WHAT IS THE BOOK OF CHANGES
Known in the West for over three hundred years the I Ching, or Book of Changes, is the most popularly recognized Chinese wisdom book.
It can serve as a guide to an ethical life or used as an oracle to shine light on a current question or situation and give indications of future developments. One could say that the I Ching is a mirror of one’s own concerns or expectations. It does not convey truths and or predict a future, but inspires you to find answers within your own unconscious, hidden level.
HOW DOES THE BOOK OF CHANGES WORK?
Essentially, the Book of Changes is a system used to indicate future trends and developments. More importantly, though, it is a book of wisdom. Because the readings it gives are simple, yet elegant, profound and intuitive, it is often consulted for its advice and insight into human nature.
Traditionally an oracle is cast using a set of 50 yarrow sticks. In our personalized inquiry and reading, lasting approx. 45-60 minutes we will use a set of ancient coins to compose a hexagram consisting of 6 lines based on the seemingly random results of the coin toss. We will then explore the explanation of the hexagram from The Book of Changes together and discern the indications of future developments it suggests.
