Welcome to LifeHouse [命宮]

My name is Ryan Terren, and I set up LifeHouse as a platform for the research and contemporary application of the classical Chinese wisdom arts, such as Feng Shui and ancient Chinese Astrology.

I offer a range of services, including traditional Feng Shui consultations, personal Ba Zi  and Yi Ching readings, Qi Gong retreats, and professional collaborations. 

相 Feng Shui 

Feng Shui is the ancient Chinese art of integrating people with place, with the present time. The contemporary application of these powerful classical techniques can improve our wellbeing and transform our spaces. 

I practice and advocate for traditional, embodied Feng Shui - including ancient techniques such as Qi Gong, meditation and hand-drafting. Although all my work is rooted in classical Chinese cosmology, I cultivate a creative, flexible approach;  with a sensibility for modern, regenerative design practices.

I highly recommend Feng Shui surveys with Ryan. Earlier this year, even though I enjoy where I live, I was feeling very stagnant in my home and wanted to move to a new space. I decided to first have a reading to see if it would help. It did, immensely! After implementing Ryan's suggestions, I have a renewed appreciation for my home, and some significant health and physical changes have happened"

My recent Feng Shui consultation with Ryan was a thoroughly enjoyable and thought-provoking experience.  He wears his knowledge lightly; never trying to impress you with technicalities, explaining everything in a clear and simple way.  You are however, left in no doubt about his mastery of his subject.

Many thanks for doing the Feng shui assessment.  i very much enjoyed the consultation, and the report is proving very helpful especially as I work with the architects to put the plans together.

"Ryan’s background in both BaZi and Feng Shui is both deep and incredibly broad. His analytical work felt fully embodied and considered, and totally trustworthy. Even poetic. Ryan is generous and friendly and funny, and it made the time working together feel more like a collaboration, and always very comfortable. In the end he sent me a beautiful 36-page document to refer to and reflect upon, much of it hand drawn, as well as many meaningful suggestions for things I can do to continue to improve the energetics here and in my life. I totally recommend Ryan, whether for BaZi or Feng Shui. But if you can swing it, do both!"

Working with Ryan through a BaZi reading was a holistic, practical, and illuminating experience. He clearly puts a lot of thought and care into each reading, and there is so much depth to the information that I will be exploring and unpacking my reading for months to come. It was not only confirming of how I innately want to structure my life and my priorities, but also showed areas I could harmonize through acceptance and lifestyle changes. I'm looking forward to more of Ryan's wisdom for support in looking at future elemental influences as well as Feng Shui calculations for living harmoniously.

"I can highly recommend Ryan‘s BaZi Readings. He explained all very well and in great detail, which makes it easy to understand and follow for the people not so familiar with the topic. I’ve been very impressed with the accuracy of what he can conclude from your date of birth. Really fascinating. Don’t hesitate to contact him!"

Would highly recommend Ryan's Bazi readings. Extremely thorough and in depth insight into your birth chart and life with striking accuracy to real life events, often uncanny. Very knowledgable. Really helpful tips on how to manage the more challenging aspects that come up. Hands on and practical too. Thanks Ryan!

命 Ba Zi Astrology

Ba Zi  is a centuries-old astrology practice that analyses our inner nature and the unfolding of our life path. It brings an enriched awareness of ourselves and can provide practical strategies for aligning our intentions with our deeper purpose.

I create in-depth, hand-drafted charts for each reading, which can be explored either through a one-off reading or an ongoing package of sessions.

 BaZi is a precious tool that Ryan unfolded, interpreted and delivered with knowledge and sensitivity. We discussed my traits, strengths, weaknesses, my supporting elements and my limiting ones, the events from the past and the seeds for the future - plus many more illuminating aspects that are going to support the coming steps. Thank you Ryan!

Patrizia Gaio

Ryan prepared an amazing BaZi reading that continues to help me make sense of some life issues and pesky energies that have popped up these past years – stuff both in the outer world but also in my inner life. Right away it helped me make sense of past events but also is pointing toward new or un-lived potentials. The reading was so inspiring that I went ahead and asked Ryan to do the Feng Shui on my small farm as well. Even though I live in the USA, Ryan was still able to do a thorough analysis of my house and the surrounding landscape, uncovering the causes of sensations and experiences that have bothered me since day one.

Insight卜 

Pu, insight or divination, encompasses wisdom arts such as the Yi Ching and Qi Men Dun Jia, that are concerned with exploring the subtler energetic phenomena that sit behind our experience of everyday life. It is an astonishingly powerful practice, often used to help with significant decisions, create life strategies or to get clarity on a particular situation. It can also be used as aid to self-cultivation,  and the internal arts.

Ryan's divination session gave me a lot of clarity on the many facets of a significant and complicated decision that I need to make. Ryan makes you feel comfortable immediately and is an attentive and empathetic listener. He combines a warm and caring presence with finely nuanced insights that help ease the anxiety associated with major life changes.
