Richard Carpenter

Richard CarpenterRichard first learned about Feng Shui from his father who was very interested in the art and architecture of traditional Japan; as opportunity to study and observe presented itself while participating in reconstruction in the post war period. As a youth, Richard remembered his father telling him stories about a thing called Fuu-Sui (Japanese for Feng shui) and he should learn about it. Over the years, he read all the English translations on the subject he could find. In 1995, while searching for more knowledge, he began his study in Feng Shui under the guidance of Master Sang.

Over the past 14 years, Mr. Carpenter has applied nearly every Feng Shui technique Master Sang has taught either on himself or to those close by so that he could observe the feedback. In nearly every instance, a measurable change was noticed.

As a practitioner of Feng Shui, his philosophy is: “If you use Feng Shui to help yourself or others to improve your life and it works, you’ve gained everything; if nothing happens then you’ve lost nothing! So study hard and find out for yourself the power of this ancient knowledge.”

Mr. Carpenter uses his knowledge of Feng Shui and Zi Wei Dou Shu Chinese Astrology to help his clients achieve their potential and surpass it.
