In the first video, he compares the similarities between the contemporary phase theory of matter (solid, liquid, gas, warmth) and and the older element theory (earth, water, air, fire).

Part 2: Gravity and Levity

In the second video, he compares the introduces the concepts of gravity and levity and describes how they affect the interactions of the four elements.

Part 3: What is tempering?

In the third video, he teaches us about the process of tempering, which allows us to “balance” different forces in the elemental mandala. This tempering is the root of our understanding about the temperaments and how we can use that in healing.

Part 4: Reciprocals in the dynamic between fixed states 

In the fourth video, he introduces the reciprocating forces that create the dynamics across the elemental mandala.

Part 5: Salt and Sulfur
