Feng Shui
Our line up of Feng Shui practitioners represents the most experienced consultants from around the world. Hailed as the 21st Century design language, that integrates the invisible with the visible, the yin with the yang, Feng Shui has captured our western thinking and has evolved our consciousness into being able to think in terms of our universe, environment and self as one complete whole. It is a time tested wisdom of designing the most harmonious place to live and work. It leads to growth in efficiency, harmony, wealth and prosperity.

Join American authors and practitioners Terah Kathryn Collins, RD Chin, Robert Sachs, Carol Cannon, Carol Hyder, Kelly Jones, David Twicken, Jonathan Ng, James Jay, Sean Xienja and Meihwa Lin- representing many diverse traditions of Feng Shui.
