EᒪEᗰEᑎTᗩᒪ ᑭOTIOᑎ  

THE FIVE ELEMENTS (ᗰETᗩᒪ, ᗯᗩTEᖇ, ᗯOOᗪ, ᖴIᖇE, EᗩᖇTᕼ) are the underlying energies that comprise all things...



Also called the Five Movements, their dynamic interactions form the universal order, generating the cycle of the seasons along with corresponding colors, flavors, sounds, the organs + tissues of our bodies, and even our temperaments + emotions. There is no distinction between body/mind. Matter is not fixed. Everything is movement.
  
Healing may then be envisioned as the harmonious dance
of these five elemental energies. 

 
 
  



We created the EEETᗩᒪ OTIO series to acknowledge + celebrate + balance the needs and experiences unique to each season. We offer each formula as a shared ritual— harmonizing collective consciousness with the cyclical passage of time, witnessed by plant + human community.  

  

To dive deeper into the EEETᗩᒪ framework with seasonal writings, recipes, somatic meditations + collective discussion to accompany each formula, along with a subscriber's discount, join our growing community on Patreon.

In Spring, we load the bow, draw it tight + aim with precision. As Summer emerges, we become the arrow— releasing into freedom 

lusciously  inert    thrown 

to a swell of plans

surprising wild

into flesh open petals

rollercoaster screams 

a firework 

blooming helplessly

causing a scene

oops and 100% sure

been cooped up for so long it 

feels so good you know

to just let go and see

feel whatever happens

 

 

This year's Fire Potion is a catalyst for reckless, untempered joy + warmth + expression, and a good luck charm.

To be used in ritual work + meditation + whenever in daily life (not too close to bedtime).

 

 

like a sweet-apple
turning red
high
on the tip
of the topmost branch
forgotten by pickers
not forgotten
they couldn’t reach it

The Cosmos was not made by gods
but always was and is eternal Fire.

PEOPLE + PLANTS ARE COMPLEX. 

YOUR RESPONSE TO DIFFERENT PLANTS, IN DIFFERENT AMOUNTS, WILL BE UNIQUE.

LISTENING AND ADJUSTING TO YOUR RESPONSE IS VITAL TO ALL ASPECTS OF YOUR CARE. 

While complications from working with herbs + speculative interactions between herbs + drugs are sometimes publicized, confirmed cases are rare.

This might feel complicated, and that’s OK. :~)
