Feng Shui: Living In Harmony

Feng shui, literally translated from the Chinese, means "wind, water" and traditionally symbolizes the space between heaven and earth the environment where we live.

The philosophy recognizes that house and garden should work together relative to life, health, wealth and happiness. In Hong Kong, the capital of feng shui, the ancient knowledge survived the Cultural Revolution that swept over Mainland China during the 60s and 70s.

This film looks at the roots of feng shui with masters demonstrating how the ancient Chinese science is still deeply rooted in the everyday lives of people living here.

To them feng shui is much more than simply a new trend in interior design. The influence feng shui has on their lifestyle and the mentality of Hong Kong people is told through comical, unusual and everyday stories.

    To the narrator: It is not pronounced "Fung Shoe-ee" like Hong Kong Fooey. It is pronounced "Feng Shway".

    I know, wouldn't you think he would have figured that out after hearing the masters pronounce it properly? Arrogance of the Western world do you think?

  3. Karl Jacobs

    It's pronounced correctly, in the Cantonese dialect, which is spoken largely in Hong Kong where most prominent FS masters reside and practice.

  4. Saretta

    But he also pronounced Taoism with a T when it is pronounced as D. But the information is good.
