"Feng Shui translates as wind-water and is an ancient Chinese discipline whose philosophy can be traced back several thousands of years. Feng Shui first came into existence from the early time of people settling to farm animals and grow crops. It was initially used to identify safe dwelling places where families would be able to flourish and to determine the best burial sites for relatives. Later it was used to site palaces, government buildings and other public monuments. Even whole cities were designed and built according to core Feng Shui concepts."
