I haven't encountered any mention of this connection in Dzogchen Community's 5 elements practice. In general the elements are linked to the 5 families and was curious if anyone knew whether these are considered linked in ChNN's 5 element practice or not. If he hasn't said anything about it, maybe we shouldn't speculate, tho we probablu will anyway, but primarily just wondering if I had just simply missed something he'd taught or whether they are simply not considered to be connected in ChNN's teachings.
On a side note, for me, the 5 elements practice is much faster at getting me to where i need to go as far as being in a meditative state. Very useful, liberating, time saving and amazing stuff.
