Toyota’s Woven City will explore human interaction in urban spaces, study smart city infrastructure and driverless cars. This sensor-laden metropolis, a 175-acre high-tech city – built from the ground up, at the bottom of Mount Fuji in Japan will be ready in 2021. As you can see from the video below, it has good flowing lines, plenty of nature, clean air and clean water – all feng shui compliant. And the grid is based on the bagua model.
Toyota’s Woven City
At the consumer electronics fair CES 2020, Akio Toyoda, Toyota’s CEO, announced a plan to build an intelligent city at the foot of Mount Fuji (watch the video below). The Woven City will contain all the technologies of the future: autonomous cars, robots, the latest electronic devices, intelligent equipment in apartments and an innovative communication system, consisting of roadways for vehicles, routes for bicycles and electric scooters and separate pedestrian paths.
Feng shui of a city is told by its people, buildings and landmarks and Edinburgh has a lot tell and show from Edinburgh Castle to the Scottish Parliament to the medieval settlement to a masterpiece in Georgian architecture and town planning as well as ‘Scottish feng shui’. Let’s evaluate.
Feng shui of Edinburgh
As usual, I started at the Edinburgh castle which is sitting atop an extinct volcano, to witness the best panoramic view of the city. The castle, which also houses Edinburgh’s oldest standing building, St Margaret’s Chapel, built in 1130 by King David I, has witnessed many Scotland’s tumultuous episodes of its history. And now over a million annual visitors can appreciate the views.
There have been many rumours about 10 Downing Street, probably the most famous address in London. It is not true that Cherie Blair had Downing Street feng shui-ed, for example. Although Donald Trump used feng shui in his business, it’s not clear if he feng shui-ed the Oval Office or White house.
Is feng shui of 10 Downing Street working?
This is a good question. In short, judging after the last two years, not really. But with a new PM, things might change… for better or worse. Hopefully, for better. Let’s not be ‘doubters, doomsters and gloomsters’. The door of 10 Downing Street is facing south, which from feng shui perspective is the direction for success, reputation, clarity, spiritual outlook, illumination, enlightenment, positivity and fame. Well, all those attributes will be at stake when Boris Johnson make it his home. Mr Johnson’s feng shui star is 9 and element of fire (born 19 June 1964) and south is his lucky, auspicious direction. So far, so good.
Feng shui of 10 Downing Street
The shape of the Cabinet Table – coffin-like
Boris Johnson and his ministers will gather around the coffin-shaped cabinet table and decide on the future of Brexit and the UK. Boris Johnson has written a book about Winston Churchill and his very familiar with the famous saying of Winston Churchill, “We shape our buildings, thereafter they shape us.” Boris Johnson is fond of Churchill and Churchill was fond of this saying.
Feng shui is applicable to any living setting whether it is home, workplace. a yacht or any type of housing, including bankers and underground shelters. In the times of radical uncertainty, people who are worried about the end of the world and have plenty of money to spare are investing in luxury doomsday bunkers. The bunkers are complete for every possible scenario to keep people alive for years to come – with wine cellars, hydroponic farms, shooting range, the gym, the classroom, the rock-claiming wall, the art gallery, the cinema, the 75ft swimming pool and even casinos. Watch the video below about Larry Hall’s The Survival Condo in Kansas. But Larry Hall is not the only developer cashing on the trend. A Californian company, Vivos, has purchased a Cold War bunker in a hill in Thuringia, Germany and also repurposing a former US army munitions store in the Black Hills of South Dakota. The trend among preppers/survivalists for bunkers and underground shelters is visible in other countries too.
Feng shui, wind-water for bunkers
As the name suggests, in feng shui, air and water are the most important elements and these are also for any bunker or underground shelter. Super fresh, ionised air and pure water can be easily produced with the right air and water filters.
Full-spectrum natural lighting is key for a long time underground.
Reduced electro-smog and geopathic stress
Staying in one place that has high levels of geopathic stress and electro-smog, without means of escaping should be the top priority for any bunker or underground shelter.
