The Mindful Design Certification Program

Our program is taught online live, in real-time!

An immersive 100+ hr (six month) Feng Shui mentorship program

We offer our live online feng shui certification program twice a year (Spring and Fall). Classes begin with an immersive foundational live, online weekend training. Students then continue to build their knowledge with our on-going case studies, live tutorials, and auditing actual client consultations. Students learn how to read the energy of a space through design details, color, and layout. Over eleven weeks students build on their knowledge of feng shui design details, and expanded exploration of core feng shui systems and principles. In this full feng shui certification program students learn how to adjust, correct, and enhance using the nuanced and powerful transcendental side of Black Sect feng shui.

This is program is for beginners as well as feng shui experts. No prior experience with feng shui is required.

This project is also a great opportunity to begin working with feng shui in a specific area that you could build into a service or business focus.

FENG SHUI CASE STUDIES – TWO CLIENT CONSULTATIONS: Each student is required to complete two Feng Shui consultations. As students work through their consultations they are given hands-on support and in class guidance from both Laura and Anjie. A brief summary and report of the consultations is submitted to your teachers for review in order to complete the certification.


When you join the Mindful Design certification program you also become part of a bigger community. To foster this, students are placed in smaller breakout groups where they meet weekly to review and discuss the material they are learning. These small study groups allow students to connect further with their fellow classmates and cohort.

“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!”
