Banyen's Description: 

Here is a comprehensive and practical guide to using the Five Element model in your daily life in ways that can improve your physical health, foster mental ease and clarity, create more emotional balance, and bring you closer to spirit.

Having introduced the philosophical and practical principles of the Five Elements, the author invites you to “live the book,” immersing yourself in the many aspects of each Element during its corresponding season. He offers a range of methods of doing this, including activities such as movement, cooking, gardening, journaling, visualization, meditation, dialogue and self-acupressure. In working with each Element, he explores 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 the spirit.

Detailed information is provided on each Element's specific attributes, associations, resonances and gifts, and anatomical illustrations are included for further guidance. An invaluable reference book for practitioners and students of Chinese Medicine who hope to become better practitioners to others, the book also provides the means to become a practitioner to yourself.

“The author blends Five Element theory and the modern psycho-spiritual wisdom of the Diamond Approach into valuable advice for staying healthy during the seasons. He presents activities, diet and contemplations that enhance specific aspects of body/mind/spirit—what the author calls Soul—for each element. This is a warm, insightful and excellent book.” —Ronald Davis, author of Qigong Through the Seasons

John Kirkwood has been working, living and playing with the Five Elements for over 30 years.
