Although Feng Shui is a relatively new concept in the West, when we break it down into Feng / Wind, our breath and Shui/ Water, our sustenance, it becomes very basic. In reality, Feng Shui is about balance and harmony on all levels. This book explores its ancient wisdom through the elements, and how they shape us and our world from the inside out. Charlyne’s experience in the design world allows her a unique interpretation of its various applications. Whether used as a reference guide for design professions or a self help book to learn who we are, it teaches us on many levels how to create nourishing lives and environments.

The very first thing one does in all situations of life is orient oneself. Decisions of orientation, which are mostly made under uncertainty and the pressure of time, largely determine subsequent decisions. But what is orientation? The problems of orientation are as old as humankind, the word is used everywhere, but the concept has never been thoroughly investigated. The philosopher Werner Stegmaier comprehensively clarifies for the first time the conditions and structures of orientation, including those of our sexual, economic, media, political, legal, scientific, artistic, religious, moral, and ethical orientations. He thereby establishes a new philosophical language and offers a philosophy for our time. "As if I unexpectedly slipped down into a deep vortex, I am swirled around in a way that I can neither put a foot down, nor swim to the surface. Nonetheless, I will work my way out ... " (René Descartes, Philosopher) "As often as my speculation seems to lead me too far from the paved road of common sense, I stand still and seek to orient myself. I look back at the point from which we started, and I seek to compare the two guideposts I have." (Moses Mendelssohn, Philosopher) "A philosophical problem has the form: ‘I do not know my way about.’" (Ludwig Wittgenstein, Philosopher) "The second O, orientation – as the repository of our genetic heritage, cultural tradition, and previous experiences – is the most important part of the O-O-D-A loop since it shapes the way we observe, the way we decide, the way we act." (John Boyd, Military Strategist)

Orientalism Orientation And The Nomadic Work Of Pina Bausch

This book analyses the Tanztheater Wuppertal in the light of Edward Said's theory of Orientalism. Deirdre Mulrooney does this by examining how Pina Bausch and her company negotiate foreign cities in Viktor, Palermo Palermo, Tanzabend 2, 1991, and Ein Trauerspiel. Mulrooney makes these four scriptless productions available for academic investigation by transcribing them and taking them as a paradigm for Bausch's entire oeuvre. She thus illustrates how Pina Bausch has developed a transformative theatrical language which cultivates a new way of looking at the world.
