Feng Shui
(pronounced Fung Shway)

This is an ancient Chinese discipline dating back at least 3,000 years, although its philosophy can be traced back to the teachings of the I-Ching from about 6,000 years ago.
Despite its origins, however, its core truths are central to human awareness and experience. When it is stripped of culture and ritual, and synthesised with other bodies of knowledge to meet the specific requirements of culture, geography climate, and human uniqueness, the essence of Feng Shui can be applied to any space and time.

Feng Shui means “wind and water”, the two most powerful forces of nature and fundamentals of life. The underlying principle of Feng Shui is to live in harmony with your environment so that the energy surrounding you works for you rather than against you. Feng Shui is a complex art involving many disciplines from site planning to psychology, based on the Chinese understanding of the dynamic flow of energy throughout the universe.
Feng Shui explains how the environment is which people live affects their lives. Beyond this, it is the art of using the environment to influence the quality of a person’s life.

Despite the fact Western World has not had the benefit of consistent person to place philosophy through the ages, many people, on discovering Feng Shui, recognise things that they always knew deep down to be true. Many successful people practice some form of Feng Shui without realising it. The integration of the external world and out internal environment is a cornerstone of most traditional philosophies.

We are not separate people from our planet and indigenous people have known of the relationship between the planet, our homes and one another for a long time. We have a conscious connection between the outside world and the inner world.
