What is Vastu?

"Vastu" means environment, one's home or land; "Shastra" is science. Vastu Shastra, or "Vastu" as it is commonly called, is the Vedic science that identifies the energetic effects of the environment on an individual.  The concepts of Vastu eventually traveled from their birthplace in India throughout Asia and finally to China and Japan where they provided the base for the development of what is now known as Feng Shui.

Vastu is more than just aesthetics.  It is the art of creating attractive, harmonious designs that support physical and spiritual health.  Magnetic fields, gravitational fields, light, energy, and color all have an affect on the human body.  If all the elements in a space are balanced properly, the effect is a healthy, positive one.  If the space is out of balance, the result can be misfortune and problems.  Envisions for Living uses the art of Vastu to make your home a healthy, harmonious place to live.   Consultations by the hour or by the project. Hourly fees are $65
