Course Description

Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese art that is designed to help you improve your life personally and professionally.  The Chinese believe that your environment has a large effect on you mentally and your physical well-being.  When you are unbalanced in your life, you open yourself up to negative emotions and illness.  However, when you are balanced in your life, you open yourself up to greater wealth and health.  Much of what is utilized in feng shui is interior decorating designed to align your home or office with the various elements of the universe and create harmony in your life based upon your specific personal requirements. 

Throughout this course, you will learn how to use feng shui in your personal life step by step.  Each lesson will guide you through the next step in the process of feng shui.  From determining whether you are yin or yang, what type of occupation you have, to the type of personality you have based upon your birth stars, you will learn how all of these elements combine and how to harmonize them in your home.  Additionally, you will be able to assess other members of your family living in your home and harmonize your birth stars and element with the others in your home.

This harmony is created by learning how to determine which elements in your home work for you or against you, as well as the various colors and types of surfaces that should be used within your home.  Finally, you will learn how to cleanse your home of not only clutter, but also ill spirits and memories that may be inhibiting you.
