Feng Shui & Vital Design
Intuitive Feng Shui® is more than the art of placement: it is the deep, ancient understanding of our outer & inner environment. This body of knowledge rests on common sense and awareness of “chi” -- the invisible life force that permeates consciousness and matter -- from the microcosm of cellular organisms to the macrocosm of constellations. The first, opening talk reviews its origins and applications in everyday life with practical recommendations for everyone.
Feng Shui & Health
Intuitive Feng Shui® encompasses a substantive exploration of the fundamental nature of body and mind. Since both health and disease are mirrored in environments, each aspect of our dwellings supports or diminishes vitality and well-being. Beyond wind chimes and water fountains, learn what you can do to make a difference in your own life and immediate environment through an understanding of feng shui as it relates to health; specific conditions will be discussed.
Feng Shui: the Inner World
The final talk is an in-depth journey through the inner world of the bagua – the rich, symbolic construct of consciousness employed in Intuitive Feng Shui®. By carefully examining each area’s psychological meaning, participants will discover ways to achieve harmony in their own lives by uncovering what is necessary to remove obstructions as well as any harmful, fixed patterns of behavior. The result reveals a grand, unified whole -- and a luminous path to love, light and inner peace.

“Although feng shui is commonly defined as the “art of placement,” its true essence is a more encompassing and substantive exploration of the fundamental nature of the energetics of consciousness. While front door and cornerstone locations are key elements to “external” feng shui, it is the architecture of consciousness that distinguishes placements which endure the test of time.” - William Spear
