Students experience elements of life wisdom
"With air and ether, I felt I was embracing Love with my open arms and thanking the universe for opening another door into this beautiful world."
Dila Asimova, Hawaii

"Ether vibrated throughout my entire being as my cellular being sang with the miracle of all that is and ever will be. I felt the earth, the planets, the cells in my body as awareness, fully aware and awake. I played the harp of the universe. Truth echoes in my bones to my very being and I am blessed to receive it"

"I am loved by the universe. I am a being of feeling and love. I am infinite. I no longer have to hide who I am. I breathe in the highest essence of me."
The Elements of Life are an honored part of all systems of medicine from the beginning of time except for modern scientific medicine.The Elements of Life – earth, water, air, fire and ether are the energies weaving our inner ecology and the outer ecology of the world that sustains us. Our choices create balance or imbalances in our inner ecology according to our choices.

The elements connect us deeply with the chakra energy systems, our physical body systems and organs and their emotional resonances of fear or courage, desire and lust, the many aspects of anger and resentment, speed and greed and either grief for temporary worldly attachments or spiritual longing.

Our senses of smell, and the five tastes of sweet, salt, spice, sour and bitter, together with sight, touch and hearing weave connections with elemental zones and meridians on the feet, hands and head with reflexology and zone therapy.

The elements welcome us into the mystery of life as gifts that assist us in daily life as wisdom teachers and practitioners. Elemental processes offer uniquely different healing experiences for each person. Dive deeply into the movements and discover who you truly are. Experience embodied wisdom. Receive evolutionary transformation. Access Self Healing. Know Thyself.

Elemental teachings offer gifts that assist positive consciousness while moving through the events and challenges of daily life.

As a practitioner, healer and educator the elements enhance professional understanding of how the elements participate as living evolving energies within you and within nature, plant, foods and the world that surrounds us with life sustaining gifts.

Clothing choices contribute color magic energetics: Saturday earth red, Sunday water orange, Monday fire yellow, Tuesday air green and ether turquoise.

Bring yoga mats, shawls and blankets for our morning sessions.
