About the School
The Feng Shui Institute of America (FSIA), has been in existence since 1994. Founded by Nancilee Wydra, Feng Shui Master, the school offers a contemporary scientific feng shui curriculum also known in the industry as Pyramid or Scientific Feng Shui. We are a multi-disciplined, world-wide feng shui certification school.
In 2013, Connie Spruill former Director of the school took over and eventually purchased the school upon Nancilee’s retirement.
Connie received her Feng Shui Masters designation in 2009. Under her guidance, the school has expanded world-wide and moved completely online. FSIA has expanded over the years adding intensive experiential approaches to each level’s course work.
The certification course is divided into three stepping stones of learning and is presented online through a teaching platform that includes videos, podcasts, quizzes and lots of other interaction.
Level One Foundational Materials and Tenets
Level Two Intro to Scientific Feng Shui including all assessment/evaluation Tools
Level Three Case Studies/Advanced Scientific Concepts and field experience
Students are guided in applying unique feng shui assessment tools developed by outside researchers and scientists as adjunct faculty at our annual training events to teach the concepts of the many sciences we’ve integrated into our certification. Some of those sciences include: molecular cell biology; near-sciences; anthropology; sociology, behavioral epi-genetics; sacred geometry and more. Read below what one of our graduates thought about the course.
I appreciated the design of the program, as it offered flexibility to work at my own pace and the mentor assigned to me was available as needed, to answer my questions. The mentorship offers an intimacy in learning which I was not expecting, yet was one of the most valuable parts of the program.”
Kimberly Garner- Designer
“…I felt like my mentor had a genuine wish to educate good practitioners and not just make money. For what the school offered it seemed like I would get a lot of value for what I invested. I learned to communicate feng shui in a modern way that many people can relate to. I also developed good interviewing skills to uncover the true issue causing problems with my clients.
