Two German architects, the husband and wife team of Sahaj Korner and Guru Surya Schaberle, will visit Juneau from April 16 through May 15 to give introductory and in-depth courses in feng shui.
The basic principle of feng shui is to create positive energy in a building to attract better opportunities as well as provide better health and harmony in relationships. To achieve this, feng shui uses a wide range of simple measures such as creating a good entrance area for a powerful flow of energy, balancing the astrological influences with colors and symbols or providing a healthy and relaxing sleeping place free of waterlines and other earth stresses. During a consultation, Korner and Schaberle also clear old negative earth energies and check the building for radiation.
Each student will earn a certificate from the Qi-Mag Institute for alternative medicine and environmental studies. All courses take place in the Little Brown House, next to the ANB Hall. For more information and to register, call 780-4051.
The series starts with an introduction to feng shui, 6:30-9:30 p.m., tonight. Cost is $36.