Environmental psychology for your emotional, mental and spiritual needs
Once all the basic physical needs are met, our homes need to nourish our souls as well. As an environmental psychologist, I specialise in full optimisation of any dwelling for emotional, mental and spiritual needs.
Watch this video about this 90 feet into the Earth, luxury doomsday bunker (based in Kansas, 2-hour drive north of Wichita, called The Survival Condo) which was designed by the developer Larry Hall (Engineer and Software Developer) to sustain life for up to five years. They thought about almost everything there, including the living room’s faux views.

Feng shui of Madrid
Madrid, Spain’s golden capital, is a city of beautiful boulevards and open, well-manicured parks such as the Buen Retiro. It’s famous for its rich treasuries of European art, including the Prado Museum’s works by Goya, Velázquez and other Spanish masters. Madrid is in the centre of Spain and the feng shui heart of Madrid is the portico-lined Plaza Mayor, and nearby is the baroque Royal Palace and Armory. Other important plazas are Gran Via, Plaza de la Cruz Verde and Plaza de Oriente. Madrid is also the largest city in Spain before Barcelona. Let’s examine how feng shui of Madrid compares to Barcelona and other Spanish cities.
My interest in feng shui of Zurich stems from general feng shui of Switzerland. Switzerland is nicely surrounded by mountains which makes it a perfect feng shui location. Mountains, water, clear air and obsession with time, what else one would wish for a feng shui landscape.
Feng shui of Zurich Switzerland
Switzerland’s largest city, Zurich is famous for milk chocolate, velcro, vegetable stock cube, Dada and fondue (invented here 390 years ago).
Green Bank, a four-hour drive from Washington DC, is a census-designated place in Pocahontas County in West Virginia’s Potomac Highlands inside the Allegheny Mountain Range. Green Bank is located along WV 28 and is home to the Green Bank Observatory and the Green Bank Telescope which is used by astronomers to listen to galaxies in the outer space.
Green Bank, the National Radio Quiet Zone = no electromagnetic radiation
Green Bank is famous because it is located within the National Radio Quiet Zone, which means that radio transmissions are restricted by law to facilitate scientific research and military intelligence. This simple town, with a population of 143, has no phone, no radio signal, and hardly any wifi. Therefore, many (about 40) people who suffer from electromagnetic hypersensitivity, come to Green Bank to rest, and some moved in for good to live a life that is essentially of the grid. Even the use of microwave ovens is thrown upon. So perhaps, with little electro-smog, the feng shui of this town could be very good too.
Green Bank, West Virginia – No Electro-smog Town
Electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS)
Diane Schou suffered from electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) and she moved to Green Bank to escape electrosmog and “be a normal person”. The word about Green Bank, EMFs safe heaven, spread among the global EHS community and others started to come. Mountain Quest Institute offers a kind of sanctuary for electrosensitive people. The owner Alex Bennet, Co-founder of Mountain Quest, says that many guests arrive desperate to have a break from their symptoms and some have relocated to Green Bank. Norman Phillips is one of them, who was very sceptical about electromagnetic hypersensitivity but had to move in Green Bank since he became affected by EHS himself. He now feels comfortable, energetic and youthful, and he doesn’t experience any headaches and ringing in his ears anymore in this place of quiet.
I’ve visited Lisbon to teach feng shui at a feng shui conference. And feng shui is very popular here with many people interested in studying feng shui. Let’s examine Lisbon from feng shui perspective…
Feng shui of Lisboa, Portugal
Lisboa – the creativity area of the bagua of Portugal
Lisbon lies in the western Iberian Peninsula on the Atlantic Ocean and the River Tagus. Lisbon is the capital of Portugal and the largest city (before Porto), with a population of about half a million people (the population of Portugal is about 10 million). Lisbon is located in the western part of Portugal, which from feng shui bagua directionology perspective is the creativity, new future project area of the bagua. Lisbon is a city built on seven hills. Hence, it’s also named as a city of seven hills. Lisbon is four centuries older than Rome and a leading producer of cork.
Feng shui consultant in Valletta, Malta. Feng shui of Valletta and Malta.
