Spiritual scholar Dale (The Subtle Body) offers a comprehensive guide for practitioners of energy healing. There's a cornucopia of healing modalities and practices, she explains, ranging from Eastern and Western medicine to field-based healing and bodywork. In part one, Dale provides an overview of energy medicine and energy anatomy to prepare the reader for serving as a subtle energy healer, either professionally or as a layperson. While multiple modalities might overwhelm novices, the author brings the concepts to life by punctuating the chapters with energy exercises or examples. Part two pivots from the inventory of healing modalities to their practical application. Dale includes tools for managing a healing practice, questions for each healer regarding his or her philosophy and approach, discussions of issues like setting and maintaining healthy boundaries with clients, and goal-setting worksheets. She shares insights from her practice as a healer, such as preferences for methods like releasing and clearing energy. Written in a clear and compassionate yet businesslike tone, this work will be a go-to guide for anyone considering energy healing as a vocation or avocation.
