    YIN AND YANG WITH BARRY GORDON

    Episode 041 - Yin and Yang with Barry Gordon.jpg

    One of the most important concepts of feng shui is that of yin and yang and balance. I'm honored to have one of my BTB teachers and a student of Grandmaster Lin Yun, Barry Gordon, to share his insight on the yin and yang system, the Tai Chi Symbol and how yin and yang work in our lives and spaces. 

    Thanks so much to Barry for taking the time to explain this basic, but complicated, concept to us! I hope you can better understand why the ideas of yin and yang are so important in feng shui and creating a holistic space! If you have questions about this or any other feng shui or green design aspect, please feel free to reach out! You may even be featured on our Q&A Sunday series! You can also set up a consultation call to have your questions answered on an immediate and personal level.
