Monica P. Castaneda (Moni) obtained her degree as an architect in Ecuador, South America. Upon moving to the United States she devoted over a decade to study and research Feng Shui.

She looked at all the schools and all the systems and sorted through the myths and superstitions to find out what was useful and applicable in the Western world of today, using Traditional Chinese Medicine and Western New Thought as her points of reference.

Moni is a Feng Shui consultant, author, speaker, and teacher.


“In this Universe, nothing ever happens by accident and, so it was, I stumbled across Moni Castaneda’s website in a search of someone who could genuinely help me separate out all the facts from so much of the “fiction” about the principles and dynamics of Feng Shui which is rampant on the Internet. Moni’s online courses are powerful and so are her “long distance consultations”. She is well studied and incredibly knowledgeable as well as sharing herself with those she interacts with. I cannot recommend her enough to anybody who wishes to either pursue Feng Shui for their own personal growth or to become a Teaching Consultant. With her at the helm of learning, one could not ask for more superior Teacher.”  Ariaal Ashlie, Kelowna, B.C.


“I have been interested in and intrigued by Feng Shui for about 25 years. I was able to read books and put things together with some amazing outcomes until I married and moved into his home in Dallas, TX. It is a large, beautiful, mid-century home with some special characteristics. I purchased more books and still couldn’t make Feng Shui make sense in this home. I was looking for help to improve our financial situation as well as health and well-being. One day I saw Moni’s site and I knew she was what I needed. I chose to purchase her long distance home consultation program and I am very glad I did… I would recommend her to anyone interested in learning about Feng Shui. In fact, as soon as I go back to work I would like to continue to use her services and knowledge.” Debbie Daley, Dallas, TX

“I cannot tell you how long it has been since Feng Shui has gotten my attention. I’ve bought books, listen to videos, and many times searched on the web for information about Feng Shui. But it was always so overwhelming with all the information that needs to be learned… The course was great, I learned many things from Moni and every time I had a question, she answered it clearly and even gave more information than needed. I still have a lot to learn and what’s great is that I can go back to the course to review things I might have forgotten. I enjoyed the course so much, that I took it a step further. I decided I want to become a Feng Shui Consultant. “  Esperanza Galarza, Woodbridge, NJ


My name is Moni Castaneda and I graduated with a degree in Architecture from the Central University of Ecuador. When I moved to the USA I found out that in order to practice architecture I would have to go back to school for 4 years! Somehow, that didn’t feel right. I knew there had to be some purpose to going to school to get a 6 year degree in a profession that I would not be able to practice. I found this purpose when I discovered Feng Shui. I knew that my knowledge of architecture allowed me to understand Feng Shui at a deeper level. At the same time, my original profession added credibility to my new, chosen profession.

I wanted to bring Feng Shui to the 21st century, to understand and respect all the deep ancient knowledge, but apply it in a way that would make sense to us today. I also wanted Feng Shui to look good, to integrate easily into our current decorating styles, without losing its powerful symbolism.

Towards these goals I have worked for over 15 years, studying every Feng Shui concept fully, then testing, then checking results. The result of these studies is a collection of textbooks, professional charts and online courses. I offer courses for Feng Shui aficionados, and also for those with enough passion for the art of placement to train as Feng Shui Consultants in the Nine Steps to Feng Shui System® that I developed. This system, based on 9 principles of universal law, is at the core of my books and courses. The Nine Steps to Feng Shui® System is based on the principles of Ancient Chinese Wisdom, but adapted to the needs and modern decorating styles, using the language from Western and Native American healing traditions.

Monica P. Castaneda – Moni – is a Feng Shui consultant, teacher, and speaker. Moni was born and grew up in Ecuador (South America), where she got a degree in Architecture in July of 1995. The next month, August, Moni moved to the United States to join her husband Marco.

In the Mississppi Gulf Coast, Moni found out that she would not be able to practice Architecture in the United States, because there are no agreements between schools in the USA and schools in Ecuador.  For a while, Moni wondered why she had felt just a strong urge to study Architecture, only to find out she would not be able to practice, but it all made sense when she found Feng Shui.

Moni’s background as an architect gave her an advantage in understanding many aspects of Feng Shui, as well as adapting the principles of this ancient Chinese art of space arrangement to the needs and aesthetic values of the Western world in this time and age.

Even with all her knowledge, Moni found that many things about Feng Shui were confusing, and she made it her mission to arrive at a clear understanding of Feng Shui, sifting superstition from true authentic knowledge, but keeping her art rooted in Ancient Chinese Wisdom.

Moni, aware that Feng Shui is one of the Five Branches of Traditional Chinese Medicine, engaged the help of acupuncturists and herbalists to truly understand the underlying principles of these healing arts, and see how the same principles could be applied to Feng Shui.

The result of all this work was the Nine Steps to Feng Shui® System.

Moni offers online home, business and landscaping Feng Shui Consultations, Feng Shui text books, Feng Shui cures, and Feng Shui Online Courses.
