The 5 elements - Fire

The 5 Phases in TCM  Fire Element The heart is the centre from which we beat. The home of our emotions,the place from where we feel life, from where we feel alive!  It is the manifestation of spirit (Shen) within matter (Jing) that propels our energetic life force, our bioelectricity (Qi) around the body via the blood that it pumps.  And just like the fire element which it embodies, the energy of the heart can be both transformational and destructive, it can burn bright or it can burn out, it can be beautifully enigmatic or rampage ferociously out of control…, it can leave you feelingRead More →

Wood phase – TCM & The 5 Elements   Like the Spring winds that spread the seeds from the blossoming flowers in order that more growth may occur, the Wood element represents all that is moving, developing and outwardardly expanding. A tree is firmly rooted into the earth yet at the same time flexible, with its swaying branches carving their own unique path to the heavens, allowing its fresh green leaves to reach for the sun and be rustled by the winds of change.   It is in this phase of the Chinese Wu Xing cycle that the seeds of creativity that came into beingRead More →

The 5 Elements and Yin Yoga The five phases, also known as the five elements, or Wu Xing, are the representation of how Qi moves throughout the body in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

When Qi is travelling freely the 5Read More →

The 5 Elements in TCM: Water Do you have the patience to wait until your mud settles and the water is clear.

Water is considered the most Yin of all the elements and can beRead More →
