I Ching Methods and Meaning 

A 10-lesson email course for beginners


  • Course Description

I Ching (The Book of Changes) is the oldest book of divination used by Chinese emperors and princes. The book was translated into many modern languages and is used today as a prophetic guide. Unfortunately the meaning of its symbols and elliptic phrases are difficult to seize. Therefore we made this course designed for beginners.

In short, we explain in plain words what this Book is, how to use it as a divinatory means, and the way you should interpret its answers depending on the question asked.
