Review by James A. Cox, Editor-in-Chief, Midwest Book Review
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.
The Great Book of Essenian and Egyptian Therapies is the produce of many years of research and practice, the result of which is the most complete set of Essenian techniques and perceptions of the human being subtle anatomy ever collected. The authors, Daniel Meurois and his wife, Marie Johanne Croteau, intend the book as an especially well illustrated, clear and precise teaching tool.
All those who are interested in health and the harmonious balance of the being will appreciate The Great Book of Essenian and Egyptian Therapies because of its exciting content and training in terms of both the horizons it opens, and its practical-side, coupled with the reconciliatory philosophy that emerges. Therapists and students in energetic therapies will discover a pleasant user-friendly manual rich in working techniques and innovative elements designed to develop their practice.
Through its approach (based on the Archetypes and symbols that touch on the physical, subtle, psychological and spiritual dimensions of the being, and through its information on combining the internal development and global health of the organism) The Great Book of Essenian and Egyptian Therapies offers everyone new avenues of growth and harmony. More than ever, the reader as the practitioner will be brought to understand the marvelous relationship unifying human being (body, soul and spirit) with the force of Universal Life, the Divine that includes everything.
