Feng Shui Workshop for the Home and Garden to be Held at Colorado State University

A four-hour workshop will be presented on an ancient Chinese art from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. April 24 at the Cherokee Park Room and University Club in the Lory Student Center.

Feng Shui (Chinese for "wind" and "water") is an ancient art that determines the optimum flow of energy through the arrangement of objects in an environment. Knowledge and application of the principles of Feng Shui can enhance the health and well being of individuals and communities.

Topics covered include:

  • A brief history of Feng Shui.
  • An overview of how we see and experience our environment.
  • An overview of cultural distinctions between the house and garden.
  • An introduction to the Ba-gua (an octagonal tool utilized to determine optimum placement of objects).
  • A discussion of the Five Element theories (wood, fire, earth, metal and water).
  • Application of the Ba-gua and Five Elements to the house and garden.

The workshop is being conducted by Linda Kiisk, a registered architect and a student of Feng Shui Grand Master Lin Yun.

The cost for the workshop is $35. Registration is limited. For questions or to register, send a check payable to River Song Waldorf School, 701 Collingswood Drive, Fort Collins, CO 80524 or call Lauri Pointer at (970) 484-4771.
