Principal Consultant Vicky Iskandar has studied Chinese Metaphysics at the Raymond Lo School of Feng Shui and Destiny, American Feng Shui Institute, and Joey Yap’s Mastery Academy of Chinese Metaphysics. She also holds certification to teach Qi Gong and yoga from Matthew Cohen’s Sacred Energy Arts.
She has been advising clients on BaZi / Four Pillars of Destiny, a form of Chinese Astrology, since 2012, and Feng Shui since 2013 after getting her certifications from Grand Master Raymond Lo, while serving as a digital marketing consultant for a variety of brands in LOHAS (Lifestyle of Health and Sustainability). In 2017, she made the transition to Feng Shui consulting full-time and is now committed to helping others manifest their personal and professional visions and maximize their potentials, using a unique holistic approach that combines the ancient art of Chinese Metaphysics (which includes Feng Shui, BaZi, and Qi Men Dun Jia) with her background in business strategies and her expertise in health and wellness.
A prolific writer, Vicky has been writing for print and digital publications since she completed her MBA in Marketing from New York University. Not a stranger to the world of luxury and design, she’s edited the pages of global fashion magazines, including Harper’s Bazaar Singapore. She’s offered her daily astrological insights, a unique blend of Chinese and Western astrology on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook at @goldriverastro since 2012.
Based in Los Angeles with roots in Southeast Asia, Vicky travels regularly to Asia to study with the region’s Feng Shui masters and visit sacred places around the world to deepen her studies of Metaphysics. She supports the knowledge gained with grounding spiritual practices that include Seven Star Taoist Qi Gong, the Afro-Brazilian Orixá dance movement, and yoga. She is in deep gratitude to Eva Wong for her guidance in Qi Gong and Taoism, Vida Vierra of Rainbow Body Healing for stirring the pot, and her great ancestors for the gift and encouragement in continuing the Taoist lineage.
