‘Enliven’ email course

Monday, December 15th, 2014

The blog has gone quiet lately, and is likely to remain quiet until I finish up the ‘Enliven’ email course. This is an eclectic mix of ideas for bringing your relationship with guidance to life (hence the title!) through keeping a journal. That includes dreams and synchronicities as well as Yi. The idea is to open […]

When Yi is neutral

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

A couple of months ago I wrote about ‘Essentials for Yijing readings‘ and included that old favourite hobby horse of mine: the commentary is not the answer, along with some examples of commentary – Wilhelm’s, Karcher’s and mine – that was decidedly not what the oracle said. All three examples I came up with were from lines where Yi’s original words […]
