Welcome! PLEASE NOTE, we're phasing out this website. Please visit the new website:


Have you ever thought that your life was going great, only to be stopped on your tracks by an unexpected event?

Many of us have experienced "being on a roll" and happily singing in our heads "nothing can stop me now" - only to later find that we have been blind-sided by events in life, that when seen in hind-sight, seem they could have been easily avoided. When this happened, maybe you felt like life was unjust.

It is a little like feeling you were sent into unknown territory without a map, or that you were asked to assemble a complicated machine without an instructions sheet. Shouldn't someone have handed you an instructions manual for life?

What if there was a blueprint for life? A map that could tell you all that you needed to take into account in order to build a happy life for yourself?

Hi! My name is Moni and I want to tell you that such a blue print exists, and has existed for thousands of years in the far East, but it only made it to our Western culture in the last 60 years, and in the United States it only started to be recognized in the 1980's!

Feng Shui, the Art of Space Arrangement, gives you this blueprint, and is based in the same ancient Chinese wisdom behind acupuncture and other Chinese healing arts. This is evidence-based knowledge that has been passed on from master to teacher for thousands of years.

BUT Why is it so confusing?

Most Feng Shui enthusiasts that have set out to learn Feng Shui on their own find themselves fascinated by the subject, but at the same time confused. What is infuriating about it, is that the more they study, the more confused they get.

The same thing happened to me. I was so frustrated because my experience prior to Feng Shui was that whenever I studied something more, I would gain more clarity about it, not more confusion!

For this reason I set out to take the confusion out of Feng Shui! The way I did this was by contrasting Feng Shui knowledge with knowledge from other branches of Traditional Chinese Medicine. (Feng Shui is one of these branches, and the others are Acupuncture, Herbalism, Massage and Chi-Kung/Tai-Chi.)

By doing this I was able to identify beliefs and practices that were not part of the original teachings and did not contribute to those original teachings, but instead created fear and superstitions. This is not all I did. I also looked at the Feng Shui knowledge from my perspective as a Western architect, so that people who follow my system could apply Feng Shui in a way that is pleasing to their senses and their taste.

I discovered that Feng Shui had become so confusing because over thousands of years knowledge that was not originally part of Feng Shui had been attached to it, coming from different cultures, that really did not mesh well with Feng Shui. Another reason is that a group of Chinese rulers encouraged the production of Feng Shui books containing errors and contradictions on purpose, so that people would become confused.

If you have been confused about Feng Shui, you are not alone. Most people have shared in this confusion at some time or another. However, now you have found a way to end that confusion and increase your knowledge of Feng Shui in a way that is empowering to you!

All of my students have told me they were frustrated and confused trying to learn Feng Shui on their own, but this is what they say once they have completed the courses:


I first learned about Moni when she was teaching Feng Shui classes for the Scott Community College Community Education program. After that first course I was hooked and took all that she offered.

Moni impressed me by being very knowledgeable, and the way the lessons were arranged made sense. It was easy to apply the principles to areas in the home that needed enhancements or corrections.

I had been interested in Feng Shui for a few years and had many books on the subject, but a lot of the information contradicted itself. When I took her classes it started to become much clearer and easier to understand and apply. I also noticed or could feel a strong spirituality about her!

After I took these classes, Feng Shui became almost second nature to me as I could spot errors or bad Feng Shui in my own environment and others.’

The most significant idea I applied was to balance the elements in all areas of my home ...then I addressed each area and made corrections or enhanced the area if needed depending on the problems. Usually as an area was corrected or enhanced that particular corresponding life situation improved. The most significant was enhancement of the Career area and a more satisfying job experience followed. Also balancing the elements in the entire home made for a more comfortable environment and people would remark about it.

When Moni created the online course she invited me to take it. I had enjoyed the live classes because they were more personal and interactive, but the online courses was a great review and answered many questions I had after the live classes. The content of the online course was more extensive I think because I learned things I did not learn in the live classes, but both were great.

I thoroughly enjoyed the classes live and online and Feng Shui is an integral part of my life as a result.

Dear Moni,

Thank you so much for offering your Nine Steps to Feng Shui® Online Course.

It is so much easier to learn about it and work on the things I have learned, one step at a time... I am so grateful that I found your site. You make it simple and easy to understand.

I like being able to review the prior videos as well.

Many Thanks,

Robin R., Montana


The content was very informative and easy to understand. I feel that I can go into a home or business and practice the 9 Steps System with ease and grace.

Moni was a great instructor, being a teacher myself I know the importance of conveying information in an effective way and not make the student feel "silly" for asking a question.

Moni answered all of my questions quickly and she made me feel excited about feng shui.

The videos were clear and detailed and were posted in a timely manner so that the course "flowed" and there weren't any interruptions because you could refer back to the manuals and charts that were included in the course.

I have previously read many books about feng shui but I was always confused about doing it as a profession because of the conflicting information out there.

Moni brings a fresh perspective that is both holistic and healing and she teaches it from a love paradigm which is absolutely awesome!

I loved the Nine Steps to Feng Shui® Online Course.

This program offers so many opportunities for a novice as well as anyone well read in the art of Feng Shui.

The course offers the viewer the opportunity to learn at your own pace. If you don't understand you can re-watch or Moni is always available and approachable with questions.

The best part of the Nine Steps to Feng Shui® Online Course is it advocates making small changers don't have to repaint your whole house!

One of the best things I learned is you can't just make changes for the bagua area but also take into account what the purpose of the room is.

You also get to learn from other people's challenges and that really helped in my understanding of Feng Shui.

While the Nine Steps to Feng Shui® Online Course makes small changes it also explains concepts that I never learned from other Feng Shui books or practitioners, so the small changes have a big impact.

I whole heartedly endorse the Nine Steps to Feng Shui® Online Course for anyone that wants to gain a greater understanding of a complex and fascinating art.

My name is María Feliza and I have known Monica since she lived in Ecuador. Several years after she left for the USA, I had the opportunity to attend a Feng Shui Seminar with her.

We have been in contact through internet & when I received the great offer of her online Feng Shui Course I did not doubt a second.

This online course gave me a mature, integrated & actual knowledge on Feng Shui. I have been able to ask her questions on the topics of the course applied to my home, and always received complete video online answers!! This is one of the fabulous benefits we have!!

I have applied the necessary suggestions & cures on my own home and everyone who visits me always say: "Wow, what a nice place, so welcoming, I feel SO well here!!!"

If I have made my own place a harmonious, peaceful, beautiful place to live in, it is thanks to you, to your knowledge & permanent hard work to share with all of us.

Thanks always dear Moni.

Feng Shui for Us™ is the easiest place for you to learn Feng Shui.

Feng Shui is the art of space arrangement, that teaches you "what to put where," and in what colors, shapes and materials, so that you can be more relaxed, have better relationships, and be more productive, all this while being Happy, Healthy, Prosperous and Free in each and every one of the Feng Shui Nine Life Areas.

Feng Shui reads the signs in the environment to find out what is going on in people's lives, and then suggests small changes that can be done in the space so that it resonates with the person's goals.


Good Feng Shui is like having a loving parent or caretaker, who constantly gives you positive feedback: "You are doing great, you are loved, keep going!"

Bad Feng Shui is like having a suppressive parent or caretaker that constantly puts you down: "You are a mess, you do nothing right, you will never succeed."

Which would you rather have? The Chinese have a saying: "Everything in your home is constantly talking to you – make sure they have nice things to say.

Our website has lots of resources for the Feng Shui enthusiast.

This is the site for YOU!
