I think a lot of people think that being green and practicing Feng Shui are two separate things; however, only by utilizing ancient energy principles can we be one with mama earth. In order for us to honor her natural rhythms we have to understand energy and get back to basics. Many of us have lost our connection to those natural rhythms of the planet. We no longer honor her seasons and ignore the cycles that ebb and flow with harvest. We once celebrated her with offerings, ceremonies and ritual and in the last 100 years that love affair has been completely lost.
So what can Feng Shui do to save her? Well for one, we need to get back to basics. My book, Easy Everyday Habits to be More Eco-Friendly is about to come out in print, and it’s my love letter to educating you on easy ways to be green. And fyi – while you’re doing this you’re raising her Chi and lovin’ on her like the grand mama she is!
In this podcast I’ll share with you 7 easy tips that you can start implementing today. You’ll learn about B Corporations, sunscreens, and the reason I wrote the book, the conflict around Palm Oil and why everyone needs to stop buying it.
