The Three Lucks: Heaven, Human, Earth (The Taoist View on Feng Shui and Life) – Laurent Langlais (UK)
Feng shui is part of a greater system of  Taoism. In Taoism, feng shui is defined as Earth Luck, one of the classical Three Lucks. The other two, Heaven Luck and Human Luck, are our destiny blueprint and our free will. In this presentation, Laurent Langlais will show you how they constantly interact together to define your life. We will see how you can turn your luck around and how your own Qi (life force) informs us about your optimal timing and best feng shui solutions. Laurent Langlais

Connecting Feng Shui with Nature: Greening the City – Gary Grant (UK)
Essentially feng shui is a pro-environmental practice, so how can it help to improve built-up congested neighbourhoods?  Gary Grant will present an ecological approach to urban greening, where nature is brought into our towns and cities in order to increase wellbeing, reduce air and noise pollution, lower temperatures in heat waves and reduce flood risk. He will describe a number of initiatives, including green roofs, living walls and rain gardens in London and inner city locations elsewhere in the world. These systems can be functionally incorporated into urban feng shui projects.

Pactical Feng Shui Tips from Japanese, Korean and Chinese Gardens that Westerners can Apply in their own Gardens, Patios and Balconies – Victor H. Garza (China)
Japanese, Korean and Chinese people have designed gardens for over 1000 years. Whether these gardens are found in a palace, a temple or simply along the streets of an ancient sector of a town or city, these gardens invite us to connect with nature and enjoy the beauty of its arrangement by walking along its paths, bridges, pavilions or pagodas appreciating its flowers, plants, trees and water. A few of the key elements from those gardens could be incorporated in your own garden, patio or terrace making your home or office a small natural sanctuary.

Using Ming Gua Directional Preferences in Architectural DesignKristiina Mäntynen (Finland)
Houses are usually planned to ”fit for all”. However, if a house is built for a particular family, the Ming Gua directional preferences of the occupants can be used to guide the design process. In her presentation Kristiina will show how she has done that in the houses she has planned.  The same principles can also be easily applied when we look for the ideal placement and directions in existing living spaces.

Kristiina has studied feng shui since 1990 and among her many teachers are Joseph Yu, feng shui architect Howard Choy,  Jes T. Y. Lim and Derek Walters.

Colour Psychology: The Energy of Colour – Angela Wright (UK)
Colour psychology is the effects of the electro-magnetic radiation of light on human mood and behaviour – a universal, psychophysical reaction, which is not as heavily influenced by culture, age and gender as is generally thought. There is a great difference between colour psychology and colour symbolism. Historically, what is often described as colour psychology is actually colour symbolism – the conscious associations that we are conditioned to make. Cultural responses to colour derive from a variety of causes: for example, green is the sacred colour throughout Islam, being the colour of the Prophet’s robe; in Ireland it is considered lucky, perhaps because when the world around us contains plenty of green this indicates the presence of water and therefore little danger of famine; in England it is considered unlucky, possibly because of its association with decay and disease. During the talk you’ll learn about colour and the energies behind it and its profound effect on human behaviour and why colour is the most influential element in the design mix and therefore in feng shui.

angela_wrightAngela Wright (FRSA) studied psychoanalytical psychotherapy at Queen Mary’s Hospital, Roehampton, England, before studying the dynamics of colour in Carmel, California, USA, and identified links between patterns of colour and patterns of human behaviour. She formulated a clear hypothesis, which became the basis of the Colour Affects System, an academically sound and demonstrably effective system that crossed cultural boundaries and, for the first time, enabled colour psychology to be applied objectively, rationally and with remarkable accuracy. She’s the author of ‘The Beginner’s Guide to Colour Psychology‘. More info: http://www.colour-affects.co.uk

Sunday 10 May 2015 | 10.00am – 5.00pm  | Two half-day workshops

Feng Shui Cycles for Business, Relationships and Projects Simon Brown (UK)
Timing is everything. Whether it is planting seeds, starting a business or beginning a relationship. More than that, the timing of each new phase within a cycle can make all the difference to success or failure. Here you will learn how to create a clock, calendar and map that describes natural cycles in a way we can use them to decide when to take important actions and where we are in an existing cycle. Feng shui is largely converting time into space, so that when we know the best time to do something we also know which part of our homes to improve to be more successful. Ultimately we are using feng shui to achieve more with less effort by using powerful cycles in nature.
