- The Ancient Art Of Feng Shui - 1,640 words
The Ancient Art Of Feng Shui The Ancient Art of Feng Shui The History of Feng Shui Feng Shui has been practiced in China for thousands of years and is believed to have started in 2953 B.C. when Hu of Hsia found a tortoise that had a perfect magic square on its back.

Feng Shui was seen as a sacred power, so much so that in ancient China, only the privileged class had access to the knowledge.
