WHAT TO EXPECT.
It is said among those who are wise, that the result or outcome of an endeavor will only be as good as the quality and care taken at the beginning. And so with that thought in mind I begin each consultation with establishing an intention for our work together. This can be done either on the phone during the initial contact or on-site at the beginning of our work. Once the intention has been established the structure of the appointment becomes clear. Depending on the nature of the intention I will choose a suitable approach to apply Feng Shui to your life.
MY PERSONAL PHILOSOPHY:
Many people confuse the art of Feng Shui with the tips and techniques used to manifest the changes. Feng Shui, to me, is bigger than that. It is a philosophy and a perspective that can be used to guide one’s life. We are all connected, say the masters that have come before. And so, we are also connected to our environments and all that came before in our individual locales. Applying these principles and techniques to one’s life is to affirm the connection that we share between each other, our environment, and the spirit or chi that permeates all that is. The Chinese speak of balance as the key to well being. I find this to be true in my personal experience. Feng Shui, for me, has been one of those spiritually inspired subjects that have enabled me personally to create balance in my life. I wish the same for you.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING A CONSULTATION AND HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
When people ask me that question I usually respond with a question. How long does it take you to make changes in your life? The uniqueness and individuality of each client determines the content of each session. Typically a session includes:
- IDENTIFICATION OF NEEDS (THE INTENTION)
- DETAILED ANALYSIS OF PRESENT CONDITION
- ESTABLISHMENT OF PRIORITIES AND POSSIBILITIES
- EVALUATION AND FORECAST FOR THE FUTURE
- DEVELOPMENT OF A PLAN
One factor to consider is the size of your space and how many people live or work there. Basically, I recommend a minimum of 2 hours for the initial consultation. It is very helpful if you have a sketch of the floor plan ready when I arrive. I also recommend that you either tape record the session or be prepared to take notes.
Feng Shui is 5000 years old and in that time it has taken on many different forms, techniques, and practices. There is no limit to the amount of information and suggestions that are available, and each time you have a consultation it can take on a totally different tone depending on the nature of your intention. Feng Shui is a process, something that manifests in your life over time.
WHAT ARE THE FEES AND WHAT DO THEY INCLUDE?
My fees are determined by the hour and depend on the particular situation. I will be happy to discuss them and help find the right approach for each situation. Typically the fee includes: Preparation time, an information packet that you will receive when I arrive, the time spent in your space and travel time.
Building trust in relationships is a cornerstone for my work. For that reason, I highly respect the confidential information that is shared with me. I agree to hold such information in strict confidence unless given express permission by the client to do otherwise.
