POWER BAZI is a 4 day hands-on class on BaZi or Four Pillars of Destiny taught by Bernice Low, an established BaZi practitioner and author of the BaZiqueen, one of the leading Internet resources on the topic of BaZi.
WHAT IS BAZI?
BaZi is one of two systems of Chinese Astrology, the other being Purple Star Astrology. Both these systems fall under the study of Destiny (Ming 命), within the broad umbrella of the subject known as Chinese Metaphysics.
For the average person, Chinese Astrology comprises of what are in essence, personality traits, associated with the 12 Animal Signs as they are known (Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, Pig). Most people think that the sum total of Chinese Astrology rests on their Animal Sign, determined by the year of their birth. Whilst there is some historical basis for this, the reality is that basing a person’s personality on the year of their birth is HARDLY the sum total of Chinese Astrology. In fact, BaZi is MUCH MORE than just your animal sign – it is more than just Dragon-born people are always successful and Dog-born people are loyal.
So what is BaZi then? BaZi is a highly sophisticated, supremely accurate method of personality testing, psychometric and behavioural assessment, and a highly accurate system for forecasting outcomes and managing risks. It is the original ‘Science of Success’, a precise and tested system that explains what books like Malcolm Gladwell’s ‘Outliers’ attempt to figure out and answer: how and why does a person achieve success?
WHO SHOULD LEARN BAZI?
Conventionally, the kind of people who have been attracted to learning BaZi have tended towards the kooky or those with spiritual inclinations and in a number of instances, people who are nothing more than busybodies interested in other people’s lives.
The reality is however that BaZi is a very useful strategic skill for individuals looking to gain a professional and personal advantage in life and those who are seeking an extra edge when it comes to personal and career success.
Managing relationships and people is an integral part of every person’s life. And the hardest part of life.
Everyone manages someone in life – spouses, parents, staff, superiors, clients – and is managed by someone. Even CEOs have to answer to someone – the Board of Directors. Each year, new books hit the market, designed to teach us how to effectively, manage our relationships.
BaZi offers the ability to gain instant insight into a person’s innate character and personality as well as deep understanding of their psyche and behaviour. Understanding a person and what makes them tick is the hardest part of any relationship – BaZi lets you do this without the ‘getting to know you’ game or spending hours or years with the person. In fact, you don’t even have to ask a single question – all you need is their birthday. Get over who they are right away, so that you can get on with working with them in the best way possible
Life is all about risk management
Everything we do in life comes with an accompanying risk and managing risk is all about forecasting and informed decision-making. BaZi gives you an added edge when it comes to managing risk in your life (from investments to relationships to collaborations and partnerships) by enabling you to forecast with accuracy a finite number of outcomes of a given decision, choice or action. With BaZi knowledge, nothing you ever do will be a case of throwing the dice, but instead, will transform into a calculated bet. You’ll understand what your attitude and outlook on risk is, your capacity and ability for risk management and finally, how to manage risk in your life. You will learn to work with winners, and stay away from the losers and bozos.
Understanding Luck and Capitalising On Luck
“Of course, we should keep celebrating the talented, hard-working people who have succeeded in their businesses or careers. But the research provides an important moral lesson: that these people might also do well to remain more humbly mindful of their own good fortune” – Robert H. Frank, Professor of Economics, Johnson Graduate School of Management at Cornell University.
No successful person discounts the value or opportunity presented by luck in their life. Unfortunately, Luck is often ill-understood as a random or chance situation, an opportunity that presents itself without notice or warning, with no true form. A significant portion of BaZi is actually about understanding the concept of Luck and how it is NOT a random occurrence, but one that can be forecast and timed, but aptly and correctly exploited and utilised for maximum personal advantage and benefit.
WHO IS THE CLASS DESIGNED FOR?
Entrepreneurs, the self-employed, CEOs and managers and human resource managers will benefit substantially from this class. However, any person who is in the business of talent management or who is interested in achieving success in life, will find this class useful to their own goals.
