New Year, New Home: Q&A with Anjie Cho

We know January can feel like a bit of a slog, but it's also a great time to stand back and take stock of where you are and what you want to achieve this year. If you feel like your home is in need of a re-design, big or small, now's the time to make sure your environment is supporting and nurturing you as much as possible. We spoke to Anjie Cho, architect, feng shui consultant and author of Holistic Spaces, about how to maximize the potential of your space and get 2019 off to the best possible start!

Hi Anjie! So what are holistic spaces?

Space is physical, emotional, energetic, and so holistic spaces is a way to look at all the space around you in an integrated way. When you can begin to see that your inner and outer spaces are connected, it gives you insight and joy. It's a mindful way to work with the environment around us, so that we can see the magic in our everyday life. Every moment and every space has a gift to offer. 

When did you first become interested in feng shui?

In my late twenties I was pretty miserable and looking for happiness outside of myself. On a trip to the Buddhist country of Thailand, I had an epiphany during a Reiki session where I realized that when I returned to New York City I would begin a journey to find contentment within myself. So, I started studying meditation, yoga, and naturally next came feng shui. I was an architect so I wanted to bring this mindfulness into my work as well.

Feed Your Wild: How To Bring Balance To Your Home, Health + Life Using The Art Of Feng Shui With Anjie Cho

featured this month on Wildly rooted

This month I was featured on Wildly Rooted’s podcast, Feed Your Wild, with Venessa Rodriguez! We chat about what feng shui means, my journey to feng shui and architecture, what a typical feng shui consultation is like and so much more!

Practicing Feng Shui is a way to have mindfulness in respect to your surroundings - all of the little details impact your wellbeing, your stress levels and how you show up in the world.
— Anjie Cho

Consider for a moment that everything in your environment, what I call your Sacred Ecology, plays a role in creating the conditions for growing the YOU that stands as yourself today and the future (whether we like it or not)… While it may not feel like it initially, this is a highly empowering thing to grasp.

How to Spring Clean & Green your Beauty Cabinet with Anjie Cho

In the late summer of 2015, I was in Brookfield Place in lower Manhattan where I found a book titled “108 Ways to Create Holistic Spaces“. I was in a bit of a rush, but snapped a photo of this because I knew this was something I needed to read. At the time I was with my Mom and said “I would love to meet this designer one day”. A year later, my friend Katie Hess invited me to a super moon soirée on the roof top of building in Flatiron. I sat down next to Anjie and we started talking and I immediately knew we were going to be friends. It wasn’t until in 2017 that I had finally got around to organizing my photos when I found this photo I had taken in 2015 to remind me I wanted to read this book, and to my surprise the author was my incredible friend Anjie Cho! Since getting to know Anjie and watching her on YouTube, I often turn to Anjie when I’m feeling like something could be made better or for practical solutions to improve the flow of energy and balance in my space. Learn more from her podcasts HERE.

I wanted to find out more about Anjie for some advice on how to Spring Clean our beauty cabinets and asked her for some advice…Check it out!
