Feng Shui Made Easy: Designing Your Life with the Ancient Art of Placement

Front Cover
Harper Collins, Oct 19, 1995 - House & Home - 210 pages

Did you know that you can improve your love life by moving your bed? Or enhance your wealth by rearranging your office? Or even deflect bad luck with convex mirrors? Chinese philosophers have understood geomancy (the art of placement) for more than two thousand years-and architects like I. M. Pei, businesses like Virgin Airways, and real estate moguls like Donald Trump are listening.

Integrating interior design with the I Ching, feng shui (pronounced fung-schway) harmonizes our external and internal environments by creating balanced, peaceful dwellings in which we can develop health and happiness. its powerful secrets have been closely guarded for centuries-and what has been written tends to be mystifying and impractical. But reading Feng Shui Mode Easy is like having an expert visit your own home or office. William Spear is a sought-after consultant in the field-and with specific case studies, as well as fifty drawings that clearly demonstrate the subtle energy flow principles of the art of placement, he shows you how to easily apply the wisdom of geomancy to everyday living. "Feng Shui Mode Easy tells you more than just how to rearrange your furniture, it tells you how to change your life." Home Shui Home!
