Description

What could make a more appealing combination than the world's leading authority on feng shui and the inspiring insights of the sages from ancient China? Best-selling author Lillian Too shares this profound knowledge with you in an exquisitely illustrated introduction to the illuminating practices that make up her cultural heritage.  Chinese wisdom is a captivating blend of the three sources of energy that embellish our existence--heaven, Earth, and man. Some call this luck; others call it chi, or the life force. Go along the path of discovery, increasing your awareness with transcendental purification ceremonies, powerful forms of meditation, and other contemplative exercises. Open your spirit and mind to the seven pillars of the Tao, including the concepts of Yin and Yang and Continual Change; the eight trigrams and their symbolic overtones; the 64 hexagrams of space and time; and the Chinese pantheon of gods. Balance reason and logic to foster order, harmony, and happiness.  Within the multiple dimensions of Chinese thought, you'll uncover a wealth of practices and rituals that can improve every aspect of your being--and a series of guideposts to follow on life's journey, ensuring you live long, well, and wisely.show more
