at the foundation of Chinese medicine, yoga, holistic health practices and martial arts.
Bestselling author Anodea Judith calls it CHARGE, which offers us an illuminating acronym: Consciousness Having a Really Genuine Experience.
When you have a charge, you know it. You may be scared, excited, sexually aroused or feel like you’re about to cry. You may also have difficulty handling the “charge” in an argument. Perhaps you’re frequently anxious and don’t know quite what to do with your charge.
Or, you’re the kind of person who doesn’t have enough charge — tasks seem overwhelming, you feel tired and sluggish or simply depressed.
Charge is the source of our basic aliveness. It powers our lives, just like electricity runs our computers. We can use our charge in positive and healthy ways, or we can block it or squander it — both approaches will significantly impact your mental, emotional and physical health as well as your worldly success.
Childhood traumas and difficulties teach us to block our charge. Over time, we become unbalanced, with either too much or too little charge, which undermines our ability to function at our optimal capacity.
When we learn to balance, open and integrate our charge, we experience deep healing. Indeed, charge may be the single most important capacity we can build when it comes to our personal health and empowerment — as well as for our relationships and careers.
Holistic practitioners sometimes refer to working with our charge as “energy management,” but they often don’t offer much insight into what it takes to develop, sustain and optimize our charge.
That’s because charge is an emerging area for practice — one that goes beyond traditional health disciplines into realms of psychology and spirituality while still being grounded in our bodies and emotions.
Charge is the missing link in Mind-Body healing. It is at the core of every trauma and blockage, uniting our psyche with our bodies, and our emotions with our soul.
Tapping into and managing your life force appropriately requires you to cultivate the ability to be in the center of your charge, no matter what’s happening. This center rises up and down your core, where the energy centers known as the chakras reside.
You can think of your core like the main pipeline that brings water into your home. If there are blockages, you’re only given a trickle of water to perform the most essential household tasks. That’s why opening and balancing your core energy is essential to your body and being.
Caring for your internal energy system is every bit as critical as making sure the water in your home is delivered safely and properly where it’s needed. When you have kinks in your hoses, blockages in your drains, or leaks in your pipes, you not only waste water, you risk disaster.
If your energy system is out of whack, you may experience:
Understanding and working with charge in your system allays many of these issues and helps strengthen and balance your energy, which is at the core of thriving in your life — living from your center, inspired and “in the flow” much more of the time.
As you master your charge, your capacity for intimacy increases, as does your confidence at work, your physical vitality, and your sense of connection with the natural world.
You are literally “lit up” by plugging into the never-ending source of energy in the universe.
So how do you plug in?
The Charge Activation Training is designed to take your understanding of energy, psychology and embodiment to the next level. You’ll discover how to take practical steps to enhance your health, relationships and work — and receive insights and practices you can use with clients or apply to yourself in even the busiest or most stressful situations.
The Charge Activation Training is akin to a 60,000 mile tune-up for your body, emotions and mind. It offers deep clearing, aligning, opening and balancing of the energies at your core, positioning you on a better trajectory for navigating life.
These energies are symbolized in the East by chakras — spinning wheels of energy that run up and down your spine.
For millennia, yogis have recognized the chakras as the mechanism for translating the undifferentiated energy of the universe into the unique and beautiful expressions of your body, emotions, heart, voice and mind.
As we grow up, we’re more prone to create constrictions in these energy centers. For instance, if we assert ourselves and were punished for this, our power center may close down.
That’s how our psychology gets tangled up with our energy systems and bodies.
Trauma, fears and negative experiences can lead to long-term imbalances in your energy system that manifest into insecurity, anger, stress or disease.
Just as a periodic detox of your physical body can restore your health, a cleanse of your energetic body can open new possibilities for vitality, creativity and joie de vivre.
Anodea Judith has spent her life studying life force patterns. She’s a world-renowned workshop leader, somatic psychotherapist, writer and teacher on chakras, healing and yoga.
In The Charge Activation Training, Anodea will transform the way you think about your energy, emotions and mind. You’ll receive a new paradigm for energetic, physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual healing that you can apply to your own life or in your work with clients.
After nearly 40 years of teaching on the interface of psychology, energy and consciousness, and writing what are considered definitive books on our energy system (including Wheels of Life and Eastern Body, Western Mind), Anodea knows precisely how to optimize your charge — and the pitfalls to watch out for along the way
She’ll offer powerful insights and practices from her latest work on charge, whichcan advance the charge in your system and further awaken your consciousness. During these seven months, you’ll be actively mentored by Anodea and develop life-affirming, energy-building methods that can shift the whole baseline of your life.
