The Mindful Design Certification Program
Our program is taught live and in real-time!
We offer our live and 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. You learn how to read the energy of a space through design details, color, and layout. Certification students then move into the deep dive, core feng shui of Level 2. Over eleven weeks students build on their knowledge of feng shui design details, and expanded exploration of core feng shui systems and principles. In our 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.

“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.
