‘Well Gatherings’: new weekly Yijing video chats

‘Well Gatherings’: new weekly Yijing video chats

It seems like a good time to provide another way for people to connect and help one another with/through Yijing readings. So I’ll be hosting ‘Well Gatherings’ – an hour of chat and sharing readings – via Zoom each Monday for the next month or so.

Who it’s for

Normally, meetings like this are just for Change Circle members, but these are for everyone in Change Circle or WikiWing. That way we limit it to people who are genuinely interested in the Yi (probably a good idea in these days of ‘Zoombombing’) but cost won’t be a barrier. If you’d like to join but are short of funds, just sign up for WikiWing and I’ll email you the link on the day.


Mondays at 6pm UK time, starting next week on April 6th. Click here to see what that is in your own timezone. I don’t know how long the calls will continue for, but at least until the end of April.


Zoom video chat. A month ago I’d have needed to explain what that is… probably not so much now, right? I’ve been using it for classes since before they were famous; it works beautifully and is nice and easy to use.

I’ll email the room link to WikiWing and Change Circle members each Monday.

To share a reading

(Only if you’re definitely coming to the next call, please!)

See this forum thread for what to post, and add a link!

These are called ‘Well Gatherings’ because of Yi’s answer when I asked, ‘What about this idea?’ – Hexagram 48 line 6, changing to 57:

‘The well gathers,
Don’t cover it.
There is truth and confidence,
Good fortune from the source.’

March 22nd: ‘Connecting with Imagery’ Workshop

March 22nd: ‘Connecting with Imagery’ Workshop

Consulting the I Ching? You will need… to know what you’re asking a sense of how the parts of a reading fit together, and to be able to get inside the oracle’s imagery. If you’re missing any of these, you’ll tend to get stuck and frustrated at some point – but anyone who’s missing #3,… Continue Reading

I’ll be opening for readings very shortly. To make sure you’re notified when I open and have a chance to book a slot, please sign up on the readings page for ‘Ways of Opening’, a pdf guide to finding your question. (And have a look through it – I hope you’ll find it helpful!) I’m… Continue Reading

Yijing Foundations Class (starting this Sunday)

Yijing Foundations Class (starting this Sunday)

Starting on Sunday, September 15th, a small group of like-minded students will embark on a 12 week journey from ‘The Yijing is fascinating, but I’m not really confident with it…’ to a fluent, dependable, individual relationship with Yi as guide and companion. (Might you be one of them?) This is the Yijing Foundations Class, and… Continue Reading

Forum Remodelling Coming Soon

Refurbishing? Remodelling? The I Ching Community will be migrating, fairly soon, to some new forum software. I don’t want to say, ‘We’re moving,’ because at the end of the process the forums will still be accessible at the same address as before. But they’ll look somewhat different and work somewhat differently, so there’ll be a… Continue Reading

‘Connecting with Imagery’: a free workshop

‘Connecting with Imagery’: a free workshop

For a really good understanding of your own Yijing readings, I think there are basically two things you need to know: How the parts of a reading work together. How to connect with its imagery. (Click here to skip this blog post and just register for the workshop.) The first of those can get a… Continue Reading

A free sample of the Paired Hexagrams course

I’ve had some questions about the Paired Hexagrams Course. Rather than just talking about it, I thought it would be better to show you some of it – so here’s the introductory lesson. It simply runs through the three kinds of pair, so you can see clearly what they are and how they differ. Then… Continue Reading
