COURSE DESCRIPTIONS, TOPICS, OUTLINES AND OBJECTIVES

Module 1: Getting started with Feng Shui

feng shui classFeng Shui is often called "The Key to Good Fortune". The Feng Shui journey is a deep, poetical view of life's underlying influences. It is a language of Universal cosmology and change. We will explore what this means on all; levels, physical, emotional, spiritual and universal. You will learn the how and why of "Energy Design" techniques that have been associated with Feng Shui masters for thousands of years. You will learn how to combine the intuitive thinking processes of Feng Shui and analytical techniques, a blend of east and west, of right and left hemispheres of awareness.

This module will present the definitions and principles of Feng Shui. You will learn why Feng Shui works and how it can enhance your life so you can achieve results in your living and business environments. Most modern designs lack the concept of Energy flow- and energy awareness. You have most likely heard of the concept "sick building syndrome". Some houses just don't feel right. Some businesses do badly for no apparent reason. Find out what the major contributing factors to these situations are.

In the East, no major decision for business design or location is made until it is thoroughly investigated by a Feng Shui expert. William S. Doyle, Vice President of a New York advertising agency describes why he uses Feng Shui in his 16,000 square feet of offices. "People need to understand its 3,000 years of common sense, codified and turned into principles which can be repeated with foreseeable results. This is an art form; there is a reason why it is done. It is practical and pragmatic."

Here is an excerpt from one of our recent graduates:

"In recent years, people have become more aware of their impact - largely negative - on their environment. As we strive to come to terms with and slowly begin to repair the damage that has been done to the earth, the atmosphere and beyond, there has been an increasing awareness of humanity's relationship with the earth and the universe. The popularity of Feng Shui is a natural consequence of this awareness since it is precisely this relationship, between heaven, earth and humanity, which must be balanced to achieve good fortune and good health for all. Not coincidentally, humanity must begin to honor this relationship once again in order to ensure its prosperity in the future." -Erica Goldstein, architect OAQ Graduated from McGill University, Montreal, Quebec, 1996 Registered by the Order of Architects of Quebec, 2007 Currently studying with Roger Green.

Module 1 consists of an exploration of the origins and history of Feng Shui, the different schools of Feng Shui, the development of Feng Shui's most powerful tools and an explanation of the underlying principles that allow Feng Shui to work.

Module 2: Ba Gua to Flying Star techniques with Roger Green

group of people with compassThe universe and all it contains is essentially energy in a continual state of transformation. The ancient Taoist sages of the East observed powerful insights into the inner working of the universe, and devised methods to trace the everlasting process of change- the rhythm of the order of the universe.

In Module 2 we continue our journey with an introduction to Compass School Feng Shui (the second of the original 2 schools of Feng Shui). Using the Western Lopan developed by Roger Green, as a reference tool, you will be led through an exploration of all that is possible when the 8 compass directions are combined with the dynamics of yin/yang and the 5 elements theory. With the introduction of the eight directions we follow the evolution of the "Later Heaven Trigrams" to construct the "Bagua", an octagonal mandala with infinite uses in Feng Shui. We examine the Lo Shu, or the magic square of Feng Shui, as it leads to the Ming Gua and Ba Zhai methods, the core of "Eight Houses" Feng Shui.

Extensive workbooks by Roger Green are issued to students of this program. These workbooks cannot be acquired anywhere else. The result is an integrative, comprehensive, stimulating and innovative training program, considered by many to be the finest in the world. The SFSFS curriculum has been consistently updated and improved over the years to reflect the most relevant subject matter and has set many trends in Feng Shui education. This program reaches through the centuries to successfully integrate the thousands of years old origins of this art and science with the requirements and actuality of contemporary life.

The training program offers many advanced techniques, and emphasizes the classical schools of Feng Shui.

THE FLYING STAR TECHNIQUES:

Here we will enter into the exploration of Flying Star Feng Shui and a more in-depth, advanced study of the Lo pan Compass.

The Universe is ever changing and natural influences evolve with the passage of time. Flying Star Feng Shui incorporates the elements of time and space. Discover how to trace the pattern of change through the 20 year periods called "ages". Learn how to access the fortune of a dwelling. With practice, one can become skilled at how to unblock energies that affect the aspects of prosperity and health in a dwelling.

The Lopan Compass is the essential tool in Classical Feng Shui. Its many rings reveal vital information in assessing a dwelling or building site and contain a large body of knowledge that encompasses classical Chinese philosophy, numerology and cosmology. The Chinese Lopan can take a very long time to master since it requires prior learning of the Chinese characters. The Western Lopan developed by Roger Green simplifies the process and makes it easier for the western student to learn and use.

