Live the seasons in harmony, the Chinese wisdom tradition way.
This comprehensive guide introduces the philosophical and practical principles of the Five Elements, and invites you to immerse yourself in the many aspects of each Element during its corresponding season. It offers a range of hands-on methods, including activities such as movement, cooking, gardening, journaling, visualization, meditation, dialogue and self- acupressure, to improve your physical health, foster mental ease, and create emotional balance. In working with each Element, you will begin to explore the three levels or expressions of human life — the physical (structures, organs, tissues and systems), the psycho-emotional (thoughts, beliefs, self-images, emotions and reactions) and spirit, as well as the connections between them.
