This Web-site was started to honor the life 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.

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 interpret 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 am prepared to guide you through your reading with insight and perspective.
Please take a moment to explore the Articles where you will find recent I Ching Interpretive readings and articles around the Buddhist journey and spiritual path. The I Ching Resource page is where you find recommendations for our top four I Ching Books and a YouTube video on the history of the I Ching (with a brief description for each of the 64 Hexagrams) and a straightforward, simple process for consulting the oracle.
There is a lovely story of a boy who goes to a Zen Master and asks, “Master, I know you have many students, but if I study harder than all the rest of them, how long will it take me to get enlightened?”
The master said, “Ten years.”
The boy said, “Well if I work day and night and double my efforts, how long will it take?”
The master said, “Twenty years.”
Now the boy talked of further achievement and the master said, “Thirty years.”
The boy replied, “Why do you keep adding years?”
And the master answered, “Since you will have one eye on the goal, there will only be one eye left to have on the work. And it will slow you down immeasurably.”
Ram Dass wisdom for today (October 24, 2018)
“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.”
