[Your favourite celebrity] used Feng Shui for a day, here's what they found
After a while, the mainstream's fascination with superficial spirituality boarders on cultural appropriation... and while it can be great that such ancient principles are finally getting recognition, just how much do we really know about Feng Shui and Ancient Chinese philosophy?
Since the 70s, Feng Shui has been blowing up in the West, and it feels like every instagram guru is pushing it right now. But outside of "lucky" and "unlucky" directions that "resonate" with you, how does this ancient art form actually work? And more importantly, how do YOU actually go about understanding the theory and practice of traditional Feng Shui?
Today, we have something pretty exciting...
We dived into some of the Ancient Chinese wisdom books about Chi, Feng, Shui (yes, they're separate words!) and Astrology and discovered something amazing. The Book of Burial, Book of the Tomb, the I Ching and Zhou Commentaries explain Chi from their own perspective... not a modern Western one.
And it's no stretch to say that understanding the true nature of Chi has helped us up our Feng Shui gains like crazy, while staying authentic and respectful to the traditional texts themselves.
So come and join us today as we explore the secret and meaning behind the Art of Wind and Water and how you can use it in your own life right now! If you want to harmonise your environment and create a state of passive abundanceand harmony, you won't want to miss this episode.
