Overview


Harness Natural Energies to Improve Your Life

Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese art that helps us to live harmoniously with our environment. By applying its principles to your garden, patio, balcony, or backyard, you can revitalize your space in a natural way, and bring harmony and happiness into your life.

This highly accessible, practical book shows us how to observe the natural patterns and energies at work around us, and make use of them for our own benefit. Find out how to sense the flow of chi -- the universal life force -- in and around your garden. Does it flow freely, indicating health and abundance, or is it blocked? Learn how to determine the balance of yin and yang, and how to interpret the shapes and colors of the five Chinese elements.

The Feng Shui Garden shows how by simply transforming a flowerbed, moving a garden seat, or re-routing a path you can create your very own special place. Improve the balance of energy in this way and you will also improve your life!

-- Highly visual, practical approach to using Feng Shui in any garden

-- Simple gardening solutions to various life problems

-- How to "read" the environment to create balance and harmony

-- Organic gardening techniques

-- Charts presenting age-old methods of moon and companion planting

Gill is also a Feng Shui garden consultant and lectures at the Feng Shui Society (for which she is also a book reviewer), The Feng Shui Association, and organic gardening groups in the United Kingdom. She has compiled her knowledge into the book, The Feng Shui Garden.