The Lopan reveals the different energies affect the site. With this knowledge, you can do an in depth analysis of a home or business. An understanding of the Lopan is considered one of the highest arts in the world of Feng Shui.

  • Recognize the cycles of time and different ages.

In creating these systems of Feng Shui Astrology, ancient people took into consideration the underlying influences of universal cosmology and the cycles of change.

Their reporting has been consistent: Roger Green has offered them the clearest, most understandable discourse on the subject, and his teaching methods simplify the processes so that they are truly usable on every project. Many students have reported that they experienced a huge increase in their Feng Shui abilities after experiencing this course.

This sophisticated method is as useful for deriving important and very personal Feng Shui information about Feng Shui clients such as aspects of their character. Armed with superior knowledge of their clients and their needs, the practitioner can optimize the relevance and results of the consultation.

Four pillars is an ancient system of constructing a Horoscope based on the "Heavenly Stems" and "Earthly Branches" at the hour, day, month and year of birth. Interpretation is the result of examining the manner in which the elemental and animal archetypes contained in the charts interact with aspects within the chart as well as conditions in the world.

Four Pillars' greatest strength for Feng Shui is its ability to accurately determine the Element make-up of the subject. Once the self-element is determined beneficial elements can be recognized and the most appropriate Feng Shui adjustments and design choices can be made.

Let Roger take you on a fascinating 4 Pillar journey in time and space, yin-yang, spirals and elements to the very core of the formation of your constitution.

Roger Green is a pioneer of Four Pillars in Western culture, having introduced these methods for the first time to thousands of students in Europe, UK, USA and Australia. He created the first effective protocols for 100% correct chart calculations, stressing the importance of correct local solar time and developing the appropriate adaptation for the calculation of Southern Hemisphere charts. This work has never been accomplished before in history.

Included with this course is an extensive step-by-step manual for calculating and interpreting Four Pillars as well as Roger's simplified technique for creating Four Pillars and Luck Pillars charts.

“I have been learning Flying Stars for 3 years and have studied with several of the other teachers including a correspondence course. Only after taking this workshop with Roger Green have I been truly able to put it all together.”

“This was the most comprehensive training a Feng Shui practitioner could get. Being part of the NY School of Feng Shui is an ongoing process of learning and achievement.

TESTIMONIALS

“Our consultation was awesome. The students who came to give us the consultation were so knowledgeable. They listened well and asked us great questions. The questions helped us to focus on what we wanted to get out of our consultation. After speaking to them we realized that keeping our work and personal life separate was our main goal since we both work from home.”

“They went above and beyond that. We learned about what colors where best for our personalities, where the best place to put things in the house are and how to enhance the aesthetics naturally present in our Edwardian apartment. Right after they left we started moving things around and the suggestions we have already taken have really shifted things in the house. Since my workspace is not separate from the rest of the house our whole life and relationship has shifted. We are creating more balance. It was a great experience; I would recommend it to anyone.” Darshana Weilland Chris Berkner, San Francisco

“The New York School of Feng Shui is a gift to all who want to know the “real deal” about feng shui. No gimmicks here. This was a true educational experience. The importance of knowing why certain treatments and cures work is stressed. Roger Green is a master feng shui practitioner who generously shares his life experience and knowledge of this ancient Chinese art with his students with humor and with grace and ease. By the end of the course work I was confident that I had the tools and the knowledge necessary to be of service to people interested in “being feng shuied”.-Melissa Moorer Nobles

Testimonial:

"My career for many years was in the legal field. For the last six years of that time, I spent every moment I could decorating and re-decorating my apartment in San Francisco (and anyone else’s who would let me.)  

I played with color, shapes, lighting, placement of furniture, window treatments, floor coverings, mirrors, art ……it finally occurred to me that it was more than a past-time or a hobby, it was my passion and my bliss.  I took a leap of faith and I made a career change.

I wanted to know why what I did worked or didn’t work.  What were the principles I needed to know so I could do what I love with intention and not guess work.  

I didn’t know exactly what I was looking for, but it seemed to me Feng Shui might have the answers to my questions.  I was familiar with Feng Shui through the popular culture of the 90s; there is a corner for health, wealth and romance, etc.  I learned there are many different schools of Fung Shui.  I didn’t know enough about it to know which one would be the best, so I decided to follow my intuitions which lead me to Roger.

