Washington, DC- With the economy still down and the real estate market still slow, more and more people are staying home and those who might once have considered selling up and moving on to get the home they wanted are turning instead to trying to create the home they want.  A Feng Shui consultation can alert you to simple adjustments that will bring your home into better harmony with your own energy so it supports the homeowner instead of being “at war” with them.  At the same time Feng Shui can eliminate negative energies, it can help stimulate positive energies, creating a dramatic change in the way you experience your home — and life! Feng Shui is the ancient Chinese practice that uses the laws of heaven and earth to help improve a person’s life by bringing in positive vibes.

Although there are a great many feng shui resources, articles, bogs and even television shows out there to guide people in those efforts it is still very hard to translate them to the space you actually have. To help homeowners create their own positive energy filled home  without hiring a feng shui practitioner, top DC/MD/VA Home and Design Magazine Top 100 regional designer and Feng Shui expert Sherry Burton Ways is offering a seven week course entitled “ Creating A Loving Home with Feng Shui” at the University of the District of Columbia’s Community College starting October 17th.

The District of Columbia’s Community College will offer this seven -session course on Feng Shui in their Continuing Education Division. Classes will meet on Mondays with an evening class beginning on October 17th from 7:00 pm –9:00 p.m. at the DC Community College, 801 N. Capitol Street, NE, Washington, DC in room 116 . Cost for the course is $200.00.  Members of Think First DC or DC Live Green will be charged $180.00.  This is an introductory course, not designed for Feng Shui certification, where students will earn 1.6 CEU’s.

Literally translated as windwater, Feng Shui is fast becoming the mantra of the day. One of the major objectives of Feng Shui is to strike a balance in one’s life, eliminating chaos and leading to calmness of mind. “People nowadays have become conscious about Feng Shui and about bringing positive energy into their lives,” says Sherry Burton Ways, a Feng Shui expert and Principal of the DC Based décor firm, Kreative Ways & Solutions, LLC.

To sign up for this course, or for more information, contact Amanda Olivares at 202-274-7183 or aolivares@udc.edu or visit DC Community College Continuing Education Division.