As a feng shui consultant, I’ve evaluated the feng shui of Valletta and Malta as well as home and businesses of Malta. Valletta (or Il-Belt) is the small capital of the Mediterranean island nation of Malta that basks in the year-round sun. The walled city was established in the 1500s on a peninsula by the Knights of St. John, a Roman Catholic order. Valletta is known for grand churches, museums, and palaces. One key landmark is the Baroque St. John’s Co-Cathedral, whose rich in gilt interior houses the Caravaggio, brutally realistic masterpiece ‘The Beheading of Saint John.’ Let’s look at feng shui of Valetta and Malta in more detail.

The Maltese archipelago occupies the centre of the Mediterranean, with Malta 93km south of Sicily and 288km north of Africa and consists of three islands: Malta, Gozo and Comino with a total population of 475,000 inhabitants over an area of 316sq km and a coastline of 196.8km (not including 56.01km for the island of Gozo). Malta is the biggest island and the cultural, commercial and administrative centre of the country. Gozo is the second biggest island and is more agricultural, with fishing, crafts and tourism. Comino is mainly uninhabited. The weather is mostly sunny here, and with nice beaches and nightclubs, tourism is on the main industries here.
I’m visiting Porto, Portugal for the first time and I’m most curious about feng shui of this city. Porto is Portugal’s second-biggest city. My feng shui highlights are the bridges with spectacular vistas, the most beautiful bookshop in the world, fat sandwiches, pastries and some amazing views of Porto, as well as the wealth of ancient churches and contemporary museums. Portugal actually took its name from Porto which was given by Romans meaning Porto’s cow.
2.5 million tourists come to Naples (although it doesn’t feel very touristy) and I’m one of them – an avid enthusiast of Italy and Italian culture as well as food. My main interest apart of all the touristy bits is also checking the feng shui of the Italy 3rd largest city, it’s history, culture and the vibe.
The energy flow of Naples
Like many Italian places, Naples is hilly with flowing energy which nourishes different parts of the city. The best way to experience Naples is to use one of the four funicular lines and other public transport in the city. Or you can use a vespa (if you’re brave enough to ride of city’s cobbled streets and you don’t mind its relaxed approach to safe driving) to meander through Naples avoiding chaotic traffic and feeling free to stop anywhere you like to enjoy the many views of the city.
Feng shui of Naples Italy
Predecessor law of Naples
Settled by ancient Greek, approximately 2000 years BC, Naples is very old with a huge predecessor chi. Herculaneum offers great insight into the history of Naples.
Why come to Palma de Mallorca
Palma is Mallorca’s vibrant capital with stylish architecture and bubbling with life. Half of the island’s population lives in Palma. Palma is sometimes compared to Barcelona is with a 15-minute taxi ride from the airport, it offers a perfect location for a mini holiday. Let’s explore the feng shui of Palma and how we can learn from it.
Feng shui consultants in Palma de Mallorca Majorca
Wind – water of Palma de Mallorca Palma is located in the south of the island overlooking the Mediterranean sea with an enormous harbour which begins in front of the cathedral and borders the west. The sea promenade stretches all the way to the ferry port and cruise terminal, making it perfect for a stroll or cycle ride. The water element and the island air elements well established the feng shui of the place is defined well.
26.7 million tourists per year come to Hong Kong, making it the most visited city in the world. Is it because of feng shui and eight thousand skyscrapers (that’s double of New York) or because there is no fourth floor (unfortunately, the Chinese word for death is similar to digit 4, making it ‘unlucky’)? Let’s find out.
Athens, the capital of Greece (the oldest capital city in Europe), has a spectacular ancient history and feng shui to go with it. Greece and Athens, in particular, gave us democracy, Olympics, western philosophy, political science, theatre and comedy, algebra and lots of tourist attractions and monuments that belong to the Greek Ministry.
I’ve been to Copenhagen several times and I love feng shui of the Danish capital (voted the coolest city by the Lonely Planet). Copenhagen is the most visited destination in Scandinavia and voted the greenest city in Europe. The population of Copenhagen is just under two million and it’s the largest city in Scandinavia and one of the happiest places on Earth.
