Advanced Flying Star – A One Day Tutorial with Dr. Stephen Skinner
October 23rd at Shanghai Marriot Hotel Parkview
This one day pre-IFSC tutorial picks up from the workshop held in Melbourne last year. Once again it will focus on where Flying Star, Eight Mansion and other techniques fit into the whole practice of feng shui and sharpen your current understanding and practice.
One of the problems with the Western reception of feng shui is that the subject appears to be a series of unconnected formulae. This is quite the reverse of the Chinese view, where everything (be it TCM, face reading, divination, astrology, geography or feng shui), all have their roots in the same archetypal theories of yin yang, 5 Elements, 8 trigrams or 12 Branches.
Sadly the teaching of feng shui in the West has often chopped up the subject into bite sized pieces and the connecting links are not always taught.
However once you discover the information that bridges the gaps in your knowledge and gives you the historical and conceptual background that ties it all together, then you will better understand the logic behind each part of the techniques.
Please note that if time does not allow us to reach all topics then they will be carried forward to the next tutorial.
