Overview

Wu Zhongxian combines a deep knowledge of ancient Chinese traditions, a keen awareness of the needs of his Western audience, and a unique ability to communicate between the two. Such a combination is rare in a world of specialists and dilettantes, and his latest effort couldn't come at a more opportune time. There is always room for one more in his Celestial Tea House. I hope to see you there." -Bill Porter (Red Pine), author of Road to Heaven "You hold in your hands one of the finest interpretations of the I Ching on the planet. Master Wu artfully presents a clear and insightful interpretation of ageless wisdom for seekers of consciousness in these troubled times. I highly suggest brewing a cup of hot water, infusing it with your favorite blend of tea and curling up with this book." - Brian Luke Seaward, Ph.D., author of Stand Like Mountain, Flow Like Water The Yijing (I Ching) or "Book of Change" is one of the oldest of the Chinese classic texts and has held a key place in the Daoist tradition for thousands of years. Explaining the ancient Yijing system of prediction based on the Xiang (symbolism) and Shu (numerology) knowledge of Bagua (the eight basic trigrams), which have not previously been written about outside Chine, this book makes the Yijing accessible to the Western world in a new and fuller way. In the space of just eight days, Master Zhongxian Wu leads the reader towards a deep understanding of the Eight Trigrams of the Yijing and how to apply this knowledge in practical ways in daily life. Master Wu explores the numerology and symbolism of Yijing and clearly explains how the reader can use the Yijing divination system for themselves. This remarkable book provides a user-friendly eight day program that will be a fascinating read for anyone with an interest in learning more about the Yijing or Chinese philosophy and culture as a whole, as well as those who wish to learn how to use the Yijing for practical purposes..

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Wu, a longtime student of Chinese culture and religion, has created a densely illustrated and rather technical yet accessible introduction to the Yijing (I Ching) for the general reader; his system purports to get the beginner started in eight days. While its level of detail may be overwhelming for the true novice, his guide should prove useful to many. Sorajjakool (religion, psychology, & counseling, Loma Linda Univ.) approaches the notoriously elusive philosophy of Chuang Tzu (Zhuangzi) on behalf of the general reader. Without yielding up his Christianity, he sees the useful heart of the Chinese sage's wisdom as a kind of "wise passivity," abetted, if not exactly endorsed, by the likes of Heidegger and Krishnamurti. For most collections.