I was trained by Roger Green, New York School of Feng Shui, in the pure, classical school of Feng Shui; it is a 5,000-year-old Chinese tradition.  Roger is a native of New Zealand and is a pioneer in Southern Hemisphere Feng Shui.  He has been a Feng Shui Practitioner for more than 30 years and has travelled and taught Feng Shui all over the world.  Learning Feng Shui with Roger has proven to be one of my best life decisions.

My questions were the easy ones.  I had no idea Feng Shui had a depth and breadth that includes everything from Chinese medicine to what shape is best for your garden.  It has a symmetry and connection to all living things, and all things are living.  I can’t think of any aspect of life (or death) that Feng Shui does not include. It is an all-encompassing, life-long study."

spiral galaxyModule 6: The Tao of Geometry with Marnie Muller and Mark Hanf

Tao is most often translated as “way” or “path” and in this 4 day course our labyrinthine path leads us towards the center of Chinese Geometry.

Deep within the ancient art and science of Geometry lies a beautiful and mysterious system of forms that has fascinated philosophers and sages from all spiritual traditions since antiquity.   In this particular Foundation Course we invite participants to awaken their own deeper levels of perception and to access the golden key of Sacred Geometry to unlock secrets encoded in the sacred symbols of China.  

Yin Yang symbol in United KingdomThis multifaceted course integrates hands-on geometric drawing with dynamic multimedia presentations and invites students to explore the harmonic balance of Heaven and Earth, Form and Emptiness, Science and Spirituality, Mastery and Mystery, Yin and Yang.

The Great Square has no corners. -Lao Tzu

Through this dynamic foundation course you will:
  • Develop a deeper understanding of the connection between Feng Shui principles and Sacred Geometry
  • Gain proficiency in the classical skills of architectural compass drawing through meditative geometric practices and individual instruction
  • Draw a series of traditional Chinese geometric patterns and designs to include in your own portfolio
  • Explore how these archetypal geometric patterns and designs can be effectively applied to one’s personal and professional life.

Just remain at the center of the circle And let all things take their course. -Lao Tzu

In this course, the content focus is:

  • Decoding the hidden fractal and holographic geometries embedded in the Yin Yang and how they relate to modern science and principles of design
  • Exploring the secret of how the Yin Yang is a multidimensional template (or map) for understanding geomagnetism and other core elements of Feng Shui
  • Discovering how the flow of chi integrally relates to the Yin Yang form through the principles of Sacred Geometry
  • Investigating how the Yin Yang is intimately related to the resonant proportions and symmetries of human anatomy
  • Exploring the mysteries of Squaring the Circle and the harmonics of balancing Heaven and Earth
  • Learning advanced construction techniques of the Ba Gua and other classic geometric symbols of China with architectural compass and straight edge
  • Developing a sensory, kinesthetic 3-D geometric experience of these primordial patterns and flow-forms
  • Zooming in on the toroidal and vortex geometries of ancient Chinese imagery and exploring how they reveal the living geometries of Nature

compassDay I Circle and Square

Our path begins with a multi-media glimpse of the rich culture of ancient China and its cosmology.  With Heaven Above, Earth Below, the deep geometries of Nature and the Universe are discovered embedded in art, architecture, astronomy, sacred measure, navigation, alchemy, and symbolism.

Throughout this course we explore the traditions of Taoism. Buddhism, and Confucianism and how the relationship of Human to Cosmos was an elemental expression of the Chinese culture.The primary tools of architectural compass and straight edge are at the heart of geometry. Throughout history, geometers have been initiated into the meditative art of geometric drawing as a spiritual practice and a practical skill. In this session we participate in this ancient tradition through drawing the archetypal forms of Circle and Square.  We develop our confidence and skill level by progressing to more complex forms such as The Hexagonal Matrix, the Yin Yang and the Lo Shu Magic Square.

Day II The Octagon and Other Key Geometric Forms

coinThe Tao gives birth to One. One gives birth to Two. Two gives birth to Three. Three gives birth to the Ten Thousand Things. -Lao Tzu

This session begins with a comprehensive multimedia presentation on Sacred Number, the Lo Pan Compass, the Ba Gua, the I Ching, the Five Elements and other key geometric patterns in Chinese cosmology.  We will explore the pentagon and the Five Elements as well as octagonal geometries and how they all arise from the Yin Yang. Using advanced compass skills we will construct the Ba Gua and other complex forms and explore how they are interrelated. We will examine the geometric aspects of the Lo Pan Compass as well as the Sacred Geometry of the seasons and cycles of time in Chinese Astronomy.

