What is Sen Kalathari?

Sen Kalathari begins one thumb width above the navel and ends at the tips of the fingers and toes.

Sen Kalathari is the fourth of ten Sen in the Sen Sib, consisting of one major and three minor lines. Sen Kalathari, often referred to as the emotional and psychic line or the psychological and spiritual Sen, corresponds to the motion of the limbs. It is linked to the elements of Fire and Wind and is primarily connected to the heart, although numerous abdominal organs relate to this Sen.

Major Line: The major line begins one thumb width above the navel and divides into two branches on the inside of the arms and two on the inside of the legs. Passes from the navel through the abdominal and chest regions across the nipples to the shoulders at the hollow below the end of the clavicle, then travels down the inside middle lines of the arms into the hands, into the palms of the hands to the tips of all the fingers. The leg branches of the sen travel out from the navel across the inguinal region, descend along the inside of the legs along line 2 to the feet, and end at the tips of all the toes.
Minor Line 1: The first minor line starts at the shoulder points in the front, then crosses the collarbone up the sides of the neck to the outside corner of the eyes.
Minor Line 2: The second minor line starts at the extra point in front of the heel and then travels around the outside of the feet to ST41. Five lines go down to each of the toes. The other line travels up along outside line 2 on the legs to point 2 of the buttocks, then up line 2 on the back past C7 to line 2 on the head. From here, the line circles over the ear to the outside corner of the eyebrows.
Minor Line 3: The third minor line starts at the top of line 2 on the back and goes down the centre of the back of the arms to SJ4 in the wrist. From here, five lines branch out on each side to the tips of each finger.
