Feng Shui is a time-honored, Chinese aesthetic healing tradition whose practitioners seek to achieve harmony & balance in clients' lives by properly arranging their homes and business environments. Though ancient, the practical philosophy of Feng Shui remains current today and pulls greatly from what we would term "green" or "eco-friendly" ideals by seeking effective design solutions that encourage holistic coexistence with nature.

Traditional Chinese Medicine is based on ancient Taoist philosophy. This philosophy embraces the human spirit and the unique balance within each individual. By understanding the intimate connection between body, mind, spirit and environment, we are able to gently guide the energy that allows the body to heal.

The Dragon personality The Dragon is a creature of myth and legend. A symbol of good fortune and sign of intense power, the Oriental Dragon is regarded as a divine beast - the reverse of the malicious monster that Westerners felt necessary to find and slay. In Eastern philosophy, the Dragon is said to be a deliverer of good fortune and a master of authority. Therefore, those people born in Dragon years are to be honored and respected.

4月22日は 煎茶の日 「煎茶」の文字は日本後紀に書かれているのが最初とされています。その日が4月22日です。 これを記念して、4月22日を勝手に『煎茶の日』と決めてしまいましょう。

India, Bhuj. This man makes hundreds of teas per day. He spends his days in a tiny shack, where he makes hundreds of teas a day. A customer just walked in and the Chai Wallah glanced to look, as he was pouring the tea in one of the 30 clay cups arranged in front of him. His intense expression caught in this moment is what I like the most about his photo. This is one of the series that I took of him at work.
