    Review quote
    "Real feng-shui, refreshingly expressed by a true practitioner of the art with her feet firmly grounded in the Chinese Taoist tradition. Definitely one of the top 10 books on feng-shui in English."-- "Feng Shui for Modern Living " "Even the most casual or ambivalent reader will come away from the book with a greater sensitivity to the environment--landforms, rocks, trees, rivers, etc.--and greater appreciation of the relationship between traditional feng-shui guidelines and many of the principles of contemporary Western ecology."-- "Asian Thought and Society "
    Back cover copy
    Here is a complete, in-depth course in the traditional Chinese art of harmonious design - including instructions for making your own geomantic compass for feng-shui readings. The ancient art of feng-shui has guided the Chinese people for thousands of years in designing cities, building homes, and burying the dead. Deeply rooted in Taoist and shamanic origins, it is not simply a list of directives for building auspicious structures or arranging interiors for good luck - it is the art of reading the patterns of the universe and living in harmony with the environment. Today, as people become aware of the need to recover an intimate relationship with the earth and the ecosphere, feng-shui offers a set of pragmatics in choosing a home, locating a business, developing ecologically sensitive land use, and planning a harmonious neighborhood. Eva Wong offers comprehensive instructions in the basics of feng-shui, with step-by-step guidance in analyzing sites, buildings, and interiors. Readers are given a glimpse into the history of fen-shui from prehistoric to modern times through stories of shamans, magicians, Taoist mystics, and scholars. They are introduced to the theoretical foundation of feng-shui as they learn about Taoist cosmology, the Chinese calendar, and the pa-k'ua or eight-trigrams diagram. They will learn how to make and read a geomantic compass, a device from the tenth century that is still used today. They will also be drawn into a world where nature is sentient and animated by energies. With the completion of the curriculum, readers will have a working knowledge of how to live harmoniously with these energies of the earth and environment.
