Feng Shui: On Land and at Sea
In Feng Shui and Traditional Chinese Medicine, it is believed that health for an individual occurs when chi flows freely through the body nourishing every cell. The same is true for a space- whether it is your home, office, public environment or even a ship! Compass School, teaches us to go into a space with what is called a “Lao Pan” Compass. This compass is used to determine the directional influences on a property in relation to the universe.
Feng Shui and Meditation
Feng Shui has gained popularity in the United States in recent years. During hard times people often look to Feng Shui remedies to increase income, wealth, love and health. There are many books in the “how-to” category offering entertaining reading and easy to implement do-it-yourself tips. However this 5,000-year-old practice, like an onion, has many intricate layers, complexities and unspoken truths. Everyone I meet longs to hear what goes on above and beyond moving furniture around in a living or working space.

Beautiful Places, Greener Spaces
Some of the happiest moments of our lives are spent outdoors. We all have recollections of these experiences—a blazing sunset, the scent of the ocean air, animal life encountered on a stroll through the woods, the view of a pastel sunrise from a mountaintop, a golden harvest moon or the fleeting glimpse of a mammoth butterfly. In our modern, fast paced world, most of us spend about 98% of our time indoors. This makes it very easy to forget our connection to the natural world.
Feng Shui Tips for Autumn
Just as nature goes through its cycles of change so do we. We are as much a part of the seasons as the leaves that fall from the trees during autumn, the white snowflake crystals that magically fall from the sky in the winter, the rebirth of the early grass inspring and the fire of the sun on a summer’s day. Autumn is the perfect time for us to prepare ourselves for changes that the season of winter brings.
EcoChi Interior Design Brings Nature Indoors
When designing beautiful rooms, buildings, offices and homes, bring nature’s elements indoors using the EcoChi® philosophy-blending feng shui, green and sustainability and environment psychology. The focus in this design system is the relationship between nature, the beauty of buildings and the wellbeing and happiness of the inhabitants. It is possible to purposefully arrange an environment so that it has a positive effect on the people who live, work or visit there. Nature’s beauty is for all to enjoy. It is a right we earn at birth.
The Chief Architect of our world clearly loves curves. Picture the swirls and curls of the ocean waves, the gentle arc of a flower petal, the perfection of a full moon, or the spiral motion of caressing winds on a balmy evening. We are energy, and so are all of the things around us, both animate and inanimate. Invisible but powerful patterns of energy exist everywhere. This is the basic principle of quantum mechanics, which has been observed and documented by scientists at the scale of atomic particles.
