Through his interpreter, Professor Lin inquired about my training and after a brief conversation he asked me if I had read Sarah Rossbach’s book “Feng Shui – The Art of Placement.” I said I had and found it interesting. He then asked me if I would like to study Feng Shui with him as one of his “Senior Students”. Not knowing what Senior Student meant, I accepted. That was the beginning of my Feng Shui career.
Curiously, at the dinners we attended after workshops, he would always introduce me as “my old friend” to his Chinese followers.

I had only known him less than a year. His answer floored me. The person next to him translated in broken English: “In another time he worked for you, this time you work for him.”
