The Feng Shui Cycle of Life by Simon Brown
Human beings are cyclical creatures. Our breathing, circulation, hormones, menstruation, appetite, sleep and habits all form cycles that influence our health, emotions, energy and ultimately what we do with our lives.

Our homes also experience cycles, whether through night and day, the seasons, the movement and activity within the home, along with the various energetic cycles created by the people within the home and nature outside. We might experience this as changes in temperature, light and the atmosphere of our home.

In this talk we will explore how feng shui can be a dynamic understanding of our relationships with our homes and how the various cycles in nature can be reflected in our homes.

As a result of this understanding we can create homes that help us experience the kind of emotions, feelings, energy and thoughts that are most likely to help us succeed in life.

We will work through knowing what we need to succeed, what kind of energetic shift will bring about success and how to change our homes to support this change.

 


Jan Cisek JAN CISEK: Jan has twenty-five years experience in feng shui and is a leading voice in innovative feng shui and has studied Environmental Psychology and Cognitive Ergonomics. With background in design, he brings together practical applications of feng shui and scientific understanding of how feng shui works.

Feng shui – Psychology of Place by Jan Cisek
Feng shui is the original Psychology of Place dating back 4000 years, and there are countless examples of its efficacy. However it is only within the last 50 years, with the development of Environmental Psychology and Cognitive Ergonomics that the effects of feng shui could be studied by western science. The time is now ripe for Environmental Psychology to learn from feng shui and vice versa.

This presentation will demonstrate the clear overlap between Environment Psychology and feng shui, and show the scientific applications of feng shui in your life. You will also learn how feng shui works as a basic neuro-feedback mechanism and how your home acts as a metaphor for your life and a mirror for your self. More importantly, you will be given the key to deciphering its message ­ and learning how to use the power of feng shui to positively influence your life.



Ricahrd Ashworth RICHARD ASHWORTH: Richard is probably best known for introducing Classical feng shui to a wide audience on BBC’s Housebusters, his book The Feng Shui Diaries and for editing the Journal of the Feng Shui Society. Richard studied with Master Chan Kun Wah before completing the only feng shui course yet certificated by a Chinese University. “No traditional feng shui master would have surveyed a building without knowing the ba zi’s or Four Pillars of the occupants beforehand. That’s one reason they were so effective.”

The Role of the Ba Zi in feng shui work by Richard Ashworth
Since 2697BC the Chinese have measured time with the cycle of the 60 Animals. 2009 for instance is an Earth Rat as was 1949. Such “twinned” years share a resonance. For instance in both the Metal Snake years 1941 and 2001, America having recently elected a President on a non-intervention ticket, was plunged by a guerrilla attack into a long and bloody war.

The gan zi Cycle applies equally to days, months and hours and describes something objectively real. We all probably know we are a Fire Tiger or whatever. What we may not know is the ba zi from which the Animal is drawn.

The Chinese observed this Productive Cycle in nature. The Rat is followed by the Ox and the Tiger because this is precisely how the energy of a day proceeds: first the wood of the Tiger and Rabbit, the element of fresh light and of stirring. After this there is a rest in the earth of the Dragon hour. Then follows the outgoing and innovative fire energy of the Snake and Horse then the earth of the Sheep. The metal of the Monkey follows as the day’s gains are counted and stored and then the chattering and drinking of the Rooster followed by further rest under the guardianship of the Dog and the cold dark water of the Pig and Rat.

From this observable cycle we can draw many conclusions. The ba zis of the famous show this graphically.

Now if we can know total strangers, we can speculate about people we are going to meet: what sort of house they live in and indeed ought to live in, what elements need boosting, their best orientations, where to sleep and work and what challenges and opportunities may await them. The ba zi offers all of this before we meet them.



Sylvia Bennett SYLVIA BENNETT: Sylvia’s training in classical feng shui began during the ‘eighties in Hong Kong, her work continues to embrace the same traditional foundations. Her flair for transposing these traditional principles into our modern living style has taken her to work alongside architects, helping to make places feel good for people who occupy them. Through her role on the Plymouth Architectural Trust, she is currently involved in the major regeneration project for Plymouth’s city centre. Sylvia is also an environmental design consultant and an affiliate of both the Royal Institute of British Architects and the Landscape Institute.

Urban Alchemy, Vertical gardens and O2 success by Sylvia Bennett
There is a revolution growing in cities around the world. Vertical gardens – lush green living walls – are appearing, embracing the sides of tall buildings and structured faces, transforming drab urban environments into exciting flourishing, nourishing landscapes. Vertical gardens are not just aesthetically appealing, beautiful living art forms. Their role in urban design has a far deeper significance; their emerging desirability in the 21st century embraces the traditional principles of feng shui that go back thousands of years.

Possibly the most impressive installation in the world has taken place in London at the Greenwich Peninsula site of the O2 venue, which now inhabits the old Millenium Dome. After it had been virtually abandoned for 5 years, the Dome acquired new owners who embarked on a two year development programme before they launched the new venture in June 2007. Fortunately for the O2, the architect involved in regenerating Peninsula Square beyond its entrance, took a sensitive approach to the project.

As this case study will demonstrate, the architect’s well-located inclusion of a spectacular living wall can be considered to be a contributory factor, at least in part, for the successful business transformation of the 02 into a prominent international entertainment venue.
