Tracy Miller - Gazelle Feng Shui
Don't miss our next gathering! Tracy Miller, the owner of Gazelle Feng Shui, in Atlanta, will share her training and wisdom with us. She will present for 30 minutes and then will take questions.
Gazelle Feng Shui serves residential and commercial clients throughout the US. Ms. Miller is adept at interpreting this Eastern environmental art into a practice that has meaning for Westerners. She is a popular lecturer on the topic of feng shui and has taught seminars for the Sherwin Williams Company, the American Institute of Architects, the Midsouth Business Roundtable and the Rotary Club, among others.
Ms. Miller holds a diploma from the Feng Shui Institute of America and has studied extensively with various feng shui masters in the United States and internationally. She
studied Cultural Anthropology at the graduate level at Emory University. It was while researching other cultures that she came across the topic of feng shui. The encounter changed the course of her career.

"The primary purpose of education is not knowledge, but action.” —Herbert Spencer
Embark on a transformative journey with us on December 21 at 11:00 am CST during our Third Act Zoom meeting. Guided by Herbert Spencer's wisdom, we believe that the primary purpose of a MEA experience is not mere inspiration but profound transformation.
Join us as we delve into our Baja AHA's—those enlightening moments that sparked real change in our lives. Share your own significant AHA from your MEA experience and let's explore together how these revelations have dynamically shaped both small and large aspects of our lives. This promises to be a gathering of insightful reflections and shared wisdom, creating a space for meaningful connections and personal growth. Don't miss out on this opportunity to be part of a community dedicated to turning knowledge into impactful action. Don’t have a AHA to share? That’s OK. Come to listen.
We’ll also be brainstorming Third Act Topics for 2024. Some of the Ideas for 2024 collected so far include:
· Repeating Open Mic Day (maybe March and September)
· Revisiting this year's most registered for topic: Finances & Aging
· Dealing with the loss of a spouse/partner through death or divorce. Or, more positive: Moving on after the loss of a spouse/partner.
· Coaching – Become a coach -- get a coach – Robert Lara = retirement coach – value for money
You’ve traveled far, now here you are! Continue your learning journey and deepen your connections through exclusive events, programs and services to support what’s next.
Joining Corazón means you have a credit toward any program: MEA Online, 5- or 7-day Baja Workshops, or a Sabbatical Session.
From private workshops with authors and masters to film screenings with filmmaker Q&As, your membership gives you access to MEA’s phenomenal braintrust.
We are eco-conscious about our swag. Receive an Alumni-only MEA tote bag, handmade by a Mexican women’s collective, filled w/ a bunch of special items.
Each season the co-founders host an online event inspired by group experiences in Baja with old and new favorites. Just come prepared for effervescence!
Perhaps nothing has more impact than contributing to the flourishing of younger generations. Your gift will be inscribed on a plaque at our Baja campus.
