You may have read my recent post called The Tao of Lockdown. It was sparked by the situation we suddenly found ourselves in, thanks to the Covid crisis, spending more time in our homes than we ever imagined. For some that’s been okay, for others it’s been incredibly stressful. What it has done, though, is shone a spotlight on the importance of our homes.
A supportive home is such a precious thing. It’s what led me to feng shui in the first place. But how can something so Chinese and so old be incorporated into modern Western lives? There are so many versions, some of which seem conflicting and confusing, but they all start in the same place – assessing the way the life force energy inherent in everything flows through the home, and trying to optimise its beneficial qualities.
So I wanted to share this podcast I did with Dr Ron Ehrlich, the author of ‘A Life Less Stressed: The Five Pillars of Health and Wellness’. I’ve known Ron and his wife Annie for many years and been allowed to advise them at various times on the layout of their home. Ron is a rather extraordinary man whose career as a dentist has led him to explore the much wider spectrum of health. Early on, I remember him talking about the importance of feet in dental care, which kind of blew my mind. But of course it makes sense – how you stand affects the alignment of the spine and therefore the jaw and the health of your teeth. It’s a great example of how everything is interlinked. Just as our homes have a deeper effect on our health and well being than we might at first think.
