Anthony Ashworth refers to himself as an Environmental Alchemist. Working closely with his clients, he brings together many aspects of the art of place making, a deep understanding of subtle energy, and healthy healing design principles to create the magic that is a balanced environment or home. He actively incorporates ancient energy systems such as Feng Shui, Vastu Shastra and principles of "Wabi Sabi" (the Zen of things) into his work. He is a qualified and experienced Feng Shui consultant/educator, architectural building and interior designer. He teaches Feng Shui, Vastu Shastra and The Zen of Place at UTS university in Sydney Australia and has traveled extensively through the East in his quest to learn firsthand about ancient cultures.
"I believe that we all need gentle yet inspiring environmentally and emotionally sustainable environments that support and nurture us in our journey. I love encouraging the transformation of existing spaces and building to there full potential, when the energies of a home are in balance with the users a natural poetry of place comes into being."
Anthony brings a wealth of information about ESD, Ecologically Sustainable Design Practices and Materials, also known as Ecologically Sensitive. Anthony also lectures on sick building syndrome and incorporates healthy building principle into his designs and consultations. Healthy building design, sometimes referred to as Modern Feng Shui, is the correct use and specification of healthy building products, furnishings and finishes, including identifying and reducing EMR (electromagnetic radiation) in the home or office.
Anthony also loves performing ceremonies for clearing energies and for people to bond with their home as a "Space clearer/healer." He fully involves and educates his clients in these beautiful blessing and energy clearing ceremonies. "I have studied and practiced many ancient Geomantic systems such as Vastu and Feng Shui and ancient Celtic systems, they are all brothers of the same clan, and although they do differ in some key aspects, they are really very similar in approach and share many key common values and ideas. I have found they can be effectively applied simultaneously to an environment."
