The Subtle Body

With all that dazzling energy coming from the sun—and our bodies thus being energetic universes in themselves—here’s a book that goes into great depth on our energetic works and workings. It’s THE SUBTLE BODY: An Encyclopedia of Your Energetic Anatomy by Cyndi Dale, a huge colour illustrated $43 paperback from Sounds True.

All healers are “energetic” healers, whether they know it or not. Because every health issue has a physical and an energetic component, even a simple physical treatment like bandaging a cut also impacts the body’s spiritual, mental and emotional welfare. The Subtle Body is a comprehensive encyclopedia devoted to the critical world of our invisible anatomy, where so much of healing actually occurs.

Created for healing professionals and patients alike, this volume provides a lexicon of terms, illustrations, and detailed entries about our energetic biology and how it relates to our physical being. This invaluable information, beautifully laid out with colour illustrations, will help you enhance any form of health care, giving you the knowledge you need to develop an integrated approach for your clients’ well-being—or your own.

Compiled by energetic healer and scholar Cyndi Dale, The Subtle Body examines:
Energy-based therapy principles from the world’s healing traditions—including Ayurveda, Qigong, Reiki, Quabalah, and many more

The science of subtle anatomy: the ancient models and the newest research on the unseen fields that determine our physical condition

True integrative care: how combining Eastern energetic modalities with Western scientific rigor yields optimum results

The meridians, fields, and chakras: detailed information and diagrams about the role of these energetic structures in our overall health

The role of intention in healing: how the beliefs of a healer, patient, and everyone involved affect the outcome of a treatment.

For those who want to make the leap from being good healers to great ones, one thing is clear: we need to care for every aspect of our well-being. With The Subtle Body, practitioners and patients alike now have a resource for understanding the physical, energetic, and spiritual elements of human health—for an informed, complete approach to healing.

Cyndi Dale is also author of Advanced Chakra Healing and Advanced Chakra Wisdom (8 CDs).
