Last month...I was chilling in my room 2 days prior to Christmas break. As I surveyed my diggs, I became disgusted with myself! My room was a mess. I had just been enlightening my students about the awesome Asian concept of Chi...an invisible source of energy that permeates the universe. Chi flows through the environment, animals and people, as well as man-made structures. Acupuncture and Tai Chi stimulate the life-giving flow of Chi through a person. The ancient interior decoration practice of
Feng Shui can do the same for your home or work-space. I felt like a hypocrite.
I decided my room was in desperate need of a Feng Shui makeover! This exercise had great informational power for many parties:
I could apply a complex topic from class in a demonstrable way
I could become more approachable to my students as they cheered me on in my noble quest.
I could also inspire kids to apply Feng Shui to some aspect of their lives.
This was an epic exercise in student engagement!
