Bedroom Feng Shui
Free lecture, Kailua Library
Thursday, April 25, 6:00pm - 7:00pm
According to feng shui, the bedroom is the most important room and the bed is the most important object in the home. The most frequent question I’m asked is where to put the bed. The short answer is to put it so you can easily see the door from the bed. But there are many other factors that influence the placement, such as the location of windows and bathrooms. I'll address the various details, such as color, texture, lighting, and artwork, that help a bedroom support sound sleep. My books will be for sale at the talk, and Watermark Publishing will donate 30% of the sale price to the Friends of the Library. The Kailua Library number is 266-9911.
Feng Shui for Hawaii Gardens
$25 Class, Lyon Arboretum
Friday, April 26, 9:30am - noon
The class shows how feng shui principles can be applied to the tropical garden and the unique Hawaii landscape. In feng shui the garden is seen as the first chance to invite good energy (chi) and the best opportunity to deflect harsh energy. Topics include: the importance of balance in relation to the surrounding landform, pathways, and water features as well as ornaments and the relation of garden to home. The shape and color of leaves and flowers, as well as the growth habit of the plant are discussed. Specific plants are recommended for specific places. The Arboretum's number is 988-0456.
Free Class, Shoboji
Friday, April 26, 7:00pm - 8:30pm
Mindfulness is the simple, repetitive effort of bringing one’s attention back to the task at hand throughout the day. Although it’s simple to define, doing one thing at a time is difficult to practice. The class will include: suggestions for recentering oneself, being mindful in difficult situations, and dealing with bothersome thoughts. There will be practice in walking meditation. Shoboji is at 1708 Nuuanu Ave. Preregistration is required; call Shoboji at 539-9409, or visit https://sotomission.org/2019/01/29/mindfulnessclass/
