Overview

The I Ching is the oldest and most respected oracle or divinatory system in the world. It has helped people for 2500 years to connect to the Way or Tao and experience their guiding spirit. There are currently two kinds of translations available which offer conflicting interpretations -- the popular Confucian version and an earlier version called Zhouyi. Reconstructed by twentieth-century scholars and archaeologists, Zhouyi presents the highly imaginative world of myth and ritual that is the hidden base of thousands of years of Eastern thought. Now, for the first time ever, and after years of detailed research and study, Stephen Karcher fuses these two traditions using modern scholarship and archaeological and linguistic research, along with a wide background in Eastern philosophy and comparative religion, and presents them to the modern Western reader in a comprehensive, accessible and vivid new form. Total I Ching is a complete oracle with instructions for immediate use in all life situations. It is also the first translation to detail the mythology of the divinatory system, the Myths for Change, offering a revolutionary new approach to the world's oldest wisdom tradition.
