feng shui practitioners, and in America it is now catching
on as well. In Singapore much of the businesses of the city

Taiwan the owners hire a feng shui consultant to create the
best position for the main entrance. It is the belief of prominent
businessmen that several major buildings in downtown Taipei
remains unoccupied because they failed to follow the dictates
of the feng shui consultants.

advice of Feng Shui professionals. Some of these people and
organizations are the likes of Donald Trump, Virgin Airlines,

to create harmony, and increase productivity as well as liberating
energy and understanding its principals in relation to selecting
and building the most auspicious edifices.
