Q: Please describe your very first coming into awareness about Feng Shui.
A: It was in the 1990’s that I opened probably the only book on Feng Shui on the market. It hit a chord in me, and I never looked back. I went to the beginning Feng Shui conferences hosted by James Moser, and the story keeps unfolding.
Q: What is your branch of Feng Shui? How have you made it your own?
A: I am certified in Pyramid Feng Shui and in Interior Alignment. I have also trained in Black Hat, and some Compass. I would say my heart always returns to form.
Q: How has Feng Shui changed your life?
A: I have consulted on hundreds of homes and businesses. I have witnessed miracles beyond belief. I believe in the value of this art/science with all my heart. I apply it in my life and I “think” and talk feng shui.
Q: Describe your school’s approach to teaching Feng Shui.
A: My school, Conscious Design Institute, bases its teachings in form – we build a foundation first. The “Conscious Design Format” incorporates an open universal format in understanding all techniques.
Q: What is the newest addition to your curriculum?
A: We have incorporated Feng Shui Interior Design – Energy Management / Understanding the matrix of Chi and intensified the invisible Feng Shui of Space Clearing
Q: What is the latest area of expansion for your school?
A: Our latest expansion is the opening of the Conscious Design Institute – Student Portal. It is free to join and gives a free 4 part powerpoint of Conscious Design Strategies – Feng Shui being one of the keys.
Q: Besides yourself, what does your school offer that is unique to Feng Shui training opportunities?
A: We offer internationally renowned teachers offering their wisdom. We offer a magazine that keeps us connected. We offer a resource library that will offer to students all the information from past conferences, including James Moser’s and my own International Conferences from 2004 and 2007.
Q: What is your guiding philosophy about teaching Feng Shui?
A: Feng Shui is not a noun. Feng Shui is verb. The goal of Feng Shui is bring heaven on earth to man. In other words, Feng Shui reconnects us to the earth, respect for the deep wisdom offered in nature, allows us to reset our homes and lives according to the ancient principles with the outcome of harmony and balance.
Q: What is your favorite nugget of wisdom about using Feng Shui yourself?
A: In my own home, my husband’s business would not attract stable helpers. They were transient, difficult. I realized that in our career area, entry we had placed a piece of art that Chris had bought at a dinner. It was a bear and hawk battling over a deer. Natural and violent and conflict ! I switched it out for a beautiful river image of the Delaware river at sunrise and we attracted our best employee Dan, who was my husband’s best helper for over 12 years.
