About the Emerald Feng Shui Institute
The Emerald Feng Shui Institute, a professional Feng Shui School, was founded in 2004 on the West Coast, in beautiful Seattle, WA. Our mission is to advance the art of Feng Shui as a way of life, bringing empowerment to the people through sharing and cultivating Feng Shui as a mode of designing and living at all levels. The EFSI’s goal is to reach out and work with you in the creation of holistic living environments for the benefit of you, the individual, your family, your community and the environment. The Emerald Feng Shui Institute’s mission is to open you to broader perspectives in your life, – just like the precious stone Emerald does.
All seminars, workshops, professional training and personal mentoring offered by the Emerald Feng Shui Institute provide you, the student, with tools, techniques and resources that strengthen your intuitive skills and connect you to both your inner and outer environments. Our comprehensive approach is deep-reaching, bringing about lasting change and transformation in your home and business while enabling you to live an overall richer life, making better-informed choices inspired by the heart and your true nature.
We at the Emerald Feng Shui Institute believe that Feng Shui should be an integral part in the creation of every home, and in the design process of every building project, thereby creating healthy, balanced homes, prosperous businesses and ultimately healthy and vibrant communities.
The Intuitive Practice of Feng Shui
The art and science of Feng Shui is deep-reaching and multi-layered. Rooted in the ancient wisdom of the I Ching, Feng Shui is not merely an art of moving furniture and re-arranging physical spaces. Feng Shui is about aligning your environments, the inner and outer ones, with the prevailing universal forces at work. The intuitive practice of Feng Shui is specifically reinforced by sensing the energy flow, or “flow of chi”. It is enhanced by the practitioner’s intuition, the ability of reading and interpreting the environment, and of tuning in. Relating the environment’s flow of chi with the individual person’s chi is an important component; so is correlating the individual’s astrology, its characteristics and elements, to the prevailing currents and elements of the land.
Feng Shui Training explores ancient principles as they evolved over centuries and applies them to modern-day situations. At the same time it taps into your intuitive knowledge within and activates your dormant natural creativity. Your path will unfold to its full potential in every space and at every moment of your life. All the tools you need are given to you in the 7-Day Feng Shui Intensive.

Advanced Feng Shui And Guest Speaker Programs

We offer subjects such as Feng Shui Design for Home and Office Spaces, I Ching, Feng Shui Astrology, Qi Cultivation With Sheng Zhen Qigong, and others.

About the Founder And Director
Gisela Stehr holds an MA in Architecture and practiced architecture for over ten years, designing residences, schools, offices and medical facilities. In the early nineties the focus of her work shifted to the art and science of Feng Shui. She studied this ancient art in China, (participating in the first International Feng Shui Study Tour) Japan, and Bali with some of the world’s best-known masters including William Spear, Roger Green, Denise Lynn, Joseph Yu, and R.D. Chin among others. Ms Stehr is one of a select few people worldwide who completed the rigorous 3-1/2-year Professional Certification Training in Intuitive Feng Shui® with William Spear. She also took practitioner’s space clearing training with Karen Kingston, and several intensive dowsing courses with Eric Dowsett in personal clearing and clearing of harmful earth energies.
In 1996 Ms Stehr started the Feng Shui Consulting Firm Cre8tive Feng Shui of which she has since been the principal. The focus of all her work is on healthy, prosperous living, respecting the environment and harmonizing the energetics of people, places and sites. A consultation with Ms Stehr will transform your home and work environments into vital and inspiring spaces that support you in your most cherished aspirations. She uniquely combines her architectural design skills with her ability to intuitively sense and evaluate energy flow and spatial qualities, always with the utmost respect and integrity for her clients’s concerns. Ancient Feng Shui principles are harmoniously woven into individual living styles.
In 2004 Gisela Stehr made a long-time dream of hers a reality with the founding of the Emerald Feng Shui Institute, now qualified and acknowleged as a Gold Member Feng Shui School by the International Feng Shui Guild. After having taught Feng Shui and related subjects for many years at diverse public and private institutions including the American Institute of Architects, The Eco Building Guild, the University of Washington Women’s Center, the Northwest Institute of Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine, Mercer Island Community Center and many others, the ever-growing demand and her passion for teaching compelled Ms Stehr to open her Feng Shui School, thereby making this invaluable life skill available to the general public.
An active Red Ribbon Professional Member of the International Feng Shui Guild since 1998, Ms Stehr served for several years on the IFSG Education Committee and assisted in setting standards for the training of professional Feng Shui Consultants. The programs at the Emerald Feng Shui Institute have been developed over several years of teaching and lecturing. The content is of highest quality, exploring the deep interconnectedness of universal principles as they play out in nature and in human affairs.
