Ever wanted to know the truth behind the ancient Chinese art of Feng shui? Feng shui geomancy, the technique of arranging objects to achieve your goals, has developed world-wide popularity, but in the West only a small part of the traditional Chinese theory is used.

Dr Michael Paton, an expert in Chinese history and the philosophy of science, will explain the foundations of this influential Chinese cultural practice,as well as examining some of the misconceptions that have arisen in the West concerning this ancient art. This talk will give the people of Sydney a greater insight into the original theory behind Feng shui, and will delve into the truth behind this well known but little understood concept.
