"Feng shui is not magic. Nor is it a spiritual practice. . . . It is an ancient Chinese method of living in tune with the energies of the living earth."
Like other ancient Eastern practices that are adding rich new dimensions to American life, feng shui is both science and art. It is a system for arranging your living and working environment to promote the beneficial flow of chi, the dragon's vital cosmic breath, the fundamental energy of life itself.
