I've had a very enjoyable time decorating the new office using Feng Shui and Vastu concepts. Feng Shui (pronounced fung shway) is an ancient Chinese practice where spaces are arranged to achieve harmony with the elements (wood, metal, fire, water and earth).
Vastu, on the other hand, originates from ancient India and is considered one part of three sciences: Vastu, Ayurveda and Yoga (the latter being the most well-known) that comprise the mind-body-spirit equation and spiritual philosophy. According to author Kathleen Cox "Vastu is the first design science to use the human body as the guiding force in the creation of space. Vastu also understands that every design decision sets in motion a predictable consequence that is experienced by the human body. So once we know the predictable consequences, we eliminate the belief that there is mystery in design."
Next time you are in the office enjoy the aquarium in the corner of tranquility, or let yourself be drawn to the candelabra in the treatment room where the candles represent each of your energy centers, or chakras. I hope your experience at The Barefoot Dragonfly is one of peace, renewal, and comfort.
