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 fascination with the psychology of place, spirituality, and the environment have been
lifelong. This is rooted in childhood, tracing through a BA in Geography and an extensive
study of psychology, through 8 years of training and mentorship with a number of
established Feng Shui masters in the UK and abroad. It has been a huge pleasure to build
my Feng Shui practice, and am now a UK accredited consultant and an active affiliate
member of the International Feng Shui Association. 

Although I am committed to classical Feng Shui - and highly wary of modern
interpretations, superstition and new age additions - I cultivate a creative, intuitive
approach to my work, with a sensibility for contemporary building and design practices. I supplement my classical training with part time studies and one off courses in areas such as regenerative architecture, garden design, culture, history and mythology.

I work in a diverse range of contexts - residential, commercial and retail - with private
clients or in collaboration with architects designers, and/or builders.
