Introduction to Feng Shui Principles- Sydney

Are you having issues with money, health or relationships? Are you struggling to sell your home? Or are you in the market to buy a new home? Understanding Feng Shui principles may help you in these areas.

Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese art which seeks to create harmony with your own personal energy and the energies in Heaven and Earth. By achieving balance and harmony, you rid yourself of negativity and can improve your health, wealth and personal relationships.

This course is an introduction to Feng Shui Principles and different methods of application, for example in the purchase or sale of a residential property. We will use techniques such as Early Heaven Bagua, Later Heaven Bagua and Yin Yang. You will learn how to do basic chart plotting and basic reading of a Flying Star chart for your home.

By the end of this course, you will be able to use Feng Shui to assess your own bedroom, home, or a new property that you wish to purchase. You will understand how Feng Shui is affecting this home, including the positioning of furniture or mirrors, and how to improve the Feng Shui in the home or specific rooms.

This course is led by Lizette Akouri, an Accredited Feng Shui Master, with the International Feng Shui Association.
