 This course covers the fundamentals of Feng Shui. It has been accredited by The Feng Shui Society (FSS)
 as covering the required ‘Key Concepts’. It is a self-standing course and you will find it extremely beneficial
 if you intend to apply Feng Shui at home or informally for friends and family.

 You need to have completed this accredited ‘key concepts’ course should you wish to follow our Accredited
 Professional Practitioner Training Course (PTC). Please note that if you book the Practitioner Course
 Programme as your first course you receive the Home Study version of this Foundation course free of

 – virtual classroom format).

 This is an excellent course for:

   1.   Complete Beginners;

   2.   Those seeking clarification or wishing to progress their Feng Shui;

   3.   Those feeling ‘stuck’ with health, finances, relationships or any area of their lives.

   4.   Professional Practitioners – as it is the first essential step in your training

Although a 'Foundation course' we cover lots of useful information, ancient and modern, and guide
you through simple techniques which can be employed easily and cheaply at home, to facilitate
tremendous personal progress in your life.

This course is presented by various Academy teachers, and can be completed at a variety of
locations throughout the UK and occasionally overseas. For Locations, dates & Fees see our
'Booking & Fees' page. It is approved and accredited by The Feng Shui Society.
                                                   Day 1

After an introduction to Feng Shui we will look at how many different environmental factors may be
helping or obstructing you in your life. These include:

■ The hidden messages in pictures and ornaments that subtly affect our progress;

■ The residue of energies left over from the previous occupants of your home or workplace;

■ The unhelpful effects of 'geopathic stress' as well 'electro-smog' increasingly common in our
homes and workplaces;

■ Astrological phases that each of pass through and their effects on our progress and emotions;

■ The implications of physical and emotional clutter in your home or workplace and the resulting
blockages that may occur in your life.

                                                    Day 2

During the day we will briefly examine the different Feng Shui Schools in order to dispel any
confusion about conflicting approaches.

We will focus on how the nine areas of your home relate to individual aspects of your life and
then guide you through a step-by-step process of applying Feng Shui to your own home. Through a
simple but valuable 'taking stock' formula, we will help you to select which aspects of your your life
you most want to improve. We will then explain how to apply simple and inexpensive
enhancements to your home to facilitate progress in these areas.

This process is tailored to your needs rather than a 'one size fits all' approach.

        “I think the course has been excellent value for money; the teaching has been second to none,
        well presented and very clearly taught. I received far more knowledge than expected and I
        thoroughly enjoyed it.”                                                Ayesha Walker, London

This course is available in 2 formats:

                                         What is Feng Shui?
The official Feng Shui Society definition: ''Feng Shui is the practice of analysing and influencing the
interaction between people, buildings and the environment in order to enhance quality of life.
Originating in Ancient China, its basis is chi, which is vital energy present in everything”
As the definition explains, Feng Shui evolved out of the realisation that we are substantially affected by our
environments. Your home and workplace affect you in so many ways that you are probably completely
unaware of, and many of these are now scientifically validated:
The colours used; the gases emitted from man-made, materials, fibres
and printers; the psychological impact of artwork and ornaments; the
electro-magnetic fields emitted from appliances and mains supply
inside and out; harmful earth energies; the physical and
psychological impact of clutter; the views from the building; the air
quality with respect to oxygen level, ionisation, dust etc.
These are just some of the plethora of factors impacting our lives for which
there is supporting scientific evidence. There is a lot more to Feng Shui
which remains outside the current realm of scientific analysis and that
millions of people around the world have found from experience to be
entirely valid.
For many of those people Feng Shui has brought about incredible life
transformations including new or improved relationships, career
progression, better health & vitality, improved finances, selling and
renting difficult homes, to name but a few. Whether you are interested in
having a consultation, attending a workshop or training as a
practitioner, Feng Shui has a lot to offer, and we at The Academy would
be delighted to help you take your next steps.

              Day 1: Clearing Blockages to Create Harmony in your Life
 After an introduction to Feng Shui covering the ‘Key Concepts’ we will look at how the following factors
 may be obstructing you in your life.

 1)    Symbolism: You will learn how the home accurately reflects your own life and why. Also the
      important role that artwork plays in your home and in your life. Discover which images are helping
      you and which are undermining you.

