The healing chakra gardens at the Willka T’ika Garden Retreat
In the Sacred Valley of the Inca in Peru, the seven chakra gardens provide a haven of peace and joy to guests at the Willka T’ika Retreat. The gardens reflect the rich traditions of Andean culture, and generations of healing knowledge.
Carol Cumes tells the story of how she established the gardens in her new book, Chakra Gardens: Opening the Senses of the Soul. Guided by nature, she planted flowers and plants in each of the seven gardens that correspond to the major chakras of the energetic body. Readers are inspired to create their own chakra garden, wherever they live.
Proceeds from the Chakra Gardens book support The Willka T'ika Children's Fund. The fund provides school materials and more to the Andean children and their dedicated teachers in remote areas of the Peruvian Andes.
