HOW TO FENG SHUI KNEW My first contact with Feng Shui was in 1997 in London at a conference where there were hundreds of people. The lecturer was Lillian Too, the great Asian woman who brought the Feng Shui to the West. In 1998 I made our first trip to Australia, visiting for the first time a truly fabulous country, where the foundations are based on the basic principles of Feng Shui, which is called Singapore. In Australia the same year, make a Vocational Training on Feng Shui. In 1998 visit to China in search of the origins of Feng Shui, the city of Beijing, where particular visit the Forbidden City and the Great Wall of China, among other emblematic locations of Feng Shui. That same year and after a long walk to study the subject Feng Shui, beginning Vocational Training in Feng Shui, only in Portugal. Because in life nothing happens by chance, in 2005 Lillian Too visit in their own home, in Malaysia, in Kuala Lumpur now as a longtime friend.

We awoke this morning to find Mrs. Myers' report of Day 1 in China: "We have just settled back into the hotel after a long (and truly excellent) day in Beijing. Today we started nice and early with a not-so-American breakfast in our hotel, and then spent the morning in Tiananmen Square, and then on to the Forbidden City, which is much larger than one might imagine. Our tour guide did an excellent job filling us in on the history surrounding both, as well as treated us to a delicious peach ice cream as a way to cool off mid-day. From the Forbidden City we ventured into the oldest neighborhood in Beijing, where families have literally lived for generations (the home we visited, the family has owned and inhabited for 5 generations . incredible!) Via rickshaw, we arrived at a local home for lunch, which was unanimously voted the most delicious food we have eaten thus far by all. We returned via rickshaw to the bus, which took us to a Buddhist temple, where we paid our respects with incense, and then learned a ...

A Grand Master, an Imam, a rebel freedom fighter, a secret society member, the former head of the most prestigious Martial Arts orders in China, the enticer of the European colonialists, a medicine man and a man of spiritual power, A Sufi.

If you had to narrow down the land marks in Asia to just 8 the Temple of Heaven has got to be up there as one of them. A complete masterpiece of Ancient Chinese culture, the Temple of Heaven, literally the Altar of heaven, is a magnificent and colourful complex of religious buildings, dating back to the Ming Dynasty in 1420 A.D. The temple was built as a sacred site to offer sacrifice to heaven, and no Chinese emperors at the time dared to build their own residence bigger than this dwelling for heaven. Set in beautiful gardens and surrounded by historic pinewoods, the cult buildings within the complex symbolise the relationship between heaven and earth; the northern part depicts heaven, and is designed to be semicircular and higher than the southern part, which is square-shaped and lower, symbolising earth. Located south of the Forbidden City – this UNESCO World Heritage site also has a 193-metre Echo Wall that utilizes the theory of sound wave, in that people on both ends of the wall could whisper and ...

Thoughts from China- There is a Chinese saying, "He who does not reach the Great Wall (of China) is not a true man". This weekend I become a TRUE MAN!! I am leaving Linyi a little after 4:00 in the afternoon, traveling by slow train (as opposed to the high speed train) in a sleeping compartment arriving in Beijing at 5:30 in the morning. A five minute walk to my hotel, check in, store my luggage, and I am off sightseeing. Saturday, Great Wall of China. I am going to get 4 people to make OHIO on or within sight of the wall, you Buckeyes know what I mean. Back in the afternoon to my room, a nap, and then dinner. Sunday morning, breakfast, and then off to Tiananmen Square. There are many things to do within walking distance: Mao's mausoleum, Forbidden City, Imperial Palace, a museum, and shopping for Chinese art plus other souvenirs. Then back to my hotel to pick up my suitcase, dinner, and an !!:30 PM train back home arriving around noon on Monday. I decided on taking the slow train because I ha ...

About 11 months ago our group toured China. On a very rainy day we went to Tiananmen Square before entering the Forbidden City. It was huge, impressive and without a single word from our guide about what happened there on this day in history. We asked later why no mention? His reply, "it was a minor event and we have to let more time pass to see if it had any impact on Chinese history."

