This workshop is an opportunity to become familiar with the centuries old method of divination which is at the heart of traditional Chinese Feng shui and learn to work intuitively with its vocabulary and tools.
Over millennia Chinese observers developed a system of symbols which to this day are used to predict and interpret events as well as to identify helpful and unhelpful locations. This â€˜codeâ€™ consists at its core of the twenty two Chinese characters, widely known as the Animals of the Chinese Zodiac and the Hexagrams of the I Ching or Book of Changes. We will look at the origins, meanings and uses of these symbols which make up the recurring sixty year gan zhi cycle of the Chinese calendar as well as indicating the nature of particular locations.
With these very simple tools you can start to predict and interpret events, personal and public, past and future and start to locate favourable and unfavourable spaces.
On one level this is a crash course in Chinese symbolism, on another an exploration of a centuries old method of divination that relates to both time and space. These simple tools are the true core of authentic Chinese feng shui.
Above all the purpose of this day is to learn to find the moments of decision by which a stuck life can be unstuck and a becalmed one set free. No prior knowledge of Chinese culture or feng shui is required.
Richard Ashworth studied with Master Chan Kun Wah from 1998 to 2002 and in 2005 completed the first ever feng shui course certificated by a Chinese University at Huazhong University in Central China.
From 2005 to 2007 he edited the Journal of the Feng Shui Society and in October 2006 addressed the 2nd International Conference on Scientific Feng Shui in Hong Kong, one of very few Westerners to do so.
In 2008 he was co-chair and organiser of the 1st International Congress on Scientific Feng Shui and the Built Environment in Turin. In 2012 he was accorded the rare honour of being invited to address the Grand Masters at the International Feng Shui Conference in Singapore.
