and what that means

                                                         This page is a work in progress!

The five elements are deeply woven into the fabric of Asian culture. The five elements theory is the foundation of Asian disciplines such as fung shui, martial arts and the I Ching (The Book of Changes). The five elements are a comprehensive template that organizes all-natural phenomena into five patterns in nature. Each of the five groups are called Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water. All these groups contain a direction, climate, are related to the internal organs, emotions, taste, color, sound…. They provide a blueprint of how nature interacts with the body and how all things are interconnected. They show us how the systems of our bodies are connected to each other and how we are connected to our environment. Within the structure of the five elements there are two relationships: generation and support. When speaking about generation, it means a relationship that nurtures and promotes growth. Here you can take a deep dive into what this means.
