Course description

This course provides teachings about the I-ching (Book of Changes). We mainly deal with the method of divination and its usage.

I-ching is part of Taoist teachings as it offers the means to know the future development of the actual tendencies. As Lao-tzu once said: a Tao student should know what future brings with the help of I-ching based oracle. By doing so he is able to adapt to the unexpected beforehand.

This course is the level two of our three-level Taoism initiation course. It is followed by level three - dealing with the Taoist meditation methods - and preceded by level one - dealing with the Taoism basics. If you take all the three levels at once you benefit from a discount.
