Building Green With Heart: Adding the Soul Back Into Green Building Technology

During the past decades computer technology has largely driven the greatest boom of the green building movement since its inception, unfortunately often at the expense of the delight aspect of building design, which is essential to creating healthy balanced homes, places that connect to our soul, and nurture us as human beings.

Learning Objectives

  • Reevaluating the original meaning of building green, namely building places in harmony with the land and nature (building with feng shui).

  • Different ways to assure abundant flow of qi, to capture and activate it where it is needed and thus create spaces that restore and support personal wellness.

  • Exploring partnership patterns that help develop caring and mutually supportive living units and promote connectedness to the individual self, to others, and to the community at large.

  • Actively engaging members of the consulting and construction industry in the process of restoring the concept of home as a living organism.

Bio

Gisela Stehr, a native of Germany, holds a master’s degree in architecture from the University of Oregon. She practiced architecture for over ten years. Her long-time interest in Oriental philosophy and culture, combined with her genuine desire to reflect the deeper aspects of life in the creation of our built environments, led her to study the ancient art of feng shui. She eventually became a certified practitioner of Intuitive Feng Shui®. A consultant and teacher for more than twenty years, Stehr is founder and director of the Emerald Feng Shui Institute in Seattle, where she currently offers seminars and a feng shui training program. Her first book Feng Shui For Life was published in 2014.
