DR. ROBERT SVOBODA introducing and signing his latest book VASTU: BREATHING LIFE INTO SPACE. Svoboda is the first Westerner to graduate from a college of Ayurveda and is licensed to practice this classical medicine in India. He has written extensively on the subject. In his new book he takes on Vastu, the classical Indian art of architectural form. Please join us for an interesting discussion and q&a about houses, interior spaces, gardens. and relationship to the land.
Like the perhaps better known Feng Shui, Vastu is a spiritual approach to architecture that requires a basic understanding of balance and alignment to create good living and working spaces. Vastu teaches that each human being is a living microcosm of the universe, a self enclosed cosmos that mirrors the giant cosmos outside. Every human life entails a web of relationships between the smaller cosmos and the larger.
Dr. Svoboda has been traveling the world lecturing, consulting, teaching and writing since 1985. Over the next six months he will be speaking in Moscow, California, London, and India. This appearance in Peterborough is a rare opportunity to meet and hear the renowned scholar.
