5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Beginning Guide to Traditional Feng Shui, October 9, 2000
This review is from: The Complete Idiot's Guide To Feng Shui (Paperback)
As a professional Feng Shui consultant, teacher and moderator of an online discussion group on Feng Shui and the Four Pillars of Destiny, I am often asked to recommend the best book for beginning students on compass school FS. The "Complete Idiot's Guide to Feng Shui" has been my choice since its publication.
The authors have performed a great service to those seeking to undertake the study of the complexities of Feng Shui by providing an organized format that builds layers of understanding while keeping the information personally relevant and often entertaining.
The fundamental principles of Feng Shui are covered - the nature of qi, yin/yang, the elements (phases), trigrams and form school - as well as two compass school methodologies, the East/West system and beginning Flying Stars. Easy reference charts, tables and diagrams are useful tools for beginning and advanced students alike. Many chapters contain workbook pages so that the information can be readily applied to the reader's own environment.
Learning traditional Feng Shui is initially more complex than following the generic fixes/advice offered in some books. All houses, buildings, environments and people are not the same, and do not remain static over time. CIG teaches, in the simplest possible way, Feng Shui that is authentic and effective. Superstitious and superficial practices are debunked through logical reasoning.
The highly respected Master Joseph Yu wrote the chapters on the basics of the Four Pillars of Destiny (one form of Chinese astrology) - worth the price of the book alone, as other reviewers have noted.
CIG is a must for anyone wanting to learn true Feng Shui.
