The Key to an Empowered Life

  • There are 5 core causes of illness and suffering, 5 causes of dynamic health and an empowered, luminous mind.
  • 5 Element Energy Healing uses form, light and sound to change deep-seated imbalances and obstacles.
  • From the ancient wisdom of Tibet and India to the mystery schools of Pythagoras, 5 Element work is a focused, accurate, yet gentle form of energy healing that works directly with the fundamental building blocks of body and mind.
Dr. Asa has 40 years of experience as an energy healer, having developed sensitivity to the messages embedded within human energy fields. These messages give vital clues to the physical, emotional and spiritual causes of illness and suffering. Through long training in Tibetan meditation and other disciplines, he has developed an elegant and powerful energy healing method, a fusion of ancient practices, modern medical and contemporary psychology. This involves the five core energies that underly our body, our mind, and the very universe we inhabit.

The Power of the Five


Our health is an expression of the integrity and balance of the 5 primary forces from which it is built, and illness is an expression of distortion or disharmony in these 5 core elements. Ancient techniques of working with the Elements are important for any illness, prevention and longevity.


Our Pentad Mind has five aspects which are the source of all our good qualities, character and inner power—and from which all deficiency, suffering, and negativity arise. Understanding and working with our psychological Elements is a rapid to bringing the mind back to its original purity and  brilliance.


All spiritual change, development, transformation is, at its core, the purification of the 5 core elements, that are transformed into the original purity of the 5 Wisdom Elements. This is the basis of the Light Body, and small mind uniting with Ultimate Mind, in its 5-fold expression.


By changing ourselves, each individually, the world around us responds differently, and begins to shift and change. The real path to success in our career, relationships, and material security, is an expression of the harmonious balance of our 5-elements. And so peace and happiness on a global scale begins on this level.

The 5 Wisdoms system brings together the Elemental knowledge and practices that have been scattered across time and culture, with a special focus on transformation methods of Tibetan Buddhism. An integration bioenergy medicine, biophysics, ancient meditative science and cutting edge psychology, it allows us to access these basic building blocks of experience through color, sound, light and creative thought. The six modules below offer a sequential path to Elemental mastery, a journey of body, mind and spirit that compliments every other kind of medicine or self-care.
