"Real feng-shui, refreshingly expressed by a true practitioner of the art with her feet firmly grounded in the Chinese Taoist tradition. Definitely one of the top 10 books on feng-shui in English."— Feng Shui for Modern Living
"Even the most casual or ambivalent reader will come away from the book with a greater sensitivity to the environment—landforms, rocks, trees, rivers, etc.—and greater appreciation of the relationship between traditional feng-shui guidelines and many of the principles of contemporary Western ecology."— Asian Thought and Society
A comprehensive study of feng-shui discusses the theoretical and philosophical principles of the ancient Chinese art of harmonious design, the history of its practice, and ways to adapt one's environment to harmonize the patterns of the universe.Alle Produktbeschreibungen

In this book the author provides a detailed history of the development of feng shui and its ties to Taoist philosophy. She also includes a short but informative explanation of the Chinese calendar. She then moves on to a brief description of aspects of the geomantic compass (i.e., the Lo Pan) that are salient to her particular practice of feng shui. A considerable portion of the book is devoted to Form School feng shui; that is, evaluating the landscape, both rural and urban, for auspicious locations. Some of this material is, admittedly, difficult to follow. I found the graphic representations of landforms to be somewhat esoteric and hard to understand. However, if you want to gain a thorough understanding of the basics of Form School feng shui as practiced by the Chinese masters, this is a terrific source of information. Trying to comprehend the material left me with an appreciation for why the Chinese require aspiring practitioners to be apprenticed to feng shui masters in order to learn the art of feng shui.
The author also teaches her readers how to apply Flying Star feng shui, which she calls the Nine Palaces. The flying stars refer to nine stars (five of which make up the Big Dipper) which are believed to exert an influence on one's feng shui. The author explains how to set up a natal chart for your home based on the directions faced by the front and back of the house and the cycle (according to the Chinese calendar) in which the home was built. From the natal chart you can determine the configuration of the nine stars and whether they portend benevolence or malevolence for each room of your home and its occupants. You also learn how to apply the flying star formulas on a monthly and yearly basis to see how the passage of time affects the feng shui of your home. The author includes many examples for you to follow in order to learn the technique. She also shows you how to assign bedrooms based on the occupant's year of birth and how to set up countermeasures to lessen the impact of destructive stars. Setting up and interpreting the charts requires some very detailed work, and you need to be comfortable working with numbers to really enjoy this approach to feng shui.
I have found it utterly fascinating to learn Flying Star feng shui. One begins to contemplate the idea that every house has its own life cycle and that some cycles are more auspicious than others in which to build new homes. (For example, the upcoming cycle from 2004-2023 will be a particularly good time to build since houses built during this cycle will have energy that is either "high", "good", or "rising" for 160 out of the next 180 years!) I have also found the book to be a very useful reference work for understanding Nine Ki (Nine Star) astrology as well as references to Flying Star feng shui made by other authors.
