I CHING CLASS 06/29/2014 http://longevity-center.com/i-ching-class/ Wed, 02 Jan 2013 19:20:52 +0000 http://longevity-center.com/?p=1404 This class introduces students to the practice of the I Ching for self-cultivation.

The I Ching system was created by the ancients from their careful observations of nature. We ‘moderns’ can use the sixty-four hexagrams found in the I Ching as a predictive tool to enhance our lives and reconcile our spiritual and physical selves.

We will be utilizing the text “The Book Of Changes and The Unchanging Truth” published by Hua-Ching Ni.

Please bring your own copy of any I Ching if possible; also, you will need 50 sticks, such as BBQ skewers.
