Our Lineage Acknowledgement

We owe a debt of gratitude to our Black Sect Tantric Buddhist Feng Shui teachers, those who have come before us and taught us directly*. They learned the practice of feng shui directly from our root teacher, his Holiness Grandmaster Lin Yun Fourth Stage lineage holder of the Black Sect Tantric Buddhist Feng Shui teachings**. We are also beneficiaries of wisdom traditions that include Taoist, Buddhist, Chinese folk, Tibetan Bon and Tantric lineages. We are part of a golden chain of wisdom. These feng shui practices are not ours, and we cannot claim them as our own, they are part of a greater wisdom with deep roots. We are one branch on a great tree that has grown from these deeper lineage roots.

* Our current mentors are Katherine Metz and Rosalie Prinzivalli
** Her Holiness Khadro Crystal Chu Rinpoche is the current lineage holder and Fifth Stage of Black Sect Esoteric Buddhism

  • I explored many feng shui certification courses before enrolling in the Mindful Design School. What drew me in is their contemporary approach, their clear presentation and understanding of the current landscape. The learning environment that they’ve created nurtures a community of open minded fellow students that are respectful and hold space for each other. The way that Anjie and Laura transmit teachings of feng shui is both approachable and insightful.

  • What I learned in this program is to finally open my heart to myself. From the lessons to every group interaction to our mini-consults, the Mindful Design program has helped me to truly love myself. I was sad when the program ended but I know that this is a lifelong journey that will continue to unfold. Thank you, Anjie and Laura.

  • The style of teaching at the Mindful Design School is inclusive and engaging. There is no sense of competition among the students. There’s a real sense of community among fellow participants and everyone supports each other through the program. Anjie and Laura offer their teachings selflessly and are true mentors.

  • “Feng shui is for the home what acupuncture is for the body.”

    The best part of the Mindful Design program are the small break out groups with other students. With a lot of online programs you miss out on the personal relationships that naturally occur. The sense of community and the relationships that I found in this program helped me to take ownership of the knowledge and incorporate it into a living practice.

  • Anjie and Laura nurture a safe space in which I was able to re-establish a strong sense of confidence. Everything that has come out of my time with them has been utterly transformational.

    — Kris Feltman
    Graduate and Certified Mindful Design Feng Shui School Consultant

  • Going into this class, I thought I knew what feng shui was. What I learned from Laura and Anjie is that Feng shui is a tool that allows you to participate more deeply with life. It’s much more complex than just furniture placement. All the elements of life- people, places, relationships, feelings and spaces - are deeply interconnected and interwoven and feng shui helps to understand that harmony.

  • There is nothing like this course! This comprehensive course offers community; connection; deeper understanding of the Feng Shui principles and teachings; and a compassionate and heart-centred approach to working with future clients. It has been a transformational experience and I would recommend it in a heartbeat!

  • When researching the different types of schools of feng shui, it was important for me to choose one with a rich cultural lineage. Anjie and Laura from Mindful Design school provided that for me. The course equipped me with all the tools and clarity to not only start my own journey of self discovery but to explore the many modalities that make up Feng shui. I know I have found something that I will be doing for the rest of my life and can thoroughly recommend this school and its truly supportive group environment especially post graduation. You are always a part of the Mindful Design School family.

  • This program changed the way that I see spaces. Any room I walk into, I now have a more meaningful sense of why things are the way they are. Anjie and Laura are accessible and offer a level of personal support that make this a truly special program.

  • Anjie and Laura are wonderful teachers. They approach feng shui from a standpoint that is in depth and well informed. Because of their combined years of practice in architecture, design and feng shui, they are able to offer valuable teachings from real world experience. They’ve given me a foundation of teachings that allow me to be a confident practitioner of feng shui. An essential part of this experience was being able to watch Anjie and Laura as they performed feng shui consultations. Demonstration is very much at the heart of what they do and it’s what originally drew me to their program.

  • More than just another course! Mindful Design School has been a challenge and an exercise in staying present and trusting the process. While the material slowly sunk in, my engagement and confidence grew. As a stay-at-home mom searching for my “second-act”, I discovered Feng Shui brought together my passions for mindfulness and creativity. Working with people again and using my intuition has given me new purpose and so much joy! Rather than sacrifice or compromise, this work allows me to express who I am today and I am equally excited by how much more I have to learn. With renewed self-assurance the future feels so bright

    — Laura Metrano

  • Through this course I found a renewed interest in my meditative practice and learned so much about myself. I loved the small class size, which offered incredible amounts of support and engagement. Throughout the program Anjie and Laura made a lot of effort to guide us and demonstrate how to use feng shui to enhance the lives of ourselves and others.

