Editorial Reviews

Review

For thousands of years, the Chinese have used the teachings of Feng Shui to enhance their lives. Now, these powerful principles are translated into a practical and thought-provoking guide for people in the Western world. Kathryn Collins is an instructor in Feng Shui and she explains why the arrangement of your home and workplace affects every aspect of your life, including your relationships, your heath, and your finances. She takes you on a step-by-step journey through your own home and office, opening your "Feng Shui eyes" to see the problems (and the solutions) in your physical world. The Western Guide To Feng Shui is a fascinating collection of many stories about the positive changes that have occurred in people's lives after making Feng Shui adjustments. The Western Guide To Feng Shui is highly recommended for all metaphysical reference book collections. -- Midwest Book Review

Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful explanation of the philosophy and easy-to-understand, practical, application of "form school" feng shui (the school/method of feng shui most popular in the U.S.). After reading probably 10 other feng shui books, it was one of the first that was clear yet in-depth with explanations to support the advice given. What is called the "form school" (also called black hat sect feng shui), as is explained in this book, is one of two basic feng shui approaches. The other approach is the traditional "compass school" approach, for which I recommend the Complete Idiot's Guide to Feng Shui. Out of all of the feng shui books I've read -- these two are many steps above the rest to understand the two basic feng shui approaches.

Format: Paperback
I've used the practical info from this book in my present home with great success. I've compensated for a cut-off travel corner and love corner. Dare I say my marriage is happier and I'm actually getting tired of traveling so much? I also placed a water fountain near the front door (career area) and our business is going gangbusters. Coincidence? I don't know but even my pragmatic engineer husband believes. Now I'm building a new house on a piece of land and I'm using Feng Shui principles in the design. I did note that my architect uses the same principles unconsciously such as positioning the house according to prevailing winds and direction of the sun. This shows me that Feng Shui uses down to earth design principles that are timeless. Highly recommended as an introduction to Feng Shui.

Format: Paperback
The Western Guide was the first book I read on the subject of Feng Shui. It was such a clear treatise on a very complex subject I was inspired to study with Ms. Collins at her Western School of Feng Shui in San Diego, CA (advertised in the back of the book). As a result of her training program, I have been practicing Feng Shui professionally for almost two years now. The Western Guide to Feng Shui did indeed create harmony and prosperity in my life! Since that time I have read many other Feng Shui books, but Terah's method still rates at the top for clarity and western practicality. VERY highly recommended - the best book for those new to the subject.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I found this book very helpful. It was originally reviewed by a student of mine for a college class which led me to buy Collins' other book "Feng Shui Room by Room". I like the other book even better (I would give it 5 stars). These books bring the concepts into focus for use in a western setting. I transformed two major parts of my house within the first week and it was life changing. In fact I was able to make some powerful changes the first night. Also I didn't spend a lot of money but rather used things I already owned and loved that were either in storage or in the wrong place. I found myself loving my house for the first time in many years instead of constantly thinking about moving.

Format: Paperback
This book introduces Feng Shui in a manner that allows you to get right in and play with it. There's no need to rush out and buy things you can't find, although I did spend some money changing color schemes. The people in my office laughed a lot, but took it a little more seriously after I placed a frog at the entry door and business started booming. Now even the non-believers are careful to see that he's placed correctly! This is a great beginners book and more useful than others I've bought since.

Format: Paperback
Even if you don't necessarily believe in the precepts of Feng Shui, Ms. Collins does an excellent job of making you look at your environment with new eyes. With her help you can find things about your house and surroundings that may be bothering you subconciously, be making your environment subtly uncomfortable or even dangerous. If you do wish to know about the form school of Feng Shui, I can't think of a better introduction. This book is very readable and entertaining, while being useful to anyone who cares to try to apply it to their surroundings. Not much more you could ask for.

Format: Paperback
This book gives a logical explanation of the theory of Feng Shui and Case studies to specifically explain how it can change lives. No compasses or silly superstitions, just real stuff you can use (without having to move every couple of years so your door face the right direction like those compass schools lead you to believe.)

If you are interested in Feng Shui, this is a good place to start. This was the first book I read on Feng Shui, and I found it very easy to comprehend. Out of the many other books I have read since then, I feel this was one of the best written and easiest to understand. I recommend this book!
