UNA GU A CON M LTIPLES IDEAS PARA TRANSFORMAR NUESTRO HOGAR EN UN TEMPLO DE POSITIVIDAD EXTERIOR E INTERIOR.

No hay nada como el hogar. De nosotros depende que sea como queremos. Y si bien es cierto que inevitablemente acaba siendo una manifestaci n de nuestra personalidad, tambi n lo es que con una preparaci n adecuada, una estrategia relativa a los objetivos claros, tenacidad, rigor y buena voluntad, podemos cambiar el estilo del lugar donde vivimos. Y, al mismo tiempo, nos cambiaremos tambi n un poco a nosotros mismos. El para so es tu casa habla precisamente de todo esto y de mucho m s. Concebido como una gu a, encontraremos en l informaci n para saber qu dice de nosotros nuestro hogar; orientaci n sobre los cambios que podemos hacer para transformarlo a fin de obtener el mayor bienestar; las caracter sticas de cada estancia para saber cu les generan vitalidad, relajaci n o concentraci n e inspiraci n; consejos para sanar o mejorar nuestro estado de nimo a trav s del sitio en que vivimos, con elementos tan sencillos como la luz, las plantas y los colores; t cnicas para conseguir llenar de positividad nuestra vivienda; detalles pr cticos sobre los mejores materiales para crear un hogar saludable; ideas para conseguir que en l reinen siempre la armon a y la tranquilidad. Aprovechando la sabidur a que emana de la tradici n oriental, tanto china como japonesa, y la incorporaci n de numerosos consejos y estrategias que la cultura occidental nos ha legado, Diana Quan nos ayuda a convertir nuestra casa en un oasis de serenidad, buenas relaciones y creatividad.

Los motivos que nos llevan a elegir un mobiliario en concreto, la forma en que ordenamos nuestros libros o las fotograf as que escogemos para enmarcar son acciones ligadas a determinados modos de ser. Por eso, los detalles que forman parte de la decoraci n de una vivienda dicen mucho sobre sus due os. Una habitaci n decorada con plantas y flores, por ejemplo, habla de una persona que ama la naturaleza; una en la que abundan los retratos indica que su propietario es una persona amistosa y familiar; mientras que si lo que encontramos son velas, sabremos que es el espacio de quien gusta de la calma y la intimidad. Tambi n los muebles dicen mucho de nosotros. Si son c modos es porque nos gusta pasar tiempo en casa; si son funcionales significa que tenemos una mentalidad precavida y pr ctica, y si nos gustan cl sicos seguramente somos algo conservadores. Por curioso que pueda parecer, incluso la iluminaci n revela aspectos de nuestra personalidad. Una vivienda con luz abundante estar habitada por una persona muy activa. Por el contrario, si tiene luces bajas y en las ventanas hay cortinas y persianas, ser el hogar de un amante de la paz.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

A guide with many ideas for transforming our homes into temples of interior and exterior positivity.

There's no place like home. But it's up to us to make them into what we want. And if it is true that they inevitably end up being a manifestation of our personalities, it's also true that with preparation, a strategy aligned with our objectives, persistence, discipline, and willpower, we can change the style of the place where we live--and at the same time, we will change ourselves. Paradise Is Your Home discusses this and so much more.

Drawing from the wisdom of Eastern traditions, both Chinese and Japanese, and the inclusion of advice and strategies from Western culture, Diana Quan helps you convert your home into an oasis of serenity, good relationships, and creativity.

Calming Projects for a Harmonious Home
Paperback      ISBN: 0762462620
Feng Crochet draws on the elements of Feng Shui to teach readers 30 peaceful, practical, crocheted crafts to infuse their spaces with positive energy and beautiful objects.

Our homes are meant to be a refuge -- a place of calm, serene contemplation where we can recharge after a long day. Feng Crochet, the latest book from author and crafter Nikki Van De Car, teaches readers how to create a nurturing environment with simple, beautiful projects to crochet. Grouped by the five elements of Feng Shui (wood, fire, earth, metal, and water), the patterns in this book range from home decor (plant hangers, large baskets, lampshades, and scatter rugs) to small, precious items that add a touch of warmth and peace to any room (napkin rings, dreamcatchers, doilies, and curtain ties).

Mindful prompts and meditations begin each project, while helpful tips on incorporating the principles of Feng Shui into both crafts and life are peppered throughout the book. Beautifully illustrated with full-color photography and charming line art, Feng Crochet asks crafters of all skill levels to look inward as they create objects to bring peace and tranquility to their most treasured spaces.

A User-Friendly Guide to the Ancient Art of Placement
Paperback      ISBN: 0892816163

Clear instructions for incorporating this Chinese art into your personal environment to create balance and prosperity.
The Feng Shui Companion is a user-friendly handbook for anyone interested in employing the ancient Chinese art of geomancy for creating balance, harmony, and prosperity in their personal environment. Feng shui, the Chinese words for wind and water, is a time-honored system of rules, concepts and principles that explain how our lives are pragmatically and spiritually linked to our environment. As the author shows, based on his own experience, these principles can be implemented at little cost in both new and existing buildings, often with significant improvements to the physical and financial well-being of the people who live in them. Just a simple change in the placement of furniture or the addition of a plant to a room can have a noticeable impact on an individual's life. With expert summaries of the key feng shui concepts, the author provides clear instructions for creating a place in which you want to spend time rather than one in which you are constantly trying to escape because "something doesn't feel right."

Unlike other books on the subject, The Feng Shui Companion details specific ways to incorporate feng shui principles into your own home or work space.

The author shows how just a few seemingly inconsequential and inexpensive changes in both new and existing structures can have enormously positive effects.
