The Spirit of the School...
By changing myself, I change the world.
Golden Gate Feng Shui School is dedicated to teaching individuals to live vibrant lives by showing them how to make lifestyle changes that extend beyond themselves. Our intention is to have our students apply newfound knowledge of healing modalities to their own lives as well as help others make profound changes in theirs, thus creating harmony, enhancing lives, and fostering wellbeing in their communities.
Whether your motivation to attain professional certification stems from the desire to develop a sustainable and satisfying career path, or from a desire to understand the energetic imprint our living choices have, or from a desire to impact the health of family and friends by understanding how to harness the healing power of environments, this course will have a profound and lasting impact that flows through and beyond our own lives.
Our Educational Approach...
Teach principles, not dogma.
What is food to one man may be fierce poison to others.
- Titus Lucretius, Roman poet
Although this statement was made in the first century AD, it still holds true today. It forms the basis of our belief in teaching principles, not dogma. Therefore the purpose of our course offerings is not for students to adopt external belief systems, but rather to expand their own.
Understanding principle opens the door to intuition and allows our actions to flow naturally. By internalizing the coursework and combining it with their own knowledge, students create stepping-stones that allow them to develop their own practice specifically tailored to each situation and client.
Offer experiential learning
Wisdom becomes knowledge when it becomes your personal experience.
-Yogi Bhajan, Kundalini Yoga Master
We believe in offering students an opportunity to experience the coursework, not just listen to faculty talk about it.
Therefore most classes are set up to provide both lectures and hands-on experience. That means you will have opportunities to:
Conduct Feng Shui site visits and develop your own recommendations.
Take Electro-magnetic Field (EMF) reading yourself and develop remediation suggestions based upon information you have learned.
Learn about Feng Shui Topography by traversing the land and locating ley lines, dragon veins, and auspicious sites.
Discover how to diagnose geopathic stress (damaging earth energies) that impact a site through methods taught in class.
Participate in earth and water rituals, ground-breaking ceremonies, and other processes that allow us to uncover and connect to the hidden spirit of land, sky, and water.
In addition, students that opt to complete the Fast Track program will be guided in coursework whose end result provides the professional framework from which to create a thriving Feng Shui practice.
Each year since its inception, the Golden Gate Feng Shui School has presented a program whose content expands and changes to reflect the unique needs of the time. This year is no exception. We have an amazing program.
This curriculum is comprised of nine trimester over three years, based on:
Foundation and Form School
