Traditional Chinese Feng Shui is the original knowledge passed down from master to disciple with strong roots dating back to the Tang Dynasty (618-907 AD). Ancient methods have been adapted, tested and proven for effective use in the 21st century.
With Traditional Chinese Feng Shui, it is the Chinese tradition of the master passing down the practise knowledge to the disciple.
The handing down of the master’s practice skills is on a one-to-one basis, from one generation to the next.
The master has been using the practice skills that have been proven and established not only from his time but also from his lineage Masters.
The master then mentors his disciples through an apprenticeship to a fully trained consultant. This process can take hundreds of hours of the master’s time, lasting ten years or more.
The master only allows the disciple to practise using the master’s name after he is confident of doing the job well.
I am a member of Alliance Feng Shui and my Master is Shyan Tseng of Blue Dragon Feng Shui.
This is very different to contemporary Feng Shui teaching, which is classroom-based. I was a Forensic Scientist at the Metropolitan Police (New Scotland Yard).
I was trained as a court going forensic scientist by trainers who had decades of experience. They taught you proven and reliable methods that had been developed from the Laboratory’s history.
There are University degree courses in Forensic Science. The syllabus is taught by the teachers who have based their knowledge on books or worked previously in Forensic Science Laboratories. The graduates do not practise Forensic Science when they complete the course.
Being taught and being trained are two very different things.
