LIHUE — A Feng Shui Benefit Workshop for the Lawai International Center is set for Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Lihue.
The event offers participants the chance to learn everyday tools for enhancing health, finances, romantic life and family life, all within the context of the 5,000-year-old feng shui tradition, according to a press release.
World-renowned Grandmaster Hong, a master of five different schools of feng shui, will teach participants about energetic influences that are forecast for 2017, the Year of the Rooster.
Feng shui works with the energy of the environment and how it affects every aspect of life, the release explained. The Qi ( life force energy) that flows through human bodies also flows through homes and work places, so 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, the release said.
One of just a 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. Those include healing, intelligence, self-healing, martial arts, herbology, spiritual practices and special abilities. The Hawaii Legislature has proclaimed him a “Living Treasure.”
Proceeds from the event will benefit the Lawai International Center, a nonprofit, nondenominational community project. Volunteers are bringing the valley back to prominence as an international center of compassion, education and cultural understanding for all people, according to the release.
Tuition is $200 prepaid and $225 at the door. The fee includes lunch. To register call 651-8893 or visit www.lawaicenter.org. The workshop will be held at the Happiness Planting Center in the Isenberg Tract in Lihue.
