There are literally hundreds of schools, or styles, of Feng Shui; however, it is “intention”that brings them all to life. In my opinion, good results can be achieved with a variety of approaches as long as a client maintains a conscious focus on intention. My training has been integrative, incorporating all of the major schools, including compass, form school, flying stars to name a few. I have studied with well known masters from many schools and, I draw on tools from their various disciplines.
In spite of my great respect for traditional Feng Shui practice, my personal approach leans toward the flexibility and client-focused approach of contemporary Feng Shui, which allows for more collaboration and personalization.
If I were to suggest traditional Chinese “cures” or adjustments (e.g. Chines flute) to clients, they would neither resonate nor be as effective as an adjustment that better fits their own taste and decor. For example, depending upon a client’s personal likes/dislikes, she might choose an angel, Buddha, religious statue or symbol of a benevolent universe as a protector rather than traditional Chinese fu dogs.
I work with each client to describe the ideal attributes for any prescribed adjustmentand include 30 days’ coaching follow-up via email for clients to test their proposed adjustments. Since I help to translate traditional Feng Shui principles to personal client taste (incorporating their chosen art work, textures, fabrics, etc.) results are more aesthetically pleasing and outcomes tend to be more effective.
My approach is real-world and practical. I consider how clients actually work or live in their office or home and recommend adjustments that may be more spiritual or less spiritual (using mundane or transcendental adjustments/”cures”), customized to fit individual preference. There are always options to recommended actions.