As a feng shui consultant, I’m fascinated by feng shui of Valencia, Spain’s third-largest city (after Barcelona (in some ways it’s a smaller version of Barcelona but with better weather) and Madrid, and before Seville which is the fourth largest city in Spain), with its history, parks, architecture, culture and cuisine, as well as drinks (the powerful local cocktail agua de Valencia). Not to mention, 100 bell towers to space clear this amazing city. It is also a citrus capital of Europe, producing 1.37milion tones of oranges. Valencia’s motto is Vivir Sin Dormir ie “Live without sleep”
Feng Shui Consultant in Valencia
History of Valencia
Valencia was set up in 138BC and it’s one of the oldest cities in Spain.
I love Barcelona and as a feng shui consultant – it’s one of my favourite cities that has an excellent feng shui on all fronts. Few other cities can compete with Barcelona’s Mediterranean charm, vibrancy and elegance. So, let me unpack. Perfect location ie by the sea with glorious sunshine, amazing and recongisable buildings and architecture (dreamy, curvy Gaudi), the spiritual vibe (enlightening La Sagrada Familia), history, far-out, epic cuisine including Cava tasting, a great market and a beach, art, including surrealist artist Miro and more…
La Sagrada Familia and spiritual feng shui
You can get to Barcelona by bus and even train to Barcelona Sants train station (via France) but air travel is the most efficient. 7.5m tourists come to Barcelona every year to create a buzzing nightlife. Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia region which has its own language and a flag (where they’ve invented Chupa Chups).
Seville, the Andalucian capital, is the sunniest city in Europe (nicknamed the frying pan of Europe) and the birthplace of flamenco. From feng shui perspective, this city full of chi or charge, if you like, requires full attention. Seville is the fourth biggest city in Spain (after Barcelona, Madrid and Valencia).

If you’re looking for a feng shui consultant near your home or business here’s a list of places where I work onsite or/and remotely.
When I visit different cities, I tend to look, from feng shui perspective, at the same things and aspects, noticing sameness and differences and all the details such as:
• the map of the city, the layout of streets and general shapes; I try to get hold of local honey, which is said to contain a fractal map of the place to embody the energetics of the city
• highest points to give me an overview of the place; there is something about seeing and sensing the whole city from one high point and best if there is a cafe or bar to enjoy the vistas (for example, the Esplanada do Teleférico Porto Portugal, positioned on a clifftop overlooking Porto or ONE Dine at One World Observatory at One World Trade Center, NYC or one of the four restaurants at Shard in London or free view from Sky Gardens in London)
• energetic points or power places
• chi/ energy level
• yin and yang
• five elements and how the shape the place; for example, street lighting can inform me about the fire element and safety aspects
• (shui) water element with rivers, lakes and water features as well as free water fountains which show that the mayors care about clean water, and are ecological, saving on plastic water bottles, etc and (feng) air element with trees, parks, greens
• biophilia effect: nature, parks, trees, city wildlife, plant life, window boxes; a great example is The High Line in Manhattan, NYC or secret gardens that you need to discover in every city
• people, values of the people; “What is the city but the people.” Shakespeare wrote in Coriolanus
• city branding; how cities and their mayors brand the spirit of their cities is essential to how visitors will perceive them; for example, Paris hasn’t changed the metro’s cleaning liquid because people have a familiar association with that scent
• the spirituality of the place, usually churches and sacred sites
• the processor law ie the history of the place and any traumatic events
Art, music, coffee, chocolate cake and feng shui
Vienna is home to Mozart, Hayden, Beethoven (2020 marks 250 years since the birth of Beethoven), Strauss and other musicians as well as the birthplace of the sowing machine, slow motion, psychoanalysis, croissant (not Paris) and the snow globe (yes, Schneekugeln was invented in Vienna over hundred years ago and there is a museum to prove it).
Feng Shui of Vienna’s Town Hall
13 million tourists flock to Vienna every year. About 2 million people live happily and comfortably in Vienna which has been voted the most livable city in the world for several years now (five times until 2019). Is it something to do with the feng shui of Vienna? I’m going to find out.
