I CHING READINGS
As a thirty-year practitioner, I offer guidance in the use of the I Ching (Book of Changes) to help clarify motivations and remove unconscious obstacles to reveal answers within your own heart. Psychologist Carl Jung said of the I Ching, “It offers neither facts nor power, but for lovers of self-knowledge, of wisdom… it seems to be the right book… Let it go forth into the world for the benefit of those who can discern its meaning.” I invite you to relax with a short shoulder rub, perhaps enjoy a cup of tea, and toss the coins. Using various translations, we will “discern meaning” and explore your emerging path. By donation.