We are home now from a fantastic 15 day holiday in China. Our first holiday since our honeymoon 25 years ago! We travelled with the local Tai Chi group (other half is a member of the group) and had an amazing time. We visited Beijing including Tiananmen Square, the Palace Museum (The Forbidden City), the Temple of Heaven, the Summer Palace and the Sacred Way to the Ming Tombs. The highlight was walking on the Great Wall! We travelled on the Bullet train to Xi'an and saw the Terracotta Warriors - wow! Next we went to the Shaolin Temple at Dengfeng (the birthplace of Kungfu) where we stayed for four nights to train Tai Chi with a master who is a Shaolin Monk. We stayed in the Zen International Hotel which is on the Shaolin Temple grounds and were the first westerners to stay there - what an experience! Then it was off to Wudangshan and training with a Taosist Tai Chi master. Wudangshan is the home of Tai Chi. After Wudangshan we flew to Shanghai for three nights before flying home to Australia.

Flight MH370: Memories of the stories left from the last day ... Kuala Lumpur: One morning, many stories. The three women woke before sunrise that day, leaving their hotel while it was still dark and boarding a small plane in Katmandu, Nepal, for a look at Mount Everest. They were Chinese retirees, avid photographers ending a two-week tour of the Himalayan nation. Late that night, after a stopover in Kuala Lumpur, they would head home to Beijing. The Indonesian couple woke up at home, a tidy two-story concrete-walled house down a small alley in the city of Medan. A taxi arrived a few hours later to take them to the airport, starting them on a journey to a long-anticipated vacation without their children, a trip to China to see the Great Wall and Beijing's Forbidden City. In Kuala Lumpur's Chinatown, the artists and calligraphers headed down to breakfast about 8 a.m. Some had been celebrating the night before, downing shots of the powerful Chinese liquor called Xifengjiu at the end of almost a week exhibi ...

How intriguing name…Forbidden City…I’ve always wondered why it is called like that. What was forbidden in that ancient city? Well, now days, almost everyone knows that the Forbidden City was named that way because no one can entered there, except the emperor, his concubines and household. It is a ve...

"The Bleak Shore" -Fritz Leiber "So you think a man can cheat death and outwit doom?" said the small, pale man, whose bulging forehead was shadowed by a black cowl. The Gray Mouser, holding the dice box ready for a throw, paused and quickly looked sideways at the questioner. "I said that a cunning man can cheat death for a long time." The Silver Eel bustled with pleasantly raucous excitement. Fighting men predominated and the clank of swordsmen's harness mingled with the thump of tankards, providing a deep obbligato to the shrill laughter of the women. Swaggering guardsmen elbowed the insolent bravos of the young lords. Grinning slaves bearing open wine jars dodged nimbly between. In one corner a slave girl was dancing, the jingle of her silver anklet bells inaudible in the din. Outside the small, tight-shuttered windows a dry, whistling wind from the south filled the air with dust that eddied between the cobblestones and hazed the stars. But here all was jovial confusion. The Gray Mouser was one of a doz ...

DISCOVER THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF KOMBUCHA MUSHROOM TEA Wednesday, March 5th 7-8PM Kombucha Mushroom Tea was first recorded in China two thousand years ago. Called “The elixir of immortality” or “The Divine Tshe,” it was described as an “elixir for eternal youth and good health.” In China it was exclusively consumed in the Forbidden City, whose occupants were thought to be immortals. In 414 AD, Dr. Kombu, a Korean healer, named it Kombucha and introduced it to Korea and Japan. Today Kombucha has spread around the world and is used to combat a huge variety of ailments, including cancer, high cholesterol, and aging. John Thompson has been making and consuming Kombucha for 19 years. He will be bringing several Kombucha starters (scobys) for those who wish to make it themselves. John does energy healings and publishing/editing consultations. He and his wife Prema Lia publish a renowned line of inspiring and award winning children’s books Visit our Redmond Retail store this Wednesday to learn more ...

rense.com The Truth About Mao Mass Murderer, Womaniser, Liar, Drug Baron: Book Paints Horrific Portrait By Jonathan Mirsky The Independent - UK 5-29-5 On the cover of Mao: the Unknown Story is a tiny photograph of the Chairman. It is wrinkled and tattered. Until Mao Tse-tung's death in 1976 anyone found with such a damaged photograph of the Great Helmsman, Teacher, and Red Red Sun in Our Hearts faced possible death and certain detention. In 1981, I met a woman in Nanjing who had found a bag full of Mao badges in the gutter - five years after his death - and had taken them to the nearest police station so she could not be blamed for possessing cast-off memorabilia of the Great Helmsman. Indeed, the huge portrait of Mao with his immense mole still hangs, gazing into the distance, over the gate from Beijing's Forbidden City into Tiananmen Square. Can this be, still? Mao Tse-tung, who was responsible for the peacetime deaths of perhaps 70 million of his fellow Chinese? It is amazing that only now has Mao rece ...
