At the first level of alchemy, this system teaches the Fusion of the Five Elements. The five elements inside the body correspond to the vital organs that were outlined in the explanation of the Inner Smile and the Six Healing Sounds. The Fusion of the Five Elements, Part 1 practice brings the various aspects of our psychology and personality into balance and then merges them in the center. The first part of the Fusion 1 practice encourages the energy to flow in a pattern called the Creation Cycle, where each element feeds the one that comes after it in the cycle.

Was it only a dream? Was I really young once?” -Ryōkan Taigu
