Part 2 of our 3-part program series about feng shui.  For more information, visit go.hmcpl.org/fengshui2014.

According to feng shui, your garden is your first and best opportunity to create positive energy for your home. Feng shui master and author Clear Englebert explains the three main uses of feng shui in the garden: Inviting good energy to the property, nurturing that energy, and protecting the home from harsh energy.

The very first thing a garden can do for a home and those who dwell there is to invite good energy onto the property and then to the front door. Englebert explains the concept of chi energy and how to be sure that the energy that finds you is actually good energy. The color red is extremely important in feng shui and he explains where to put that color and why.

The most ancient feng shui principle is to locate the dwelling in a very balanced environment. This nurtures good energy by harmonizing the home with the surrounding landform. Where the natural landscape does not provide this balance, plants can substitute for the correct landform, and give the home a “tucked in” feeling.

Protecting the home from harsh influences is a basic feng shui goal. Englebert tells why some energy from neighboring structures is considered negative and how to deflect it. When a problem occurs outside a home there are three kinds of solutions to choose from: blocking the problem so it’s hidden, reflecting the problem away, or dispersing it. There can be a wide variety of problems coming from such things as the road and neighboring buildings.

Clear will be happy to sign books after his talk.  Books are available through pre-order at Barnes & Noble Bridge Street.  For more information, call 327-8700.

Part 3 of our 3-part program series about feng shui.  For more information, visit go.hmcpl.org/fengshui2014.

This lecture could also be called “Feng Shui for Love and Money.”  Feng shui master Clear Englebert introduces the Five Elements (which are also used in acupuncture) and their application to homes and furnishings.  He’ll explain yin/yang symbol and show its evolution into the bagua map, which is a grid that lies over the floor plan.  Each area of the bagua grid corresponds to an aspect of life.  The orientation of the grid is based on the door, which is called the Mouth of Chi.  Clear shows how to remedy the problems created by uniquely-shaped houses.  These problems are called such things as Missing Areas or Meat-Cleaver Homes.  They are most severe when they affect the two power corners, Wealth and Relationship.  Clear discusses these two rear corners in depth, as well as the power of color.  He explains water features, plants, and clutter reduction, as well as eliminating conflicting energy from the home, and how single people can attract relationships.  The other bagua areas are Wisdom, Reputation, Career, Helpful People, Creativity and Children.  The word” ba” means “eight”; the word “gua” means “area.”  “Bagua” literally means “eight areas around the room.”

Clear will be happy to sign books after his talk.  Books are available through pre-order at Barnes & Noble Bridge Street.  For more information, call 327-8700.
