One of the pleasures I get from teaching in Vienna is to get to see the city from a feng shui perspective, because Edith, my organiser often would put aside one day before the main course to do a feng shui study tour of different areas of the city.


In the coming 3-Days Xuan Kong Da Gua Master-Course in October, we will do the same again: 3 hours of theory and 3 hours of walking tour. This time, on the 24 October 2014, we will visit the “The Golden Mile of Vienna” – Graben - Kohlmarkt – Tuchlauben, a very trendy and exclusive shopping area in the centre of the Vienna, with many famous designer shops. We will focus on the different aspects of the shop, in particular the front entrance or the qi-mouth, by famous designers such as Hans Hollein, Otto Wagner and Adolf Loos, etc. Do come and join us, just drop us a line and we will get you registered for the day.

Master-Course on Xuan Kong Da Gua School of Feng Shui


Date: 25 -27 October, 2015

Venue: Impact HUB, Lindebgasse 56/ 18-19

In China there were six Xuan Kong schools during the late Qing and early Republic era, but nowadays only two Xuan Kong schools survived, one is the more popular and more well-known Xuan Kong Fei Xing (Flying Stars) School made popular by Qing Dynasty scholar Shen Zhu-Reng and the other is the more secretive and less well-known Xuan Kong Da Gua (XKDG) system promoted by Zhang Xin-Yin about the same time.


The term Xuan Kong stands for time and space and Da Gua stands for the 64 Hexagrams; the core of this system is based not on flying the stars but on using the Early Heaven Trigrams with the Luoshu numbers as applied to the Hexagrams to assess the Ji-Xiong (auspicious and harmfulness) of a situation, using the Coming Dragon, the Going Water, the Sitting and the Facing of a site as references.


Xuan Kong Da Gua (XKDG) has its origin in the square-circle diagram of arranging the 64 Hexagrams as passed down to Shao Yong via Chen Tuan. It formed a map for the Gua Qi distribution for a site, where the Earth Qi is considered to be the Ti (the Body) and the Heaven Qi is the Yong (the Usage). You will find them on the last four rings of our San Yuan Bazhai Luopan compass. These four rings are very important and are the “keys” to unlock the secrets XKDG Feng Shui and XKDG Date Selections.


The XKDG School of feng shui is different to but has a synergy with the Flying Star School of feng shui because when the Mountain Star and the Water Star in a Flying Star chart are combined together they form a Hexagram (Da Gua) as well.


XKDG is a very useful system when considering the relationship between the Coming Dragon (the mountain behind a site) and the Going Water (the water in front), the sitting and the facing of a site, which can help us how to select a site and how to orientate the building on the site. This system complements the Flying Star well and at the same time we can strengthen our theoretical understanding of Xuan Kong (time/space) feng shui.


Because in this system the compass reading of 360 degrees is divided into 64 Hexagrams of approximate 5 degrees each, it is a very detail and precise method. However the precision required may render it being impractical by some views, but nevertheless it is intellectually satisfying.


Students who wish to deepen their knowledge Xuan Kong feng shui should study this system to take their professional skill and knowledge to a higher level.


In this three-days advanced course we not only will teach you the basics theories of the XKDG system but also how to apply them it selecting a building or tomb site in practice. This is an unique opportunity for you to add another technique to your Compass ferng shui methods, but you will need to have a basic knowledge of how to recognize the Chinese characters for the 10 Heavenly Stems and the 12 Earthly Branches, as well as some of the fundamental concepts used in Feng Shui, like the Hetu, the Luoshu, Early and Later Heaven Trigrams and the construction of the 64 Hexagrams.


Before coming to his advanced course, you are required to learn to recognize and be able to write the 10 Heavenly Stems and the 12 Earthly Branches as well as the 8 Trigrams characters.

Meisterkurse für Expert Innen 2013

Die Weiterbildung und der kontinuierliche Austausch im Berufsstand der Feng Shui-BeraterInnen ist mir ein großes Anliegen. Daher veranstalte ich seit 2011 Fachfortbildungen sowie Meisterkurse mit Howard Choy.

Die Workshops bieten die Gelegenheit an der Seite eines erfahrenen Lehrers die Feinheiten und „handwerklichen Fertigkeiten“ in der Anwendung von klassischem Feng Shui aus nächster Nähe zu beobachten und zu erlernen. Wir wenden sowohl Methoden aus Formschule als auch der Kompassschulen an. Teilnehmer sollten mit diesen Techniken vertraut sein.

