What You Will Discover at Belvedere-Tiburon's Elixir
The feng shui of Ark Row
Tiburon's Ark Row is a place of magic. Rich in history, this unique
location has managed to retain the essence of old San Francisco
much better than The City itself has.
Yet Ark Row has an exclusive appeal that is all its own. What is it,
really, that makes this tiny area of Belvedere-Tiburon so
enchanting? Even people who don't believe in this kind of thing
say that Ark Row has a dream-like quality. They say it's like
you're walking into a fairy tale, that it's somehow mystical.
Ark Row really is mystical. What gives it this distinctive
elegance? Along with the rest of Belvedere-Tiburon, it has
outstanding feng shui. This feng shui is why I came to Belvedere-
Attaining the Elixir
Here, on the shores of Corinthian Island, nestled between the
Corinthian Yacht Club and the San Francisco Yacht Club, right in
the heart of the San Francisco Bay, is the site of what my teachers
told me would be an unrepeatable happening.
What is it?
We're creating an
This elixir is really difficult to find. In fact, it's impossible to make
unless all of the conditions are just right.
What's the elixir? It's the essence of what each of us is searching
for. The elixir is your elixir. I can help you to get a taste of
it. Once you get that taste, I can teach you how to find it in every
area of your life.
How can I help you attain this elixir? The tools I use are
acupuncture, Chinese herbs, medical qi gong and feng shui.
I use the tools. The elixir comes into being when we use these tools
together in the context of your life.
The elixir isn't the ultimate cure. It's your reward for living a life
of excellence. It's a kind of natural feedback system. It tells you
when you're on the right track and moving in the right direction.
Something unrepeatable is happening in Belvedere-
If it's challenging for an individual to cultivate her or his own
elixir, imagine how hard it would be to discover what happens
when a group of people achieves it in the same place and at the
same time. This kind of an event is very rare. Wise ones say it's
only happened a few times in all of human history.
Yet I believe it's beginning to happen right here in Belvedere-
How and why is it happening this way? I don't know. Maybe
we're just lucky. Then again, maybe it's serving a higher purpose
that we don't yet understand.

Medicine to bring your life to a new level of excellence. Part of
that process involves healing aesthetics and the aesthetics of

Come by and take a look through the window at Elixir. What
you'll see is a dynamic, living and ever-changing expression of
feng shui in practice.
The displays in Elixir's window teach us about the feng shui of
time. They integrate the Belvedere-Tiburon community with the
qualities of time and right timing. These studies are based on the
months of the solar year from the
Chinese feng shui calendar.
Elixir's feng shui window displays
are part of an ongoing dialogue
that I have with
