Our Nature

EP 16: The Architecture of Nature With Vaastu Consultant Hunter Cressman

Episode Notes

For this week’s episode of Our Nature, I chat with Vaastu Consultant Hunter Cressman. I’m guessing you’ve probably never heard of Vaastu before. I know I hadn’t until Hunter spoke about it during a vedic meditation class at the Spring Meditation Center back in June. Vaastu is the architecture of nature. It is incredibly precise and specific. It’s designed to create well-being in a space through a series of mathematical principles that are applied to determine the direction a building is facing, its measurements, the materials its made of, etc. “Each one of us, we have a fundamental frequency inside of ourselves,” says Cressman. “And what we want to do is align our frequency with the frequency of the building, so that they resonate together in harmony.”

In this episode, you’ll learn the core principles of Vaastu, how it differs from Feng Shui, where to see examples of vaastu buildings, why measurements need to be within the width of a hair, how to pay tribute to the culture and people that are the originators of Vaastu, how to conceptualize and contextualize the ancient texts of Vaastu within our modern society, and how to create Vaastu energy even if you don’t have the means or desire to construct a Vaastu building. I’m so excited for you to hear about Vaastu from Hunter. I think he’s on the forefront of a new way of building and imagining our spaces and I’m thrilled to bring you this knowledge before it reaches the masses! Please enjoy my conversation with Vaastu Consultant Hunter Cressman.

“The Veda is a body of wisdom that has been around for thousands of years. It's knowledge of nature, knowledge of our central nature as humans, and understanding our nature through practices such as meditation, yoga and ayurvedic medicine.” - Hunter Cressman

“Vaastu is a series of mathematical principles that are followed in order to bring about a resonance inside of a contained space that contains qualities of well-being, so that any inhabitants in that contained space, will resonate with those qualities and benefit from the design of the space.” - Hunter Cressman

“Vaastu is pure, unmanifest energy – and that pure consciousness contains all qualities of consciousness.” - Hunter Cressman

“Each one of us has a fundamental frequency inside of ourselves. And what we want to do is align our frequency with the frequency of the building so that they resonate together in harmony.” - Hunter Cressman

“There’s a subtle geometry to our central nature and Vaastu mimics that geometry in order to create this resonance between the two from our inner nature to the outside. Vaastu is a way of using the containment of space or architecture to awaken us from the inside out.” - Hunter Cressman
