Five Element Archive Books – Sampler


This booklet is a sampler for Thea Elijah’s Five Element Archive Books. The Archive Books are a six-volume set of articles and resources from Thea’s more than 30 years of experience with Chinese medicine. This sampler contains one article from each book (Water, Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Theory). We hope that this selection will give a sense of the scope and richness of the full set. These articles cover a wide terrain, including (but not limited to) discussions of medicine and cosmology, the deeper meanings of specific acupuncture points, and rich descriptions of the spirit-level dynamics of herbal formulas.
