(Courtesy photo) Renowned landscaper Ted Carter will be joined by Calen and Jini Rayne, experts in geomancy and feng shui, to present, Sacred Landscapes: Healing the Land on Tuesday, Nov. 13 at Scarborough Public Library.

With more than 100 years of collective experience, Carter and the Raynes will focus on how information related to traditional feng shui, geomancy and landscape design can better situate us in a fast-paced mobile society.

The program is the second of three events being offered at the library in partnership with the Camden Conference exploring the 2019 conference theme, Is This China’s Century?

Jini Rayne will discuss the role and importance of feng shui in Chinese culture and offer examples of basic feng shui principles that participants can apply themselves.

That will be followed by an introduction to geomancy and working with earth energies as practiced in ancient China presented by Calen.

Carter will then explain how he uses information from both principles to formulate a landscape design in harmony with the land, drawing from his work with archetypes and the sacred feminine.

The event is free to attend and open to the public.
