Yi as inspiration

Yi tends to shape people’s thinking, and when it gets hold of an artist or writer the consequences can be thoroughly interesting…

I mentioned Will Buckingham’s Sixty-Four Chance Pieces once before, but I’ll happily jump on this opportunity to recommend them again. These are 64 short stories, one inspired by each hexagram, drawing on real knowledge of and insight into Yi and a true delight to read. (And maybe to use as a divination companion, as who knows what synchronicities might open up in response?)

And… I’ve just heard of a new work that looks very interesting: Changing, by Richard Berengarten. It’s a remarkable undertaking: a poem inspired by the whole Zhouyi, line by line. Here’s a pdf sampler that includes the first two hexagrams – though we’ll need to read the whole book to discover how much he’s been able to integrate of the Yi’s own internal architecture. I look forward to it.

(If you’re in Chicago, there’s a book launch and reading from Changing in the University of Chicago’s Wieboldt Hall 408 on October 3rd at 4.30pm.)

The original two-pane reading is back

Short version: here it is, with my apologies. (I didn’t know anyone still used it!) Backstory: A few years ago I commissioned Ewald Berkers (creator of the I Ching Community’s indispensable hexagram search) to make us a new online I Ching. I did so because the old reading, the one in two frames, created a lot of… Continue Reading

Guide to the new website

As you can see… we have a new Clarity website. I really hope you like it! Here’s an explanation of the changes and a guide to the new site. Why change the design? Because the old one was old  – some nine years old, in fact – which means it wasn’t at all adapted for… Continue Reading

Change is coming…

or ‘Where did Hilary go?’ For the last several months, I’ve been working on redesigning the website – which has been so time-consuming that really only Change Circle members have seen much of me. It has all taken just a bit longer than expected… But we are almost there. All that’s left to do is the… Continue Reading

New Resonance Journal version

New Resonance Journal version

Just a quick note to say here is version 1.4 of the Resonance Journal. (Note: if you already have the software installed, you need to run this updater program instead.) It has a shiny new random entry option. You simply select ‘Review Random Entry’ from the ‘entries’ menu (or use the keyboard shortcut ctrl+m) to bring up a past entry. I’m… Continue Reading
