Initiation into Taoism - Level 2 

I-ching Methods and Meaning
A 16-lesson course delivered through email


Course description

Taoism is a way of life inspired by the flow of natural phenomena (Alan Watts). It was fashioned by Lao-tzu (Master Lao) in his Tao-te ching (The Classic about the Tao and Te). It is mainly characterized by the urge to follow the Tao in order to attain one's goals and avoid failure, even premature death.

The ancient Taoists sages spoke about the one who follows the Tao as of a person who succeeded in accomplishing his/her life!

We designed a 3-level course on the Taoism with the thought of presenting this ancient way of life and its benefits to the today Westernern people.

This is Level Two - dealing with the I-ching (Book of Changes).

In short we explain what is I-ching and its usage as a divinatory method.

We give many examples of consultation aiming at helping you to handle the book and interpret its answers.

The next two levels deal with the Taoism basics and the Taoist Meditation methods. You may order all of them at once (there's a discount offer if you do so) or only this one.

Here are the lessons:

1. Basic Things One Must Know about Oracles
2. The First Encounter with the I-ching Oracle
3. Translations and Versions
4. Content of the Book
5. Usage of the Oracle (methods of asking questions)
