Feng Shui

Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese philosophy and practice that dates back over six thousands years, originating in China.

Feng Shui is the placement and arrangement of objects and structures in the environment which can affect the flow of energy, known as qi, chi and/or ki.  Feng Shui is analogous to acupuncture for the home.

Feng Shui means Wind and Water in Chinese. Wind travels throughout our Universe, freely and uninhibited, and is essential to our survival, as is our breath. Water takes the shape of any form, snow, ice, rivers and is extremely adaptable. We are made up of 70+% water, which is critical to our survival.

When Feng Shui is balanced, it is as if we are swimming with the current. The water is clean, clear and abundant and flows easily.  Feng Shui that is not in balance is like stagnant water; no circulation, or perhaps an eddy where it simply goes in circles- getting no where. When our Feng Shui is balanced life flows easily and effortlessly, the Qi, Energy lingers and meanders and all is well.

The combination of Wind (breath) and Water is what makes life possible.  Our planet Earth is an extension of ourselves, as we are an appendage to the Earth.



Feng Shui is based on the alignment of the five elements, Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water. The elements are of paramount importance to Feng Shui. Use them properly, and watch your life blossom into a world of beauty.

The Ba-Gua, or Lifestyle Grid, as Mary Dennis calls it, is divided into eight areas called guas. The  Tai Ji, Health center, is in the middle of the Ba-Gua and connects all of the guas. Each gua is associated with a predominant element: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal or Water. In order to have balanced Feng Shui it is imperative that the proper elements are located and supported in their correct Guas.
