BRAND NEW BOOK - Published by Stephen Skinner (Editor of Feng Shui for Modern Living)

"Guide to the Feng Shui Compass: a Compendium of Classical Feng Shui"


We just thought you might like to know about a new and extraordinary book by Stephen Skinner that has just been published. It is the first detailed book on Classical feng shui to be published in English. 

It is a Guide to the Feng Shui Compass: a Compendium of Classical Feng Shui by Stephen Skinner. 
This is the very first complete guide to the Chinese lo pan ever to be published in English.

The book examines the contents of 75 lo p'an rings, and illustrates 50 of these in detail. How to buy and use a lo p'an is explained, so that even a complete beginner can become quite familiar with its use. At last a Guide to Classical feng shui, rather than just a repeat of the few formulas that have been rendered in English so far. The book includes a detailed history of feng shui in China. 

Every person, place, book title or technical term is rendered in English, Chinese, pinyin, and Wade-Giles.