  • Anjie and Laura are relatable. Because Anjie’s an architect and Laura’s an interior designer, I felt like this was a very realistic, grounded program. Besides getting really good knowledge of feng shui, it was a personal awakening, which you need in order to help others. I’m letting more opportunity into my life now, and I realized I was shutting it down before. I noticed changes in my career. It’s unbelievably powerful. During the course, I had such an influx of people calling me. I did an adjustment that we learned in my abundance area and then forgot about it, and the other day I realized that since I did that so many things have changed. It’s not even that my bank account changed, but I definitely live a more abundant life.

    This course was worth every penny! I loved it, and I’m sad it’s over! I love that you have the Collaboration Community for grads too.

  • If you’re thinking about enrolling, I would say that it’s probably one of the best investments that you could make. It will help you not only in terms of the content if you’re interested in pursuing feng shui, but also what I’ve learned about myself is invaluable. You can’t really put a price on feeling confident in your own beliefs and growing your knowledge into something that’s your own. Five star rating and more!

  • It started to bring together all these different pieces of my life that were sort of disjointed, and it just felt like the perfect vessel for me to express a lot of those things that I really love. All of the skills that I have - this pulls them all together in a way that I never thought was possible. Anjie and Laura are so dynamic and fun and engaging. It never felt like work. Signing up for this course was a life-changing decision, and it has continued to impact me every single day in ways that I did not expect.

    — Amy Kirby, Caz & Kozy

  • Signing up for the Mindful Design Feng Shui certification was truly divine timing! Diving into the world of Feng Shui with Laura and Anjie was fun, practical and a down-right eye-opening immersion into the world of energy. After 6 months, I was beyond confident in my ability to offer Feng Shui services, having clearly learned how to connect a person to their space using energy.

    Laura and Anjie are supportive, kind, and a major source of Feng Shui knowledge! By signing up for this course you become part of a lineage stretching thousands of years, while simultaneously forming the foundation of a new group of healers using the home as their tool. By joining, you're getting access to teachers, knowledge, and a group of like-minded individuals to embark on this journey with. If Feng Shui feels right to you, then go for it!

  • Finding Mindful Design felt really serendipitous, and I knew as soon as I joined the info session that I had to join the class. Even on the first day of classes, I was getting full body chills just recognizing why I needed to be in this course.

    I’ve never taken a class or any type of program where I felt so supported by the teachers and the community in general. It was just the most incredibly supportive community and I was so grateful to have that through last year.

    — Erin Delander, Much Love Interiors
    Mindful Design Certified Practitioner

  • I could never look at another interior design space again without thinking about feng shui. I can’t look at any space, it doesn’t matter where it is - I’m always looking at it through that filter now.

    The Mindful Design School program felt approachable, practical, doable, and modern, rather than being too stuck in traditions or just the mystical and esoteric. I also appreciated the credibility that Laura and Anjie brought to it.

  • Mindful Design Feng Shui school came to my attention as I was scrolling the internet wanting to educate myself on the art of placement. At the time I thought Feng Shui was mostly about moving furniture around and introducing decor to a space, to my amazement it was much more! You can only learn so much from the internet. That’s why when I discovered that there was a certification program I knew I had to sign up. You absorb so much from having the class and teachers at your fingertips, it’s engaging, interesting, and you have your teachers and your classmates to learn from. I saw a great number of changes happen in my life during and after the program, it was a wonderful experience. I definitely enjoyed the course and recommend to anyone interested in being a consultant or to anyone who just wants to know more about Feng Shui and mindfulness. They teach you a wealth of knowledge!!! Thank you Anjie & Laura, you two are true gifts!

  • This program has been such a breath of fresh air during such an uncertain time in our world. I looked forward to it each week. The program was truly my highlight of 2020 and has really given me the confidence to push through my fear and start my business. I was a starter not a finisher, it has pushed me and my sister to get our business going. We are actually doing it!

  • I love everything about the Feng Shui Mindful Design School! The content is uniformly organized, the platform is easy to navigate between live sessions and downloadable materials, and it’s the perfect combination of Feng Shui and mindfulness. The teachers are friendly, informative, and have a wealth of knowledge to share; most importantly, they ask for feedback and follow through. I have found this class to be a blessing, as a new mom still working her day job looking for a career transition.

