I was invited by Redfin to contribute to a Feng Shui article on home offices. Here's what I wrote, followed by the snippet they used. Vastu is the Yoga of Design from ancient India and is part of the origin of Feng Shui. Six tips from Vastu expert Sherri Silverman, PhD to create a healthy, unobstructed flow of ch'i, or "universal life energy,” in your home workplace: 1. Use the current situation of COVID as incentive to decide what’s really important in your life and home. We’re all getting rearranged inside and out. Seize this opportunity to organize and declutter. 2. If your home has no space for anything and chaos everywhere, spend twenty minutes a day throwing out or selling or giving away what...

May 9, 2015, additions made January 15, 2020 Misconceptions about Vastu, the Design System from Ancient India 1. Vastu is NOT the same as Feng Shui. In fact, it is thousands of years older and part of the origin of Feng Shui. Even many websites from India purporting to give Vastu knowledge are simply repackaging Feng Shui as Vastu. There is much wrong information about Vastu Shastra. To learn what Vastu really is, read this Vastu page on my website . 2. Mirrors are NOT used in Vastu as they are in Feng Shui. Since Vastu is based on the laws of nature—in other words, the laws of physics— keep in mind that anything that goes into a mirror bounces back to...
February 10, 2016 I'm delighted to announce that you can now study Padmini Vidya. The first course is a mini-course to give you some basic information to help your financial prosperity based in spirituality. It will give you a taste of the full course, which I have been researching and developing for a few years now as a manuscript and in my own life. You can purchase and study these materials at your own pace to enhance your life and your ability to manifest wealth. What is Padmini Vidya? Padmini is “She who sits on the lotus,” Lakshmi, the goddess of good luck and abundance on all levels. Her most well known aspect, Dhana Lakshmi, is the goddess of financial...
June 23, 2015, updated February 2017 Altars and shrines and puja tables are all part of setting up your home as sacred space. Here are examples from my own home and ones I’ve enjoyed during my travels. I’ve also created a Pinterest board for altars, shrines, blessings rituals; it has over 300 pins (or images) that may inspire you. My home puja table is a contemporary reproduction green low Chinese sideboard. My puja set is the principal resident of the table, in front of a silk- and golden-framed Tradition of Masters photo. Some day I will get the components of this puja set gold-plated. I’ve had it since 1974 and it’s been used not only by me hundreds of times but...
