Balance in our environment in order to achieve harmony and success is the essential nature of Feng Shui.
According to Chinese philosophy everything in this world is made up from one of, or a combination of the 5 elements – water, wood, fire, earth and metal – and they exert a great influence on our daily lives.
Each and every one of us has a responsibility for the sustainability of our planet. If we choose to do so, every one of us can make a difference. And…if we work together with a common purpose we can achieve great things.

Feng Shui is also to do with abstract and unseen forces that are governed by the principles of Yin and Yang and the Cycles of Birth and Destruction of the Five Elements.
