Feng Shui seemed like another world than the common sensical,
"down-to-earth" type of conscious world the Dutch are used too. But, it
can make life more pleasant and perhaps make you richer!, Look at me!
It is not a religious or spiritual thing, but kind of a basic
harmony concept or "Way of life" Lynn said this after having almost 12
years of interest and study in Feng Shui science. It is not "kitsch",
art nor fake, it is a way of bringing harmony into your environment and

Those interested can attain information over courses/workshops or advice about the Feng Shui methods.

My boutique is the first world of Feng Shui boutique in the Netherlands! Gerkens-Lim called out with pride.
