I Ching Poetry

Lately, I’ve been exploring ways to immerse myself in readings more completely – and I Ching poetry seems to be a way to do that. Of course the book is poetry itself, but the attempts I know of to translate it directly into rhyme basically reduce it to jingles. I linked the other day to… Continue Reading

Orchestral I Ching

This started out as an audio recording I made while I was washing up one night and just felt like ranting aloud. Unfortunately this means the sound is punctuated and/or drowned out entirely by assorted splashings and clashings of pans. I would re-record it – except that I haven’t altogether got my voice back yet.… Continue Reading

The Modern Poet’s I Ching, by Thom Williams

Like that one, it’s more personal-journal-ish than I usually write, but I hope it’ll provide a couple of ideas you can use yourself. (Please let me know what you think of this style of entry!) Inspired – not… Continue Reading

Heaven to Earth I Ching

Heaven to Earth I Ching A link to a home-published I Ching book I hadn’t seen before. As far as I can make out from a quick look through the website (in other words – I may have this completely wrong) the book offers a new way of choosing which lines and hexagrams to read… Continue Reading
