A 10-lesson email course
As you know, Jung has dedicated much interest to the study of the I Ching (Book of Changes). Known as the oldest book of the Chinese tradition, consulted as oracle, I Ching was approached by Carl Jung as a method of divination (similar with astrology) and also as a collection of archetypes illustrating his theory of the collective unconscious. Last but not least, Jung appealed to I Ching in order to prove his theory of synchronicity.
Jung met Richard Wilhelm – the German translator of the Book – to discuss about its origins, method of inquiry and symbols. He himself consulted the book as oracle and even wrote an introductory study to the Wilhelm/Baynes English version, inspired by him.
Jungian analysts also show interest in the Book of Changes. They use it mainly during the cure, when in need to further predict the development of the individual treatment and its success or failure.
Unfortunately and despite Jung’s introduction, I Ching is not clearly understood. Its basic features point to the Taoist philosophy which is not familiar to the Westerners.
Also its functioning as oracle and mainly the interpretation of its answers are very difficult to handle. This is why we created this 10-lesson course explaining in plain words the Book’s content, method of inquiry, and meaning of the answers.
Moreover, upon the completion of the course, you may ask for our help to work out your own interpretation of the answers and start your own I ching divination experience.
Benefits. Find out what is I Ching, the methods of consulting, the hexagrams and how to phrase the questions.
We also offer a few hints on how to understand the oracle’s answers.
