Synopses & Reviews
Jayme Bartett; the feng shui consultant to the rich and powerful of Beverly Hills, has written the most comprehensive and life changing book on the subject. Taking us on a personal tour of the homes she has transformed, Ms. Barrett explains the techniques she uses to create "positive space." Room by room, she illustrates the deeper purpose of every aspect of design; she demonstrates how the simplest adjustment-moving a plant from one corner to another--can make a world of difference in your daily mood and ultimately, your life. Feng shui, she observes is not just about the spaces we occupy. It is a philosophy and way of life that begins with our spiritual awakening and rebirth. Once we use her regimen to cleanse ourselves of impurities of spirit, we can turn to the transformation of our environment and our lives. Lush photography and hundreds upon hundreds of facts, ideas, tips, and suggestions-from her own experience and gleaned from the wisdom of the ages--take us ever closer to the revitalization of home, health, and spirit.
"Books like Feng Shui Your Life
usually languish on coffee tables, picked over like so many hors d'oeuvres. But this one is more than just a pretty face. It's a practical, inspiring roadmap to clearing clutter from your life, and the first on Feng Shui I've seen that isn't just for people who can afford to throw out their broken things and buy new ones. It is, in other words, a helpful basis for true change." -- Susan Salter Reynolds, Los Angeles Times Book Review
