Amanda CollinsRed Ribbon Professional Consultant International Feng Shui School
Amanda Collins is an internationally recognized Feng Shui consultant, speaker, and instructor as well as the owner and founder of her San Diego Feng Shui her consulting practice, and the International Feng Shui School, a certification-training program. Born and raised in Ireland, she has studied with leading Feng Shui masters around the world. Amanda now makes her home in San Diego, where she teaches and serves corporate and residential clients throughout America.
Amanda trained with renowned masters in China in the Compass School of Feng Shui, Black Sect Tantric Buddhism, Land Form and Traditional Feng Shui. A devoted scholar and traveler, she has also studied sacred spaces in Asia, Australia, Europe and South America. Closer to home, Amanda attended the Feng Shui Institute in Los Angeles and is certified in Green Design, Interior redesign, and showcasing homes for sale.
Amanda has become a sought-after educator herself ï¿½ teaching at learning institutions like the Art Institute and Mesa College ï¿½ and training students at her own Feng Shui School . She also consults for companies like Dream Works, Bloomingdales, Bank of America, Morgan Stanley and Hewlett-Packard.
Amanda unknowingly started practicing Feng Shui as a girl growing up in the Irish countryside. She would re-arrange family furniture, as well as bring stones, flowers and other natural elements into their home ï¿½ just from pure instinct and a profound love of nature. Amanda didnï¿½t realize she was intuitively practicing this ancient discipline until she moved to the U.S. and was repeatedly asked if she ï¿½Feng Shuiedï¿½ her home!
Her upbringing in Irelandï¿½s rolling green hills and forests has helped inform a philosophy that Feng Shui is about harmonizing with the natural world. Amanda sees living and working spaces as reflections of peopleï¿½s interior lives, and helps clients become aware of what their environment is communicating about them. She combines her keen intuition and innate artistic flair with ancient scientific principles to help clients find a new appreciation for their surroundings and themselves.
Individuals and families routinely announce healings, soul mates, pregnancies, promotions and enhanced prosperity when working with Amanda. Corporate clients, including Fortune 500 companies, report increased productivity, earnings and morale.
It is Amandaï¿½s greatest privilege to help facilitate such success and well-being through the art and science of Feng Shui.
From marriage consultations to interior design recommendations, Amanda truly listens to clients ~ realizing not everyone wants to rearrange everything all at once! She sees that a greater awareness and subtle changes, like moving furniture and clearing clutter, can shift an entire dynamic.
Amandaï¿½s intuition, compassion and wisdom spring from her commitment to spiritual growth and a deep connection with nature. A devoted Yogi, Amanda is a certified Deep Yoga teacher. The first few hours of each day begin with spiritual practice ï¿½ asana, chanting, meditation and journaling ï¿½ which allow Amanda to serve with clarity and compassion. She is an avid recycler and bicyclist who totes canvas bags to the grocery store, times her showers and makes organic cleaning supplies from common household products.
Even in an urban area, Amanda aims to live in harmony with all life and is committed to spreading love through her work ï¿½ as evidenced in many glowing testimonials.
Amanda visits homes and businesses for in-person readings or consults via phone or email for international clients. She advises individuals, families, architects, realtors, interior designers, developers, and all kinds of companies in finding practical, contemporary solutions that increase well-being, success and harmony.
It has been a true honor to receive my Master Certification in Feng Shui from Amanda Collins. She is an amazing and gifted teacher. TheInternationalFengShuiSchooloffers an amazing experience to all aspiring Feng Shui Masters. â€

Amanda works from her heart and is very gifted at what she does. I completed her feng shui course equipped with the ancient knowledge and wisdom of this beautiful art and complex science. However, It wasnâ€™t until I used it on my own business that I truly realized the power of this cosmic energy. Amanda has helping me reconnect with this way of life. Much gratitude and love, Yours under the Elm, Ian
Joan Garland Moore It was absolutely amazing so sad its over. Iâ€™m carrying the big manual around and reading it every chance I get thank you so much for coming to Walmer and sharing your wisdom on Feng Shui it was inspirational Xx
Hey Amanda and all you other gorgeous people who shared the training with me last week. Thank you for a wonderful week. I keep on smiling (and yes, sometimes even laughing) to myself as memories from the week scroll through my mind. We will keep in touch x x x
Truly inspired by the teachings and all of you, wonderful time and times to come, much love to each and everyone of you..
I would do the course all again tomorrow and do it forever. I really enjoyed myself, loved the people I met and learned what I think is something really valuable.
Since opening up to the Ancient knowledge of Feng Shui, Iâ€™m starting to connect the dots in other areas of my life. Not only has it benefitted me but Iâ€™m seeing a positive difference in the people whoâ€™s houses Iâ€™m Feng Shuing also. I see it as therapy. Itâ€™s a very intimate thing when you read the clientâ€™s questionnaires. People reveal their deepest fears and wishes. And itâ€™s a very special thing and I feel honored to be able to help them gain clarity in their lives in some small way. I feel a deep need to help people and Iâ€™m absolutely delighted to do it through the peaceful harmonious way of Feng Shui. The thing I liked least is that it ended too soon because I know there is soo much more to know and learn and remember! The thing I liked most is I learned a lot more than Feng Shui in the class like chanting with visualization and meditation, trust of others, acceptance of myself. I also learned, by example, that itâ€™s possible to be positive all day long teaching a course like this! Thereâ€™s so much more that I learned too but Iâ€™d be here for hours!
Thank you Amazing Amanda! Iâ€™m sure itâ€™s not the first time youâ€™ve heard the term Amazing Amanda! Lots of love and lots of beautiful light!!

