The first complete, in-depth course in the traditional Chinese art of harmonious design for interiors, buildings, and sites--including instructions for making your own geomantic compass for feng-shui readings. Deeply rooted in Taoist and shamanic origins, feng-shui is not simply a list of directives for building auspicious structures or arranging interiors for good luck. It is the art of reading the patterns of the universe and living in harmony with the environment. With 200 photos and diagrams.

"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
