How to Use the I Ching (Hardback)

William Adcock


This book deals with harnessing the ancient powers of the oracle for divination and interpretation, that is shown in over 150 photographs. It is an accessible guide to an ancient Chinese art, offering a more harmonious approach to life, with an awareness and a respect for the influences acting upon us. It provides interpretations of the trigrams, giving spiritual guidance for all kinds of questions and dilemmas. It features over 250 beautiful photographs and specially commissioned illustrations accompany the text, aiding interpretation of the I Ching. In its original form, the I Ching was devised by the ancient shaman of China over 4,000 years ago. Developed by the legendary first emperor of China and then the venerable philosopher Confucius, it evolved into a sophisticated oracle that has bought wisdom and guidance to generations in both the East and the West. The I Ching, or 'Book of Changes', is believed to be a complex reflection of the natural world. Each of the eight fundamental forces of nature - heaven, earth, fire, water, thunder, wind, mountain and lake - are represented by trigrams. These are matched together to make hexagrams, and in a reading the hexagrams that you make as you throw the symbolic coins will give you spiritual guidance to deal with your question or dilemma. This book provides all you need to call upon the wisdom of the Sage, and will help you to intuitively find the right path to follow.
