Spirituality is a broad concept with room for many perspectives. In general, it includes a sense of connection to something bigger than ourselves, and it typically involves a search for meaning in life. As such, it is a universal human experience—something that touches us all. People may describe a spiritual experience as sacred or transcendent or simply a deep sense of aliveness and interconnectedness. Source

Like Kelly Solloway’s Yoga Anatomy Coloring Book, I think this subtle body book is great and really helpful. I’ve been teaching yoga and been interested in the energetic body for a long time – this coloring book brings it to life in a way that’s clarifying, informative and fun. Since using it, I feel more secure in my knowledge of the components & systems of the subtle body, in both general and specific ways. I recommend it for anyone who’s fascinated in or is required to learn the body’s energetic structures and systems.K. Labidi has this to say about the book

What a fantastic book! This was a gift however I couldn’t resist having a peek through the pages. The pages are of great quality, the illustrations are beautiful and the descriptions and wording of each chakra is wonderful, as are the activities. Highly recommend for those who are interested in meditation, chakras, crystal healing etc, whether they are a beginner or seasoned pro!
