David Nichtern – Creativity, Spirituality & Making a Buck – Ep. 42 – Mindful Homes with Anjie Cho

Author, architect, and feng shui expert, Anjie Cho, joins David Nichtern to inspire listeners to revitalize their homes and their lives through the practice of mindful design.

“The heart of this book is asking people to not look at feng shui as a checklist of things to do and things to fix in your life, but to open up to become more friendly with your home, to start to engage with your home, and to see your home as a living being that can be your ally in your healing process and teach you a lot.” – Anjie Cho

In this episode, David and Anjie dive into:
  • Redefining your relationship with your home through feng shui and Buddhist teachings
  • Shifting the qi (life force energy) in your home to support your spiritual practices and creative endeavors
  • How our inner environments are translated to our external environments 
  • The feng shui map, or Bagua
  • House plants as teachers for different phases of our lives