I love Amsterdam for all kinds of reasons. Feng shui is one of them, with the most amazing architecture and rhizomatic canals that make this city so vibrant and friendly. Let’s explore why Amsterdam is a model feng shui city.
Feng shui consultant in Amsterdam
Eurostar to Amsterdam Central Station made Amsterdam, the capital of the Netherlands, a very popular place to visit with 14 million tourists a year. What’s the attraction?
What is feng shui of Helsinki?
Helsinki is the seaside capital of Finland. I’ve visited it several times, teaching feng shui. Helsinki is the second most northern capital in the world was founded in 1550. Angry birds is the game invented in Helsinki but let’s see how feng shui fairs in this Scandinavian city.
Finland is one of the happiest countries in the world with excellent state education, free universities, the world’s cleanest air and low population. Also, Finland has been voted the third most innovative country in the world with a lifestyle that breeds creativity and innovation.
I’ve visited Faro several times and here’s my feng shui apraisal of the best of the Algarve’s seafront capital.
Faro is the capital of southern Portugal’s Algarve region which from feng shui directionology makes it the success, recogntion area in the bagua model. Faro is packed with history. Originally, Faro was built by the Romand and then conqured by the Moors. As a feng shui consultant I’ll be focusing on the town’s several important landmarks such as neoclassical Arco da Vila which is on the site of a gate that was part of the original Moorish wall, the monumental archway leads to the old town, with its cobbled streets as well as Faro Cathedral, built in the 13th century. The Municipal Museum, in a 16th-century convent, displays prehistoric and medieval artifacts, plus religious art. And charming traditional Portugese bars and cafes.
Stockholm, the capital of Sweden is the largest city in Scandinavia and was founded in 1252. Sweden is famous for many things, mainly Abba, Nobel prize, dynamite, GPS, Skype, Stockholm syndrome, and IKEA but is feng shui rooted in Sweden too? Let’s explore.
I love Oslo which I have visited many times, teaching feng shui over the years. Let me tell you why Oslo has good feng shui.
A very short history of Oslo: it was found in 1050 by Vikings, devasted by the black death in 1350, destroyed in the fire in 1624 and then rebuilt in stone and renamed Christiania by Christian IV, and become the capital of Norway in 1814 and given the current name in 1925. Oslo has given us the pop group Aha, cheese slicer and paperclip as well as the ‘The Scream’ by Edvard Munch and works by Henrik Ibsen (1828-1906). Oslo is one of the best cities to live in with low unemployment, good water, clean air and therefore good feng shui.
Feng shui consultant in Paris
Paris is home to artists, poets, philosophers and romantics – not to mention great architecture with good feng shui, cuisine and museums. 50 million tourists come to Paris every year, making it the third most visit city in the world. I come to Paris as a feng shui consultant in search of the European or French form of feng shui. Paris is a birthplace of bikini, stethoscope and a pencil sharpener among other things – feng shui things. Arboreal Paris is famous for its 484 000 trees which boost the biophilia effect of this picturesque capital of France. With great feng shui layout and the Seine river boosting the water element of Paris, it’s no wonder that Paris is one of the topmost visited cities in the world. Let’s look at Paris from a feng shui perspective to gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of this amazing city – the city of more than romance.
Cracow is the second biggest city in Poland and has been ranked as the best European city for a mini-break for the third year in a row. And came top in 40 destinations (Seville came second at 90%) according to Which magazine for food, accommodation and tourist attraction (93% scoring). With Cracow’s traditional markets, salt mines, the biggest town market in Europe, it’s no wonder that it has become a popular tourist attraction. But how about feng shui of Cracow? Is it as good?
Situated on the right bank of the Vistula river, it benefits from positive water energy.
Bucharest, the capital of Romania, is placed in southern Romania, which according to the bagua model is the success and recognition of the place. Economically, Bucharest is the most prosperous city in Romania with several large business companies, educational institutes, cultural venues, shopping areas and recreational places.
