with host artist Miriam Schulman
Since Spring is just right around the corner and we all want tidy up our studios using the best feng shui principles, I’ve invited certified feng shui practitioner Kate MacKinnon to give us some professional tips.
The two most basic elements of feng shui is really about creating balance and harmony of good positive energy in your environment. If you envision a place that you like to go to, you can bring the principles of that place into your space to create that good positive energy and flow which supports you and your well-being.
In this podcast, you will discover…
- What is feng shui and how you can use it to attract more harmony, beauty and grace
- The number one thing you want to make sure you have in your art studio
- What you want to make sure is NOT in your studio and why
I thought it would be helpful to put together a checklist of what we talked about to go through your studio and declutter as well as move your stuff around to change your life. You’ll be able to download that check list here >>
