About

‘Feng Shui’ translates to “wind-water,” and is all about creating a sense of well-being within a residence. The idea is when a person feels happy, secure and confident, this positive energy spills into other areas of life, such as work and relationships, resulting in more success. Both wind and water flow through our world, as does assorted energies that make up the universe. However, these subtle energies can sometimes become blocked. Feng Shui is a way to release such energies, balance the Yin and Yang, and keep everything “flowing” as it should. This art is a way for humans to work with “Qi” or “Chi,” the omnipresent energies that bind the universe with Earth and its inhabitants.
