Feng Shui Techniques to Control One’s Destiny in I-Ching
Professor Henry Li, International General Society for Taoist Philosophy Studies, Taiwan

The Feng Shui concept of “auspiciousness” of a significant activity such as a wedding or career change is familiar to many, and refers to an ideal time and location for the event to take place. Taoist studies reveal the existence of three types of luck: Heaven’s Luck “Tian”, Earth’s Luck “Di” and Man’s Luck “Ren”. All three luck forms will accompany Man throughout his lifetime and are responsible for determining his unique ideal conditions for an activity. Much of the profound wisdom on auspiciousness is embodied in I-Ching. Discover how these Feng Shui theories can complement I-Ching principles that govern time and location to develop techniques that can achieve the ultimate goal of changing one’s destiny.

Yi Jing – Time Selection by Season, Month, Week and Day
Master Jacek Kryg, School Without Borders, Poland

In Yijing, every hexagram represents one of the four seasons, one of the twelve months or one of the sixty Chinese weeks, while the changing lines represents days. This, in essence, relates to our time dimension, which is thus not only an important aspect of Yjing, but is also very useful in the modern day. By knowing how to build and create the main and nuclear hexagram, it is possible to obtain a clear observation of the time dimension relating to our actions when in consultation with the Yijing oracle. Discover how to build the main hexagram in Yijing using 50 stalks of achillea millefolium, select the best time for your various activities using the One Thousand Year Calendars and even add an extra time dimension for your home.

Behind The Curtains of Feng Shui and I Ching
Master Cristina Groza, Feng Shui Barrett&Partners, Romania

Magic never fails to amaze with fascinating performances that impress and astound at first glance. Try imagining a magician on stage, waving a black empty hat. The next moment, he miraculously pulls a rabbit out from the very same hat, drawing gasps of disbelief from the audience. We are in awe because we are unable to explain how the performance works. We perceive the act as magical because that is what our eyes see. It is only when the curtains are drawn back and we go behind the scenes, that we realize and understand the true mechanisms that make these seemingly amazing feats possible. Interestingly, Feng Shui and I Ching are likened to magic. Their effects are mysterious and captivating, drawing intrigue at its results. However, not many are privy to what really happens behind the curtains of Chinese Metaphysics. What exactly are the processes that trigger their various effects? Be prepared for an eye-opening experience "down the rabbit hole" of Feng Shui and I Ching sciences in this all-revealing session.
