What is this?

A subtle body is a form of energy body present in various esoteric and spiritual teachings, focusing on the body’s complex system of energy pathways, chakras, and fields. It is said to be the bridge between the physical and spiritual worlds and is comprised of multiple layers—the physical body, energy body, mental body, emotional body, and spiritual body. These layers not only affect the physical body, but also our thoughts, feelings, behaviors and wellbeing. The subtle body is believed to be composed of an intelligent and conscious energy, with each layer interacting and influencing the other. Thus, a balanced and healthy subtle body is essential if we want to be happy and healthy from the inside out.
