SPIRITUAL RESUME for Yarrow, IFSG
Author, Certified Feng Shui Practitioner, Consultant, Professional Speaker, Facilitator
102 Roosevelt Court,
Annapolis MD 21403-2336
Yarrow began exploring energy in the 70’s utilizing at-hand knowledge of Native American traditions, awareness of life experiences and applying this knowledge to her own life. Her curiosity of energy evolved into the study and practice of Feng Shui after attending a private workshop in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Yarrow recognized instantly that Feng Shui is the energy work with which she resonates and sees immediate benefit when principles are applied.
Yarrow’s “sense of a wave” is exemplified by being in the forefront of new information. As an author, professional speaker, Feng Shui consultant and practitioner and workshop facilitator, she helps people forge creative lifestyles using unfamiliar concepts. Her free-lance writing and teaching synthesizes traditional thinking with creative living by weaving in spiritual Eastern thought with the anatomy of energy.

The other day, a woman was photographing the chair in the window of the art studio and said, "What a great work of art in the window". I felt so proud of my work with Yarrow and the energy that she brought to re-crafting the office space of our studio. I have played around with Feng Shui concepts through the years, but hadn't ever really put enough effort into tackling a whole space. Yarrow came in and transformed our space — making sense of all our functional needs and re-using regular objects that became treasured. I am thinking differently about the front of my building and how our public enters. It makes a significant difference to our business to have the elements aligned. Thank you, Yarrow.
