It would be my pleasure to help you gain a new perspective about looking at the spaces in your home or office. At the end of my consultation, you will receive floor plans showing furniture placement, sizes, proposed colors and lighting as your “masterplan” and illustrating the feng shui principles used. A complimentary book,
Feng Shui Revealed
, will be personally autographed for you.

Feng Shui and Architecture

Feng shui is balance in architecture and design made possible by the management of natural forces. “Wind” and “water” (the literal meaning of “feng shui”) are two of many forces taken into consideration by the ancient sages in their design of homes, palaces, gardens and cities.

The fundamental purpose of feng shui is to create harmony and balance of one’s life which, in turn, is reflected in their space. In essence, a place where one feels safe and protected which therefore enhances ourselves, our relationships within our family and community, and our productivity and prosperity.

Why is feng shui so popular now?

The attention in the media (newspaper articles, books, TV, the internet, etc.) and the interest in the ancient philosophy as an approach for modern times is becoming stronger every day due to the awareness of people when they understand the consequences of how their personal space (their own home) affects their neighbors and community, it’s relationship to nature, and ultimately the world.

Feng shui does not impose the concepts of architects and designers but supports and nurtures those who live or work within the spaces designed. Perception of community and associations about homes or possessions, can have a profound effect on how people relate and live with each other. Feng shui applied to the design of a home, a neighborhood cluster, or even a city can help shape this perception and these associations. The long-range impact affects productivity, economics, and the image of the location.

When providing a consultation, I work within your resources – time, money, and energy – where I can give you a masterplan as well as alternative feng shui cures for you to implement immediately.

A typical consultation will consist of:

  • A brief introduction
  • Reviewing your intentions for the session
  • Walking through your space to assess the ch’i energy
  • Having discussions with you while making feng shui recommendations on your floor plans with colored sketches
  • Teaching the Five Elements (Transformations of Energies)
  • Evaluating the birthdates of each member of your family or office colleagues according to the Nine Star Ki method
  • Teaching you the fundamental principles of feng shui as applied to your situation.

Consultation Details

It would be necessary to have the birthdates of the members of your family and/or your office colleagues & floor plans of your space when I arrive to your place or prior to the consultation. I will bring a my color pens and a measuring tape to make sure that my feng shui suggestions can be easily implemented .

At the end of your consultation, you will have the following items:

  • Feng Shui recommendations written on your floor plan with colored sketches
  • A summary of recommendations with priorities for implementing the suggested feng shui “cures,”
  • A signed copy of my book, Feng Shui Revealed

Red Envelope Tradition

According to Feng Shui tradition, payment (check or cash) is to be enclosed in nine Red Envelopes which you provide.

The reason is that Feng Shui is considered to be very sacred and powerful….the number nine and the Red color are symbolically powerful elements of high energy and “good luck”.

By placing the payment into the Red Envelopes, we are acknowledging the power & integrity of the feng shui consultation.
