What is Feng Shui?
At the most basic level, Feng Shui is the relationship between human beings and the environments. It has developed for more than three thousand years through observing nature and its power, and through acknowledging the natural forces and human beings' interaction with these forces. Feng Shui makes us aware of how our environment affects us and provides tools to change our surroundings to achieve specific goals and to increase our overall well-being.
What is Feng Shui design philosophy?
Feng Shui and design are two separate things. Design varies from different personal tastes. Feng Shui can be implemented into any designs.
Feng Shui is not tied to any designs, any styles and certainly not to any objects.
It is a lens through which we could examine how much we are aligned and in harmony with our own living environment.
In theory, every home is a Feng Shui home - It is only a matter of how good the Feng Shui is.
I have heard about so many different types of Feng Shui. Which one is better? Which type are you practicing?
We at Jun Feng Shui are practicing Traditional (Classical) Chinese Feng Shui. There are different Feng Shui schools and some schools may even contradict each other. Eight Mansions, BTB, Pyramid...there is no right or wrong. Choose which you personally resonate with. One thing to keep in mind: When we analyze Feng Shui of a home, it is very important to start by looking at the big picture - Look from the outside. Examine its surroundings. Many times we tend to focus too much on details and do not see the big picture. If a house is dangling over a cliff, does it matter what color the couch is?
Is Feng Shui for me?
Yes - If you are looking to enhance your well-being.
No - If you are looking to solve all your life problems or desperately expecting things to change right away.
Feng Shui is a scientific study of the environment and environmental effects on people. It is neither a superstition nor a religion. The effects of Feng Shui work are not always immediately apparent and dramatic.
When shall I hire a Feng Shui consultant?
Anytime - preferably before your purchase, construction or renovation of the home. Prevention is always better than cure!
What are the steps of Feng Shui work for an empty lot?
Feng Shui project for an empty lot has more flexibility than an existing house, but on the other hand, it is more complicated. First, we evaluate and choose a plot of land that has good Feng Shui given the external environments. Based on the geographic features of the land, we find out the best general orientation of the house. Then we use Flying Star (Xuan Kong Method) to generate geomantic charts and find out the best specific orientation of the house. After that we allocate the usage of the space and location of windows and doors. We then choose workable exterior and room colors that match occupants' personal tastes as well. At last, plan the placement of furniture.
Who are you working with?
We work with home owners, architects, builders and designers.
