Feng Shui: The ancient Chinese art of creating an environment of balance and prosperity
Today's world demands balance and a sense of alignment with personal space both at home and at work. Stress, imbalance, and a feeling of disarray not only impede optimal performance in your everyday tasks, but can also have a detrimental impact on your physical, mental, and spiritual health. This, in turn, limits your ability to succeed and create happiness in your life.
Part science and part art, Feng Shui addresses the layout and design of space in a way that permits the most optimal flow of energy within an environment. This in turn brings the environment- be it a home, office, or other type of space -into tune with the needs of its inhabitants. Much more than simply creating a comfortable space through interior design, the sense of personal balance created through Feng Shui allows for greater productivity, creativity, motivation, and positive thinking. Feng Shui targets what has traditionally been known as "Earth Luck" - in other words, the circumstances of your physical surroundings that influence how you think, feel, and behave. Virtually every aspect of your life can be improved when these conditions are in proper order.

Feng Shui: Ancient Origins, Modern Uses
Dating back more than 4,000 years, "Feng Shui" literally means "Wind & Water." The name is closely connected to its original purpose- the planning and development of early buildings and agricultural grounds in areas that delivered fierce mountain winds and lowland floods. As records show, Feng Shui was eventually adopted into the Chinese Imperial Court, where its use was further expanded and refined over the centuries. Even with its long and complex history, Feng Shui is not connected to any particular religion or philosophy. Rather, it is a practice defined through practice of traditional rules. Feng Shui is built upon practical application- not academic theory -and its flexible character has allowed it to evolve through time so that its benefits can still be enjoyed today.
People in all cultures around the world have experienced the remarkable capacity of Feng Shui to create a more balanced and positive environment. Feng Shui can improve the energy and dynamic flow of virtually any type of space, large or small. Feng Shui is not about mere appearance; it works with a deeper character of space. While rooted in Asian tradition, it can work with any Western style, from country to contemporary.
