Feng Shui and Design Psychology

As I was conducting research for my Feng Shui book I came across various articles on 'Design Psychology,' a UCLA Architecture/Interior Design program. In short, Design Psychology conducts interviews to understand the environmental history (clients' mental and emotional connection) of that given space. Based on the clients' responses the Design Physiologist chooses certain colors, lighting, textures and arrangement of the space to assist in balancing the emotions and well-being of those occupants. 

 

Sound familiar? Feng Shui is the same (environmental healing for the body, mind and spirit), using the 5 elements theory (fire, earth, metal, water and wood) which make up human physical and emotional characteristics and archetypes. Feng Shui also taps into geomancy, sustainability practices, spirituality and much more. It's an interdisciplinary practice that is in constant evolution as long as humans have a relationship with this Earth. 

 

Feng Shui is a 5,000 year old practice that has gone for too long being either shunned or renamed multiple times do the symbolic and metaphorical language gap. The goal of my Feng Shui book is to bridge western and eastern philosophies and practices at certain cross-roads, providing practical and perhaps surprising evidence in how Feng Shui is not something so far fetched and quite beneficial on various levels.

Good evening Laura Cerrano ,

Very cool! Love that your Feng Shui book is to bridge western and eastern philosophies and practices at certain cross-roads, providing practical and perhaps surprising evidence in how Feng Shui is not something so far fetched and quite beneficial on various levels.
