Hawaii Island Events
Free Lecture at Kealakekua library, Wednesday, June 26, from 5:30pm to 6:30pm
Your garden is your first and best opportunity to create positive energy for your home. Englebert explains chi energy and shows how to attract and maximize its beneficial flow, stressing the importance of the approach to the home. He tells why some energy from neighboring structures is considered negative and how to deflect it. Emphasis is placed on harmonizing the home with the surrounding landform. The examples are specific to Hawaii homes, and to the landscape, climate, and culture of the Islands, allowing a clear understanding of how to apply feng shui principles here. He also explains which plants to select and where to put them. Reach the library at 933-8890 for more information.
In early June I’ll be teaching two different classes in Honolulu on feng shui for interiors. Before I describe the classes, I’m thrilled to announce that at the Friday, June 7 class there will be a special guest appearance by Angi Ma Wong. She is the only feng shui consultant to have been on “Oprah” and she is the author of the best selling “Feng Shui Dos and Taboos” series. The class starts at 6:30pm, but if you would like to meet Angi and have her autograph copies of her books, please come early. We’ll be there at 6:00pm.
Please bring copies of her books with you if you would like them signed. They are available at local bookstores or online. In addition to the original “Feng Shui Dos and Taboos”, the other books in the series are: “Love”, “Health & Well-Being”, and “Financial Success”. Bring your copy of original Feng Shui Dos and Taboos (white cover) to get a free update for page 22.
Class Friday, June 7, 6:30-8:30pm, Interior Chi Flow
Introduces Chi energy, which is the most basic feng shui concept. Explains how to maximize Chi's beneficial flow and retain it within a home. The importance of doors and windows is stressed, as well as how to use feng shui cures. How to locate the powerful spots within a room.

Classes will be in the Executive Centre Hotel at 1088 Bishop Street, at the Ewa/makai corner of Bishop and Hotel streets. From street level, take the escalator down to the lobby, and head toward the Hukilau Restaurant. Just before you enter the restaurant, there are double doors to the right, and that's the public meeting room where the classes will be.
There is validated parking. The garage driveway is to the right on Bishop Street between Hotel and King streets, immediately before Starbucks and shortly after the UPS Store.
