The Academy was founded in 2001 by Vic Ketis, who after extensive years of training, started teaching due to the demands of prospective students. Now in its fourteenth year, the college has evolved every year presenting more extensive and comprehensive programs to meet student and educational demands.
Vic Ketis also travels extensively to conferences and education seminars locally and overseas, as a lecturer and also integrating new evolving information from the local and world stage into the current programs. Students can be assured of the most up to date information and developments in these expanding fields.
Interest in Feng Shui has increased exponentially over the last few years. Training has developed the required sophistication and academic depth relevant to meeting the needs of building dynamics and the architectural demands of design. No longer a quick fix using Chinese remedies, this ancient principled science has now developed to a point where it has the professionalism required to be integrated into any building analysis or development process.
The Feng Shui course offered by the Australian Academy of Feng Shui is a high quality, dynamic and enlightening course that has developed to meet the professionalism and expertise required to meet the often complex building demands of clients requiring work in existing buildings, or right through to the design of a new building. The applications can be at the domestic right up to commercial and substantial property development. The excitement of the possibilities of this profession is increasing.
Nowhere is this more evident in that 2008 saw the first consultants only Feng Shui conference in Australia advancing our work under the auspices of a Professional Feng Shui Association. Many of the college graduates have become successful and leading consultants.
The Chinese Astrology program is a one year, four part certificate course. However 8 further parts are offered over a further 2 years if students wish to continue their study. It has developed over the last 14 years, and is finding increasing interest and relevance in understanding personal energy dynamics and understanding our relationship to the changing world circumstances. Understanding of current and relevant global themes from an astrological perspective greatly enhances our ability to negotiate our personal and collective challenges as we move through our lives.
The Chinese Astrology program is available in Melbourne and as a series of weekend modules in Sydney. Prospective students (and friends) considering the program are invited to attend the first night of the course which also doubles as a free introduction to Chinese Astrology and the dynamics of the upcoming Year.
The college also offers an ongoing Chinese Astrology study class where past and present students can discuss charts, case studies, and explore in more detail astrological topics and themes, thereby developing and integrating their knowledge.
Study of the I Ching offers the student the depth of understanding of the ancient Chinese Philosophy that can be studied for its own interest or used to enhance knowledge in other fields. Its theoretical understanding is vast and complex and can also be used as a divinatory tool to give clarity and understanding in life direction and decision making.