 2) Predecessor Chi: How the energy of past occupants and your own negative experiences in the
    home can affect you today. Learn about this energy, which is embedded in the fabric of your home,
    & understand the influence it may have on your life. Simple techniques can be used to rid your home
    of these unhelpful influences.

 3) Geopathic Stress: Where there are distortions in the natural earth radiation around your home you
    may experience major blockages in your life, including ill health. We will explain the tell-tale signs of
    its presence and demonstrate how to detect the problem through dowsing.

 4) Your personal energy: We will briefly explain the importance of astrological factors in any analysis
    of a client’s issues and priorities. You will learn how to calculate your 9 star Ki energy based on the
    planetary set up at your time of birth, and the effect of the planetary cycle on your moods, romantic
    and career prospects.

 5) EMF: You will discover how to avoid the harmful effects on health of EMF (Electro-Magnetic
    Fields) emitted from everyday appliances, the mains power system, and the supply from outside.

 6) Clutter: We will look at the implications of physical and emotional clutter in your homes and
    offices and the resulting blockages that may occur in your life. A fundamental prerequisite to letting
    go of clutter is to understand the reasons (practical and emotional) why you have collected it. You
    will discover how this often overlooked aspect of Feng Shui can greatly obstruct your
   achievements and enjoyment of life, whether it be through poor relationships, ill-health, financial
   difficulties or career problems.

   We will help you discover what drives us to ‘hang on’ to stuff and teach you how best to ‘let go’ and
   clear these stagnant areas, a critical step before applying any traditional Feng Shui enhancements
   and cures (see Day 2). You will learn how to “go with the flow” rather than fighting against it.

Feng Shui can be described as ‘acupuncture in
space’. Just as acupuncture clears blockages in your
body for good health, this workshop teaches you how
to clear your blockages to allow the energy to flow
easily and effortlessly into all areas of your life.
It is a truly transformational workshop, giving you
all the knowledge and tools you need to clear out
the past and plan for a brighter more successful

                    Day 2: Maximise your Potential with Feng Shui
During the day we will briefly examine the different approaches to Feng Shui and then focus on how the
nine areas of your home relate to individual aspects of your life. We will clearly demonstrate how to lay
the Bagua (Feng Shui template) over your own house plan, ensuring that all participants understand
exactly which areas of their own home relate to each life area.

People rarely find the time to consider what’s really working well in their lives and what isn’t. For that
reason alone, many have found a great benefit in that the course provides the opportunity to ‘take stock’
of what we really want and get back on track. We provide a ‘life evaluation questionnaire’ which will
help you with this, and you can then decide which of the 9 areas of your life you most want to improve.
                                                  Having discovered which aspects of your
                                                  surroundings are helping or hindering your progress,
                                                  you will learn how to use simple inexpensive
                                                  enhancements and cures to profoundly improve
                                                  your health and vitality, relationships, career and

                                                  You will discover the fascinating relationships between
                                                  Yin and Yang as well as the five elements, who’s
                                                  nourishing and control cycles pervade Oriental culture.
                                                  An understanding of this simple but important concept
                                                  will enable you to properly harmonise and balance
                                                  your own environment.

                                                  We will teach you about the appropriate use of
                                                  mirrors, crystals, wind chimes, colour, fabrics,
                                                  light, water, plants, artwork, music and symbolism
                                                  to create a more harmonious and happy life for

                                                  Additionally you will discover the importance of
                                                  positioning your bed, chair or desk to gain ‘command
                                                  of the room’ (Form School Feng Shui).
                                                 You will need to bring along plans of your home or
office in order to understand clearly the Feng Shui of your own environment and therefore obtain the
most benefit from the day. You need to have completed this course should you wish to follow our
Accredited Practitioner Training.

A heart-warming letter from a student …
"This is a letter of thanks. During the Foundation Weekend, I enjoyed an extremely informative
and fascinating introduction into all aspects of Feng Shui. Since putting this into practice, I have
noticed a dramatic improvement in my life….

Having been taught to dowse I was able to avoid Geopathic Stress in the home which I now know
was causing my family a lot of harm. I cannot express how grateful I am that this is included
within your course.”…….

....Finally, my whole outlook on life has changed and my daughter keeps saying to me ‘Mummy’s
so happy’. You’ve no idea how good that feels. Thank you for your wonderful course just when I
needed it most.”

Joy Devereux. Derbyshire.
