Silent Partner

Landscape designer Robert George has a silent partner at every consult with a client: Mother Earth. "A client may have read a ton of design books, and I'll sit and pay close attention to every aspect of their environment while they tell me what they want," George says. "I have a little folding table and chairs, and I'll take them to the spot they had in mind, and walk them through what they have articulated. Then I ask them how it feels in that spot. Then I take the table and chairs to where I intuitively feel the connection, and they'll say, 'This feels great!' I have a sense for the Earth's deeper crystal grid, for finding the energetic invitation rather than shoving a square peg into a round hole. I have no idea how I learned it, unless it has to do with spending many, many hours as a kid building forts in the woods." Robertgeorgedesigngroup.com