This 7-month journey offers you a psycho-spiritual makeover — a path that will align your inner and outer worlds so you can experience greater aliveness, power and connection in every moment.
As you cleanse, balance and align your whole energy system, you become a better conductor of charge.
Many systems of personal transformation focus on the distortions, issues and kinks in your personal psychology. But few teachings deal with your energy system as a whole, and show you how you can create a sacred balance and integration of all levels of your being.
As you integrate and align your energy systems to optimize your charge, your core mission can be more joyfully expressed in the service of the people you’re here to guide, teach, heal or inspire.
Many people who work in the healing arts — yogis, therapists, teachers, coaches and bodywork practitioners — have a superficial understanding of our energetic system. In particular, they aren’t trained in the psychology of energy.
This 7-month program will give you practical teachings for your personal growth or for use in your healing work with others, including:
The Charge Activation Training offers a rare opportunity to be guided and inspired by Anodea Judith. She’s sold over a million books and DVDs and has built a reputation as a leading teacher for a reason: Her practical methods work. They’re grounded in our bodies, sophisticated about our psychology, and aligned with our souls.
Course sessions are on Tuesdays at 5:00pm Pacific.
Anodea will guide you through time-tested techniques for aligning, balancing, opening and healing the natural flow of energy in your system.
Each weekly LIVE teaching, discussion and training session will build harmoniously upon the next so that you’ll develop a holistic understanding of the practices, tools and principles you’ll need to manifest clear, consistent and life-affirming energy.
Each week, you’ll be given specific exercises and practices to deepen your experience. You’ll also have the opportunity to work with a global community of allies to strengthen your practice and application of charge.
What is charge and how do you use it for healing?
This first module covers the foundation for understanding and working with charge. What is charge? How do you track it? What happens when it’s blocked (or unblocked)? Plus, how to identify your “comfort zone” and why it’s important to expand it.
Through the principles of energy theory and practical exercises, students are introduced to an entirely new way of thinking about and experiencing energy and life force.
In this 4-week foundational module, you’ll discover:
This module is a comprehensive exploration of the entire Chakra System. You’ll discover exactly how the chakras receive, assimilate, store and transmit charge and how to diagnose and rebalance excessive or deficient levels of charge in each chakra. The eighth week of this module will focus Kundalini and putting the chakras all together.
In this 8-week module, you’ll explore in depth:
Unreleased charge becomes body armor and personality defenses. At different stages of childhood, children learn various skills in handling their charge. Failure at these particular stages, whether from neglect, abuse, trauma or any other reason, creates distinct patterns in the personality that are also evident in the body.
Famed Austrian psychoanalyst, Wilhelm Reich, identified basic character structures that manifest as predictable patterns in the body, behavior and thinking. Understanding character structures helps you understand the way that each type “binds” their charge and how best to help people with that structure to free their charge.
In this 6-week module, you’ll discover:
Trauma is a high-charge situation that disrupts the normal flow of life force. Often in trauma the charge is “frozen” and can no longer be accessed, leading to dysfunctional patterns we know as PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder).
This module examines the role that charge plays in trauma and how to safely work with its effects for permanent healing. You’ll also discover how to decode the language of the body’s symptoms and how to balance charge for physical healing.
In this 4-week module, you’ll discover how to:
Now that you understand charge in yourself and others, we look at how charge plays out in the realm of relationships, from the initial attraction between two people, playing with sexual charge, charge in arguments, and how children handle and respond to charge.
Finally, we look at the role charge plays in religious and political movements, wars, new ideas, and group dynamics.
In this 4-week module, you’ll discover:
In addition to Anodea’s transformative 7-month virtual course, you’ll receive these powerful training sessions with leading visionaries and teachers. These bonus sessions complement what you’ll learn in the course and take your understanding and practice to an even deeper level.
In this pictorial narrated slide show, Anodea Judith outlines the basics principles for understanding CHARGE. What is it? How do we use it? How do we charge and discharge? What is the comfort zone? What are the chakras? All this and more in this visually entertaining presentation.
These videos demonstrate yoga and/or bioenergetic practices designed to move charge through your body and your chakras. The exercises are simple to do and require no special assembly! Just a willingness to experiment within the laboratory of your own body, so you can build up charge at whatever level or chakra you choose!
When you’re all charged up, whether you’re excited or scared, you know you’re alive. Anodea and Seane discuss in this conversation how doing service can actually give people energy. Seane shares with us six non-negotiable activities she engages in to make sure she stays on point while doing her own work and serving consistently. Listen as Anodea and Seane explore the connection between service, yoga and the mind/body connection, and what motivates us into “doing seva” in the world.
