- Experience the body as a mirror of the mind and discover how thoughts, emotions, and habits continually impact and shape the physical body.
- In Chinese, the word kou means both mouth and front door: the door is the gateway to the home, the mouth is the gateway to the body, and both are responsible for letting chi (life energy) into our dwelling place. In feng shui terms, a solid front door, or one with small glass panes, will retain chi in the home. However, if you already have a transparent door, fitting a curtain on the inside will serve the same purpose.
- Read a book set in the area you'll be visiting before you go, perhaps by a local author. This could be a novel, or history, or nature, or politics - whatever most interests you. Try to make connections between what you read and what you see or hear.
