Mantak Chia's book, 'Fusion of the Five Elements' provides readers with powerful meditation and energy working tools for transforming the top five negative emotions (anger, impatience, anxiety, depression, and stress) stored in five of our body's main organs into their most positive counterparts (kindness, love & joy, openness, courage and gentleness). While the basic Taoist principles behind this healing process may seem straightforward to some, the techniques themselves are refreshingly unique and memorable, such as breathing the purest form of gentleness into the shape of beautiful deer with antlers, for example. Chia explains that since the original Taoist animal offspring utilized in energy work for clearing the five elements / organs might seem rather unusual in this day and age, it is possible to substitute other symbols in their stead. The delightful surprise in 'Fusion of the Five Elements' is the way the range of feelings from each of five major organs (liver, heart, lungs, kidneys, spleen) is described, along with marvelous tables and illustrations that accompany the energy work meditations. I was very positively impressed with the associations provided with how good awareness between each of these five primary organs and the associated opening (eyes, tongue, nose, ears, mouth) can help to reduce the various temptations of each of these areas. Readers familiar with the concept of the five elements will find much to appreciate in this book, as many of the advanced exercises have the capacity to benefit all energy practitioners, from beginners to the most advanced. 'Fusion of the Five Elements' covers Chia's concept of creating pearls that form the energy body extremely well. Anyone wishing to continue on with Chia's other books will appreciate the clarity of his words and illustrations which are devoted to describing how one can best create, maintain, and control one's chi body as it evolves to his highest form.
