An Introduction to Feng Shui: (pronounced Fung Shway) which literally means "Wind & Water" two natural elements that flow and circulate the earth, is an ancient philosophy, science and art that shows us how our environments can affect how the energy flows or does not flow in a space. It teaches us about the dynamic relationship between humans and our environments and allows us to see that where we live and where we work can affect us physically and emotionally. In this introduction to Feng Shui learn how to apply an instrumental element of Feng Shui analysis, the Bagua. The Ba-Gua enables you to discern how the areas of your space (home, garden and office) are impacting the corresponding areas of your life. All spaces affect you; the important question is which areas affect what? The Bagua provides the first key to answering this question. The Feng Shui Bagua is an energetic map, a tool to diagnose energy qualities in your space. Using this map, you divide definable space into nine sections or areas, each with its own corresponding set of influences and energies. Learn how to bring vitality, clarity, and prosperity into your life!

Developing Intuition to Enhance Feng Shui Practice: Learn various meditation techniques along with Qi Gong, Tai Chi and more to begin connecting with your higher consciousness, and understand the significance of mindfulness and intuition in the practice of Feng Shui. We will also make the connection between the Chakra energy centers and Feng Shui Bagua for recognizing where the health of the home and workspace connects with the health of those who dwell in these spaces. Since Feng Shui brings about an ability to view living and work environments from all the senses, learning how to increase inner awareness is essential for quick assessments of space and its energy.

Feng Shui Architecture & Interior Design: Starts with the conscious arrangement of furniture in a space in order to harness and manipulate the energy. Environments that are visually appealing and physically comfortable create positive energy which will support you, rather than deplete you. Learn how to recognize the flow of chi' that is articulated in design elements found in furniture collections, introducing a sense of calm to our spaces. Be the Color Alchemist and understand the design theories of incorporating the Five Natural Elements into your conceptual design. Enjoy our workshop in this study weekend and learn how to create color boards, work with floor plans and specify materials looking at shapes and scale. The practice of Feng Shui has become an irreplaceable component in the design process today. Join us for an interactive weekend and create something new in your environment!

The Tao of Feng Shui - Connecting with the Modern World: Learn how the Chinese shaman-kings studied the land and determined where to site homes and important buildings. You will learn about the four celestial animals and the four directions, dragon veins containing earth energies, and how to apply these ancient principles to modern-day property analysis. You'll learn how roadways mimic the ancient waterways, how they effect the qi entering a building and methods to resolve inauspicious siting. Examples shown through photographs, diagrams and maps will help to demonstrate the effects of beneficial and harmful qi and how to analyze the land through "feng shui" eyes. A walking tour of a local village will illustrate these concepts and help students to become more aware of their surroundings.

Feng Shui Space Clearing, Ceremonies & Rituals: There is more to Feng Shui than moving furniture around to create a pleasing look. During Feng Shui consultations, the practitioner often finds the need to clear the environment of physical clutter along with energetic clutter that may be causing significant obstacles in the space and its occupants--creating a sense of feeling stuck. Learn how to recognize clutter variations, the importance of de-cluttering physical space, and methods for clearing energetic clutter to remove obstacles that may not be visible yet felt. Begin incorporating clearing techniques, sacred ceremonies and blessing rituals to enhance space.
