When Rhea Peake was growing up, her mother continually rearranged the furniture, striving for an appealing decor and atmosphere. Somehow, with each rearrangement came subtle changes in the family dynamic or habits. It is a thread, Peake says, that has carried through to her own adult occupations, which have included producing TV shows, managing a restaurant and working as a French-pastry chef. “In my work, there’s always been an element of presentation,” says Peake, “and how making things beautiful affects people.” One day she came across The Western Guide to Feng Shui, a book about adapting the Chinese art of arranging environments to improve the flow of energy or “chi.” That’s exactly what I do! Peake thought. The book gave her a way to apply the principles to Western lifestyles and architecture, and she now is making it her life’s work.

“‘There’s a lot to be gained by following basic feng shui guidelines’, Peake says. If you wish your life was better – the first step to actually living that way is to create the environment. ‘Think of your house as a movie set. If you watch a television show and the set doesn’t reinforce the images that they’re trying to portray, we don’t believe it. We have to do the same thing with our own personal spaces.”

“Vancouver-based interior designer and Western feng shui practitioner Rhea Peake was a key speaker at the fall home show at BC Place this year. Since I was there doing my own schtick with the Renovation Council of the Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association I decided to take in one of her seminars between my own shows. What I learned was a real surprise. Feng Shui is simply form and function, lifestyle enhancing practicality. “
–Feng Shui = Common Sense by Gail Ferrier in All About Homes
“Feng Shui se traduit littéralement par vent et eau. Cette expression décrit le flux naturel et la force dégagée par ces éléments au cours de leur chemin. Dans les sociétés asiatiques, cette loi de la nature qu’est le flot du vent et de l’eau, a été étudiée depuis plus de 3000 ans par les penseurs : philosophes, mathématiciens, scientifiques, maîtres spirituels et guérisseurs. Pendant des millénaires, ces grands esprits ont observé, analysé, synthétisé et raffiné cette connaissance pour la compiler dans leur grand livre de la Science, le I Ching. Ils ont décrit ce flot d’énergie qui régit la vie comme étant le chi, et l’ordre naturel des choses régies selon cette énergie comme étant le feng shui.”