I pretty much loved everything about the class. The camaraderie was really nice and I really loved the music, the dancing, and the chanting in which you so enthusiastically took part in. It inspired even the shyest of students (which obviously wasnâ€™t me) LOL the Goddess/ Angel cards etc. were a really nice touch- especially if you were not use to doing this sort of thing. I found that the cards I picked were always pertinent to my day for some reason- very interesting to say the least; I enjoyed learning about all the â€œtoolsâ€
You introduced us to from the compass, to cleansing salts, space clearing techniques using bells, chimes etc. I loved all the fresh air you allowed us to have each day, the field trips. I truly enjoyed everything you had to shareâ€¦your experiences, words of wisdom, and your graciousness and heart. Great job on allowing for students differences. You certainly bring out the best in all your students.
You are a great teacher and have so much to share with this universe. WOW! Thank you for taking us under your wing. You are an inspiration to all women for your inner beauty, and desire to make this world better.
I truly appreciate all the time and energy you put into this class
You are loved
Amanda Collins came to my home and did a Feng Shui consultation. She gave me very practical suggestions, simple changes to make and did an energy clearing. I followed her suggestions and have to say the difference has been life changing. My house feels like a home and my life feels like its moving in the right direction. My friends noticed the change in my home and in me! The amazing thing to me was I still have the same furniture and most of the same accents. I followed her instructions on how to lay things out, what elements to add and what take awayâ€¦and did it all with intention.
This went so well, we moved on to Feng Shui the office I work in. Our company has since felt a big increase in activity, interest and sales of our product! It helped bring us together as a group. Thanks Amanda!
After experiencing the amazing effects of Feng Shui I decided I must take Amandaâ€™s San Diego School of Feng Shui Master Training in May 2010 and have to say I am really glad I did! Amanda has an incredible wealth of knowledge to share. She is very pleasant, fun, and easy to learn from. Her class gave me all the tools I need to start my own Feng Shui business. This training brings together many of the aspects that relate to Feng Shui and shows how to make practical application. It gives her students the tools they need to help people make meaningful and positive change. She also provides continued learning opportunities and support for her students. I would love to take another one of her classes!

I had been looking for a San Diego-based Feng Shui Master teacher and course to enhance various Feng Shui studies begun in 2000. I attended two lectures by Amanda By the quality of her lecture and handouts and our general rapport, I enrolled in and graduated from the San Diego School of Feng Shui June 2009 course. First, as a result of knowledge gained, I was able to uplift my own home and life, in short, by implementing ALL Classical remedies, including strengthening my element of Water in a marriage relationship and home that was Wood based. Amanda assisted me with a thorough space clearing; one major Water enhancement was placing a large metal fountain in the backyard. Within a few months, I had improved health, a rather complicated financial issue was resolved in our favor, and I concluded to make a career change to Feng Shui consulting after many years in retail business and also corporateAmerica. In brief: Advanced Feng Shui studies and association with Amanda Collins/San Diego School of Feng Shui made for great progress in the areas of relationship, physical, and financial well being and career. I have recently begun serving others via my Feng Shui practice; it is extremely rewarding to see progress in my life and the lives of others thru applying skills learned from Amanda Collins and the San Diego School of Feng Shui.

â€œI took Amandaâ€™s Feng Shui Master training and it has changed my practice and life! I have been in the healing arts for over 16 years and have been practicing Oriental Medicine for 7 years. To add this ancient art to my practice has helped me to see an even more in-depth and complete view of my patientâ€™s health and lifestyle. The Feng Shui starts to shift their life as soon as you start the consult and the changes are POWERFUL! It is an invaluable addition to my practice and Amandaâ€™s wisdom, practicality and expertise made it possible for me to graduate from the course and start a practice of my own. I recommend this to ANYBODY to wants to be more in tune for their own life or to help others.â€ â€“ Sarah Wergin, R.N., Acupuncturist, Sound Healer
After doing research online on Feng Shui schools, I came across Amandaâ€™s web site. I was impressed by the training outline and the great amount of information she would be covering during the training. From the first time I met Amanda I felt welcomed and so very comfortable by her presence and serene environment.
Amanda is truly gifted as a Master Feng Shui practitioner/instructor and a beautiful soul. The way she presents her classes is empowering, enjoyable, and her stories/examples will keep you wanting more. Her knowledge, wisdom, insight, compassion, intuition, and humor make her a great role model. It is obvious that she loves her occupation and serves us with her exquisite talents. Taking her class will amaze you, will open and expand your life. This will be an investment in yourself with enormous outcome. I will be eternally grateful for her guidance!
Amanda has been more than just a Feng Shui instructor to me. She is my inspiration and has taught me how to pray/meditate, how to change the energy flow inside of me and how to take control of my life. This was all done by using Feng Shui practices and incorporating them into my current spiritual life. She continues to guide me to new levels anytime I ask. Amanda is a friend, advisor, coach, team leader and cheerleader-for-life and is genuinely happy to see me succeed.
She does this by leading by example and showing that hard work and determination will bring results right to your feet. Amanda, a million thanks for taking the Feng Shui road with me and for showing me that this road can be a harmonious and peaceful one!
