5 Element Workshop

  • Essencia Wellness Center 1026 College Ave Wheaton, IL 60187 (map)

The 5 Element idea is the very foundation of Chinese Medicine. I like to think about it as a container, maybe a circle. Each element - Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, being stations on the round continuum.  This paradigm is a way to observe how matter is moved by energy.  

Matter is defined as that which occupies space, but it could also mean a situation, a circumstance or a happening. Energy is the force which animates matter, brings it to life, moves it, transforms it!

 You may realize how you have seen this cycle of energy in the seasons of the year. We will look at how this cycle of energy moves through our body in a 24 hour segment. In this workshop we will explore the different qualities and textures of this energy through lecture, breathe and movement to fully embody all 5 Elements.
