What is Feng Shui?

Feng Shui originated in China as a guiding principle of balance in all things.  The literal translation of Feng Shui is "Wind Water," and while both allude to flow and movement, as in Chi, or Energy, they each differ in that the force of one moves independently and invisibly, creating movement, while the other flows dependent on its surroundings, feeding life.  This concept coincides with the yin and yang, a representation of seemingly opposite energies combining and complimenting each other to complete a balanced whole.  Feng Shui incorporates these core concepts into a practice using physical elements and their corresponding energies as a means to create harmony within people's lives through their communities, homes, bodies, and minds.

What types of Feng Shui practices are there?

Because Feng Shui as a literal term can cover nearly any practice that seeks to restore balance to a system, it is a challenge to answer this both accurately and thoroughly.  Today in China, for example, Feng Shui is used interchangeably within the contexts of everything from fortune telling to landscaping.  With that understanding, it would not be inaccurate to say that an acupuncturist practices Feng Shui within the field of the bodies of her clientele, or that a Nutritionist seeks to correct his clients' Feng Shui when making nutritional recommendations based on his observation of their bodies' manifested symptoms.  The difference is the pathways of practice and the methods used to clear and balance them.
   Feng Shui as it is primarily practiced today, however, refers to the practice of harmonizing energetic fields and pathways throughout personal and business environments.  The most commonly practiced Feng Shui is "Form" Feng Shui.  This is the form most think of when they hear of Feng Shui, and deals with the movement and placement of objects within the home to optimize chi flow.  While this is a beneficial practice, it comes secondary in importance to Foundational Feng Shui.
   Foundational, or classic Feng Shui, addresses the nature of the building itself, taking into consideration everything from when it was first build to the direction it physically faces, and places remedies to rebalance the energetic shifts that will have taken place over the course of the cycles of the building's existence.  Without this step, the energies within the building can not be corrected or optimized by form Feng Shui.
   Finally, Intentional Feng Shui, which should follow the former two after they've been completed in proper order, seeks to optimize and amplify beneficial energy towards specific intentions for those within the building.  This is can be accomplished through multiple means, and is usually a combination of factors in a service.
   The energies of Feng Shui in any environment do not exclude the body, as the body is considered a separate but equally important part of the fields in which we reside.  Because of this, we also consider the physical state of individuals' bodies, their personal charts, and general well-being and lifestyles along with that of the home.