    At the beginning of the course, I was a little overwhelmed with all the information. I can remember the one class when Anjie & Laura were talking about the bagua from a business perspective. And that was when the whole bagua map lit up for me! My understanding before was more literal and then a light bulb went off. I could see the bagua and feng shui in different perspectives. Everything just fell into place... That’s when I felt I became a true feng shui practitioner.

    Confidence was the biggest benefit I received from Mindful Design Program. There was a shift, and feng shui became more fluent for me. Confidence in the business sense, that I can do this and I understand feng shui so much better. Confidence in being comfortable of charging people valuing myself and my knowledge. I’ve been interested in feng shui for at least six years before the program. I read a couple of books on it, but through this course, I really have become fluent in feng shui. The Mindful Design program was the glue that put everything together and made feng shui make sense. And, I can proudly and confidently say “Yes, I am a feng shui consultant!

  • This course really supported me spiritually. I feel like I’ve grown so much. I’ve been able to bring all the tools that I have together in one space. I’ve listened to the classes more than once, and I love being able to do that. It really helps the material sink in.

    If you’re being guided to study feng shui, there’s a reason. Follow your intuition. After Mindful Design School, I’m listening to my intuition much more. I used to disregard it, and now I pay a lot more attention.

    — Gloria Cepin
    Mindful Design Certified Practitioner

  • The number one transformation that I received from the Mindful Design program was my confidence to do consultations. The support from the teachers, the live format and the opportunities to interact with and ask the teachers questions during the entire program made the difference.

    I was already a certified feng shui consultant but I really wanted to learn the true traditional BTB feng shui techniques. The BTB feng shui transcendental methods really resonate with me. I looked at many different schools, and this program was exactly what I was looking for. I knew there was more to it and not just moving your stuff around. I looked forward to our weekly classes and fell in love with feng shui even more! It really just goes so deep. I wouldn’t change a thing about the program! I just want to do more!

    — Rose G.
    Mindful Design Certified Practitioner

  • I would highly recommend Anjie & Laura’s Mindful Design Feng Shui School. It’s absolutely 100% worth the cost, and I want to keep learning even more! I’ve taken other programs, and I appreciated that this wasn’t a quick in and out over a weekend. This program brought me so much more information, knowledge and depth of understanding.

    While I had a good foundation of classical & compass methods prior to, these ladies really floored me with their breadth and depth of BTB knowledge. Week after week, I was drawn in to know more about how Feng Shui can help people change their lives to live more authentically & in harmony with others and their environment. I’ve been fortunate to take advantage of their one-on-one mentoring calls which provided me with the practical tools, skills, and confidence to conduct my first consultation.

    Since receiving my certification, I’ve really see changes beyond just being a feng shui consultant. I learned patience with the process and developed a deeper connection with my family. My qi, energy, has changed. I have a clear vision on what I want to do with my business. All these things in all areas of my life are coming together, and real tangible things are changing and really happening for me.

    As for the teachers, each brings their own insight & professional expertise to further enhance your Feng Shui education and connect it to practical applications one may see in the field. If you are looking for a BTB Feng Shui Certification program Mindful Design Feng Shui School definitely should be at the top of your list!

  • My background is in architecture and I knew very little about Feng Shui before entering the Mindful Design Program. Over the last few years I had been trying to bring more intention and mindfulness into all areas of my life but had never understood how that might translate into our personal and work spaces. Wanting to learn how ancient wisdom and mindfulness applied to our modern day spaces, I decided to jump into the program to learn more! I didn’t have a clear vision for how I would integrate Feng Shui with my current profession, but I was so inspired by both Anjie and Laura’s integration of Feng Shui into their own businesses that I knew that the course would be a place for me to find my own path.

    Within a few classes I had a big a-ha moment—happiness in your life and in your space starts with youMindful Design School gave me the confidence and the practical tools to start seeing immediate shifts in my own energy. Further, Anjie and Laura’s deep knowledge of Feng Shui combined with their thoughtful and intentional teaching approach created a wonderfully rich environment for both my personal and professional growth. In each class we learned both practical and transcendental tools that we could put into practice right away. Each week I was seeing shifts with both myself, my space and my family. By the end of the course, I had a profound understanding of the dynamic relationship between people and their spaces and the confidence to start my own consulting business.

    Mindful Design School’s supportive and nurturing environment helped me make tremendous changes in my life…thank you Anjie & Laura!
