Introducing Katherine Czerlau-Lima
Whistling Gardens NEW Certified Garden Design
& Feng Shui Practitioner

"I have always found inspiration, comfort and creativity in nature having spent time living, traveling and working in various locales and surroundings. The intrigue in the connection of ones environment and how it relates to our 'inner self' lead me to the study of feng shui"

What is Feng Shui? Dating back to as early as 4000 BC, Feng Shui simply means "wind" and "water" and together the words represent harmony and balance, a perfect compliment when building your garden sanctuary and home.

As a garden/landscape professional and business owner for 13 years, Katherine discovered and began implementing feng shui principles into her client's landscape design. Upon learning about the changes and beauty feng shui can bring to one's environment and life, she mentored with Rhea Peake of EnviromancyTM in Vancouver throughout 2001 and 2002.

Establishing the understanding and the importance of using the right plant material, while making a connection not only with nature and the environment, but also with each individual client to determine their intentions, goals and desires soon became realized. By creating harmony between the two, the ability to manifest these intentions and create meaningful connections was granted.

Throughout 2012, a two year intensive training journey with the Western School Of Feng ShuiTM began, where she earned her certification as a Practitioner of Essential Feng Shui®.

Today, Katherine offers Feng Shui Consultations for the garden, landscape design, home and business through her practice Evolving Spaces www.evolvingshui.com

In addition to offering workshops on a variety of topics, Whistling Gardens guests can now embark on their own garden design discovery journey while planting your own sanctuary through Katherine's workshop series!

Feng Shui empowers participants to transform their environment to enhance and create greater harmony in their life. It can improve health, increase prosperity, improve and attract relationships, expand creativity and so much more.
