Founder of Qi Consultancy

2014 – present

A chance encounter with my first Shifu in Man Mo Temple, Hollywood Road, Hong Kong led towards a path less travelled. According to his astrological reading, my destiny showed itself to be a practicing Feng Shui consultant, an area of ancient Chinese metaphysics, arts, science and philosophy that I held much interest in but did not know much about! Two years, many books, immersive courses and three Shifu’s later I have found an art form, philosophy and science which tailors to many of my interests.

Qi Consultancy was established to share valuable universal design principals and ideas for living.
