The 2013 Feng Shui Society conference in London featured high-impact lectures by seven Feng Shui masters from all over the world.
The conference itself was an international affair, with attendees from 17 countries including Brazil, Dubai, Singapore and Norway. (I was the only audience member from the U.S.A..)
The first speaker, William (Bill) Spear, may be familiar as the author of the best-selling book Feng Shui Made Easy (affiliate link). His was the first Feng Shui book I ever read and I still recommend it most highly to anyone starting out with Feng Shui.
Bill focused on the importance of the I Ching in making full use of all that Feng Shui has to offer.
He encouraged us to make a shift in the way we use Feng Shui, from acting reactively when times are tough, to making Feng Shui a proactive part of our everyday lives.
Wise words indeed.
Next, Michael Oon spoke about cycles of time according to Feng Shui. There are nine 20-year cycles; we are currently in Period 8, which goes from 2004-2024.
Michael explained that Period 8 is therefore likely to put an emphasis on personal development and intellectual achievement, artisanal products, and individual initiatives such as entrepreneurship among other things.
The morning’s final speaker, Davina MacKail spoke about practical Feng Shui issues involved in buying and selling real estate.
Her message included a powerful plea to “Bring back housewarming parties!” which create a natural and powerful energetic “space clearing” for any new space you move into!
Stay tuned for Part 2! There’s much more to come about the afternoon’s speakers including Karen Kingston, plus a moving tribute to a Feng Shui master we lost last year.
