Feng Shui Diaries
Does Feng Shui really work? How can it work for you?
Does Feng Shui really work? How can it work for you? These touching, informative and funny diaries of one of the few Feng Shui men tell very human stories of why people call on him in and the changes that result. The Feng Shui Diaries cover the human stories of why people call Richard Asworth in and what changes as a result. In his own words; "Sometimes I move a mirror, sometimes furniture. Usually I place water very precisely. Generally, I talk a lot. Stuckness, depression, addiction, ovarian cysts, infertility, lack of success are all grist to the mill, but above all, relationships: Moira wanted to be free of her ex-husband. I suggested the first step might be to stop sleeping with him. The house was full of shields and discs, yang metal symbols that in Chinese terms mean "mature man". Simply putting these on e-bay would move mountains." The Feng Shui Diaries shows how feng shui works for ordinary people in ordinary situations. There is nothing intimidating or inexplicable about it. And theyre a good laugh.

Does Feng Shui appeal to you? Are you put off by all the prescriptive lists of what to do and what not to do? Then try this book. It's a diary of a Feng Shui man as he goes about his business, sharing his thoughts, his wisdom and his solutions. It's a readable, human, approach to this rather intellectual subject, and therefore makes it much more appealing. The fact that learning about Feng Shui can involve a lifetime's study is not so daunting with the insights that Richard Ashworth has to offer. ~ , Pilgrim's UK

Join him as he visitsmodern China to discover what - if anything - is left of this ancient tradition in its country of origin. ~ , Cygnus Review
Richard Ashworth's book proves there's more to the ancient Chinese art than red doors and bamboo. As a professional Imperial feng shui man, Ashworth spends most of his time helping people resolve problems by interpreting and improving their home environment. The book is a journal-style memoir of his day-to-day encounters, rather than a how-to manual. However, by reading about Ashworth's client interactions youâ€™ll gain insight into the parallels that shape his feng shui practice, and hopefully, gain a little ancient wisdom in the process. ~ , Philidelphia STYLE Magazine

This is a valuable addition to the available literature on the complex and sometimes elusive study of the fascinating world of the Ba Zi, the Eight Characters which govern our destinies. ~ Derek Walters, Author of The Complete Guide to Chinese Astrology
