The Tibetan Five Element practices are ancient shamanistic techniques designed to balance, enrich and heal the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual body, from the inside out.
Each element is an antidote to the “root cause” of most illness and dysfunction of body, mind, and spirit. The root cause of illness in Tibetan medicine stem from what are referred to as “the five root poisons of human emotion”.
The five root poisons are anger, attachment, pride, jealousy and ignorance, which give rise to over 84,000 different kinds of afflicted emotions. Unaddressed, these emotional energies become “toxic” and literally create poisons in the body, which can contribute to physical, mental and emotional illnesses.
Western scientific studies on the biochemical relationship of stress and health further validate this ancient science. In fact, The American Medical Association has noted that stress is the basic cause of more than 60 percent of all human illness and disease. A typical stress reaction, which is usually caused by or at least accompanied by one of these five root poisons, can set off a cascade of over 1,400 biochemical reaction in the body. These biochemical reactions to stress have been shown to suppress immune functioning, increase inflammation, increase chances of heart disease and heart attacks, increase anxiety, depression and emotional disorders, and contribute to many other western medical disorders.
The Tibetan 5 Element Practices can be used to transform these emotional energies in the body and dissolve toxic thought patterns, and their subsequent physiological effects.
Once these root poisons are “purified” and the energy centers of the body (chakras) are healthy and balanced, the elements begin to manifest their power or “activity” in our every day lives.
