April 2 @ 10:00 am - 2:30 pm
Feedback after the event
Morning, Thank you once again for the zoom session yesterday. I really enjoyed breaking into groups and the Feng Shui consultancy study. Brilliant.
Have a warm day.
I really enjoyed the event yesterday and found it extremely useful. I am a FS beginner. I started studying FS properly only 2 ago, currently attending Simon Brown course. It was great to meet everyone and gain another interesting insight into the world of FS. I am planning to attend the event in June and will definitely attend other events like the one yesterday in future. Thank you for organising this and letting people like me join and learn from already established professionals.
What an excellent day! All the talks were well prepared, interesting and useful. Lots of information, some reminding us of things we should know and had probably forgotten, especially where marketing and social media are concerned. I particularly enjoyed Carol’s business case study and hearing what she had learned later that backed up all her findings – always good to know from a consultation. Christian’s talk about his new book was riveting, posing many questions about the ‘wave of time’ – especially interesting to me.
Do listen to the talks, each one is well worth it – I can guarantee that you are bound to learn as well as remember!
Elizabeth Wells, FSSA

10:15am – 10:55am Unconscious biases – Jan Cisek
Unconscious (implicit/cognitive) biases affect our work as feng shui consultants and anyone who’s using feng shui. Evaluating, questioning and updating our beliefs, mindsets and attitudes about how feng shui works is a part of continuous professional and feng shui development. Many biases can be overcome if we are aware of them and that’s only the first step. The second step is to incorporate some basic checks for unconscious biases in order to avoid false problems and fine-tune feng shui interventions to have better results, quicker.
Jan Cisek is a feng shui consultant and trainer with 40+ years of experience in feng shui, vastu shastra and interior design. He’s also an environmental psychologist and is currently working on his PhD in feng shui which is about the integration of science and wisdom from Western and Eastern perspectives in feng shui and transpersonal psychology, consciousness and human potential.

1:45pm – 2:25pm Whispers of the Ancients – Christian Kyriacou
Christian will talk about his new book Whispers of the Ancients which is as the book subtitle suggests is an epic adventure through the wave of time. Although the origins of Feng Shui are based in China, the knowledge is founded millions of years before. In Christian’s upcoming book, he will trace the story of the 12 Light-Codes of creation, the harmonics of music, sacred geometry, geomancy; their galactic origin and how China embodied them into what we use today in Feng Shui.
Christian Kyriacou is an Architect, House Whisperer, Philosopher, Author, Storyteller, Spatial Psychotherapist, Musician, Composer, Filmmaker, Feng Shui, Vaastu and Geomancy Consultant. He has appeared on international television and radio since 1993 as an inspirational speaker on topics such as the relationship of sound and sacred space, architectural harmonics and music, geomancy and Feng Shui. His work with the spatial energy of buildings engages with how aspects of acoustics, vibration, music and harmonics relate to sacred geometry in architectural spaces. His psychotherapeutic approach involves reading and understanding the consciousness of buildings, which in turn affects the relationship of people to their homes and workplaces.