Day III Yin Yang

Being and Non-Being create each other… -Lao Tzu

The Tai Chi, known in the west as the Yin Yang, is a familiar symbol that embodies the philosophy of non-dualism or complementarity.  Its key principles of polarity and harmony as well as cyclic and wave motion are reflected throughout the cosmos. We will explore this archetypal geometric form found throughout Chinese culture through a unique multi-media presentation and discussion.

yin yangBy meditatively drawing variations of the Yin Yang with the geometer’s tools we will explore the principles and pathways of Fractal, Toroidal, and Vortex Geometries and how they map the phenomena of Electromagnetism, Chi, Human Anatomy, and Primordial Chi Kung Geometric Movements.

"Geometry has two great treasures: one is the theorem of Pythagoras, the other the division of a line into mean and extreme ratios, that is the Golden Mean. The first way may be compared to a measure of gold, the second to a precious jewel." --Johannes Kepler (1571-1630)

Day IV Squaring the Circle and Cubing the Sphere

One of the oldest puzzles in human history is how to construct a square and circle that have equal perimeter or area. This problem has fascinated mathematicians all over the world for centuries leading to the mystery of pi and representing something that appears logically impossible. Like a Zen koan, this level of paradox can invite the mind to transcend the rigidity of logic and arrive at a deeper level of meaning. With Heaven as Circle and Earth as Square, this ancient riddle expresses an underlying aspect of the whole of Chinese cosmology that points towards the relationship of Emptiness and Form; Spirit and Matter. Our multimedia presentation explores how this paradox is woven throughout Chinese art and architecture.

armillaryIn truest Taoist fashion, our final day brings us full circle back to where we began…in Mystery. How can our sacred geometer’s tools resolve this ancient riddle? 

Using a variety of Advanced Geometric construction techniques, we will demonstrate that:

The Tao is filled with infinite possibilities. -Lao Tzu

Througout these 4 days we will also be exploring:

  • Art, Color, & Design
  • The relationship between Geometric Design & Architecture
  • The Golden Proportion in Nature, Art and Architecture
We will take a pictorial tour of key geometric shapes and symmetries that form the blueprint of our world from the macrocosmos to the microcosmos.
  • A look at images of the human body and how the golden proportion is an elemental aspect of our human make-up.
  • How the laws and principles of geometry surround us in our everyday lives
  • Discover geometric shapes and symmetries that occur in Nature, by observing leaves, blooms, and other natural formations
  • Get to know the Geometer‚s Tools- exploring with Compass and Straight Edge
  • Reflection, Discussion and Time to digest your feelings and thoughts.

spoonConnecting with Geometry as a deep spiritual pathway to understanding who you are - what is the purpose of “Being Here Now” and the insights into Universal PhilosophyThe Knowledge of which Geometry aims Is knowledge of the Eternal. Plato, Republic VII, 52

Geometry is One and Eternal, Shining in the Mind of God. That share in it accorded to men Is one of the reasons that Man Is the Image of God. --Johannes Kepler

There was something formless and perfect Before the Universe was born. It is serene.  Empty. Solitary.  Eternally present. It is the mother of the Universe. For lack of a better name, I call it the Tao. -Lao Tzu

 

 


Testimonials from one of the longest established Feng Shui curriculum...

This was the most comprehensive training a Feng Shui practitioner could get. Being part of the NY School of Feng Shui is an ongoing process of learning and achievement. We are prepared to offer clients a full spectrum of options when asked to enter their living or working space. I am grateful for the experience and encourage you to choose the same path. Many blessings, Barbara, NY Student 2003

 Dear Roger, My language is not perfect, I feel more than I can express…
Roger’s “Learn Tao” course really made a connection for me, Feng Shui Practitioner, with Chinese Traditional Medicine and created a holistic view on a person within an environment. It helped me to address my own health issues and see my friends and clients health problems in a new way. I felt like I found the answers that I’ve been searching for years. I’ve done a lot of research and study before I’ve met Roger Green and the depth of his knowledge really impressed me. I thought I will take a course or two from him, but I could not stop, I ended up taking all of them. He is full of knowledge and wisdom, he is humble and humorous, perhaps, like a Real Taoist Master and Teacher should be. Natalia Kaylin (UKRAINE)

I just read through your information on Feng Shui in the southern hemisphere and wanted to thank you for the quality of your writing. I am moving house in Melbourne and I've been using the approach you describe for 2 years following a period of trying to live with the conventional method for the northern hemisphere. I found the difference to be enormous, but don't seem to rub shoulders with many people of like mind. Your explanation makes me feel comfortable with what I have done.
Thanks for taking the time to read this message, and for your brilliant article on the website. With Best Wishes, Dean Sky-Lucas (Melbourne Australia)

