Psychology of the Five Elements I

An exploration of the Law of the Five Elements and the classical medicine System of Kings, which originated in China more than five thousand years ago. The ancient Chinese viewed our body, mind, and spirit as inseparable from the world of nature around us and believed that if we observed nature closely enough, we could find the cause of any affliction of body, mind, or spirit. Through lecture and discussions, meditations, visualizations, and hands-on exercises, we work directly with our sense perceptions and the techniques of identifying color, sound, odor, and emotion as tools to perceive elemental balance or imbalance. We work directly with our current state of physical, mental, and spiritual health.
