Enlightened by Design offers simple, practical ways to re-align homes, gardens, workspaces—and lives—with the forces that govern the natural world.

Based on Tibetan style feng shui, readers learn to create intentional environments in harmony with heaven and earth, the four directions, and the five styles of energy that arise from them. Filled with wonderful examples and illustrations from many wisdom traditions—Native American, Celtic, African, and Asian—it shows how we are one with nature; and how, from a ontemplative point of view, ecology and good design are one and the same.

Hailed by members of ADSPSR (Architects, Designers, and Space Planners for Social Responsibility), it takes a mindful, or awake, approach to uncovering the ordinary magic and extraordinary power of place. Filled with wonderful illustrations from many wisdom traditions—Native American, Celtic, African, and Asian—it shows how we are one with nature and how, from a contemplative point of view, ecology and good design are one and the same. Widely acclaimed, Enlightened by Design has been translated into Spanish, German, Chinese, and Korean.

Helen Berliner has written on design for numerous newspapers, journals, and magazines, including a column, “Environmental Design,” for the Shambhala Sun.
