Literally translated as "wind-water," feng shui is the ancient Chinese art of working with the natural flow of an environment to create harmony in space. It is also a phenomenon across the United States, rapidly shedding its New Age, incense-and-candles image to become a generally accepted way of designing home and work areas for health, wealth, and prosperity. Yet, with all the expensive consultants and self-styled gurus out there, how do you find plain, reliable information on this exciting practice?

foreword
The Learning Annex Presents Feng Shui is the resource to create a more satisfying life. It is practical, inspiring, and direct.
These are exciting and challenging times. Change is the constant from which great opportunity emerges. In these times, you can test your way of thinking and expand in ways not previously imaginable.
Feng shui is the ancient art of placement. It is a tool that provides for clarity, strength, and flexibility. It supports you in your effort to live to your greatest potential. In the 3,000 years since its conception, feng shui has empowered thousands who have had the good fortune to meet the path of a feng shui master.
Feng shui is a vast subject. It requires years of study, contemplation, and experience to grasp the subtle nuances that give power to the work. And it can be applied very successfully with minor changes under the direction of a skilled teacher.
Meihwa Lin is a feng shui master and brilliant teacher. She lives the balance of insight and action to synthesize the teachings and make them most readily available. She is the work!
I had the opportunity to teach a class at the Metropolitan Institute of Interior Design-Feng Shui Training in the mid-nineties, where Meihwa was my student. She was smart, analytical, and committed to knowing the depth of the teachings from all angles. You might even describe her as relentless in her pursuit to know the core philosophy of the teachings.
As her teacher I was inspired, as I know she will inspire you. Meihwa reinforced for me the importance of continuing to forge forward in my own personal journey of healing, learning, and living the work of consciousness and place in order to make this world a better place for all.
You have the good fortune to find this book as part of your journey-or possibly this book has somehow found you. The Chinese say that luck is a combination of the will of heaven, your personal wishes, and how you bring the two together in life. The words and energies of this book make this wisdom accessible to you right now, so that life will flow most fortunately for you.
I encourage you to use this book as a guide. Know that, page-by-page, it will support you through good times and those of less fortunate circumstance. It will nourish your growth both personally and professionally.
I encourage you to meet Meihwa in person, if at all possible. Feng shui is an oral tradition brought most vividly to life in the presence of the master. You will experience the exuberant joy, wisdom, and depth of this captivating teacher.
The Learning Annex Presents Feng Shui successfully transmits the sacred energies passed down from teacher to student over the thousa
