Initiation into Taoism - Level 2 

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


Course description

This is Level Two - dealing with the I-ching (Book of Changes) - of our 3-level Taoism initiation course. In short we explain what is I-ching and its usage as a divinatory book. We give many examples of consultation aiming at helping you to handle the book and interpret its answers.

The next two levels deal with Taoism - theaching on the basics - and the Taoist meditation methods.

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, that is the Creator and Sustainer of everything in the universe.

What is the benefit of following the Tao? Simply, avoiding failure. The ancient Taoists spoke about the one who follows the Tao as a person who attained his/her time, that is he/she succeeded in accomplishing his/her life!

We designed this 3-level course on Taoism with the thought of presenting to modern Westerners this ancient way of life and its benefits.
