On 3 August 2008 SharedVision reported: Canadians are being introduced to the ancient design principle called vastu, which combines nature's elements to create health and harmony in one's work and home environment. It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring fulfilment to the field of health.

Shared Vision reported, 'The vastu combines five elements—earth, ether (Earth's magnetic energy), air, fire, and water.'

Also considered are the location of the site, the building's orientation, and placement of furniture.

The article continued, 'It also promotes the use of natural and environmentally friendly materials, says Salt Spring Island's Ruth Anne Taves, a coordinator of Maharishi Sthapatya Veda design—considered by its followers to be the purest form of vastu.'

Ms Taves was quoted as saying, 'While you don't read about this in the Vedic texts—because natural materials were all that was available at the time—both for the health and well-being of the individual and the environment, Maharishi Sthapatya Veda encourages and promotes natural products and toxin-free materials.'

The article noted that Salt Spring Island (British Columbia) currently has the 'highest concentration of vastu dwellings in Canada' because the area has the proper slope and orientation.

'Taves says, Salt Spring Island is considered one of the five most sattvic (pure) places on Earth, as deemed by the founder of Maharishi Sthapatya Veda design, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. As a result, many practitioners of Transcendental Meditation build their vastu homes there,' the article stated.

The Shared Vision article notes that 'several experts, including Taves, feel that it's not typically feasible to apply vastu to an existing building'; however, one important principle mentioned is that if one lives 'in a house that is not east- or north-facing (the two most auspicious directions), Taves suggests closing up any south- or west-facing doors, and using east or north entrances instead.'
