The Inner Workings of Classical Feng Shui
June 25, 2011
I am going to give a talk on the inner workings of classical Feng Shui next week (Wednesday 29 June, 2011 @ 8pm.) for the Golden Gate School of Feng Shui in Berkeley California USA.
The practice of Feng Shui involves many disciplines and because of its multidisciplinary nature involving a different kind of thinking, it is very confusing for a lot of people, especially those who are not familiar with the Chinese culture and language. This talk attempts to answer two very fundamental, but not so simple though it appears to be so, questions about the very nature and the practice of Feng Shui – “What is Feng Shui and how it works in practice?”
In the presentation, I will draw on the history and philosophy of Feng Shui to show you what is Feng Shui in its essence, and the different layers made up its contents and structure so you can get to appreciate the core layer of Feng Shui. Feng Shui can only be practiced properly if we know what it is and how it works, otherwise it can easily be turned into a superstition open to exploitation by charlatans. This we should try to avoid.
I have been a practicing Feng Shui architect/consultant as well as a teacher for over 30 years now, and it took me nearly two third of that time to figure out what it is all about and how it works. I would like to use this opportunity to share with you what my experience and my Xinde 心得 or what my heart/mind have perceived over these years working at the coal-face of Feng Shui, in learning, in teaching and in practicing this ancient Xuanxue 玄學 or “The Study of the Mysterious”.
If you are nearby please come and join us and please feel free to ask questions at the end of the presentation. See you!
