About Feng Shui & the
International Feng Shui Guild®
About Feng Shui?
Feng Shui, literally translated, means Wind and Water. It is a philosophy, practice and art that has been used for thousands of years as a method of creating balance between people and their environments.
Every culture of the world reflects awareness of the power of placement and the value of understanding the environments we inhabit. Practitioners seek to enliven, embrace, uphold and share this ancient art. At the deepest level of understanding, Feng Shui is the interplay between the seen (our surroundings) and the unseen (energy and intention), acknowledging the interconnectedness of all things.
About the International Feng Shui Guild?
The International Feng Shui Guild is the central source for our members and the greater Feng Shui community, uniting all professional practitioners, educators, students, and friends as we embrace and support all approaches in this ancient art. Members have the ability to develop new techniques and skills by tapping into the vast resources available to them.
The Guild was founded in 1996 in response to a need to establish professionalism and ethical principles while providing the public greater confidence in building working relationship with qualified practitioners and training programs.
In upholding professional and ethical standards, all individual and school members are required to sign and adhere to the IFSG Code of Ethics as a condition of membership.
The organization is largely run by volunteers who are passionate about Feng Shui and our members. The Board of Directors consists of four Executive Directors (Chair, CEO, Secretary and Treasurer), General Board Members, and Committee Directors in the areas of Membership, Education, Marketing and Green Living and Design.
The IFSG Feng Shui Connections is a free monthly public newsletter offering expert Feng Shui tips and case studies to inspire and empower you. Additionally, we publish a popular blog and Facebook Fan Page.
Members receive our members-only newsletter and have access to professional resources specific to helping them build their Feng Shui business, expand their learning, and connect with professionals from around the world. Our Facebook Virtual Chapter is one of our members’ favorite essential resources.
The International Feng Shui Guild is proud to be a founding member of the Global Feng Shui Alliance. As an organization, the International Feng Shui Guild remains at the forefront of the expansion of Feng Shui as a profession throughout the world.
