Biographical Info

Curious About Feng Shui?

We created Feng Shui Storyboard because we’re inspired by the courage of everyone who chooses a non-conventional, seemingly superstitious method to solve real-life, and sometimes very serious problems including:

The man whose business mysteriously lost hundreds of thousands of dollars
The woman whose heart was twice its normal size and doctors had given up
Numerous marriages repeatedly ending in divorce in the same house
These stories tell our story—because they illuminate the mystery of place. Whether we realize it, we are all profoundly shaped by our environment. It’s imperative that we unfold a better understanding of the working relationship between buildings and people. Only then will our buildings offer the grace required of them.

You’ve Come to the Perfect Place!

Founder of The Art of Placement, Katherine is uniquely poised to present a deeply profound experience in her latest project, the Feng Shui Storyboard.  It is designed to deepen your working understanding of Black Sect Feng Shui at all levels of experience. Even practitioners who have worked for many years, and students who have completed other programs, will find secrets within secrets and nuances to existing knowledge that will greatly expand their understanding of the work of a master. Katherine’s work has been to listen well and pass on this expertise to you.

With over 30 years of experience, Feng Shui Expert Katherine Metz is your guide and personal Sherlock in this new and exciting forum. For over 25 years, Katherine studied with His Holiness Grandmaster Professor Lin Yun, a revolutionary thinker who took the best of traditional Feng Shui and, with extraordinary foresight, introduced new concepts to suit our changing world.

Katherine MetzKatherine Metz is a Feng Shui Practitioner, Teacher, Mentor, and Bau-biologist.  She was first introduced to the art of Feng Shui by Abraham Kawai’i, a Hawaiian Kahuna. She then began studying with His Holiness Professor Lin Yun, the Grand Master of Black Sect Tantric Buddhism. In that period, Katherine also took it upon herself to learn the German field of Bau-Biologie, or “Building Biology,” the holistic study of the built environment and its impact on human and planetary health.

Blending other aspects of her background—a degree in Medical Sociology from the University of Michigan and design experience from owning an interior landscape business—with the Hawaiian and Chinese arts of healing and place, Katherine created The Art of Placement, where she went on to become a highly regarded practitioner, teacher, and lecturer. She has made a lasting mark in reaching out to the public and in her most recent endeavor serving as mentor to a select group of affiliates from around the world.

She has appeared on television and radio across the country. Her name appears in many Feng Shui books as authors acknowledge their teachers, and her writings continue to be used by students and practitioners around the world. In 1998 Katherine was keynote speaker for the 2nd Annual International Feng Shui Conference. She teaches and lectures, upon request, on the art and science of creating a healthy home and workplace.

Feng Shui School Spotlight Interview

Inner Harmony Feng Shui with LuAnn CibikAbout Tomorrow’s Key from director and founder, Trisha Keel…

Q: Please describe your very first coming into awareness about Feng Shui.
A: I read a magazine article about a hot air balloon company in San Diego that had tons of business but was losing money. The story told about how their feng shui consultant came in and pointed out that there was a roof leak over the bathroom which was in the Wealth gua, as well as a dripping faucet and a running toilet. The consultant told them they were not paying attention to details and recommended they call someone to fix the roof and plumbing. They did, and when the time came to write the repair person, their office manager was out to lunch, so they had to sit down and write the check themselves. When they did, they saw that she had been skimming money out of their bank account for years. My thoughts were: 1) What is feng shui? and 2) What is a Wealth gua? This was so long ago there was no internet. I had a hard time tracking down books about feng shui back then, but I was determined.
