How can the environment impact your health and quality of life? Learn more by attending the APA Arizona workshop on August 19 from 3:00-5:00 pm. Feng Shui: The Impact of the Built Environment will be presented by Kevin Walters and Healing and Wellness Spaces: An Overview of Successful Design Practices will be presented by Wanda Mills-Bocachica, PHD, NCARB.

Feng Shui involves the concept of ‘energy’ which emanates from the physical form of the built environment. Energies can be beneficial, stagnant, or even destructive. Attendees will learn to recognize some of these energies, obtain insights to capitalize on the beneficial ones and understand how to mitigate the negative ones. Feng shui is all about how we feel based on the energy, and this can certainly affect our health.  In essence, the goal is to enhance the way we look at the world!  This knowledge can help ensure that the places we create support and enhance the lives of the people who live there, and for visitors, keep them coming back!

The Healing and Wellness Spaces presentation will help attendees understand how your physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing is influenced by your environment. The presentation will cover the Four-Fold Way: Walking the Paths of the Warrior, Teacher, Healer and Visionary; indigenous knowledge systems (spatial ordering philosophies and guidelines); mindfulness encouraged by surrounding elements; Eastern/Western philosophies; and healing traditions (Native American and the environment).

The workshop will inspire, uplift and inform all that attend.
