(in my happy place- immersed (literally) in art)

My name is Dana Claudat and I am the Dana behind The Tao of Dana.  I studied Art History at Stanford University and became a modern Feng Shui consultant.  I design homes. I design lifestyles. I curate art collections.

Mainly: I help people rewrite their story to give more of themselves to life and  get more of what they want from life.

I should mention that when I started studying Feng Shui about fifteen years ago, I was not sure that it “worked.”  I mean, moving furniture to change your life is a crazy concept at first blush, don’t you think?!

It really does work.  It still amazes me how well it works.

My job is to help you design your dream life. You can start right now with the Life Detox Jump Start Course that I created for you as a gift to get you working with expansive design.

This is Expansive Design: every limitation you believe you have can be lifted with simple shifts, new habits and dedication to a more empowered and much lighter life!

By changing your home you can change your life. By changing your thoughts you can change the world.

We are always evolving.

The way we practice and work in the world needs to evolve, too.

That’s part of why I created this blog- so that we could share in the learning and stretching of boundaries in service of better lives and more happiness and peace in the world.

And, it’s why, after years of breaking the mold and innovating in this field, I started The School of Intention and began training Professionals in this revolutionary Feng Shui method.

Ok, now, a bit about me as me:  I am Modern & Contemporary art obsessed. Curating is in my DNA.  I can cook all day (somewhat elaborately).  Like many of us, nature makes me come alive.  I’m ironically from a colorful family in a very suburban and Nature-Free part of New Jersey.

One day my parent’s memoir will be done.

Writing is my tangible form of heaven.

My wish for every visitor is to find and use even a piece of an idea to have a more creative, expansive, love-filled, abundant life.

You are all my teachers and my inspiration! 



My personal P.S. — This blog is dedicated to my incredible mother Maggie who was- and always will be- a saint. She never ran out of sparkle and time to help everyone who crossed her path.

I really wish she got to see this any of this while she was here, but I imagine she reads it every day, somehow.