Scotland with its feng shui (wind-water) weather has many interesting towns and cities. Glasgow is one of them. It is a port city on the River Clyde in Scotland’s western Lowlands. Glasgow is famed for its Victorian and art nouveau architecture, as well as the legacy of the city’s 18th–20th-century prosperity that came from trade and shipbuilding.
Let’s examing feng shui of Glasgow and how Scots (naturally) utilised it in this interesting city.
Belgrade is the capital of Serbia, the southeast European country. From feng shui perspective the most important landmark in Belgrade is the Beogradska Tvrđava, an imposing fortress at the convergence of the Danube and the Sava rivers. The fortification is a testimonial to the city’s strategic significance to the Roman, Byzantine, Ottoman, Serbian and Austrian empires and it’s now the site of various museums as well as a vast park, Kalemegdan.
Budapest was named on 17 November 1873 to unite the hilly Buda and the flatter Pest. 3.7m tourist visit Budapest every year to see bohemian beauty. Hungary is the birthplace of biro and Rubik’s cube and vitamin C was discovered there too. So, how about feng shui of Budapest?
I’ve visited Tallinn as a feng shui consultant, originally, in 1995. I and a colleague of mine were asked to evaluate feng shui of Tallinn and Estonia and create a report on some major features that may affect the stability of Estonian independence and economic growth. Although feng shui of Tallinn and Estonia needs constant re-evaluation, it has come a long way since its independence in 1990.
Feng shui consultants in Tallinn, Estonia
Tallinn is Estonia’s capital on the Baltic Sea with a population of about half a million people. Key landmarks are the walled, cobblestoned old town, with many cafes and shops, as well as Kiek in de Kök, a 15th-century defensive tower. Gothic Town Hall, built in the 13th century and with a 64m-high tower, rests in historic Tallinn’s main square. Tallinn is the birthplace of Skype and the technological revolution that has been sweeping Estonia with its low tax and e-residency.
Madeira is an autonomous region of Portugal and an archipelago comprising four islands off the northwest coast of Africa, off the coast fo Morocco, north of the Canary Islands. Its namesake fortified wine, dense cakes and warm, subtropical climate are key features that most tourists know. But what about the feng shui of the main island of Madeira which is volcanic, green and rugged, with high cliffs, pebbly and volcanic beaches and settlements on deltas of the Fajã River. The capital of Madeira is Funchal with wonderful botanic gardens and a picturesque harbour where New Year’s fireworks take place – the biggest in the world.
Feng shui consultants in Madeira
History of Madeira
Maderia was both founded and claimed in 1400 by Portuguese and it’s known as the island of eternal spring with it’s the semi-tropical climate. Winston Churchill was a visitor to this island as well as Christopher Colombus. It is also a place birth of a footballer, Cristiano Ronaldo (who’s got his statue there – full name Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro). Funchal is the main city and originally meant ‘fennel plantation’ with a population of over 100k which makes it the sixth-largest city in Portugal.
Feng Shui of London. Feng Shui Bagua of London. Feng Shui Bagua of the UK.
Feng shui consultant in London.
I live in London where I work as a feng shui consultant. I am devoted to looking at feng shui of great cities, particularly those that have great feng shui. What is different about my feng shui perspective is that it focuses on the external environments and also focuses on its inhabitants, on the fabric of the city around them. When people appear in the background behind the roads, buildings, parks – they are the real stars of this city. This stimulating perspective encourages us to look at cities in a new way. From the Underground platforms to great monuments to how the energy flows in London, this study of feng shui of London will help you to look at what constitutes the city and to appreciate how visually and energetically exciting it is.
London – the wealth area of the bagua of the UK London is the capital of the UK and the largest city, with a population of over 8 million people (the population of the UK is 65.8 million). London is located in the southeast of the UK, which from feng shui bagua perspective is the wealth, prosperity area of the UK. Since London is the capital of the UK and a major tourist attraction, it can make sense from the bagua perspective that this city was established as one of the top global economic centres of the world. The key international airports such as Heathrow, Gatwick, Luton and Stanstead as well as City Airport provide excellent travel contact with the rest of the world. For the residents of London, according to statistics, wealth is important.
