Tiny House Feng Shui – Workshop
How to get your tiny house design right and balanced with Feng Shui.
Learn to overcome common Tiny House issues
Getting a tiny house balanced and functional can be a challenge. The key to a comfortable and well functioning tiny house lies in good design.
To be balanced, any home should have both, a cosy space for relaxation and a space where you can do things, work or be creative. The challenge is how to allow for different quality spaces within a limited floor plan – how to fit it all in.
This challenge is exasperated by the typical elongated narrow shape of a tiny. Often benches, furniture and seats are all lined up, akin to on a railway platform. This further contributes to a lack of comfort and containment.
Feng Shui & Sacred Geometry in a Tiny
The objective of Feng Shui is to collect positive environmental energy, and to make it available to you, both for your support and your activities.
With Feng Shui we make sure that your tiny will have distinct and functional spaces – somewhere to relax and somewhere adequate for each of your activities. With sacred geometry we ensure that each area embodies the harmonics of nature. The result of applying these tools is a home that not just looks good but also feels comfortable and right.
Your facilitator, Brigitte Seum, has over 20 years experience as a Feng Shui consultant. She has designed and built her own tiny that successfully incorporates relevant Feng Shui principles and stands out as a model tiny home.
Tiny House Feng Shui workshop
In this workshop we address common tiny house problems and learn how to use various Feng Shui and sacred geometry principles to make your tiny feel spacious and balanced.
Common issues include feeling constrained – for example, being forced to sit up too straight in a tight seating corner, or feeling squashed by the low ceiling of a loft, or having your Yoga mat squeezed into the path between the bathroom and kitchen. Another common issue is a straight passageway that cuts through the space. Each of these features will diminish the enjoyment of your tiny home.
The workshop is taught in 2 x 1.5 hour segments live online via Zoom, the two sessions being one week apart. You will need paper and pen for sketching. Grid paper is helpful.
It includes teaching of the relevant Feng Shui and sacred geometry principles and opportunity to interact. You will be given PDF handouts and are encouraged to engage in the design of your tiny in the week between, which allows us to address the issues you run into.
We will address following principles:
- Yin Yang balance – balance between openness and containment
- harmonious and nurturing Qi flow*; avoiding stagnant energy
- sacred geometry proportions to make your home come to life
Design elements we will cover are:
- layout of spaces and functions
- placement of furniture and height variations
- window and door placement as well as window sizes
- shapes and materials.