You would be so proud of me as I am being flown to Kentucky - all expenses paid for my first full paying consultation. This woman's house burned down 9 months ago leaving only the foundation. She has already rebuilt the house and is soon to move back in when she found me. I have also been practicing on other people and just did one of my acupuncturists home and spent 5 hours with her. It is amazing when you do a combination of the 4 Pillars with the home. This is truly healing on a deep level. Thank you so much for this ancient wisdom and being in my life. – Melanie, NY Student

 "I'm studying Feng Shui with Roger Green from Australia. He's the best teacher of any subject that I've ever encountered! The amount of information that he brought into that short introduction to this work was incredible. But more importantly, he instills this incredible sense of joy, wholeness, hope and fun into life! He has a great Australian accent, has a wonderful sense of humor, and teaches ancient wisdom that we all recognize, but have forgotten.” -Nancy, Yoga School Manager

The New York School of Feng Shui is a gift to all who want to know the "real deal" about feng shui. No gimmicks here. This was a true educational experience. The importance of knowing why certain treatments and cures work is stressed. Roger Green is a master feng shui practitioner who generously shares his life experience and knowledge of this ancient Chinese art with his students with humor and with grace and ease. By the end of the course work I was confident that I had the tools and the knowledge necessary to be of service to people interested in "being feng shuied". — Melissa Moorer Nobles

What an awaking seminar! It enlightens me deeply, giving me far more that I could imagine. The first module showed me that from the microcosm of human life, we learn the vast & profound realities of the macrocosm. Roger Green couldn’t have been a better guide for exploring this integral & harmonious way through the natural principles of Feng Shui. Isn't what we all are seeking in our turbulent society?
-Anyo

Thank you for the privilege of working with you and your class from the Golden Gate School of Feng Shui. Our building in Berkeley presents so many challenges. It is a big complex mess. We were deeply impressed by the competence, creativity and undaunted wisdom which was expressed in each dimension of the work throughout the day. Your advice was sensible, grounded in practical business understanding, and, I believe once implemented, will be very beneficial. Your work as a teacher and advisor is simply outstanding. We will keep you abreast of changes at the building throughout the coming year. Many Thanks and Best Wishes, Bennett Johnston

Just quick notes to say a huge THANK YOU for the privilege of studying with you over this last year! It’s been fun, demanding, challenging and rewarding. I also intend doing some of the further modules with you in 2005. I'm inspired and think that I've finally found that passionate path forwards. And the requests are already rolling in! So, thanks again and travel well. Fondest regards, Di. - Sydney

Have just finished the last stage of my first FS consult. The client had been very low for a long time. There was such synchronicity in the whole session and we were so in tune, that he emerged totally enthused. Has gone off to organize getting his whole premises redecorated and reorganized during the Xmas break. It was such an inspiring experience.   Thanks for passing on such wonderful knowledge, and for getting us to a stage that we are able to get out there and apply it. Sydney Student

 Thank you for everything - studying feng shui this past year has been the most rewarding trip - centering chi has brought all the most wonderful events to my door (Ming tang)
Corey- Philly USA

I was able to attend Roger Green's Module 1 in San Francisco (presented by The Golden Gate School of Feng Shui, a school that was created by Roger Green). During 2002, in New York City, I actually completed Modules 2, 3, and 4. I originally started with Module 2 having only read about Feng Shui. Because of Roger's concise and structured way of teaching, I never felt as though I was handicapped by not attending Module 1. In retrospect, I found it very stimulating and exciting to go back to "square one" with the knowledge I had acquired. I am looking forward to completing the course...Roger has so much information to give his students. Angela, New York, NY

“Roger Green is a brilliant, inspiring teacher who has unique ability to deliver a profound Eastern philosophy to a western audience in a clear and understandable, useable format. I have experienced many teachers in this area; Roger is one of the best.”
~TeRumi Leinow, Woodacre, CA Food Energetics: June 2003

“After just half a day of studying with Roger Green I knew without a doubt that I had chosen the right teacher, the right school, and the right community of people to spend the year with on my way to becoming a feng shui practitioner. Roger’s knowledgeable, articulate and well-grounded teaching style (along with years of teaching experience), the integrity of the program put together by the Golden Gate School of Feng Shui, and the interest, commitment, and background of the other students makes me feel completely confident that I am going to benefit immensely from this experience both personally and professionally. I am very grateful for having this opportunity so close to home.”
--Catherine, Marin, CA
