LECTURE ON FENG SHUI
Join Renae Jensen at The GreenRoots Gathering to learn more about the "Secret" art of Feng Shui.
Our homes are so much more than four walls and a roof. They are true extensions and expressions of our lives, and we are a reflection of our homes. Does your home nurture and support you ? Do you feel inspired and uplifted when you cross your threshold?
Do you feel you are living at 100 percent?
When we make a change, move a couch, chose a beautiful picture, clear clutter, we are physically recreating that space with a clear intention and a purpose.
We take charge of our lives by representing on the outside, what we want on the inside.. There truly is no difference.
Renae is a certified Feng Shui teacher and professional for over twenty years, she has taught Feng Shui on an international platform, and has enjoyed many television and radio appearances. She hosted several International Feng Shui conferences in New Jersey that brought the architecture, green design and feng shui community together in educational harmony. She has empowered feng shui and conscious design in many commercial buildings, schools, offices, and personal homes. She is the founder of the Conscious Design Institute and Design Harmony Feng Shui. Renae trains public and professionals in Feng Shui and Space Clearing. Renae is an active real estate agent and specializes in feng shui for home sales.
