How to choose a Feng Shui school?
It can be difficult to tell which is a better Feng Shui School to learn from, who will be a good Feng Shui teacher to study under. To help clear your uncertainties and make a smart choice, below are the frequent questions which many has asked.
How do I start learning Feng Shui?
You must first select a school that imparts true and authentic Feng Shui knowledge.
You need an experienced teacher with the right knowledge and with an established track record.
You should focus on having a solid foundation before you further your studies into more advanced knowledge.
How can I know the Feng Shui I’d learn is authentic?
The heritage of the Master is of extreme importance.
There must be evidence of knowledge passed down through a direct lineage of highly regarded masters.
The school must be able to prove that the knowledge is being supported by real life case studies that are properly recorded.
The school must be able to demonstrate deep knowledge of all the rings in the Luo Pan (Feng Shui compass) and the knowledge must coincide with the Luo Pan.
Why is it that I can’t see the results after implementing the Feng Shui remedies, even though I have waited years for it?
For Feng Shui remedies to work, an auspicious time must be selected for the implementation of these remedies
Without the right time, the results may be neutral at best, or even bring misfortune.
If you are using the San Yuan system of Feng Shui, you need to use the San Yuan system of Date Selection.
Can I mix up the theories of the different schools of Feng Shui?
You should not.
For example, the San He Ba Zhai (Eight Mansion) knowledge is based on the theory of the East/West group – four auspicious and four inauspicious directions and no time dimension incorporated. Each sector makes up 45 degrees.
In the San Yuan school, time and space are included in its analysis. Things change with the passage of time and this makes the analysis of the San Yuan school more accurate. Furthermore, a higher degree of accuracy is achieved as the San Yuan compass is divided into 5.625 degrees in Xuan Kong Da Gua sectors.
Why should I choose Classic Feng Shui Mastery?
At Classic Feng Shui Mastery, we are able to demonstrate a direct lineage descending from the original founder of the T’an School of San Yuan Feng Shui.
You’ll be imparted the secret Xuan Kong theory of Tan’s School of San Yuan Feng Shui that comes under the famous Wu Chang Sect Geomancy which originates in Wuxi, Jiangsu China.
How are Classic Feng Shui Mastery (CFSM) courses different from other feng shui courses? I have already attended courses from other schools. I may end up learning nothing new and wasting my time?
Most of our students from CFSM are in fact not beginners. Prior to taking our courses, they have already studied Feng Shui elsewhere.
But why do they choose to join us? From common feedback, most actually did further self-study and research on Feng Shui practices and found CFSM to be able to provide them with the correct path of Feng Shui learning.
Now that you are actually asking this question, I believe you are sharing the same thought as many of our students. When in doubts always ask, that is the correct way. Wise man accepts their mistake rather than finding excuses and continue on their mistakes.
To be just older and longer in practice doesn’t make one a good Feng Shui master. It’s about one’s spirit and willingness to learn and explore and find for himself the correct answer.
Most of the course contents may look similar compared to other school. However, they’re very much different. The key lies in the underlying principles of the Feng Shui applications. Do you truly understand the rationale behind them or are you just applying blindly? Remember. In Feng Shui, there is a never a one-fit-all solution.
Among the many schools of Feng Shui, why should I choose T’an School of San Yuan Feng Shui?
In order for Feng Shui implementations to work and to derive the maximum benefits, the day and time aspects must be incorporated. San Yuan Feng Shui has detailed methods( Xuan Kong Da Gua Date Selection) to choose auspicious dates and times to make Feng Shui implementations work. This makes San Yuan Xuan Kong Feng Shui different from other schools.
Besides, the T’an School is the only school in the world with a well preserved track record of the work performed and all the real life case studies done by the former Masters right up to the original founder, Great Grandmaster T’an Yang Wu. The case studies contain real names, places, date and time of inspection and remedies and their results thereafter.

I wish to begin by expressing my heartfelt gratitude to my late Master, the Reverend Sui Beng, for bequeathing to me his profound knowledge of San Yuan Feng Shui; and to the late Grandmaster T’an Yang Wu for his teachings as recorded in the last two copies of his invaluable publication, ‘T’an’s San Yuan Xuan Kong Feng Shui’. Not forgetting the late Master Yen Pen with his three precious books on ‘Theory and Case Studies on Yin and Yang Feng Shui’.
Following in their footsteps, I believe it is my responsibility in turn to pass down the accumulated knowledge on San Yuan Feng Shui, as its loss will be a sacrilege to mankind.
Throughout my years of teaching, I have passed this knowledge of San Yuan Feng Shui to over a thousand students. Besides benefiting themselves, some have gone on to benefit others in teaching and consultation work. Nevertheless, I feel my method of teaching is slow and restricted to a limited circle, mostly people educated in Chinese.
Due to the tight schedule of my teaching and consultation work, I have been unable to teach more advance subjects. To overcome these shortcomings, I have now teamed up with some of my ex-students, who are professionals in their own fields, to establish the Central Academy of Feng Shui (CAFS), in order to make possible the spreading of this beneficial knowledge to the world at a much faster pace.
Students who have attended courses at the CAFS and have passed certain levels will be able to ‘read’ the Feng Shui of houses. They will be able to comment or give ‘specific’ advice, indicating for instance, the person(s) affected in that household, the likely part of the body affected, the probable month of the occurrence and etc.
This may sound strange or unbelievable, but if the theory and its practical applications are understood, ‘everything in this universe seems calculable, depending on one’s knowledge and skills.’
An example of this statement is that ancient people did not believe in the existence of germs in the environment as they could not see them with their naked eyes, until science came along and proved it with the ‘magical’ microscope. With the CAFS, a Research Section has been set up, which I believe will one day also substantiate and provide creditability to the tenets of San Yuan Feng Shui with another ‘magical’ microscope.
Many people are ignorant of the importance of our surroundings with respect to our well-being. They do not realize that our breathing, continuous throughout the 24 hours of a day, is keeping us alive. What more then do they know about the life-long interaction of our body with the energy of our environment. When we ponder over this, we begin to be amazed at the wonders of nature.
Why does a slight change in climatic conditions increase the number of sick people? The answer has to do with our body’s interaction with the energy of the environment and it is this ‘energy’, also known as ‘Qi’ (Chi) in Chinese, to which Feng Shui is linked. This energy permeates the air as well as the earth of our world, similar perhaps to electromagnetic waves. No magic, no superstition and no religion! This energy or Qi as we call it, affects all living things, and mankind of all races and religions cannot live without its omnipotent influence.
In Feng Shui, Qi is categorized into Heaven’s Qi, Earth’s (Environmental) Qi and Man’s Qi. Understanding the importance of Qi in Feng Shui enables us to concentrate on major issues rather that on irrelevant remedies. For instance, the placing of an octagonal (Ba Gua) mirror at the front door of a house will not be able to counter Nature’s mighty Qi. To hope that this puny mirror will improve a house’s Feng Shui, reveals a lack of understanding of the colossal power of the Nature’s Qi or its presence.
To create a situation, a combination or ‘synergy’ of different Qi is required to occur together. This interaction of two or more different Qi occurring together produces an effect. A single Qi by itself remains dormant. As an analogy, water is produced from the synergistic action of hydrogen and oxygen atoms, which on their own do no result in any reaction.
In conclusion, I would advise that this opportunity to learn the invaluable knowledge of San Yuan Feng Shui should not be missed, as it will bring a lifetime of benefit. Together we can enrich the world and the coming generations Grandmaster Francis Leyau
