Uncluttered- Intro to Classical Feng Shui
Karla Soto Mullins, My KaiZen Home
Karla has used the principles of Feng Shui for over 20 years. In the beginning, I had no concept of the fullness of the subject or the total personal transformation that I would enjoy as my knowledge and understanding of Feng Shui grew. I decided to take the plunge to become a certified Classical Feng Shui Consultant under the great Katie Weber and her Red Lotus School of Feng Shui. I am also trained in Space Clearing and House Blessings. For quite some time it has been my dream to share the wonderful benefits of Feng Shui and Space Clearing and with that, My KaiZen Home was born! I offer local in-person consultations as well as long-distance consultations. My background also includes a degree in Holistic Healthcare from the Southwest Institute of Healing Arts with emphasis on Nutrition, Western Herbalism, and Life Coaching. “Improve your environment, improve your life”.
