Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

According to Taoists, all energy (chi) is interconnected--it is the subtle interplay between individual energies, which the ancient Chinese observed in nature led to the development of the art of placement (feng shui). By putting homes, burial grounds, dining rooms, or furniture in the correct spot in relation to other environmental components, such as hills, streams, doorways, or even mirrors, harmonious energies result, thereby creating peaceful, healthy, and prosperous lives for those existing in the energy field of a given place. With this easy-to-understand introduction, the Western reader can quickly adopt and adapt ancient principles relating to magnetism, the four directions, the harmony of opposites (yin and yang), the five elements, color, and light as they relate to space and place to transform their lives. Energy flows--how and where it flows is up to the feng shui practitioner. --P. Randall Cohan

Review

"Shares just enough Taoist history to make her book an interesting read, but not so much that the reader is confused about the connection between the history and its application to the art of placement. This text offers the reader opportunities to delve into personal attributes, behaviors, likes and dislikes." (Colleen Verbeke, PhenomeNEWS)

Format: Paperback
An exceptional book. Clearly written, inspirational, and a joy to read. Other books on feng shui have left me disheartened, fumbling with a compass and feeling my fate was hopelessly doomed by the layout of my home. However, within minutes of picking up this book, I was already delightfully making little changes here and there. By the time I was finished, my apartment was transformed! The I Ching summary at the end of the book adds a generous bonus to this already invaluable feng shui manual.

This is the only book that explains the wisdom and spirituality of Feng Shui in a way that is practical. I read it cover to cover in one sitting because it reads as exciting as a mystery. It was fun to picture in my mind how to apply the info to my own home as I read. Two thumbs up and six stars!

Format: Paperback
Ancient Taoists developed feng shui from an understanding of universal energies, and this guide traces its history and how its knowledge has evolved in conjunction with basic Taoist beliefs. More than just a 'how to' guide, this examines the spiritual foundations of feng shui concepts.

A wonderful guide to the Chinese practice of placement from a Taoist perspective. Offers traditional Taoist aspects of feng shui, including the Lo P'an Compass and the I Ching, as well as the relationship between feng shui and Taoist astrology. Also includes information on the Ba Gua Map and the Five Elements, including many examples of how to arrange rooms and counter negative energies in your home or office.

Susan Levitt has done a fantastic job of pulling together the ancient art of Feng Shui into a format that is understandable and very useful around the house and office. I am very pleased with the results, and I was fortunate enough to see financial, health, and relationship changes for the better.

I really like practical information and this book is full of it. It was clear and easy to read. I especially thought the insightful chapter on the five elements very applicable to everyday life. I have seen results from the suggestions in Susan's book.
