THE 5 ELEMENTS AWARENESS RETREAT 16-22 February, 2014
Philosophy regarding the primordial elements of life can be found in cultures all over the world since the ancient times. It doesn't refer only on the physical plane, but anything on any plane of existence can be said that is made of one of these elements or a combination of them.
According to this theory, the whole existence is Akasha, which can be divided into Yin and Yang in the Chinese Taoism or into the 4 elements of other philosophies such as Hermeticism, Hinduism, Buddhism and ancient Babylonian and Greek ones: Water, Fire, Earth and Air.
Above the physical plane, the energetical, mental and spiritual planes can be divided into these elements as well. An example could be the different temper types on the mental plane, described by Franz Bardon: “The choleric temper is due to the element of fire, the sanguine temper is due to the element of air, the melancholic temper is born from the water element, and the phlegmatic one is ascribed to the earthy element”. The different planes of existence are connected with each other, so for example if you want to have a more choleric temper, you can decorate your room with fire-like colours, fire images or actual fireplace, or you can meditate and transform vital energy into fire energy. In this retreat, along the usual, you can have massage with elemental oils and hermetic elemental therapy.
The individuality of this retreat consists in the additional therapies, ambience and a group lecture about the elemental philosophy and elemental meditation with further practical sessions. The legacy is aimed to align oneself with these elements into your life so that you can achieve your goals easier using meditation and analogy.
