Feng Shui Level 1
10 am to 3 pm     
$125 

Attract Wealth and Health
  
This first level class discusses the  two popular schools of Feng Shui, the Ba-gua School and the Compass school using the Ba-Tsai. These two schools work with space, placement and directions. The student will learn the philosophy, the techniques, cures and how to consult with a client. Practical application on floor plans will be done in class.

Feng Shui is a time honored practice that can create harmony in your life. Your surroundings can affect your energy level, health, emotions and life's synchronicity.

Feng Shui literally means "the flow of wind and water", the wind disperses the invisible life energy and the water contains it.

Good Feng Shui can create harmonious relationships, revive enthusiasm, encourage fertility, attract prosperity and success.

I can guide you to make changes in your living environment to create the harmonious energy to bring positive changes in your life.

Positive qi gently meanders while negative qi strikes quickly in straight lines.

For qi to be beneficial and nourishing, it should flow harmoniously, not blocked or stagnant or destructive.
