The Essenes were a Jewish sect during the Second Temple period that flourished from the 2nd century BCE to the 1st century CE – and best known today in relation to the Dead Sea Scrolls.
What's not so well known is that the Essenians, like the Ancient Egyptians, had mastered the art of the energetic therapies. After being hidden for thousands of years, their knowledge is coming back today in response to our society's profound need to once again find deep roots and dimensions.

1) How does the Essenian Tradition describe the Body of Light? How does the energy field present itself in and around the body?
First, you need to know that the Essenian Tradition stems from the Esoteric Tradition. This was only transmitted orally. We can’t find any text or outlines from this field.The Essenian insiders assumed that the Body of Light was not one but multiple—namely, it was made with a number of “luminous layers,” each one being an expression of the reality of being. For them, the Body of Light in its whole was not the consequence of the material body but rather at the origin of it. If a person assimilated the Body of Light into the soul, it was said that for them, the soul preexisted the flesh body. This means that they thought of the flesh as an extension, a declension of the densest of the primal, luminous reality. They also established a very clear distinction between the body of the soul itself and its emanations—what we call today the different layers of the aura.
In this sense, according to the Essenian understanding of things, the luminous body and its radiations were carriers of the truth of being. They translated—or betrayed—the state of health of the soul. It was at this level that the Essenians endeavored to work based on the principle that all physical disorders are almost inevitably the direct consequence of dysfunctions of the soul.
