Barry Gordon got his degree in Physics and then became a Career Naval Diving Officer. During his three tours in Vietnam, he had a Near Death Experience which changed the course of his life. In 1970, he left the Navy and went to live in India for two years, where he lived in an Ashram, meditated extensively, became a vegetarian, learned yoga, tended an elephant, and learned how to heal his PTSD’s.
When he returned to The States, Barry continued his meditations and eclectic spiritual studies. In 1983, he had the good fortune to meet Feng Shui Grand Master, Professor Lin Yun. Barry devoted himself to studying with the Master for 7 years. Then, Prof. Lin asked Barry to teach Feng Shui classes, at USF. In 1992, Prof. Lin asked Barry to be one, of three, Founders & Teachers of his BTB Feng Shui Masters Training Program. For more information on Barry, visit his website: from-the-heart-feng-shui.com
