The Feng Shui Bagua: Attracting Harmony and Prosperity
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.
