Discover Beijing: A Modern City with an Imperial Past

I am very honored to be called by Li Li from the Sino-American Friendship Association to be interviewed for a program entitled, Discover Beijing, sharing my feng shui knowledge of famous Chinese landmarks such as the Forbidden City.

It was fun to prepare for the interview; I went through my travel archives of my feng shui study trips in China as well as researching my select library of books. Even though the interview took over an hour, I am shown for a very brief time; here is the link to the program: Discover Beijing (Part 2)

Beijing – China, one of the world’s fastest rising cosmopolitan cities and a world-famous imperial capital, has a history of 3,000 years with more than 860 years as the capital of China. This show will take you to the capital of an ancient empire, steeped in thousands of years of culture. A city bursting with life and opportunity.

A people celebrating their past while embracing the future. A place to inspire and a journey to experience. This is Beijing, a modern city with an imperial past.

How do you feng shui an unfurnished 1-bedroom apartment?

After a brief introduction about feng shui, the ba-gua was placed over the floor plan to foster discussion from the client to clarify her intentions for the consultation. After evaluating the chi energies of the unfurnished apartment, it became clear where to place the furnishings and to determine the sizes of the furniture; following the calculation of her main element using the Nine Star Ki system, the colors were selected to balance the chi energy of the client and her new home!

Interested in a Feng Shui Blessing Ceremony?

It is a wonderful way to bless one’s space, whether it is your home or office. Everyone is invited. As the saying goes, “the more, the merrier”!!! Here are pictures from a feng shui ceremony known as “Tracing the Nine Stars” combined with the “Orange Peel Blessing”. The orange peels are broken into little pieces which are spread thru out the space “to feed the Hungry Ghosts” while the clients express their written intentions and wishes placed with blessed rice in Red envelopes around the home.

What do you learn in a weekend class with RD?

During the first weekend class, an overview and history of feng shui as well as learning the fundamental principles were presented. Simple qigong and meditations are included to enrich the experience of understanding “chi” or energy. More importantly, the students were able to apply feng shui onto an actual project; the teachings were invaluable in learning the theory and then applying these important principles onto a real apartment situation.

Please come to the next weekend class on November 22+23, 2014 where we will continue our feng shui studies which will include the “Chi evaluation” of people, the study of the “Five Elements”, and “Color Theories and Applications”.

    Weekend 1 of 6:

  • Introduction + History of Feng Shui
  • Slide Presentation of feng shui projects
  • Class exercise – Placing the Ba-Gua on a sample Floor Plan
  • Class exercise – Evaluating the Yin+Yang chi energies in a Space
  • Class presentation by each student for the Feng Shui of a Studio Apartment
  • Meditation combined with Qigong practice

Change your website, change your Life!

One of the feng shui “transcendental cures” to change one’s life is to create a “renewed image” of oneself for the world. So, here is an example of changing the look of my website. It was birthed during the Chinese New Year of the Green Wood Horse – February 2014 – an auspicious beginning!!!
It was a pleasure to design and work with Alex Canelos who created my current website and blog. Here is the link to see the design process for my website: A Story for a Feng Shui Website.
