A note from Katherine Metz
about Pure Professor: Journey to Mastery
"From theory to practical use, we will explore the gifts given to us by H. H. Grandmaster Professor Lin Yun. His teachings are now complete. Yet, like the sun and the moon, they continue to nourish us - never to be diminished. 
Your participation will tap you into the endless source of light and energy as it flows through all those who listen well. 
Please join us for these special teachings. To gather together is our greatest gift."
-- Katherine Metz
Pure Professor is for experienced feng shui practitioners who would like to deepen their knowledge of Black Sect feng shui. In this program you will gain access to Katherine’s exclusive archive of Professor’s teachings, as well as her 40 years of experience.
Each module is a robust and carefully curated collection of documents, audio and video files that tells a feng shui story. 

Each month Katherine Metz and Anjie Cho will co-teach with two live calls to discuss the material, ask questions and review each module. 
With Katherine and Anjie’s guidance, Pure Professor will guide practitioners to develop their craft and sharpen their skills with the knowledge that the information comes directly from our Black Sect lineage and our master H.H. Grandmaster Professor Lin Yun. 

This advanced BTB feng shui program is recommended for:
  • Any Mindful Design School program graduate
  • Experienced Black Sect feng shui (BTB) practitioners
  • Graduates of a comparable feng shui program

Note: This program is NOT RECOMMENDED for newbies, beginners, or non-BTB practitioners.

This is not a certification program, and does not offer training on how to offer feng shui consultations.

Without prior BTB feng shui training, you will not have the background knowledge and experience to understand the material.
