While there are many schools of Feng Shui, the two main traditions are the Form School and the Compass School.
The Form School is the oldest school of Feng Shui and developed in Southern China in an age pre-dating today’s civilisation, by observing the energies of natural environments with the aim of finding suitable places for people to live. All Feng Shui schools refer to the Form School in different degrees.
The Compass School subsequently developed in Northern China around 3000 B.C. E. At that time man-made constructions were starting to emerge and the emphasis shifted from nature to the individual.
My approach to Feng Shui follows that of the Form School, using the guiding principle of Ch'i flow and observation of the environment. It also includes the Three Door approach presented by Professor Lin Yun, whose role was essential in disseminating Feng Shui in the West in the 1980s.
The Three Door approach incorporates traditional directional methods of Feng Shui in a system of reading energy patterns with the Bagua, a map used in Feng Shui to correlate parts of a space to particular areas of life. It is a flexible, personal and effective approach that works well in contemporary environments and actively engage the user in the Feng Shui process, leaving room for personal taste, style and creative solutions while ensuring the creation of balanced and harmonious environments.
Owing to my personal interests and for my background as a creative practitioner I have chosen a fairly empirical approach to Feng Shui and to focus my practice on Feng Shui Design and decoration. My consultations thus address relations between space and the self, and aim at combining Feng Shui skills with creative design in order to increase well-being through awareness of the space in which we live or work. Energy clearing or astrological practices are not included in my practice.
