Discover Beijing: A Modern City with an Imperial Past

I am very honored to be called by Li Li from the Sino-American Friendship Association to be interviewed for a program entitled, Discover Beijing, sharing my feng shui knowledge of famous Chinese landmarks such as the Forbidden City.

It was fun to prepare for the interview; I went through my travel archives of my feng shui study trips in China as well as researching my select library of books. Even though the interview took over an hour, I am shown for a very brief time; here is the link to the program: Discover Beijing (Part 2)

Beijing – China, one of the world’s fastest rising cosmopolitan cities and a world-famous imperial capital, has a history of 3,000 years with more than 860 years as the capital of China. This show will take you to the capital of an ancient empire, steeped in thousands of years of culture. A city bursting with life and opportunity.

A people celebrating their past while embracing the future. A place to inspire and a journey to experience. This is Beijing, a modern city with an imperial past.
