The Five Elements brings the wisdom of an ancient healing system to modern readers, helping them understand themselves—why they do what they do—better.
Dondi Dahlin 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 over 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.

I have been an acupuncturist working professionally with five element theory for over ten years. This book is spot on, informative and enjoyable! This book brought some life and relatability to the elements- had great personal examples and tools to help you identify and nourish your particular dominant element. I actually got this on audible first as a fun listen and liked it so much I bought the printed copy. This book is great for professionals, their clients and people interested in bringing balance into their lives.
I still will leave 5 stars, bs I enjoyed listening, but I wish the elements quizzes were attached so I can go back and do the quizzes and find out which one is the strongest one. I purchased an audio book and I am listening it while driving my car, and cannot do the quizzes while driving. So now, I have to purchase the paper copy.I also love how Dondi reads it, love to listen to her voice. She is awesome.
This book is both informative and entertaining. Understanding the five elements provide a deeper understanding of people and their personalities.
tremendous amount of knowledge in a well paced read
Ancient Chinese concept. Defines what type or type combo we are and more importantly how to understand what makes other people who are not your type tick.
