The Earth Element: Ground and Integrate in Body and Mind (In-Person/Online)
June 11 - June 12
A Personal Invitation From B.K. Frantzis
Recognizing, Contacting and Balancing the Energy of Earth
Who couldn’t use a bit more stability in their lives? A feeling of being grounded and integrated in mind and body can do wonders for a person, both in their worldly and spiritual endeavors.
The Earth Element is responsible for generating stability while integrating the various aspects of ourselves into one coherent whole. Earth joins and unifies all the other Elements–Water, Fire, Wood, Metal–and combines them into a powerful, coherent, well-functioning system.
The energy of Earth, as distinct from the other four elements, is both yin and yang. The core expands and radiates out, while the crust condenses and draws in. The result of these two forces is balance, which unifies the Earth, and brings forth cohesion and stability.
Taoist Five Element practices move beyond the external manifestations of the elements, teaching practitioners to recognize and contact the elemental qi within.
Earth qi is responsible for the cohesiveness of all that is within us. By recognizing this integrated aspect of ourselves, we are able to tap into the understanding of the true non-difference in all things, and move closer toward wholeness.
These lessons have benefited my own life beyond measure, and I’m looking forward to sharing them so that they can do the same for you.
You have my warmest invitation to join us, and I hope to see you in the workshop.
Master B.K. Frantzis

Ground and Stabilize
Earth Element practices are grounding and stabilizing. Instilling these qualities in body and mind establishes the ability to generate physical continuity, stillness of mind and steady emotions. Clear meditative states are much easier to achieve through mastery of the earth element.
The strength of the earth element inside of you relates directly to the ability to integrate all of your body parts and the parts of your mind. So the Earth Element is very necessary in order to make physical and energetic connections not only inside your own body, but also to everything all around it.
In order for people to have long term relationships of any kind, stability is necessary. The earth element is what settles and congeals everything that’s inside you and is an important component in the ability to have successful, harmonious, on-going relationships.
Earth element practices successfully deal with the stress and anxiety of living in the modern age. Any degree to which the earth element inside you is smoother and more connected enhances your ability to handle external forces of any kind.
Becoming more in contact with the energies of Earth can have a direct impact on your ability to link to the planet on which you live. Working with Earth Element can give you a very strong sense of how to work with the effects of gravity and the ability to see things as they exist over time.
