All civilisations have left an imprint on the world around them which invariably expresses particular belief systems and cultural norms. These can be identified in the fabric of every city, every town and indeed any landscape that is a product of human contrivance. This talk spotlights feng shui as a belief system with a pervasive influence on many cities and urban spaces, drawing on the value of feng shui as a paradigm that promotes harmony between man and nature.

Scandinavia consists of Sweden and Norway (sometimes also Finland and Denmark) and has a unique style of feng shui. One size doesn’t fit all when it comes to applying feng shui. To make feng shui work in Scandinavia we need to take the climate into consideration. Seven months of the year are cold and dark. In this presentation, Susanna will show how the Scandinavian people, have interpreted feng shui for hundreds of years and also show how feng shui is used for contemporary living in Scandinavia.

The Four Pillars of Destiny – Raymond Lo (Hong Kong)
The Four Pillars of Destiny is a Chinese system using the five elements present at the moment of birth. As such, when an event happens we can examine the Four Pillars at that particular point in time. The presence of elements and their interactions reveal to us a picture that gives alternative clues about what might occurred then. This talk will provide many examples of how the five elements model can shed light on particular events and how the Four Pillars can offer another explanation for a person’s situation.
Building Biology for Healthy Homes – Beverley Wood (UK)

The Five Aesthetic Principles of Feng Shui – Howard Choy (Germany)
Feng shui belongs to the Art of Observation (Xiang Shu) in the Taoist Five Arts, consequently the aesthetics of a place or a built-form become part of feng shui considerations. The aesthetic preferences in feng shui is the main focus of this presentation; you will find out what the SUISY principles are and how they can be applied in feng shui practice. By the end of the talk it is hoped that you will understand the aesthetic criterion to use when someone asks ‘What do you think of the feng shui of this building’?
Home: How Habitat Made Us Human – John S Allen (USA via Skype link)
Whether we live in an igloo or in Buckingham Palace, the fact that Homo sapiens create homes is one of the greatest puzzles of our evolution. John S. Allen will present evidence from evolutionary anthropology, neuroscience, the study of emotion, and modern sociology to argue that the home is one of the most important cognitive, technological, and cultural products of our species’ evolution. This presentation will sheds new light on the deep pleasures we receive from our homes, rooting them in both our evolution and our identity as humans. Home is not simply where the heart is, but the mind too.
John S Allen, PhD, is a neuroanthropologist working at the Dornsife Cognitive Neuroscience Imaging Center and Brain and Creativity Institute, University of Southern California. Originally trained in biological anthropology, he received his undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of California at Berkeley. John’s latest book Home: How Habitat Made Us Human is available on Amazon/Kindle
Feng Shui Logos – How to Design Logos and Business Cards with Feng Shui Principles – Jan Cisek (UK)
Having a strong identity is very important in any line of work. When your brand is strong and distinctive it is seen as a mark of quality and trust. Effective branding is the key factor in attracting long term, loyal clients. Although originally feng shui was applied to physical environments, now it is being applied to the virtual environments as brands and websites. You may have a harmonious feng shui at your office but is your feng shui aligned with your brand? Does your logo comply with good feng shui criteria? During this practical talk you will learn how to use feng shui principles in designing logos and business cards (and even your signature which is your personal logo). Please bring your business cards for assessment.
