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.

 

About Clear Englebert

Clear Englebert is an Alabama native.  In 1971, at age 19, he opened his first Huntsville bookstore, A Good Book Store, in Five Points.  In 1978, he founded Books as Seeds, and in 1989, Opening Books (a 501c3 library and gift shop).  He managed at Green Apple Books, San Francisco’s largest independent bookstore, and at Pearly Gates Natural Foods in Huntsville. With decades of experience in retail visual merchandizing, Clear began a career as a residential interior consultant in Hawaii in 1994.  His feng shui practice began there in 1995, and blossomed when he moved to San Francisco in 1996.  He emphasizes common sense in his approach to feng shui, avoiding consumerism and superstition.  A recognized feng shui expert, he has appeared on television, radio, and in the print media.  He has written five highly-acclaimed books on feng shui, the first published in 2000.  His books are: Feng Shui Demystified, Bedroom Feng Shui, Feng Shui for Hawaii, Feng Shui for Hawaii Gardens, and most recently Feng Shui for Retail Stores.  Clear’s books are available in four languages.  For more information, visit fungshway.com.
