The Mindful Design Certification Program
Our program is taught live and in real-time!
We offer our live and online feng shui certification program twice a year (Spring and Fall). Classes begin with an immersive foundational live, online weekend training. Students then continue to build their knowledge with our on-going case studies, live tutorials. You learn how to read the energy of a space through design details, color, and layout. Certification students then move into the deep dive, core feng shui of Level 2. Over eleven weeks students build on their knowledge of feng shui design details, and expanded exploration of core feng shui systems and principles. In our full Feng shui certification program students learn how to adjust, correct, and enhance using the nuanced and powerful transcendental side of Black Sect feng shui.
When you enroll in this certification course you will have access to both Level 1, Level 1 Tutorial sessions, and the full Level 2 course on our school platform.
This is program is for beginners as well as feng shui experts. No prior experience with feng shui is required.
" I love everything about the Feng Shui Mindful Design School! The content is uniformly organized, the platform is easy to navigate between live sessions and downloadable materials, and it’s the perfect combination of Feng Shui and mindfulness. The teachers are friendly, informative, and have a wealth of knowledge to share; most importantly, they ask for feedback and follow through. I have found this class to be a blessing, as a new mom still working her day job looking for a career transition.
At the beginning of the course, I was a little overwhelmed with all the information. I can remember the one class when Anjie & Laura were talking about the bagua from a business perspective. And that was when the whole bagua map lit up for me! My understanding before was more literal and then a light bulb went off. I could see the bagua and feng shui in different perspectives. Everything just fell into place... That’s when I felt I became a true feng shui practitioner.
Confidence was the biggest benefit I received from Mindful Design Program. There was a shift, and feng shui became more fluent for me. Confidence in the business sense, that I can do this and I understand feng shui so much better. Confidence in being comfortable of charging people valuing myself and my knowledge. I’ve been interested in feng shui for at least six years before the program. I read a couple of books on it, but through this course, I really have become fluent in feng shui. The Mindful Design program was the glue that put everything together and made feng shui make sense. And, I can proudly and confidently say “Yes, I am a feng shui consultant!"

"The number one transformation that I received from the Mindful Design program was my confidence to do consultations. The support from the teachers, the live format and the opportunities to interact with and ask the teachers questions during the entire program made the difference.
I was already a certified feng shui consultant but I really wanted to learn the true traditional BTB feng shui techniques. The BTB feng shui transcendental methods really resonate with me. I looked at many different schools, and this program was exactly what I was looking for. I knew there was more to it and not just moving your stuff around. I looked forward to our weekly classes and fell in love with feng shui even more! It really just goes so deep. I wouldn’t change a thing about the program! I just want to do more!"
Rose G, Mindful Design Feng Shui Certified Practitioner
"I would highly recommend Anjie & Laura’s Mindful Design Feng Shui School. It’s absolutely 100% worth the cost, and I want to keep learning even more! I’ve taken other programs, and I appreciated that this wasn’t a quick in and out over a weekend. This program brought me so much more information, knowledge and depth of understanding.
While I had a good foundation of classical & compass methods prior to, these ladies really floored me with their breadth and depth of BTB knowledge. Week after week, I was drawn in to know more about how Feng Shui can help people change their lives to live more authentically & in harmony with others and their environment. I’ve been fortunate to take advantage of their one-on-one mentoring calls which provided me with the practical tools, skills, and confidence to conduct my first consultation.
Since receiving my certification, I’ve really see changes beyond just being a feng shui consultant. I learned patience with the process and developed a deeper connection with my family. My qi, energy, has changed. I have a clear vision on what I want to do with my business. All these things in all areas of my life are coming together, and real tangible things are changing and really happening for me.
As for the teachers, each brings their own insight & professional expertise to further enhance your Feng Shui education and connect it to practical applications one may see in the field. If you are looking for a BTB Feng Shui Certification program Mindful Design Feng Shui School definitely should be at the top of your list!"

My background is in architecture and I knew very little about Feng Shui before entering the Mindful Design Program. Over the last few years I had been trying to bring more intention and mindfulness into all areas of my life but had never understood how that might translate into our personal and work spaces.
Wanting to learn how ancient wisdom and mindfulness applied to our modern day spaces, I decided to jump into the program to learn more! I didn’t have a clear vision for how I would integrate Feng Shui with my current profession, but I was so inspired by both Anjie and Laura’s integration of Feng Shui into their own businesses that I knew that the course would be a place for me to find my own path.
Within a few classes I had a big a-ha moment—happiness in your life and in your space starts with you. Mindful Design School gave me the confidence and the practical tools to start seeing immediate shifts in my own energy. Further, Anjie and Laura’s deep knowledge of Feng Shui combined with their thoughtful and intentional teaching approach created a wonderfully rich environment for both my personal and professional growth. In each class we learned both practical and transcendental tools that we could put into practice right away. Each week I was seeing shifts with both myself, my space and my family. By the end of the course, I had a profound understanding of the dynamic relationship between people and their spaces and the confidence to start my own consulting business.
Mindful Design School’s supportive and nurturing environment helped me make tremendous changes in my life…thank you Anjie & Laura!
