I loved the book! I approached it with zero knowledge about chakras, curiosity and an open mind. Ely did a great job in making every chapter very relatable, clear and most of all actionable. I feel like I walk away now with a new awareness and a little tool box that will help me navigate the messiness of a human being that I am. :)

Ely Bakouche offers us a very unique exploration of the seven chakras. She breaks down an esoteric topic into a down-to-earth guide that sparks readers to explore the energy body in a way that they can access no matter their culture, background, lifestyle, or beliefs. This truly is a guide for modern yogis to touch upon a less tangible aspect of yoga and make their yoga practices much more holistic and personalized. Bakouche outlines each chakra in a way that respects traditional information on the subject while making the essence of each chakra relevant to modern practitioners. A must read for all who are interested in a meaningful approach to the chakras.

This gem by Ely Bakouche stands out as an essential and functional read for students of yoga, wellness guides, and anyone interested in exploring the depths of their inner landscape. It is down to earth, intelligent, practical, pleasant to read, and written from the heart. The guided practices are truly a gift. It is well designed and a timeless resource! It is approachable for all levels as reiki masters as well as chakra skeptics will all enjoy learning and finding unique nuggets of wisdom and beauty in this book.

An exceptional read that helps to bridge the gap between esoteric and scientific understanding, effectively merging Eastern and Western philosophies. The book reads very well and even affords the reader various exercises to help them along their journey towards acceptance, understanding and self-discovery. Always ensuring that the ideas don't alienate the reader, all examples and concepts are both highly tangible and easy to grasp. I recommend this book for anyone wishing to both deepen and strengthen their own spiritual journey; welcoming newcomers and longstanding practitioners alike!

A must-read to get to know yourself and what your mind, body, and soul need to live a joyful and fulfilling life!
I absolutely loved this book and cannot recommend it enough! Ely embarks us on a journey where she shares very vulnerably and humbly her different life experiences which helped her create this book and gives us practical tools, and prompts to explore all our chakras.
This is not just a book, it's a workbook too that gets you to take action, to reflect, and think about ways to nourish your chakras, which you probably have never thought of before (at least that was my experience!)
This is definitely a book I will come back to and use to help me when I do feel unbalanced and seek the answers that can only be found within.

I very much enjoyed this thoughtful book on the 7-chakra system! The author shares her very real questions and exploration of the chakras, always caveating her learnings with the idea that she is still learning. I found many useful ways to apply what I learned to my day-to-day life. Well written and fun to read as a simple morning meditation.
