This beginner’s guide is a clear and simple introduction to the seven chakra system. It would be particularly useful for anyone who enjoys yoga but is unsure about the concept of energy centres they encounter in a yoga class. Each of the chakras is introduced with descriptions of its characteristics and energy currents and then the book moves on to ways to assess the condition of your chakras by looking at personality, physical and character traits and by using a pendulum and kinesiology. Finally there are ways to heal through the chakras using various tools: essential oils, crystals and yoga postures are methods to unblock energy pathways and balance the chakras. This is a solid, good-looking book and an excellent entry point into the extensive philosophy of energy points.
