Western Feng Shui vs. Classical Feng Shui

Western Feng Shui - Mandarin ducks (2)

Western Feng Shui is an “art of placement” and was developed in the mid 60′s by a Tibetan monk, Thomas Lin Yun, who came to the US and believed Classical Feng Shui was too complex and too complicated for Westerners. He, then, founded the Tibetan Black Hat Society, and applied the same simplistic cookie-cutter version of Feng Shui for everybody, using the same 9 areas of a house without taking in consideration people’s ba gua, the date they moved in, the landforms, and really, it had nothing much to do with Classical Feng Shui any longer.

Western Feng Shui has diluted the essence of Classical Feng Shui. 

This “art of placement” uses lots of objects such as Mandarin ducks for love and marriage, Turtles for protection and stability, Koi fish for abundance, Chinese coins tied up with a red string for prosperity, crystals, bamboo flutes, purple pillows, you name it. They are very pretty but fail to bring good fortune.

In Classical Feng Shui, we do not use good luck charms.

In contrast, when strictly applied according to its ancient principles, Classical Feng Shui offers a large spectrum of formulas and tools to build wealth in all its aspects.
