Speakers and Topics
Using Land Form Feng Shui to Enhance External Surroundings, Mitigate Unfavorable Qi Flows, and Live in Harmony within Regional Landscapes
Are you fully aware of all the ways that hills and valleys, rivers and roads, and neighboring buildings create the favorable or unfavorable environments in which we live? Do you know how to take advantage of auspicious mountain “dragon” formations, or mitigate detrimental street layouts?
Land Form Feng Shui, the art of reading the influences of the natural landscape and city-scape on human life empowers you to do just that, and more! Richard has spent the last fifteen years making it easier to access this vast body of ancient wisdom. He will show how specific configurations of mountains, valleys and waterways generate unique regional cultures and stimulate the development of certain personality traits, and how this knowledge can guide us to use the energies of the landscape to support our life goals. The presentation will end with an application primer on how to recognize and respond to the external influences of streets, water features, and neighboring buildings on our clients’ dwellings.
Are you Axial or Blastomorphic? Do You See Your Space as Symmetrical or A-Symmetrical?
Your client may have preferences that are so deep seated that they are often only available via brainstorming the sub-conscious. The “archi-typing” technique elicits pre-verbal memory of place and can be applied to the intake reading of a client. This tool is based on the groundbreaking application of neuroscience, and creation of the ArchiMap® process developed by Beverly Payeff Masey.
Cognitive Science is an important field of study that draws on data and information-gathering techniques from biology, psychology, linguistics, anthropology, philosophy and many other fields of science. Because FSIA’s foundation is formulated around the validation of science this has become a very powerful tool. Now that behavior epigenetics has entered the playing field of our minds bodies and spirits, doing an ArchiMap assessment of your client gives the feng shui practitioner even more power to resolve issues centered around safety and acceptance or not of a space. This session will teach you how to assess a space for a client when she/he feels less safe and secure in it. New students to FSIA should be present for this workshop as it is definitely a hands-on approach that must be seen and experienced. Nancilee will also be offering a special session during the conference to archi-type five attendees of the conference. Registration for this session will be an extra charge of $100 and must be reserved prior to the conference. Registered individuals will receive instructions of what types of pictures of personal space that will be needed for the consultation with Nancilee.

Assisting her professional clients to make astute changes to their spaces, even slight changes, created an opening for something new to come in to their consciousness and something else fall out of it.
In this workshop, you will learn how to use specific feng shui psychological tools that will enable you to accurately and effectively understand and help your clients follow your recommendations and realize success. You will learn how to listen to a space, how to look at what is said like a psychologist-feng shui practitioner would.
Assessment tools to be introduced in this session include using drawings from the client as well as identifying and recommending colors that elicit deeper positive responses based on a practitioner’s assessment of the client.

Taking Feng Shui Deeper – Science of Embodied Cognition – Why is it Important?
Each time a feng shui gathering occurs where education is the focus FSIA opens the door for new science-based discoveries to be presented by graduates of our course. Sylvia is a practicing consultant and Feng Shui Master, but loves the research and teaching end of the spectrum. She will be introducing new research, Embodied Cognition, to the discipline of feng shui. The idea that the mind is not only connected to the body but that the body influences the mind, is one of the more counter-intuitive ideas in cognitive science and its tenets speak loudly to the concepts that practicing feng shui professionals know well.
According to an article in Psychology Today, the brain, while important, is not the only resource we have available to us to generate behavior. Instead, the form of our behavior emerges from the real-time interaction between a nervous system in a body with particular capabilities and an environment that offers opportunities for behavior and information about those opportunities.
Sylvia will decipher this science for attendees and talk in depth about how we use it in our feng shui practice and teachings.
Benjamin Huntington, Interior Designer, ASID, stands out among his peers in feng shui as his knowledge of many approaches in the discipline make him a sought out practitioner in New York. His presentation is a primer for new practitioners and for those in the general audience who want some really good ideas to take back home and apply, this will be a fun and informative session for all.
Find out for yourself, why, even though you set goals and may even apply a little feng shui, that you keep coming back to the same issue in life. Our lives grow and change. As a result, symbols in your spaces need to be changed as well to support the growing dreams and goals.
In this interactive workshop, Benjamin will show you how to identify personal icons and symbols that work for you. He will share is trade secret of identifying three “primary drivers” which can have a powerful impact on how you live your life.
A group round table of Q & A, and sharing consultation case scenarios is scheduled. This will be a great learning experience for current students and new graduates and seasoned practitioners.
