Experiential learning and real-life consultations
Included with this program: students will audit and attend 8 live feng shui consultations by Laura and Anjie with actual clients. In these consultations students will see how the feng shui material they are learning is applied in real-life client situations. Students observe first-hand how feng shui practitioners co-create, guide and hold space for clients who are looking to improve the energy in their homes and lives.
Conduct two client consultations: students must complete two client consultations in order to complete their certification. The teachers will guide students as they prepare; this ensures that students feel confident and empowered when they meet one-on-one with their first feng shui clients.
Your feng shui project: a fun and engaging part of the program, the feng shui project is a short presentation given by the student to their teachers and cohort. The objective of this ten-minute presentation is for students to explore an aspect of feng shui more deeply, as well as allowing students to practice their presentation skills in a safe and excepting environment.
Connecting with your cohort and community
When you join the Mindful Design certification program you also become part of a bigger community. To foster this, students are placed in smaller breakout groups where they meet weekly to review and discuss the material they are learning. These small study groups allow students to connect further with their fellow classmates and cohort.
Post-graduate & Business Buiding support
Anjie and Laura are committed to supporting their students after they graduate. Once students have completed the certification, they are invited to be highlighted on our Mindful Design consultants page. For grads who are focused on building their businesses, we have a variety of resources to help promote them. Here are some examples of how we have promoted our students:
- a guest blogger on Mindful Design Feng Shui blog

Students also are invited to join Laura and Anjie’s weekly mentoring and mastermind group Mindful Design’s Collaboration Community. This weekly class is exclusively for Mindful Design students and alumni.

“This is one of the only online courses I’ve stuck with all the way to the end. It’s not just a collection of content to consume like a lot of programs are—it’s truly a mentorship. Anjie and Laura have so much knowledge to share, and they really encouraged us to tap into our own experiences of feng shui and cultivate our own wisdom. I deeply appreciated the opportunity to have a personal connection with my teachers as well as the other students. The format of this course allowed me to really absorb the material, so that now I can’t help but connect every other practice and aspect of my life back to feng shui!”
