Welcome to I Ching Guidance


Join me in supporting the Pureland Project

The Pureland Project promotes physical and spiritual well-being through recognizing human interdependent relationship with nature. We leverage best practices to support Tibetan nomads in Tibet and spread their wisdom to the Western world. Our aspiration is to support sustainable living practices in Tibet & the Americas utilizing the ancient Buddhist principles of Pureland Meditation.

 

A Zen master named Gisan asked a young student to bring him a pail of water to cool his bath.

The student brought the water and, after cooling the bath, threw on to the ground the little that was left over.

“You dunce!” the master scolded him. “Why didn’t you give the rest of the water to the plants? What right have you to waste even one drop of water in this temple?”

The young student attained Zen in that instant. He changed his name to Tekisui, which means a drop of water.

“Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance and order and rhythm and harmony.”

This Web-site was started to honor the lessons the I Ching offers, through a guided , consultative process. I have personally consulted the I Ching for 35 years; last 10 years focused time to learn more about this ancient oracle’s history. The Internet is replete with many excellent websites dedicated to the study of the I Ching. You will find my favorites featured on this website.  The intention with IChing Guidance website is to provide a resource for those looking for practical advice. The IChing provides a glimpse into the moment for you. What is happening “Right Now” and how your actions or state of mind is manifesting external events.  The oracle can help provide important insight just as you may help yourself through a guided meditation practice with a qualified teacher.

 

I Ching Readings

Please send email to aforementioned address.  Include, “First reading request” in the subject line of email.   Included with your first interpretive reading is a reduced 2nd reading price of $20.00 redeemable until September 2018.

Why pay for a reading when so many sites offer free readings with references to ancient and deservedly revered texts from the likes of Confucius?  Great question. When I began consulting the Book of Changes, 35 years back, I  quickly realized I was out of my depth and needed qualified wisdom to intrepret each respective reading (hexagram). The I Ching is so much more than a divination tool, as it is steeped in  Taoist wisdom, Chinese history and Buddhist philosophy. Now 35 years later, with thousands of readings under my belt, more life lived, and research into this Sagely Oracle I humbly submit I am prepared to guide you through your reading with insight and perpective.

“As you wish to be happy, so you should wish others to be happy too. As you wish to be free from suffering, so you should wish that all beings may also be free from suffering. You should think, “May all living creatures find happiness and the cause of happiness. May they be free from suffering and the cause of suffering. May they always have perfect happiness free from suffering. May they live in equanimity, without attachment or hatred but with love towards all without any discrimination.”
