The Wind that stops at the Water
Some Masters define feng shui simply as “doing the right thing in the right place at the right time”, others as harmony with the environment, others again as some mystical hybrid of magic and precision. It isn’t interior design and it involves no essential spiritual practice. It isn’t even really about buildings. Rather it concerns the people who live in them, their health, wealth and wellbeing. This modular course is essentially Richard teaching the methods he has learned from a variety of Masters, developed and used with measurable success from Poland to Kuala Lumpur over a number of years. Over the four modules you will discover that there is no such thing as a routine survey and that the heart of Classical feng shui is to treat the person in the building by addressing the building. This is just a beginning.
The Wind that Stops at the Water – the Course
“Just thought I would let you know that our Nursery has just joined the 4% of OUSTANDING childcare provisions in the Country! OFSTED turned up yesterday – report not official yet — but we were given the verbal feedback by the Inspector….. You are goooooooooooooooooood!” Jocelyn
What is feng shui? We’ll look at the roots of feng shui in the idea of the Tao or “Way”, at the observations of the cycles of time that gave birth to the Zodiac Animals, at sympathetic magic, the Chinese notion of tian ti ren or “Heaven Earth and Man”, at the influence of the Yi or “Book of Changes” and the more recent European or “New Age” variants with a view to concluding what is traditional, what is useful and what is essentially irrelevant.
“Business – you said we’d make contacts this year – and boy are we! Some incredible contacts coming on line from very well placed people. What a turn around!” Janette and Nigel.
The environment; how does the building sit in the terrain? The Mountain and the Water. The Threshold, the mouth of the building. Domestic Survey Routine. Drawing up a qi map showing pockets of energy, places of help and danger. Introduction to the major Chinese Schools: sam yuen (Three Fates and hence the Trigrams of the Book of Changes) and sam he (Three Harmony and hence the Heavenly Stems and Earthly Branches.)
