The Chakra is a spinning vortex of energy created within ourselves by
the interpenetration of consciousness and the physical body.

The word Chakra come from the Sanskrit word meaning "wheel" or "disk"

Kundalini is a concept often spoke of in relation to the Chakras.  
Mythologically, Kundalini is a serpent Goddess at the base of the spine,
coiled 3/12 times around the first Chakra, awaiting unfoldment. When
She is awakenend through any number of  techniques, she unfolds and
rises through the center of the body, piercing and awakening each
Chakra as She goes.  When she has risen to the top, or crown, then all
the Chakras have been openend and a person is said to experience
enlightenment.
