Using Feng Shui to Balance Masculine and Feminine Energy in the Home

Wednesday, September 7

6 - 8 pm

Zoom Only

 

Feng Shui is about balancing masculine and feminine energy. Learn how to create balance in your home environment, creating a sense of ease in daily life. 

 

Masculine and feminine energy is often discussed as Yin and Yang: Yang features will make the space feel more active, whereas yin features will promote a more relaxing atmosphere. Being aware of how to balance the two can harmonize your space energetically and promote a healthy, nurturing home life. This is especially important when integrating the contrasting masculine and feminine energies of the people living in the space. 

 

Facilitator Wyming Sun, studied three years with the fourth ranking master of the Blue Dragon Lineage from Taiwan.

Book Study: Care of The Soul

Mondays Weekly

noon -1:30 pm

Are you ready to look more deeply into your life and sense the sacred in ordinary things? Join as we begin exploring a remarkable book, Care of the Soul: A Guide for Cultivating Depth and Sacredness in Everyday Life by psychotherapist, former monk and author Thomas Moore. In it, Moore uses archetypal psychology and mythology to examine the connections between spirituality and the issues facing individuals and society. While the message of this book regarding caring for yourself and your soul is straightforward, its implications might surprise you: you are a unique, complex individual and all aspects of that complexity must be allowed, even embraced, if you are to engage life with satisfying depth.
