Overview

The I Ching, translated variously as the Book of Changes or the Classic of Change, is perhaps the oldest writing on philosophy, cosmology, divination and self -transformation in Chinese civilization. It is one of the treasures of ancient Chinese literature, used as a divinatory tool as well as an instrument to develop intuition and perception. The I Ching Workbook provides a fascinating overview of the I Ching including its history and legend, the symbolism of the 8 trigrams of natural energy, the meanings of the oracles of the 64 hexagrams, and methods for casting the I Ching. This illustrated workbook also explores the connections between the I Ching, oriental philosophy, and Chinese astrology, making it appropriate for beginners but also rich enough for devotees wishing to expand their knowledge of this fascinating subject.
