I’ve been brainstorming, planning and consulting with Yi, and have settled on this much-simplified choice of I Ching reading services:
- Discussing and clarifying your situation and the best question(s) to ask: free
- 10 minute summary reading by phone Â£7
- In-depth consultation, by phone or email, Â£47
There are two major changes here. First, I’ve removed email readings as a separate, mid-price category, because they actually take more time and energy than phone readings. I suspect this is because divination is naturally an interaction between two people, and it’s harder to create that when you have to ‘interact’ with a computer screen first. And secondly, the in-depth consultation will now be able to include a supplementary, related reading or two if that’s needed to set the first reading in context. I’m looking for other ideas to improve the in-depth readings – suggestions welcome.
The big purpose of all this is actually not just to work for more than minimum wage (not that that’s a bad idea… 😉 ). It’s to free up time and energy so I can really get to work producing more information and guidance for people to get to know the I Ching for themselves. This is a truly exciting prospect for me. Seeing the effect of the I Ching course has been a delight already, but there’s plenty of scope yet to reach further. Imagine a world where… say… one person in a hundred was open to the wonders of synchronicity – had that sense of an extra dimension of meaning to life, of being ‘at home’ in a living cosmos… Or one person in ten…
