Pneuma (Gk) means spirit | psyche (Gk) means soul Chakra healing and light worker reiki prana yoga therapy school training and certification
Pneuma is the ancient Greek word for spirit. This is the word used by Greek philosophers (Plato, Socrates, Aristotle, etc.) and spiritual leaders (Jesus, Philo of Alexandria, etc.) to speak of spirit. The Greek word for soul is psyche, the root of the word psychotherapist and psychology. This is a misnomer because these disciplines do not believe in the soul.
