Q & A
What led you to this work?
I've always loved and lived by the motto "leave everywhere better than you found it." However as friends and family can tell you, I was not always a clean and tidy person. The older I got, the more I noticed that my mental and emotional energies could almost always be correlated to the state of my physical space. When several personal tragedies hit, adopting a minimalist lifestyle helped me regain a sense of control and I began to feel immediate relief and healing from the process of decluttering. From there I knew wanted to help others to feel this same inspiration, using the order of homes to bring more beauty and calm into the world. Lastly, as a lifelong conservationist I am passionate about spending time in nature, bringing the outdoors in, and making eco-friendly lifestyle choices. This planet is our home, so we need to treat it with respect and care just like we do our own living spaces.
Various books and bloggers that I came across in my decluttering journey led me to the concept of feng shui, which was a very natural fit due to my interest in the metaphysical, eastern medicine, and the natural world. With my geography and conservation background I also resonated with the principles of geomancy and how to "read" the land and the spaces around us. I had an immediate and powerful urge to learn more and become certified. After months of research I found a fit with the Earth Home School of Feng Shui, which is accredited by the International Feng Shui Guild. My modalities and tools range from the classical to the contemporary, with most falling under the BTB Black (Hat) Tantric Buddhist teachings, a Western branch of the Compass school. I also enjoy blending in modern and practical principles of minimalism, eco-sustainability, and intuitive medicine.
