My most important teacher and mentor is Joseph Yu. Master Yu was born in the People’s Republic of China, but immigrated to Hong Kong as a child. He is a mathematics and physics graduate who originally taught mathematics at the university of Hong Kong.
His Feng Shui studies started almost by accident when he decided to prove that Feng Shui and other Chinese metaphysical subjects were mere superstition.
He frequented Libraries, researching ancient texts. As Joseph studied the ancient texts in order to find fault with old practices like astrology and Feng Shui, he was impressed by the rich heritage of Chinese culture and the way it could provide people means to improve their quality of life. As luck would have it, he had as his neighbour an old Feng Shui Master with whom he engaged in lively debates about the art, the principles, and the methods of Feng Shui. Thus he had a chance to receive thorough personal education.
Joseph has over 30 years of experience in Chinese metaphysics. He practices and teaches Feng Shui, Bazi (Four Pillars Astrology), Zi Wei Dou Shu (Purple Star Astrology), and Yijing (I Ching) analysis. In addition to writing 14 mathematics text books, Joseph has co-authored with Elizabeth Moran “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to I-Ching” and “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Feng Shui”, co-authored with Val Biktashev
Master Raymond Lo
Master Raymond Lo is a secondary, however, influential teacher. I have completed Feng Shui Modules 1 and 2 with Master Lo and am a member of his on-line community.
Raymond Lo, also popularly known as “Feng Shui Lo”, is a professional Feng Shui researcher and practitioner. His expertise also covers the Four Pillars of Destiny and the prediction of the I Ching Oracle.
Having graduated with a degree in Social Sciences from the University of Hong Kong, Mr Lo’s interest in Feng Shui led him to seriously study the ancient art. He used his skill to write a popular Feng Shui column in the Hong Kong Standard between 1988 and 1991. In this Column he made several forecasts about world events, including the outbreak and the result of the Gulf War, the fall of Mr. Gorbechev and Mrs Thatcher’s resignation, all of which have later proved to be accurate.
Mr Lo is the author of a Feng Shui titles in both English and Chinese. He frequently contributes his Feng Shui knowledge to various media publications. In 1990 he made a live appearance on the popular BBC program “Whicker’s World”. In 1994, he also introduced Feng Shui to American audiences in the ABC program “Good Morning America”. In 1996, Mr Lo was interviewed by TV stations of many countries including Singapore, Malaysia, Australia, Switzerland, Germany and Poland.
He is also a Feng Shui lecturer at the School of Professional and Continual Education, the University of Hong Kong, and is the consultant to the Hong Kong Tourist Association for their annual Health and Fortune Expo and Feng Shui Tour.
Master Peter Yu
Peter Yu ignited my passion for Feng Shui and became my first teacher. He set a test for me before he agreed to teach me the “Chinese Secret.” For 3 years Sifu and I spent hours every week walking through the streets of Sydney’s Chinatown. Peter taught me to examine the flow of people and qi in the environment and to identify “Sha qi” and “poison arrows” (disharmonious structures).
Peter Yu is the principal of the Hung Ging Tai Chi Academy. He is a Tai Qi Master with 47 years experience in Martial arts. Although not a Feng Shui master himself he studied with his Uncle in Hong Kong, who is a Feng Shui master. Although unable to teach me the advanced compass techniques he gave me a solid grounding in the basics. This period laid the foundation for my future studies.
