Natalia showed us a picture of The Bagua Map, an important tool that consists of 8 compass directions. Each direction or part of a space correlates with particular areas in life. The map can be superimposed over a room, building, or landscape and by applying Feng Shui principles, you can energize a certain area of life.

Using the Bagua Map and the 5 Elements (wood, fire, earth, metal, and water), we learned where and how to create a Wealth Garden, Love Garden, and a garden for Meditation & Healing. Natalia encouraged us to create balance (Yin/Yang) in our gardens and homes, and to observe and enhance the flow of energy.
"By engaging all of our senses within the garden, we create a deeper connection between ourselves and nature, and this is the essence of Feng Shui." --Natalia Kaylin
