Monthly live community Zoom calls
Each month I'll offer a 2-hour live video call where—depending on the moment and what the I Ching refers to as the “demands of the time”—we will have space to explore suggested readings, ask questions about the practice, review recent readings and explore different interpretations, etc. Sometimes we may dive into someone's specific circumstances, or review the calendar sequence’s reflections on our current moment, or throw readings together and see what emerges—really, we’ll respond as authentically as we can in the moment, and follow the I Ching’s own lead as we continue to presence and witness the real-time reality of our experience with this remarkable and timeless teacher.
Forum & Support
Having a circle of fellow practitioners can offer immeasurable insight and value as we map our I Ching readings to the territory which we traverse. Sometimes just having other sets of eyes, viewing our circumstances unburdened by our own personal blinders or self-defense mechanisms, allows us to view our situations in a new light. That new light, in turn, reveals new possibilities for decisions, behaviors and actions—and these emergent innovations in self-expression can change our lives in profound fashion. It is my hope that this ongoing Community Study Group embodies a virtual community that allows this work to live and move within each of us as we walk this path of living in the world in ever-deepening self-awareness and capacity to offer our depth to the people and the world around us.

I never want money to be a barrier to a sincere practitioner’s ability to access my work. I always try to price my offerings fairly, and, I understand that some have more resources and some less--so I aim to be flexible in working with people to find the right amount for their circumstances.
