“The ancient Chinese sage Confucius said, upon first reading the I Ching, he regretted not having another fifty years of life to devote himself to the study of it. How fortunate young people today are for Julie Tallard Johnson’s work I Ching for Teens--they can begin a whole lifetime of learning the secrets of this marvelous work.”
--Stuart Alve Olson, author of T’ai Chi According to the I Ching

What college should I go to? Are my friends really friends? Will I ever get what I really want? Whether a meaningful tool for self-discovery or a fun way to spend time with friends, I Ching for Teens can help you answer the questions that are important to you. Using this up-to-date and down-to-earth translation of the ancient Chinese oracle that has been guiding people for more than 2,000 years, you will gain insight into a wide range of topics--from getting along with friends, parents, and romantic relationships to finding a direction for the future.

The I Ching can be used to divine the future, understand the present, and discover your own personal truth. With its ancient roots and widespread popularity, the I Ching has gone through many interpretations to keep its wisdom accessible and alive. This book, however, is the first translation and interpretation of this ancient text especially for teens.

The author provides guidance in the voice of a wise older sibling or a friend--someone who really understands the triumphs and turmoil of being a teenager--while retaining the insights, authority, and integrity of the original I Ching text. Each hexagram features stories, descriptions, quotes, and advice tailored to reflect and respect the unique nature of the teen experience. Whether you want to know the answers to the big concerns in your life, or the small ones, you will have a great time with this book as you develop your ability to seek truth and find answers from within.
