The Elements, Earth, Air, Fire, Water and Ether comprise our physical world. The Prana of our mortal incarnation gathers them in combination while we live. They are released when our Prana can no longer hold them and then we expire. The approach of healing with the Elements seeks to bring them into balance when one or more of them are in excess or deficient. Healing in this way can apply to our physical system as well as to the way we relate with everything.
When we study the Elements as a healing modality we become aware of their presence and impact in relation with the healing event. With our intention we can then modify the alchemical soup of the system and bring about balance.
Healing with Elements is fast and impactful, though not as precise as with other contemplative forms of healing. It is used to produce quick and powerful results. Practicing this art will produce a deep knowledge of the nature of the Elements and help us to master them for the purpose of healing.
Look for the next workshop on this important modality.
Yogic tradition tells us that all consciousness that can be identified has ten bodies. It is the common denominator of all beings and collections of beings. We can approach healing in a very profound and permanent way if we recognize this and relate with the bodies in a contemplative way. Contemplating a body of an event we can find the story that holds the tendencies of the patient at a very primal level and modify it. Our workshop will address this proposition and we will practice healing using this method.
We held a Meditation and Sat Nam Rasayan® Healing Workshop with Hari Nam Singh at the Healing Heart Center in Hollywood. The topic of the workshop was Healing with the Elements.

The Elements are a system of forms that we can use in a healing relation. They are Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Ether. An assumption of using elements to heal is that any system can be described completely by the composition of elements present in the system. Our mortal incarnation can be described physically as a collection of elements held together by our prana. When the prana can no longer hold the elements together, they disperse, and we expire.
How elements are combined can describe conditions of imbalance or disease. Too much of one or more elements and a lack of others can produce a condition of imbalance in the body, in the mind, or perhaps in a relationship between a person and someone or something else. Bringing the composition of elements into balance can remove the tendency of the condition.
The way we use elements to heal is simply to include them in the healing relation. We relate with elements in the same way that we relate with the event. We find how we are affected in our perceptive field by our intention to include one or more elements. It is the same intuitive process that we use for all healing. We do not need to conceptualize nor visualize an element as an object or static property, but rather look inside our perceptive field to find how we are affected in relation with it. Those effects are the reality of the process. Any preconceptions of an element that come from outside of the experience only serve to limit the experience and dilute the effect. The use of elements has an immediate and strong impact on the healing relation. We use them to effect quick results where the precision of other contemplative forms is not required.

…since the start of the Iraq War. Last week my family listened to Rachel Maddow comment on war in our time when she visited Los Angeles. Neither a pacifist nor a war hawk, Rachel shared her thoughts on why it our nation has a propensity for engaging in perpetual war. She has written a book entitled Drift: The Unmooring of American Military Power. It is an American political history of America’s most recent wars. In her address she described her motivations for writing the book and described some aspects of its context.
Here I would like to share some highlights.