Seane Corn is an internationally celebrated yoga teacher known for her impassioned activism, unique self-expression, and inspirational style of teaching that incorporates both the physical and mystical aspects of the practice of yoga. Her classes integrate dynamic vinyasa flow asana (linking movement with breath) with the application of precise alignment, meditation, visualization, intention and prayer to create an inner journey towards healing and empowerment.
We are all “run” by personality patterns we adopted during childhood. Yours have probably been running most of your life. Join psychotherapist and author Steven Kessler for his unique look at what these patterns are and how you can break their hold, regain control of your life, and move from limiting patterns to greater presence.
Steven Kessler, MFT has been a licensed psychotherapist for almost 30 years, studying many different healing modalities and maps of personality, including Character Structure, the Enneagram, NLP, energy work, Thought Field Therapy, and EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), as well as spending 16 years in the Diamond Heart meditation school. For over 10 years, he has been a student of Lynda Caesara, studying Character Structure, the direct perception of energy, and shamanism in the lineage of Grandfather Two Bears and the Southern Seers tradition. He is the author of the book, The 5 Personality Patterns. Since 1984, Steven has taught hundreds of groups and workshops in the U.S. and internationally, helping men and women heal their wounds and grow into their full adult selves.
The material was clear and profound. It showed Anodea's gift for making complex material completely available and practical. Yet what was truly amazing is how she guided students in unbinding "charge" to release blocks and stuck patterns... over the phone! It's been a deeply enriching and freeing experience for me personally and in my work as a workshop leader and coach. I will be referring the course material for a long time.
— Maria J Garcia, Chester Springs, Pennsylvania

This was one of if not the most powerful course I have ever taken! Anodea has created a masterpiece! It was so comprehensive and beautifully built on itself with all the layers interwoven. I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in diving deeper into their inner world and exploring their charge.
Wonderful transformative course which enabled me to understand myself and others better and to create deeper connection and more meaningful relationships. After each session I felt inspired and enjoyed to apply my learning to my life and in my work. Couldn't count all lightbulb moments.
— Martina, Bath, United Kingdom
[Anodea] shared so much valuable and unique information! I learned so much! I really loved the course! I learned from other people in the course as well. Everyone's courage and vulnerability was beautiful to feel connected to.
— Lua, New York, New York
I just have an understanding of things related to me and others and I am way more free of obsessive thinking and hurting myself and others with thoughts. I am better able to participate in the practice of ahimsa.
The Charge Activation Training has helped me piece together the overall picture of the movement/stagnation of my energy profile as well as my relationship interactions. This is a great course that is foundation material for both inner and outer interactions. Anodea Judith is a fantastic teacher — skilled, well spoken, gentle. So glad I was able to be in this course.

In my opinion as a therapist, Anodea is a master of mind/body integration work... she is as good as they come! She has taught me through her trainings the practice of witnessing/experiencing the "charge" in my life force, which has helped me to get grounded and locate the sacred space inside myself. With my clients, I am able to witness their charge, back off my agenda, and allow the intelligence of their charge to guide the way to their opening.
— Paula Weithman, Yoga Teacher & Therapist, Dallas, Texas
As both an individual and a Reiki practitioner, this course provides a wealth of information toward healing/balancing the chakras. The exercises give concrete direction toward that end as well. I learned so much about myself and have already been using what I have learned to further aid my clients. It is a richer understanding of the function that chakras provide. A very empowering course.
— Summer, Ottawa, Canada
My prayer when I signed up for your course was that I call my life-force back to myself, learn to circulate it more skillfully so I can heal, and bring my FULL self into the world with joy, freedom and creativity. This prayer is being realized with every interaction. Thank you so much. I'm very thankful that Spirit brought me to you and your work.
— Phillipa Leonard, Australia

Q: What is a virtual course?
A: It’s a great way to engage live teachings and each other from the comfort of your home! All you need is a phone line (or an equivalent voice service). If there is more than one person in your household taking the course, you will each need your own line. We use MaestroConference to make it just like an in-person event, where you can ask questions, participate in groups, and deepen your exploration of the course themes.
Please note that dialing MaestroConference from your phone is a regular toll call to California; your telephone service provider will charge you according to your existing long-distance calling plan. Other options include calling cards and discount long-distance carriers. You can also use Skype to connect to MaestroConference at no charge, and we offer a webcast which is free to use from anywhere in the world.
I have never participated before in an online course. The packaging, presentation, inclusion and Facebook postings created a wonderful, safe cocoon to participate. I haven’t seen a course so well put together ever — not in all the years of taking college classes — and I had my doubts about doing an online course. The wealth of organization and ease of learning materials and support made this fun as well.
– Claudia F., Medford, MA
