LifeHouse is a platform for the research and contemporary application of the classical Chinese life arts.   Run by me, Ryan Terren, it operates as a Feng Shui consultancy, Ba Zi Life Analysis practice and Qi Gong School.

Thank you for visiting the LifeHouse website.

The Chinese wisdom traditions are astonishingly effective in giving us tangible understandings of phenomena that usually lie at the furthest margins of our awareness. I am interested in how these tools can be used to equip people, businesses and organisations to fulfil the precious opportunities granted to us, and to steer us towards more creative solutions and practices.

My background includes a BA in Geography from University College London, followed by a successful 15-year career as an actor, maker and teacher in theatre and film. During this time, I became fascinated with the source of creative expression and pursued inner work through depth psychology, meditation, and the Eastern arts. In 2015, I began training intensively in internal arts with Lotus Nei Gong International and completed a three-year Qi Gong teacher certification in 2019. Alongside my internal arts training, I became intrigued by Feng Shui, which connects my interests in geography, psychology, and spirituality. I completed an intensive one and a half year course in Ba Zi and Feng Shui with Richard Ashworth of the Imperial Feng Shui School, and continue to be mentored by him. I also regularly train with other renowned masters in the field such as Grandmaster Dr Stephen Skinner and Madam Lily Chung. I am an accredited consultant with the Feng Shui Society and an active affiliate member of the IFSA London Chapter. I am currently also training in regenerative architectural practice, ecological design and forest garden design through Ecodemia, Dartington Trust and the Agroforestry Research Trust. 

I work with clients worldwide on both residential and commercial projects. I work with home and business owners directly as well as collaborating with established architects and interior designers. It is a huge pleasure to work with such a powerful and ancient tradition on a regular basis and make a positive impact on the lives of those who consult me. Thank you for your interest in LifeHouse, and I look forward to working with you.
