We will be on hand to mentor you and help you whenever you have questions or need more input.

This introduction course is suitable for everyone wishing to gain a solid foundation insight into Feng Shui, whether you are an enthusiast for self interest, seeking personal development or considering to become a practitioner.

Former Students’ Feedback

“ Howard and Sylvia provide all the tools and resources you need to do well. I can’t complement them enough for putting together such comprehensive course notes. Both are global professionals with a vast experience in the field of classical Feng Shui. I feel extremely privileged to have joined the ECOFS training course.“ Amber van den Berg

“Howard’s knowledge is unparalleled. He is perhaps the only teacher of Feng Shui who is equally at home in practical application and academic research. He is also one of the few who understands the Chinese classics and is able to translate and explain them. His uncanny insights paired with his passion to answer any question or solve any problem and his sense of humour , make him the most influential master of his generation.” Tyler J Rowe
