Live Immersive Course October 11 - November 22

The Book of Changes is one of the oldest books and oracle traditions in the world, and an unparalleled resource in successfully navigating life’s challenges and complexities. But it can be very difficult to access because the process can be confusing, and the concepts can take some getting used to! That’s why it is so crucial to have an experienced guide--and that’s why I am offering this new live immersive 7-week course. Please join me on the adventure of a lifetime!

My Course

I want to help you establish what I have enjoyed for 40 years: direct access and a working relationship with what has been one of the most consistently helpful teachers I’ve ever had: the I Ching, or Book of Changes. This is a practical, hands-on program. We will explore important conceptual frameworks undergirding this ancient and astounding oracle--but primarily, we will be rolling up our sleeves and diving into what reveals itself in the day-to-day practice of working with this profound map of the cosmos. I’ll be sharing it with you the way I learned when I was young: the old-school, learn together while doing approach!

So, what is the I Ching about, anyway?

The I Ching posits change as life’s only constant, and using it helps us better understand and master the eternal laws at work in all change. While things are in their beginning stages, they can be influenced by our choices and behavior.  By learning to recognize situations in their germinal phases, and by aligning our will with what the times demand of us, we can act to shape our fate. The Book of Changes provides a practical roadmap to living in harmony with Reality and making the best of uncertain situations. The I Ching represents a rigorous method through which we can study the dynamics inherent in our present circumstances, especially when our lives are in flux and turmoil. Through careful scrutiny of our own character, attitudes and motives, as well as external events, we work to bring into fruition the results we desire to experience.

A note on money and cost

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 people (and companies) have more resources and some less, so I aim to be flexible in working with people to find the right amount for their circumstances.
