THE FIVE ELEMENTS (ᗰETᗩᒪ, ᗯᗩTEᖇ, ᗯOOᗪ, ᖴIᖇE, EᗩᖇTᕼ) are the underlying energies that comprise all things...
Also called the Five Movements, their dynamic interactions form the universal order, generating the cycle of the seasons along with corresponding colors, flavors, sounds, the organs + tissues of our bodies, and even our temperaments + emotions. There is no distinction between body/mind. Matter is not fixed. Everything is movement.
Healing may then be envisioned as the harmonious dance
of these five elemental energies.
We created the EᒪEᗰEᑎTᗩᒪ ᑭOTIOᑎ series to acknowledge + celebrate + balance the needs and experiences unique to each season. We offer each formula as a shared ritual— harmonizing collective consciousness with the cyclical passage of time, witnessed by plant + human community.
To dive deeper into the EᒪEᗰEᑎTᗩᒪ framework with seasonal writings, recipes, somatic meditations + collective discussion to accompany each formula, along with a subscriber's discount, join our growing community on Patreon.
