Wellness Fair Sunday at the Gardens on Anderton

Wellness Fair in the Gardens happens Sunday, June 22, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Gardens on Anderton in Comox

Terri Perrin, a certified feng shui consultant and author with Comox-based Fine Art of Intention Feng Shui, will be one of several presenters and exhibitors sharing wisdom at the Wellness Fair in the Gardens on Sunday, June 22, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Gardens on Anderton in Comox.

“There are many factors to consider when incorporating feng shui principles to your landscape and garden design,” says Perrin. “But, before you grab your pruning sheers and garden spade, you first have to consider what your objectives are in making changes and enhancements to your outdoor living space. If, for example, you want more opportunities and increased wealth, the first thing to evaluate is the home’s formal entrance. Front doors and pathways that are blocked by overgrown trees or shrubs restrict, rather than create, a path for welcoming and positive energy to come into your life.”

Perrin adds that, in addition to making enhancements to your garden in an effort to facilitate life changes, it is imperative to set powerful intentions with every feng shui action. “If you don’t have a specific intention in mind you are just gardening, not practicing feng shui,” adds Perrin.

Wellness Fair visitors are invited to visit the Fine Art of Intention Feng Shui booth to ask questions and receive a free handout on how to set powerful and positive intentions. Terri Perrin will also be giving a 15-minute talk on Feng Shui for the Garden. The time of her presentation on the stage and a variety of other guest speakers will be posted at the event or you may call closer to the date for an exact time.

Perrin, an avid gardener herself, has been studying the influence of energy and the impact of design in home and work environments since 2006. She was certified as a Feng Shui Practitioner from Mount Royal University in Calgary, Alberta in 2008 and started her consulting business after moving to the Comox Valley in 2009.

The Wellness Fair in the Gardens is hosted by the IODE Laura Gordon Chapter in celebration of their 25 years of helping charitable organizations. In addition to having more than 30 health and wellness-related exhibitors, they have organized live entertainment, demonstrations, guest speakers and more. Complimentary cake and coffee will be provided and many exhibitors are giving out free samples. Tickets are $5 at the gate. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Anderton Therapeutic Garden Society to help fund the wheelchair accessible pathways around the Gardens on Anderton, (2012 Anderton Road, Comox).
