A feng shui benefit workshop for wealth, health and success, with Grand Master Hong Liu, is Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Qi Center at the old Immaculate Conception School site in Isenberg Tract subdivision in Lihu‘e.
According to a press release, organizers said this workshop will provide everyday tools for enhancing prosperity, in health, finances, romance and family, all within the context of the feng shui tradition.
Participants will gain an understanding of the energetic influences to be experienced during 2006, with practical applications to your home and life.
Hong is a master of five different schools of feng shui.
Have you ever wondered if there was a way to “tune up” for the new year? organizers asked.
Are there really any everyday tools to enhance the quality of life in the areas of health, finances, romance and family? For many years, in fact for centuries, qi gong practitioners have wondered the same things, and have developed and perfected tools and techniques for understanding how to make the most out of the current year, organizers said.
Qi gong is an ancient Chinese discipline that encompasses physical and mental exercise in a healing tradition.
It has been on Kaua‘i for some time, and is practiced in Lihu‘e by one of its masters, the Chinese-educated Hong.
Hong, designated in Hawai‘i as a living treasure, has knowledge in five different schools of feng shui, and will explain how the energies of the universe apply to each person uniquely.
He will examine birth dates and birth places, and explain how the universal energy flow affects these times and places within the context of the feng shui traditions, organizers said.
The suggested tax-deductible donation is $175, which includes lunch. Proceeds benefit the Qi Center.
