“But I don’t want to do an online course!”

Yes, we agree! That’s why our Essential Feng Shui Practitioner Training includes live, interactive coaching calls every week and lifetime access to our private Facebook forum. These provide you with ongoing opportunities to post photos, ask questions, and discuss any facet of the training with your teachers and classmates. We connect, learn, grow, and have fun together! As you watch the pre-recorded lectures at your own pace, you can join the live weekly coaching calls and enjoy the ongoing conversation on our forum. Our coaching calls are hosted by Terah Kathryn Collins and WSFS teachers and are recorded and archived so that you don’t miss a thing.

“How do the live weekly coaching calls work?”

Each week, Terah Kathryn Collins or other WSFS teacher hosts a live coaching call to give you plenty of opportunities to ask your questions, receive support, share your experiences, and learn from the stories and insights offered by your teachers and classmates. Here is the link to our coaching call calendar. Please note: our coaching calls are recorded and archived for your convenience.

“Why do you include live coaching calls and private student/teacher facebook page?”

Learning to be proficient in Essential Feng Shui® requires real-time support and connection. Experience has taught us that the best way to learn and become confident is to feel the ongoing support and camaraderie of your teachers and classmates, and to know that your questions will be addressed in a timely manner. We have many students who tried to learn Feng Shui via other online programs that offer no live interaction and found it quite frustrating and ineffective.

“How much time should I plan to spend on the Essential Feng Shui Practitioner Training?” 

This Training is self-paced and comprised of over 50 hours of pre-recorded videos, plus weekly live one-hour coaching calls that are archived to enrich your learning process. The time you spend with your teachers and classmates on our private facebook page is completely up to you. These support systems are flexible enough to accommodate your schedule, time constraints, and family time.

“I’ve taken Feng Shui classes through another School. Do I have to attend the Essential Feng Shui Practitioner Training to become an Essential Feng Shui® Practitioner?”