The focal point of the class is to enable participants to utilise with clarity and confidence the information provided, the structure and syllabus of the class is orientated around maximising practical use of bare basic technical information. As such, the syllabus has been culled to keep it very tight and lean, with a strong emphasis on practical analysis and reading skills. Due to the strong emphasis on ensuring all participants are able to effectively learn and master the techniques taught in the class, the size of the class is capped at 15 participants, to ensure a high level of personal attention. The class is also split into two weekends to enable participants to adequately digest the contents of the first two days.
For these reasons, individuals looking to become consultants or practitioners or who are learning for novelty purposes will not find this class tailored to their needs.
The class combines both theory and practical application so participants will be expected to engage with the facilitator of the class, answer questions, ask questions and also participate in group discussions and practical sessions. Learning will combine lectures delivered with accompanying slides, and Socratic method sessions.
At the end of the 4 days, participants should be able to confidently do the following:
Gain instant insight into any individual’s fundamental character and psyche using the BaZi chart
Ascertain the flaws and strengths of an individual, including quirks, gifts and talents
Engage in a very simple, pre-formated annual assessment of their own chart to identify opportunities for Career, Wealth and Relationship.
Specific questions that you should be able to answer from your own chart at the end of the 4 day class include:
Suitable years/months to seek a promotion, change jobs/career
Suitable years to invest, divest and when you should divest/reinvest
Suitable years for marriage/relationships as well as business partnerships
Determining the financial and career opportunities that are afforded by the incoming year
Determining the personal pitfalls of the coming year

LIMITATIONS OF THE CLASS
We’re going to level with you here and be upfront about what you won’t be able to do after taking this class.
Precision forecasting which provides exact timing and precise details of opportunities and pitfalls, high level character interpretation and analysis and the development of solutions to problems is not possible with the information and methods provided in this class. You will NOT be able to achieve the level of accuracy and precision of a BaZi consultant from taking this one class. In fact, you will not even come close to a professionally trained consultant.
There are two reasons for these limitations: firstly, the syllabus has been trimmed to keep it lean and focus on getting students up and running with usable information. As such, information in chart interactions has not been included in this class and will be taught in a follow-on class. Secondly, it is not possible for students to master the basics, intermediate and advanced aspects of BaZi in a single class, without having engaged in any practice in between. BaZi is like any sport – you have to learn all the components of the game before you can play it.
However, with POWER BAZI: START UP, the goal is to familiarise you with the key tenets and principles of BaZi and get you started in using BaZi in a controlled and specific manner. With subsequent classes you will add depth to your knowledge and understanding, giving you a high degree of accuracy in your forecasting skills and your ability to read and assess a person’s character.
IMPORTANT: This class is a strictly introductory level class designed to provide a intense introduction to the topic, and provide practical training on ways to utilise BaZi with limited technical information.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE CLASS?
The class has been designed to enable you to get up and running with the subject. So even if you don’t go on to take the subsequent levels of the class, you will be able to utilise BaZi in your day to day life to better understand the people around you who matter but more importantly, those who matter but whom you dislike. You may not understand them perfectly or completely, but you will certainly understand them BETTER and in a new light, but more importantly, you will gain insight into who they truly are.
BaZi is an intellectually rigorous art that requires continuous practice in order to gain significant mastery of the topic. Upon completing the class, participants need to immediately put into practice their knowledge by tackling a minimum of 50 charts and doing trial readings, usually with individuals whom they are familiar with in order to gain confidence and also, test their understanding of the subject.
Participants of this class will further supported via a Facebook-powered student’s page that will enable collective learning in a moderated environment. The facilitator of the class will be running the page, and providing guidance as you get to grips with the topic, and you will have the opportunity to also share your personal findings and challenges with your fellow participants.
This is a 4 day class taught over two back-to-back weekends.
Date: 1-2 June [Sat/Sun], 8-9 June 2013 [Sat/Sun]
