The 'Clown' Chakra

Posted by on in Energy Magazine

The enthusiastic new Level 4 apprentice stopped me in the cafeteria before break­fast on the last day of class.  “Where is the ‘Clown’ chakra?,” she asked. “Some people said that you mea­sure it here [she had her hand on her head], and others said that it was here [other hand near her clavicles] at the high heart. Where is it exactly?” “Well, it’s here at your upper arm – be­cause that’s the humerus,” I replied. I didn’t understand at first that she was serious. She also didn’t get the joke.  The “clown” chakra had been mentioned in her class the previ­ous evening. Once I understood that she truly was b2ap3_thumbnail_bobo-da-corte-1079638-m.jpghaving a hard time understanding, I tried to explain in more detail.

I mailed the doll to Mary Ann as a token of my thanks to her for all that she taught me in class. I thought that perhaps she would find it funny and set it aside. Never did I dream that it would go further than that, and was honored to read in her thank-you email that she said she wanted to take the doll to future classes.

The following year, as I prepared to go to my Level 4 class, there were several significant and stressful changes in my life. I realized that I needed some humor to help me deal with things, so I found a photo I had taken of the doll, and made a T-shirt with the picture on it. I brought the shirt to my Level 4 class and wore it.

Students in my class, as well as in the Level 5 class (which Mary Ann happened to be teaching at the same location) were curious about the background story, and several said that they would like shirts or dolls. I thought about the requests, but truly didn’t have the time to create the dolls for everyone, and said so.
