Resonance Journal update!

Version 1.5 of the Resonance Journal is ready! This version includes Volume 1 of Bradford Hatcher’s Yijing – the full translation with commentary – as a built-in translation to explore via the hexagram browser and select there for use with your reading entries.

 If you already have the Resonance Journal installed, you must use the updater program to update your journal. Do not install the new version from the software download page over the top of your existing installation as that would delete all your entries!

How to update your journal

  1. Just to be safe, back up your journal. (Main menu, File > Back up journal entries – run the backup, then close your journal.)
  2. Download the Journal Updater program – JournalUpdaterTo1-5forWin.exe
  3. Double-click the downloaded file to run the installer and follow the steps given…
  4. …and when you get to ‘Select Additional Tasks’, do check the box for ‘create a desktop icon’
  5. When installation is complete, find and click the icon on your desktop – it’ll look like this: Journal updater desktop icon(If you’ve run updates previously, you might still have old copies of this icon on your desktop – ignore/delete those.)
  6. Reassure your computer again that you do want to allow this program or app to make changes, then navigate to your ‘Resonance Journal’ folder. (If you accepted the defaults when you first installed the journal, it’ll be under C:\.) Highlight the folder name and click ‘Open’.
  7. The updater will run, and you’ll get an ‘Update Complete’ message when it finishes.
  8. (And then you can uninstall the Journal Updater if you so wish.)

Good news for Mac users!

Resonance Journal 1.5 comes with a Mac-compatible version too. You can download this from here.

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… Continue Reading

New service: I Ching chat

New service: I Ching chat

I’ve just opened the (virtual) doors for a new I Ching chat service… What this is A 30 minute chat on anything I-Ching-related – a line you’re stuck on, a reading where you could really use a fresh perspective, an image or hexagram that keeps coming back, even a knotty problem that you can’t seem… Continue Reading

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
