This book invites us to celebrate our strengths and work with our weaknesses by learning to identify and utilise five basic personal styles or energies. Each of the five wisdom energies is associated with particular ways of perceiving and interacting with the world and also with particular colours, elements, senses, seasons, and times of day. With easy, fun, and engaging exercises and stories, Irini Rockwell shows us how we can work with these energies in any situation.
