These are some of our past feng shui events at Elixir. Sorry we haven't updated these pages for such a long time, but we've spent the last 12 or so years actually doing all the things we talk about here on these pages, which doesn't leave a lot of space for playing the historian. Rest assured it's all still happening now more that ever you can participate in feng shui events such as these:
Guest Artist Installation 2009:
Heather Martin - Labyrinths of Time
Inside Elixir's waiting room is a very intimate study in the feng shui of time. It's a year-long art installation by local artist Heather Martin .
Heather is taking the feng shui of time very seriously. She's creating a painting, sketch or other work every day to capture and transmit the essence of that day. Heather is designing each of these works to be a healing tool.
This installation began on the summer solstice of 2009. It will extend to the summer solstice of 2010. Each of these works will be on display at Elixir in the week after she creates them. They'll also go into our online gallery for your review and commentary.
Heather will create a labyrinth of all these works together for the community to walk at the 2010 Tiburon Arts Festival.
You can meet Heather at the festival this year. She'll be at Elixir's
sidewalk display at 108 Main Street on August 22 & 23, 2009.
Here's what Heather has to say about Labyrinths of Time.

Seasonal Live Tea Tastings
A strong component of the art of tea is seasonal. The highest-level
tea craftsmen produce specialty teas through many points of the
year specifically for those times. These incredible teas bring us
into a unique balance that is deeply connected with the feng shui of
Chinese New Year Parade
A feng shui extravaganza! Ancient medicine aligned the individual and society with the qualities of time. This is your opportunity to harmonize with the Chinese New Year in a genuine ritual of gargantuan proportions.

The Belvedere-Tiburon Long Now Group
This group has formed to get real and get specific about the long- term picture for Marin County, the Tiburon Peninsula and the influence we can have on the rest of the world.
The Belvedere-Tiburon Long Now Group meets on the last Wednesday of the month. It is inspired and informed by the the Long Now Foundation .
Cloud Contemplation Groups
Cloud contemplation is a primary Taoist resource for harmonizing the mind with the feng shui of the moment. Belvedere-Tiburon is uniquely suited for this activity.
We gather in the moment, witness and participate in cloud
contemplation from near the Tiburon Ferry Landing...
I invite you to enjoy this wisdom and observe how it
transforms your life,