Wir freuen uns auf einen anspruchsvollen und praxisbezogenen Workshop in der angenehmen Atmosphäre einer überschaubaren Gruppe (max. 20 Teilnehmern). Der Unterricht erfolgt in englischer Sprache mit deutscher Übersetzung! Kursort ist Wien.

4-Days Advanced Feixing and Bazhai Feng Shui

With Howard Choy, Vienna, 26-29 October 2012

Organized by Edith Feldhofer of Feng Shui Consult



This 4-days course will start with a summary and an overview of the four basic patterns and the ten arrangements of the Feixing (Flying Star) charts, including new materials on the concept of “Shou Shan Chu Sha” (Receive Mountain and put up with Sha) on how to integrate the Star qi with the Form qi. Also, we will look at the working of two alternative Bazhai (Eight House) systems, namely the “Bazhai Minging” and “Yangzhai Sanyao”, where the reference points for calculating the distribution of the 8 Wandering Stars are different.


It is assumed that the potential participants of this Master Course has completed some basic trainings in Flying Stars and Eight House, and know how to construct a normal star chart, as well as how to determine the directionality and the “Heaven’s Heart” of a chart.


The course is organized in 6 parts:


Part I: An overview mentioned above.

Including the following topics if they are not covered adequately before in your own study:

How to determine the directionality of a house

Prosperous Sitting and Prosperous Facing

A line of Fiery Pits (A Reversed House)

Double Stars Arriving at the Facing Palace

Double Stars Arriving at the Sitting Palace

Facing Period Star in Prison and Usage (Di Yun)

Yin Yang Adding Up to 10

Fu Yin and Fan Yin

Fu Mu (Parent) San Ban Gua (SBG)

Lian Zhu (A Continuous String of Pearls) SBG

Seven Stars Robbery

Castle Gates Two Palaces

Replacement Stars - their theories and practice


Part II: Star chart analysis.

2.1 Strategy for star chart analysis.

2.2 Methodology for star chart analysis.

2.3 Details for star chart analysis, including how to analyze and give judgments to the nine stars with Wuxing principles.

2.4 The theory and practice behind the “jiehua” cures.

2.5 Sample case studies from the old masters, including how to use two charts for the same house.


Part III: Master Luo Shi-Pang’s advance methods on how to assess the influence of the external qi onto the internal qi field of a star chart. This is new material available for the first time.

3.1 Naqi and Naqi openings.

3.2 How to calculate and assess the influence of external time qi and form qi onto the internal qi field of a star chart.

2.3 Sample case studies from the old masters using this methodology.


Part IV: San Yuan Xuan Kong Feixing Water Methods.

4.1 Master Shen’s Water Method.

4.2 The “Reversal” Water Method.

4.3 The “City Door” (Cheng Men) Water Method.

4.4 The “Seven Stars Robbery” Water Method.


Part V: Advanced Bazhai systems including the four alternative systems and how to use two of them in practice.


Part VI: On-site application with a real case study of a reasonable level of complexity, so the participants will gain a first hand knowledge on how a working consultant would use Flying Stars in practice. 


If you already have a good grasp of the Flying Stars and are looking for the “finishing touch” with a practicing Feng Shui Architect, then this is a perfect course for you. By the end of the course we hope to remove all the confusions you have in the past about the two major Compass schools of Feng Shui.


You are also welcome to bring in your own projects for a second opinion and we will use them as part of the teaching practices, please inform the organizer before hand with full documentation (eg. Google Earth pictures, onsite pictures, floor plans and directional reading, etc) for a speedy feedback.


Students from different schools are all welcome!

In this first master class in Austria with Howard Choy, we will look at Feng Shui and the design of retail stores, where you can learn the advanced techniques of business Feng Shui to help the storeowners to achieve an optimum and attractive atmosphere that will increase customer patronage and sales revenue.


As usual we will begin the workshop with a brief introduction to the subject and visiting the shops. In the following days, we will work on the Feng Shui analysis, discuss its impact on the particular business and develop some design approaches for discussions and arrive at a final set of suggestions for presentation to our clients.


At the workshop we want to convey how different requirements can be considered with different retail concepts and arrive at a design that is optimal and individual, and thus create the best conditions for the context of the site and for the storeowners.

The workshop provides tan opportunity to observe up close and learn from an experienced teacher, the intricacies and "craftsmanship" in the application of classical Feng Shui. We will use both the Form and the Compass schools methods so some knowledge of Feng Shui is required from the participants.


You can look forward to a demanding and hands-on workshop in a pleasant atmosphere of small size study group of up to a maximum of 20 participants, all teaching will be done in English with German translation.
