Fairfield University offers popular six-session course in Feng Shui


University College at Fairfield University offers its second annual six-session Feng Shui course in the Interior Design Program. It will be held from Sept. 19 to Oct. 24 on Friday mornings from 9:30 a.m. to 12 Noon. This course is quickly gaining popularity and allows for numerous opportunities for those who are interested.

As an experienced designer and Feng Shui consultant, instructor Mary Moross lays a solid foundation of the history and evolutionary philosophy of this ancient Chinese practice. With the background she provides, students have the facility to understand and convey the logic of Feng Shui when using it as part of their work.

  • The layout of Bagua - A unique map or floor plan developed in China 2000 years ago. It describes and assigns energies to nine separate areas within the map. Each area can be activated to promote different life issues, which may include abundance, health, creativity, relationships, to name a few.
  • Feng Shui in the field - Experience a Feng Shui consultation as part of a class trip to help understand the positive effects first hand.
  • Create a harmonious living environment - Using color and a newfound understanding of the layout of the Bagua, placement of furnishings take on a new purpose that allows the interior designer to create a space that is most beneficial to the success and good health of a client.
  • Practical application of principles of Bagua - Analyze your own home or apartment floor plan based on the principles of the Bagua.

A graduate of Minneapolis College of Art and Design, Moross received a BFA from the University of Minnesota in Art History and Fine Arts. She holds a certification for Feng Shui from the Huazhong University in Wuhan, China and from the New England School of Feng Shui.  Moross ran her own design business for ten years during which time she designed rugs, floorcloths, window treatments, lamps, china and tabletop accessories. Her creativity and knowledge has helped enhance the lives of her many residential and commercial clients. Moross is a resident of Norwalk, Conn. and has taught Feng Shui in the greater New York area for more than eight years.
