Banyen's Description: 

In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) philosophy, the elements Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water are the foundation of how nature grows and evolves. They are believed to help us understand everything from illness and healing to the fundamental processes of child development—and they continue to inform Chinese medicine practice today. But as Ayurvedic nutritionist, reiki master, and Tournesol founder Carey Davidson demonstrates in this book, each of the five elements can also be seen as a personality archetype—and inside all of us is a unique blend of these archetypes that serves as a window into living a more fulfilling life on every level.

In The Five Archetypes, Davidson explains that by knowing the personality traits associated with each type and using what she calls the Five Archetypes method, you can actually start to predict your behavioral patterns—not only with yourself but also with your friends, your romantic partner, your children, and even your colleagues. By practicing this method, you will also:

  • Learn how to exercise more control over behaviors that thwart your potential
  • Hone your self-awareness and self-regulation skills in the face of day-to-day stress
  • And understand what really makes people tick, so that you spend less time in stagnant relationships and more time in gratifying ones.

Through her study of the elements and the observations she’s made in her work with individuals, couples, companies, parents, kids, and educators, Davidson has created a simplified and practical guide to harnessing the strengths of our five archetypes. Complete with an assessment designed to help you discover your primary, secondary, and lowest types, The Five Archetypes will not only teach you more about yourself and others but also transform your relationships and set you on the path to personal and interpersonal harmony.

“Completely [changed] the way I consider people who stress me out or rub me the wrong way or just see the world differently than I do.... [The Five Archetypes] is fascinating—and Davidson is brilliant.... Read the book, mull it over, and prepare to have your mind blown.” —Megan O'Neill, Goop
