Money is more than a bank balance; it’s a reflection of the overall abundance in your life. Now, a CPA and feng shui practitioner presents an unusual and valuable application of the ancient Eastern tradition of feng shui. Delving into all of the life forces that affect financial health, The Feng Shui of Abundance is not just a monetary makeover; it is a whole-being program whose benefits include: • Locating the wealth area of your office or home • Dislodging clogged energy in your career • Drawing on the five currents of the “River of Gold” to address debt, personal spending, and your own potential for abundance • Creating a financial plan that speaks to your dreams and desires A liberating book for those who feel financially “trapped,” and for anyone who wants to achieve his or her potential, The Feng Shui of Abundance incorporates all three feng shui aspects—wind, water, and energy—unleashing the forces that control true wealth, creating clearer harmony between your money, goals, and dreams. This is the perfect handbook for anyone seeking genuine peace of mind as well as financial prosperity.

Optical Detectors For Astronomy Ii

th The 4 ESO CCO Workshop, Optical Detectors for Astronomy, was held during September 13-16, 1999 at its usual location, the headquarters of the European Southern Observatory in Garching, Germany. We prefer to remember this workshop as a "meeting of friends", who came to Garching to visit ESO and to present their work, rather than a formal meeting. Based on our experience with the 1996 ESO CCO workshop, we deliberately put emphasis on creating an environment that encouraged the participants to stay together and informally exchange ideas. These informal events began with a tour of the BWM auto factory and continued with a reception at "SchloB Beletic", the conference dinner at a real SchloB of the Bavarian International School (where the participants enjoyed basket, baseball, table soccer, rock climbing and eventually dancing) and concluded with a tour of the Paulaner Brewery and dinner at the Seehaus in the Englisher Garten. The lunch "Biergarten", adjacent to the poster session area, was a daily meeting point. The result was a good mixture of excellent presentations and posters, collected in these Proceedings, and many occasions for people to get in touch and to have fun together, as witnessed by the selection of workshop pictures that we randomly placed between papers. This book contains a special contribution.
