Feng Shui is the study of Qi – the elemental energy of nature. Classical Feng Shui analyzes both a site’s external environment, which includes landform and support from surrounding structures, as well as its internal forms, which take into account the location, facing direction of the site, and the effect of time. Functional Feng Shui incorporates Xuan Kong Flying Stars Feng Shui to identify and activate positive stars in one’s environment and the 8 Mansions for the best sleeping and working positions according to the occupants’ personal directions.

A Feng Shui assessment aims to identify and harness auspicious Qi in one’s environment while transforming the more volatile sectors into a more supportive space that will help bring better health, harmony, growth, prosperity, and good opportunities to all occupants.

Principal Consultant Vicki Iskandar has been mentoring clients on Feng Shui and BaZi (Chinese Astrology) since 2012, 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 founded Functional Feng Shui to help others manifest their personal and professional visions and maximize their potentials, using a balanced, 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, expertise in health and wellness, and a unique energetic understanding of the body informed by Qi Gong.

A prolific writer, Vicki 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.

An Indonesian-born Chinese, Vicki left her home town of Jakarta and moved to Southern California when she was fourteen. She’s still deeply connected to her roots in Asia and travels regularly to sacred places around the world to deepen her studies of Metaphysics. She complements the wisdom 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.

Vicki is also a licensed California Realtor (DRE #02109794). Having worked with real estate agents, developers, investors, and homebuyers in the past few years as a Feng Shui consultant, she enjoyed the interactions and the relationships built so much she decided to get a real estate license. She’s now able to provide her clients with the most unique real estate experience in Southern California as part of the Anderson | Pace Real Estate Group at Compass.
