Vanessa Boren

Expert Feng Shui

Vanessa Boren, Consultant, considers this statement to be the basic principle of Feng Shui – The true art of creating living space, an age-old wisdom which has its origins in Taoist philosophy. 

At certain stages in our lives, we can feel hemmed in, blocked, and know we need to make changes. Such transformations can take form in our homes. Feng Shui teaches us how to rearrange and organize our living space in tune with our aspirations, our desires.

Originally from California and Mexico, after a career as a Fashion Editor in New York and Paris, Vanessa went on a retreat in 1998 to Thich Nhat Hahn's Plum Village in France where she spent a year fostering a true connection to the natural world. After exposure to Feng Shui she embarked on an extensive training program, Vanessa became a Feng Shui Expert in 2000.

She also followed Interior Design classes at the famed Ecole Boulle in Paris. She opened the boutique La Maison Feng Shui in Paris in 2004, and then started the Feng Shui Design School, the first in France to integrate Feng Shui into Interior Design. Vanessa currently resides outside Paris and consults and teaches throughout Europe.

What I offer

Vanessa's goal is to provide practical tips to help you build a home that looks and feels like you and that brings supportive energy into your home, life, work, family and relationships.

First meeting at your home 
  • Exchange ideas about your existing or potential future projects, define your needs and your approach
  • Study and make first observations of the life energy in your living space both interior and exterior environment
  • Study and make first observations of the life energy in your living space both interior and exterior environment. Obtain your current architectural drawings/plans/room measurements and the dates of birth for you and your family members
  • Determination of the orientations of the cardinal points, study of the geobiology of the bedrooms
