• By the author of Body Feng Shui.
Many people are now familiar with the use of feng shui to design living spaces that harmonize with the landscape and that enhance the positive aspects of one's life. Few people know, however, that these same feng shui principles can be applied to the human body to chart the relationship between inner character and outer appearance. Focusing on the special needs of women, Beauty Feng Shui explains the spiritual and physical meaning of each part of the body according to min xiang shue--body feng shui--and provides exercises and meditations to restore harmony to those areas compromised by energy imbalances. A wide spectrum of specific beauty and health concerns is addressed, including acne, menstrual cramps, wrinkles, and overly dry or oily skin.
But beauty is not only skin deep. Chao-Hsiu Chen also discusses inner beauty and how to strengthen it through meditation, visualization, and imagination. She includes daily exercises that allow the reader to deepen self-awareness, alter destructive behavior patterns, and create an effective spiritual practice. More than one hundred illustrations show these exercises and special Chinese characters for use in meditation and visualization.
