Elemental Healing: A 5-Element Path for Ancestor Connection, Balanced Energy, and an Aligned Life (Hardcover)
According to Taoist philosophy, every body--not to mention everything in the cosmos--possesses quantities of the five elements: Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, and Wood. Each element has an emotional component (water, for example, is associated with fear), a meridian in the body that can be worked on through somatic exercises like massage, and a moral imperative. Camellia Lee, an energy worker with a family lineage of healing going back generations to Taiwan, explains elements of Taoist philosophy, traditional Chinese medicine, and other related studies through the lens of the Five Elements in an easy-to-understand and enjoyable way. This is a Five-Element plan--with plenty of exercises for introspection, healing, and enlightenment--that anyone can commit to in order to restore order to their bodies, minds, and spirits.
