WHAT ARE THE LATAIF?
The Lataif are qualities, forms of consciousness, or centers that are the first subtle or fine manifestations of Essence. The word Lataif (singular: Latifa) comes from Arabic and is defined as subtle energy. Within the Sufi tradition, it is generally agreed that there are five primary centers of perception (Lataif) associated with certain colors and locations in the body.
