Understand Yourself and Enhance Your Relationships with the Wisdom of the World’s Oldest Personality Type System!
by Dondi Dahlin
Are you are interested in what makes people tick? Do you want more ease with your relationships? The Five Elements is for you!
In this book, Dondi Dahlin, Donna Eden’s daughter, shows us that we are all born with individual rhythms that go beyond the influence of our genes and upbringing.
The Five Elements originated in ancient Chinese medicine 2,000 years ago–when scholars theorized that the universe is composed of five forces: water, wood, fire, earth, and metal. Understanding these elements helps us stay in balance physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally. By explaining the efficacy of wood, the depth of water, the joy of fire, the compassion of earth, and the wisdom of metal, this book helps people understand themselves and form lasting connections to others, answering the age-old question of why we do what we do.
