This excellent article by GM Dr. Stephen Skinner in Feng Shui Today investigates this much neglected school of Feng Shui.
One of the first feng shui methods that most Westerners learn when coming to it for the first time is the Eight Mansions formula. However after they learn Flying Star feng shui, they soon discard Eight Mansions, because of apparent (but not real) conflicts between the two systems. But there is a lot of useful formulae associated with Eight Mansion, and they will have done the equivalent of “throwing the baby out with the bath water.”
I agree that the IFSA UK Chapter has no responsibility for the actions or advice provided by feng shui consultants or teachers listed on this website. Any dispute is solely between the IFSA UK Chapter member and the client.
We aim for the highest standards, but if you feel the service you received has not met those in the IFSA UK Chapters code of ethics, we may censure or remove that member. This is the fullest extent of the IFSA UK Chapter’s ability to intervene in any dispute with a client.
We always recommend you ask for evidence of insurance, experience, and accreditation when booking a consultation or course. It is the responsibility of the consultant/teacher and you to agree on what fees, services, and support are provided.
