"Subtle Energy: A Handbook of Psychic Energy Manipulation" by Keith Miller (2nd edition)

"Informational chapters describe the recent history of subtle energy work since the 1900s that has brought us to where we are today. You will learn about the nature of the energy body, chakras, and the aura that we all possess. Additional chapters provide information on how to use psychic ability to interface with other magical or occult systems, including elemental magic, personal alchemy, and ritual magic. A Hermetic philosophical framework allows for easy integration with other Western magical systems. A discussion of elements, both Eastern and Western, provides a framework for integrating even into some Eastern forms of magic.

This book is aimed for the beginner or intermediate practitioner of subtle energy and psychic ability. It looks to provide a solid foundation for continued study into more advanced topics through specific psychic approaches, without relying on overly simplified visualization techniques. But even experienced practitioners or teachers may gain new perspectives and insights into how the subtle body functions and how this functioning results in many experiences common to beginning energy workers."
