Welcome to the start of a five-part series of “Five Elements Chi Kung Transmissions,” facilitated by Tessy Bardavid: free seasonal sessions supporting the integration of Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water, the Chinese/Taoist Five Elements system. In the sea of energy that is the universe, the elements are a metaphor (for the processes of nature, the cosmos, and the human body, mind, and spirit), expressing the interconnectedness of those energies.
The Taoist description of the Five Elements Generating Cycle of nature's pattern in which these elements feed, enhance, and support each other is:
- Water flows down the mountain to be absorbed by plants and trees (Wood), causing them to grow upwards towards the light in the sky.
- Eventually, Fire consumes the woodlands, releasing the energy in a blazing inferno of pure unbridled energy.
- The fire creates ash, which settles into the ground to fertilize the soil, enhancing Earth. Bacteria and fungi in the soil synthesize life-supporting minerals (Metal).
- Over a more extended period, the soil is compressed into stone, eventually crystals, gems, and mineral deposits (Metal, Metal, and Metal).
- Through underground springs and waterways, and topsoil washing into rivers, lakes and oceans after rainfall, these minerals are absorbed into Water, thereby vitalizing and enhancing Water.
- This enriched Water is then absorbed by plants (Wood), and the whole cycle starts again.
Water represents winter. Plants and animals move downwards and inwards to hibernate and conserve energy. Seeds remain hidden in the ground, awaiting the perfect moment to awaken.
Wood represents spring when plants and seedlings push through the snow and dirt to meet the light. There is an expansion of energy upwards and outwards. There is a newness to the world, and fresh energy and life are everywhere.
In the summer, symbolized by fire, nature is alive with energy and activity. The sun is the brightest, and the days are the longest.
This is called "Indian Summer," which is the season of the earth element. Here, nature is the most stable. The weather is fair, and the food is abundant. There is a sense of peace and contentment. Sometimes Earth is also seen as the time between seasons.
In the fall, the time of metal, nature begins to cool down. Trees lose their leaves, and animals store food and fat reserves for the winter. Here, life begins to condense, holding on to only what is necessary to survive and letting go of all the rest.
The Taoist Five Elements, natural forces, and basic energetic patterns are seen to underlie the universe's workings and provide a beautiful framework for understanding the workings of ourselves and our relationship to the world around us.
- Promote the health, harmony and longevity of the physical & subtle bodies through the practice of Chi Kung & the 5 Elements;
- Benefit from an integrated alignment with the natural seasons to bring about new levels of well-being;
