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

Hexagram 43 is in the news…

…disguised as an archaeological discovery about Chinese pre-history. You might have seen the reports: someone has found clear evidence of a great flood in China. Here’s a good account of the discovery with a link to the full paper: in a nutshell, there was a great earthquake in about 1920BC which caused a landslide that completely blocked… Continue Reading

Hexagram 43 is in the news…

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

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

Book of stories: what follows

Book of stories: what follows

A few posts ago, I tried to list all Yi’s ways of telling stories:

  • those little one-line vignettes
  • allusions to the culture’s big stories – both history and myth
  • the individual steps of the Sequence of Hexagrams (‘Here’s how you reach this place.’)
  • the huge narrative arcs of the Sequence – ‘you are here’ on the grand scale
  • multiple moving line readings that unfold one line at a time
  • the ‘nuclear story’ within each hexagram
  • the stories told through the connections between readings

So I’ve written about the vignettes and the mythical allusions, and now we come to individual steps through the Sequence. Continue Reading

Yi debugs a plugin

Yi debugs a plugin

I’m not sure what kind of geek it takes to appreciate this reading – probably something quite extreme – but I think it’s brilliant and wanted to share. The background: a helpful programmer had fixed up a WordPress plugin for me, for use in the redesigned version of Clarity (still a work in progress). It… Continue Reading
