Feng Shui for Beginners (For Beginners)by Richard Webster
Synopses & Reviews
For thousands of years, the effect of environmental factors on living has been studied throughout Asia. Known as feng shui, this science allows you to determine the best location and direction of your home and workplace. It even shows where the rooms in your home should be to best facilitate energy flow. It is a complex science, but it is clearly explained by Richard Webster in Feng Shui for Beginners.
In this book you'll learn about the two major schools of this science. The Form School examines the shape of the land, the shape of your building, and even its direction in relation to the land around it. For example, you'll learn that wrought iron fences with sharp points should be avoided, gardens along the driveways are beneficial, and desks and beds should be against a wall.
The Compass School is based on the pa-kua, an octagonal symbol surrounding the famous yin-yang. Each side is related to one of the eight trigrams from the I Ching, and is related to certain energies. If you are planning a house, you can put a pa-kua over the plans and determine which direction your home should face and the best way to arrange the rooms.
