on the handout included with fusion one home study describes two methods, yin and yang, for transmuting negativity. It seems the yin method is covered in the audio, the yang method as described in the handout is not. It says “see the golden pearl inside the pattern, expand it outward, dissolve until neutralized”. Does this mean expand the pearl, the pattern, or both maybe? To what extent does it expand? What does “dissolve until neutralized” imply?
I have been using the yin method with good results. Now I am going through some anger and wonder if I should change my method.

I think there is a little bit of confusion with respect to the handout.
On the second page of the handout, he begins describing the yin practice (listed as item #4), which is covered in the course. On the *back* of the last page (listed as item #7), he describes the yang practice, which is the spinning bagua practice, i.e. a variant of the classical Fusion 1 scheme. That should also have been covered in the course as well, and on the audio.
What you are referring to a discussion of one of the subitems in item #6, which is really neither of these practices, but is a miscellaneous collection of other emotional tools which can be other minor things to try.
He is referring to specific examples of fear/anger using a particular trick. He calls the “fear trick” to be yin and “anger trick” to be yang. But this particular technique is really separate from the yin practice and yang practice of Fusion 1.
In any case, the essence of this specialized trick (for anger) is to expand the feeling in size so that it becomes less concentrated and can dissolve. The qi ball is sitting inside the feeling so it forms an anchor to absorb the dissipated feeling.
In any case, this is just one particular trick that can be used to resolve anger. It’s not a “main practice” of the course.
The main practice of the course is basically the spinning bagua practice.
But anyway I digress.
My apologies if this is not clear, but Fusion is complicated enough where it would take almost an entire detailed lecture/workshop to clarify, so I hope you can understand me. 🙂
As to your comment about doing a practice “with good results”, then if whatever you’ve been doing has been successful for you, by all means, keep doing it! 🙂
Sorry about your anger. Hope you can resolve it.
Smiling to it sometimes works as well.
Or a brisk walk to help the liver qi to move.

Got it. Thanks. Yes, that makes sense. What I’ve been calling “yin practice” is the main process described under #6 in the handout, but now I gather that it is not in any sense reserved for yin issues. And I recognize the expansion “trick” from the audio, though I didn’t initially make that connection to handout.
