Feng Shui expert Clear Englebert

Feng Shui expert Clear Englebert will discuss the differences in the two kinds of feng shui (Compass and Form School), and explain chi energy. He will demonstrate graphically how some furniture placement is strong and some is weak. He will explain Harsh energy as well as how to retain beneficial energy in the home, and he will show the importance of the shape of the floor plan and the arrangement of the rooms.

Feng shui is not rocket science, and it does not require a leap of faith—Englebert has taught it to grammar school classes. He says, “Feng shui is about using the things you have in the home you have to move your life forward. I wouldn’t practice it if I hadn’t seen the results in my own life and repeatedly in the lives of my clients.”

If you need an auxiliary aid/service or other accommodation due to a disability, please contact the library at least 7 days prior to the program date. We will make every attempt to fulfill all requests for accommodations. All programs are subject to change.
