The Ancient Art of Dowsing 
~Testimonial By Debbie Miller, FSIM Vice President

FSIM board
FSIM Board of Directors with Annette Rugolo
This year's July Quarterly Meeting was especially enlightening! Our speaker was Annette Rugolo. Annette is a certified Master Instructor for the Inner Diamond Meditation and Diamond Dowsing programs in the Marie Diamond Transformation School and has given Master classes to students worldwide.

Annette shared her knowledge of the ancient history of dowsing and also illustrated the dowsing process in our meeting room at the Marsh! The results were obvious. Everyone in the room had a chance to experience the energy shifts.

Annette was also gracious in sharing a download to her E-Book "Listen Up! Your Home is Talking to You", a download of her meditation "Tubes of Light Personal Guided Meditation",Light Meditation for Your Home and a special invitation to her next Beginning Dowsing class with all that attended.

We are all very fortunate to have Annette here in the Twin Cities and a supporter of our Feng Shui Institute of the Midwest!

FSIM August Special Event Workshop

"Introduction to Face Reading" - with Ralph Dehner 

Ralph Dehner
Friday, August 3, 2018  

6:30 - 7:00 PM Networking/Socializing
7:00 - 9:00 PM Program

Lake Harriett Spiritual Community 4401 Upton Ave So., Mpls

Open to the public: Members $27, Non-Members $36
(2.0 CEU Credit) 


Face Reading or physiognomy has been practiced for thousands of years. It means interpreting facial structure to learn about the inner person. Every face is perfect and reveals in its shape both our gifts and our challenges. I like to call our facial structure our "soul print". This information will empower the participant in situations where we often feel less than powerful - relationships, both therapeutic and personal, sitting on either side of the interview table, in team meetings and, just for the fun of it, the dating game.

Through lecture, discussion, and group exercises, participants in this 2-hour workshop will understand the history of Physiognomy, explore the therapeutic use in building relationships and in understanding work preferences and learning styles.

Ralph Dehner, BS, COTA/L is a Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant with a degree in Holistic Studies/Wellness Management and is a regular presenter at local, state and international conferences. In 2005, Ralph completed his studies in Physiognomy with best- selling author and international lecturer Rose Rosetree. He has done Physiognomy workshops and presentations at the Ohio Occupational Therapy Conference, throughout the United States as well as in Seoul, So. Korea and Sidney, Australia. Ralph has consulted with HR departments on hiring decisions and diversity training.

Ralph also is a Certified Tai Chi Master/Trainer and Qi Gong Instructor and Master/Teacher and practitioner of several forms of energy healing techniques and holds regular workshops to train health care providers and other interested people. Sign-up Today!

Celebrate Wind & Water School of Feng Shui's 20th Anniversary 
~Message from Carole Hyder, FSIM Founding Member, President Emerita

Earlier this year, during one of our Wind & Water School strategy meetings, Lisa Janusz (registrar/faculty/partner) and I came to the realization that 2018 marked the School's 20th anniversary. We decided such tenacity deserved a celebration.

On 9-9-18 (no accident about the date), The School will honor those who have been students, those who have opened their homes and businesses to us, as well as those who have promoted the School's vision in some way. There will be food, a cash bar, a wall of honor for students, photos to reminisce by, a short program-----hey! there's a School song in the works!

If you've been part of the School in any way, this event is for you. And we will be
honored to have you be part of our celebration. Watch for an upcoming invitation.

I'd also like to thank everyone who has worked on our FSIM Web Committee (Elaine Anderson, Debbie Miller, Ellen Johnson, and Kim Julen) and the rest of our FSIM Board for all of the work and input over the last year and a half, as well as Cheryl Larson for establishing and creating our first website. 

Community News  

Our Feng Shui friend member, Cindy Eyden's 92 year old mother, Doris Costello received her Angel Wings on Tuesday, June 26th with her daughters by her side. Please hold Cindy and her family in your loving hearts and healing prayers. A Mother's Love lives on forever.     
We came together as one for the C3 Summer Solstice gathering at Debbie Miller's backyard around the bonfire in community with meditation, reflection, releasing the old and calling in the renewed yang summer energies. The power of being in circle with compassionate soul-sisters in nature is food for the soul. Not to mention eating smore's around the bonfire certainly marks the start of the summer tasty, sweet treats. Our next C3 gathering is on September 21st, in St. Paul.
