Thankfully a real winter seems to be here! As we turn more inward, cozy in our homes, it is an optimal time to consider the role our environment plays in the state of our health and well-being which is a key step in living consciously. Creating personal energetic sustainability should be a priority in our busy lives. In order for life and business to operate smoothly, we need to create environments that provide a balanced, strong flow of chi to cultivate and sustain our energy. When we design our environments utilizing the goals and concepts of traditional Feng Shui we create greater ease in our lives. This enhances our personal potential, the health and happiness of our relationships and family life, and success and enjoyment in our work lives.
At the next Hayfork Cooperative meeting, Tuesday, January 19th (7:00-9:00 pm) at Northern Delights Coffee House (7091 State Hwy 3, Hayfork), Julia Baldwin will introduce us to the three most fundamental Feng Shui steps we can take to achieve vibrant, healthy, and joyful lives. She will also discuss traditional Chinese geomancy and specifically, how to read the 'dragon veins' in our mountains. This information is helpful when selecting dynamic building sites.
Julia Baldwin, traditional Chinese Feng Shui consultant, has lived in Trinity County for 40 years. Throughout her lifelong relationship with the natural world, she has focused on creating spaces that heal and nurture the human spirit. She entered the professional world of Feng Shui after many years in the healing arts as a massage therapist, women’s health care professional and Waldorf educator. Her many years living off the electrical grid, abiding within the rhythms of the land and the seasons, has imbued in her a keen sense of the subtle energies that influence our well-being. Julia’s experiences as a gardener, builder, designer, and domestic artist were reinforced and strengthened by the rich curriculum of the Golden Gate School of Feng Shui, where she studied and graduated in 2009. The focus of her studies and her current consulting practice at Sense Of Place Feng Shui blend traditional Chinese/Taoist principles with a focus on contemporary eco-sustainable design principles. She offers many specialized consultations, which can be seen at her website: senseofplacefengshui.com
