: Does anybody know the english conversion of Feng Shui?

"Feng shui (pronounced "fung schway") isn't just another one of those so-called "ancient Chinese secrets." Rather, it is the idea that individuals should live in harmony with their environment. Literally translated, feng shui means "wind and water." The ancient Chinese believed that if we live in balance with the order of the world (Earth's winds and waters), we could attract fortune and prosperity. That's good."
