Victor Daniels has studied the chakras for decades with Tantra yoga master Sri Harish Johari, one of the principal figures who brought knowledge of the chakras to the West, and has worked closely on advancing knowledge of the chakras with the deck and book’s coauthor Kooch N. Daniels and its illustrator Pieter Weltevrede. With a Ph.D. from UCLA, he has taught psychology at Sonoma State University in California where he’s given courses that integrate understandings from Eastern and Western traditions. He has also done Tarot readings for decades.

If you’re a Tarot reader, you can probably do chakra readings with the Sacred Mysteries Chakra Oracle deck. These beautiful cards, illustrated by a world-class artist in the Indian classical tradition, are accompanied by a deeply insightful book that provides an orientation to each chakra and offers thoughts, feelings, physical connections, and awareness and spiritual insights for each card. “I was a little uneasy doing a chakra reading since all I’ve ever read is tarot cards,” said one person after giving her first chakra reading, “but the stunning imagery and card titles, and the outstanding book that comes with the deck, allowed me to slide right into them.” The book’s wealth of insights can even inform your readings with Tarot cards.
This presentation describes the chakra essentials in ways that draw from the spiritual traditions of India and a from contemporary Western psychology.
