Seven Chakra Gardens

Tune in and hear the whisperings of Pachamama (Mother Earth) in Willka T’ika’s renowned Seven Chakra Gardens.

Each garden contains symbols, shapes, sculptures, and medicinal plants that resonate with one of the classic seven chakras, or energy centers, of the human body. The vibrant flowers blooming in each garden are of the particular color associated with that chakra, flooding your eyes with the hue. Both the wavelengths of light and the vibrations of the flowers themselves offer peaceful healing energy to the mind, body, and soul.

In the crown chakra garden, a thousand-year-old Lucuma Tree connects guests to the energy and wisdom of the ancient Incan civilization. The grassy area beneath the Lucuma Tree is a perfect place for meditation. Winding paths lead from one garden to the other, reminding us to slow down and enjoy the journey.

In the third-eye chakra garden, the Grand Spiral Walk helps you align with the powerful Sacred Valley energies. Walking the Spiral is an experience in releasing unwanted energies, as well as opening the third eye chakra to deeper intuition, higher reflection, greater awareness, and overall wellness.

The gardens heal and balance by encouraging a direct connection to the wisdom of Nature. Walk, meditate, write, paint, or simply relax in the chakra garden of your choice.

Willka T’ika’s Seven Chakra Gardens were a labor of love, which you can read more about in our founder Carol Cumes’ book Chakra Gardens: Opening the Senses of the Soul (see below).
