Biophilic Design Certification Course
Self-Study with Private Community + Support
Why Biophilic Design? Why Now?
- Biophilic design expresses our love of life (biophilia) in our homes and work spaces for greater wellbeing. It's never been more relevant, nor more desirable, than now.
- Infuse biophilic design with some of the more spiritual dimensions (i.e., connection to the land, spirit of place) that it currently lacks.
- Find and use cost-effective ways to adopt biophilic design in current spaces - Help clients who may want to embrace biophilic design on a smaller scale by making some changes to their current spaces.
- For feng shui practitioners, it's a wonderful discipline to enhance our practice through languaging, principles, and research
Become the Expert!
I've studied Biophilic Design since 2009 and even visited with the "father" of biophilic design, Stephen Kellert, at his Yale University office at the Environmental & Forestry School.
Professor Kellert has said that "biophilic design is a modern take on feng shui."
However, there are some major distinctions between the two disciplines and learn how you can benefit from it.
