Feng means wind and Shui literally means water. It is likely these words were chosen to describe the flow of chi (a vital energy present in everything), and to show that we are part of nature and connected to everything, by the continuous flow of wind (air) and water through our bodies.
Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese art that observes the influence of time and space on our lives. Its main function is to help us succeed in life. Using feng shui we can help make changes to ourselves in terms of our thinking, emotions and behaviours. These changes can result in greater success in terms of our careers, relationships, health and enjoyment of life. In practice feng shui can lead to better sleep, less stress, greater focus, feeling happier at home, greater inspiration and a more natural environment.
The practice focusses on the experience and observation of the here and now. An observation and multi-dimensional analysis (energy, emotional, psychological, aesthetic and physical) of a house or land. This study of the human relationship with nature helps us discover ways in which we can work with nature and even use nature’s cycles to do more in life with less effort.
In a modern context feng shui is being used for the design of airports, corporate offices, shops and houses. For example, Simon has been deeply involved in the design of the British Airways Waterside Headquarters, the T2G Paris Airport terminal, The Body Shop redesign and Mandali Retreat Village. Research is showing how feng shui can influence people in their homes or workplace and the course includes evidence based feng shui.


Feng shui can be applied in different ways, such has:


To arrange your home so it is more supportive to being successful in life. This does not cost very much to implement and requires minimal changes to a home. It can include plants, water features, images, changing the positioning of furniture and other items, fresh flowers, sea salt, candles as well as reducing EMF.
Working within the domestic symbolical realm, following the inhabitant’s rhythms and cycles is another powerful form of healing the space. Here the home can influence the unconscious mind and trigger responses that are not known in the conscious mind but felt by the people living there.


Use this option when you wish to use feng shui to help decorate or renovate a home in a way that creates the ideal atmosphere to be happy. This includes the choice of colours, flooring, lighting, layout of rooms, placement of kitchens and bathrooms, along with the items used in a healing feng shui. This option can be used working alongside architects and interior designers.


For new build projects we can use feng shui to create plans for the ideal home. This includes the orientation of the home, layout of rooms, entrances, windows, materials, eco heating, along with items from feng shui design and healing feng shui.


The course combines the principles of feng shui with the various calculations to assess a home and the people living there, along with the development of the sensitivity, consciousness and awareness of chi, to include intuition in the creation of happy, healthy and harmonious living or working spaces.
The first level concentrates on the traditional basic concepts and the contemporary approaches, focusing on understanding how feng shui works and reasoning behind the principles, so that students can apply the original theories freely and able to be experimental, creative and open minded, rather than just follow rules.
This first level is focussed on helping students learn feng shui and apply it to their own life. The second level prepares them to become a feng shui consultant. Students will have a holistic understanding of feng shui that includes a range of styles. This allows some students to choose a more academic classical style, some a more functional, practical design orientated style and others a more intuitive style based on sensing chi.
The trainees enrolled in this course, learn the tools to carry out consultations, analysis and interpretations of the space and its inhabitants. Students will also have basis for a lively and constructive analysis of their own development.
Each level consists of 14 days with 104 hours of tuition, taught in English. For each level there will be a maximum of 16 students.
