About this course:

Learn about Feng Shui Poetry, a form created by West Hollywood Poet Laureate Jen Cheng as a way to write poetry with a new perspective through a lens of Feng Shui principles. What we have to say can go through a lens of feelings or themes to help it be more powerful. We can transform quiet whispers into something more clear or loud feelings into something actionable. The five elements–Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, Wood–are a way to meditate on your message. No experience needed. Come with curiosity.
