Time passes.  
Things change. 
The world around us evolves. 

park_snow.jpg When we get to this time of year the stark reality that there are endings and beginnings is hard to avoid. Goings and comings of months, seasons, years. We know from our studies of Chinese thought that there are larger cycles. The 5 elements rotate in cycles. The animal year horoscopes, the 20-year cycle of "Ages"; the 60-year cycle of the 12 animal years passing through the 5 element phases. 

We also know from living through time that it isn't always a cakewalk(!)... and that the walk through the cycles of life can be strewn with the unexpected. This is why it is so important to find the beauty and grace in life as another year, another season, another cycle winds down and a new one is emerging on the threshold.  
Mark your calendar now!
Our FSIM "holiday" tradition centers on the Annual Meeting...coming up on January 12, 2016! 

As always, this year we will honor some of our long-standing traditions (festive gathering, cash bar, packed agenda, vendors with lovely items for sale). And we will create new ones. (Less food, more meaning!) We will be honoring the past; we will be welcoming and embracing the future.

In keeping with the season, this coming Annual Meeting will be an exceptional recognition of the life cycles of FSIM. 

First and foremost, I am eager to announce that the stars and schedules have lined up for our featured guest speaker to be FSIM's founding President, Carole Hyder.We are looking forward to Carole's presence among us and hearing her perspective on The Evolution of Feng Shui: Where it Stands Today. To make the evening even more special we are welcoming both Hinda Abrahamson, President Emerita, and Andrew Hong, founding Vice-President to participate in the meeting. 

Gratitude. Belonging. Affirmation. Touch. (Read more)
