All are welcome to join Grandmaster Hong in a day devoted to making the most of the New Year with a Feng Shui benefit workshop from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday in Lihue.
The workshop provides practical tools for enhancing prosperity for health, finances, romance and family — all within the context of the 5,000-year-old Feng Shui tradition.
Participants will gain an understanding of energetic influences to be experienced during 2015, the Year of the Ram from Grandmaster Hong, a master of five different schools of Feng Shui.
Feng Shui is a science that combines mankind’s energy with the energy of nature and Earth.
“The Qi (life force energy) that flows through our bodies also flows through our homes and work places,” according to a press release. “With a 5,000-year-old history in China, Feng Shui is a science and art form. A home or business needs to have positive Qi surrounding it, as well as within it, in order to have good health, prosperity and relationships.”
One of few Qi Gong Grandmasters in the United States, Grandmaster Hong trained in China as a physician in Western medicine and has reached the highest attainable level in Qi Gong of over 45 years by mastering the seven systems of Qi Gong, which include healing, intelligence, self-healing, martial arts, herbology, spiritual practices and special abilities. The Hawaii Legislature has proclaimed him a “Living Treasure.”
Proceeds benefit the Lawai International Center, a nonprofit, nondenominational community project driven by its volunteers, whose efforts are bringing the valley back to prominence as an international center of compassion, education and cultural understanding.
The workshop will be held at the Happiness Planting Center in the Isenberg Tract in Lihue.
Tuition is $200 in advance, $225 at the door and includes lunch. Info: 639-4300 or lawaicenter.org.
