What: In energy meditation, you focus your attention on a subtle energy (like chi or prana), or on a subtle energy center (like the chakras).

Types: Chakra meditation (in the yoga and Hindu traditions), Deepak Chopra’s Heart Sutra Meditation, qigong and tai chi meditations, and Donna Eden's energy medicine.

Benefits: In Secrets of Meditation, author and meditation teacher davidji writes that energy meditations open and align your energy centers and “activate the body’s natural healing properties,” so “the energy effortlessly flows through you on a journey of reawakening your wholeness.” 

Donna Eden describes energy medicine as harnessing and directing your body's natural healing energy for optimal health and vitality.

Keywords: subtle, imaginative, energetically healing
