“So you do Feng Shui for a living…”

Today on top of this castle tower showed below* we came to study the “Xing Shi” (Form and Configuration) of this defence stronghold as part of the Unit 2 Feng Shui Professional Practitioners Course. Lidia Sarek, our Polish host, told us a funny story about modern understanding of Feng Shui.
She said she went to see a client earlier this year, the husband said to her, “So you do Feng Shui for a living, you know, I don’t believe in this superstitious rubbish!” Lidia tried her best to be polite and replied, “Oh, is that so? What do you do for a living?” The man replied, “I do something very different, I look for potential sites for MacDonald.”
Being a good-natured person Lidia just smiled. Little did the man know he is in the same profession as Lidia and if he bothers to study a little bit of Feng Shui, it might even improve his professional skill!
* Lipowiec Castle – built at the end of 13th. century, by Cracow bishop Jan Muskata. The fortress was intended to be the church’s administration centre and at the same time a frontier watchtower. It sits on a solid Black Turtle to the north and has a closer and higher Azure Dragon to the left and a lower and broader White Tiger to the right, overlooking a wide Mingtang to the south with the distant mountains holding the qi back towards the Xue, the Feng Shui Spot – a classic Siling model in the landscape.
