Feng Shui Workshop in Plainview, Long Island, New York

The first time I gave this workshop was only a few months ago.  I was pretty excited...and very nervous.  I STILL never would have thought or imagined that the very school that I learned Feng Shui from I would one day be TEACHING there.  I always think if I could have seen ahead to what would have happened in the Field of Feng Shui, I wouldn't have believed it anyway.

I wondered back then how many people even KNEW of Feng Shui....not many!  Calls were very few and far between.  Pure determination made me stick it out because I had seen it workThose days we were happy to be called for a Feng Shui Consultation for a HOME and I don't believe it occurred to ANY of us that down the road the calls for Feng Shui Consultations for Corporations and Businesses-and even New Construction would have become popular.

And here we are....to the "impossible."  When I went to the Metropolitan in Plainview, Long Island, New York for Feng Shui Studies it was then (and may still be) the first licensed and accredited school in the country for Feng Shui Studies.  And it was the very first graduating class who came from all parts of the United States to attend.

 Feng Shui Workshop--Metropolitan Institute of Interior Design

We used to joke during our Qi Gong exercise outside that we were standing in PLAIN VIEW.  On August 7th, I have been invited back to my alma mater to give another workshop for students.  And I hope that one will be followed by one for Realtors.  It isa thrill for me and an honor! 

Wish you could join us for a Fun Feng Shui Workshop on August 7th at 10am at the infamous Metropolitan Institute of Interior Design in Plainvew, Long Island, New York.

Those with an interest can call the school for details and directions at (516) 845-1300.

Tip and you can delete my comment if you want to after you read it: Remove the commas in your title, those are keywords. When you divide them with commas, you are telling the bots that each word is a keyword. You want to have them all together as one keyword, you can use hyphens. But it looks alright without commas, check my localism posts and see what I mean.

Carole - I wish I were there to attend this.  I have read all about Feng Shui but I am a hands-on pseron.  I need to actually see it and touch it to get it.  I totally wish I could be there - sounds like a great workshop.

Good morning Carole,
Was this the workshop you blogged about how nervous you were about speaking?  I remember that well.  Sheer determination and hard work can take us places we never expected to be able to go.  I think that is what happened with you.  Gosh, I'm proud of you.

HI Carole, your going back and teaching now rather than being a student reminds me of how far you have come with your craft. Congratulations. You are now the expert and all the newer to the industry need to learn from the master. It takes time but you have well earned your place. I think you are to be applauded for all your hard work.

hi Carole!
With your talent, intuition, knowledge, experience and education, you'd be the only one I'd want to learn feng shui from. Any chance of you coming to southern Ontario to do some workshops for REALTORs?

This is such a growing field and I believe all REALTORs would do well to take some courses, particularly from you!

What a thrill Carole! Feng Shui will be a household word and a form of it will be used someday soon by everyone because of your dedication. It is hard to believe that feng shui was introduced to the US just over 20 years ago...am I correct on that?

How exciting!  I so wish you were closer.  I was actually going to email you to see if I could interview about Feng Shui as it would relate to living on a lake...would that make sense?

Carole, how wonderful and exciting for you and I hope you are proud of yourself.  Anyone who can return to their alma mater as an instructor can count themselves as a resounding success!!

WooHoo to Carole!  You are the best teacher they all could have. We should have some kind of seminar here...that would be too cool.

Liz, I'm excited, it was just plain FUN the last time and I expect it to be again!

Katerina, I appreciate all the help I can get and thank you for it!  I had no idea a comma would break them up and I'll keep it in mind in future posts as well....Thank you!

Fred, That is so funny and it's also interesting that I got a contact from Canada about a distance consultation!  That's a first :)

Leesa, I am exactly the same way.  Having a consultant take you along on some Feng Shui Consultations is the BEST way (IMO) to really learn Feng Shui.  On occasion I have mentored students that way (with my client's permission) and it's wonderful to see them truly "get it."

Cynthia, I did that one and they recently booked another...and I'm thrilled.  I'm not at all nervous and thrilled to go back again.  And hoping to set one up for realtors, everyone enjoyed the class :)

Gary, I am really happy as well.  I have worked hard to get Feng Shui out there and demistify it---it will really take off in the years to come.

Jo, You're so sweet...of course I can come and sray with you :)  One day I will visit you and I'll give a workshop for anyone in your office that's interested.

Sheron, I believe it was the eary '80's that it came here.  The first I'd heard about it was 1996 and went to school that very year.  People from all over use one form or another so often already I can't imagine the next 20 years.

Joan, Thank you, they enjoyed the last one which is why I wa invited back.  And I've changed it a bit to keep it fresh....I can't wait.

Irene, Thank you so much.  I was fortunate to have been taught perseverence by my parents and sure hope I have passed it along to my children...nothing is impossible.

Diane, You're welcome to give me a call anytime to discuss it, it might make for an iteresting article--and thank you for thinking of me!

Lisa, Wow, a resounding success.... I love the way you have with words :)

Sally, I can't imagine how in tune most people there would be with it....that WOULD be fun (and I'd sure do some sightseeing while I was there!

Arina, I have never been there and it's on my list...but I think I'm going to want to be out enjoying every second of it :)!

Donna, I don't have written layouts to follow anymore.  I find I teach better when it's more casual and comfortable in a place.  Less structure and more fun that way as well.

Duane, I sure hope so....I am not at ALL nervous and that alone is wonderful!

Marzena, It's coming up fast....I've been busy lately so I need to get out and make up my packets of information!

Trace, Wouldn't that be fun?  I would sure love to have you!

Griselda, I wish so too....I think it would be so much fun to have some friends around :)
