Plans, intentions, and a gift

Plans for Clarity in 2017…

I don’t have my calendar filled in with a Grand Plan for the Year, because you know how those turn out. (I’m learning that they turn into colour-coded confetti by about mid-February.) But I have some plans for the first few months, and it occurred to me you might be wondering what’s available when. So…

In January 2017 I’ll be opening for readings – the full reading service, not the smaller I Ching chats which are more or less always available (though not so much for the next couple of weeks, because Christmas). The still point round the turning of the year, the quiet before Spring, is a natural time to go deeper.

I read for at most half a dozen people at a time: I’ve found that’s a good way to ensure I have plenty of time and energy to work with each reading, mull it over and follow where it leads without hurry. The first thing I do when I open is to email people who have downloaded ‘Ways of Opening’ (a guide/ helper for finding your question), so if you’d be interested in a reading in January, please download a copy now.

In February 2017 I’ll start the class on Reading for Others. This will be very small, probably a ‘beta’ version (ie it’s inexpensive and participants will be involved in shaping and improving the class), since while I’ve been doing this for a (very) long time, I’ve never taught it before.

I won’t start anything else while ‘Reading for Others’ is still running, but later in the year I’d really like to run a Foundations Class again. The Foundations Course is always available, of course, and if you’re part of Change Circle you can always get my help with it in Yi Academy or by phone/Skype. But that’s still not the same as being part of a class, embarking on the course together and getting to know one another along the way. So… Foundations Class, later.

And other intentions…

  • share more with you (remembering my reading for the year – zhi 21)
  • take more breaks
  • spend more time with people and with Yi, and a whole lot less time in website-wrangling

A gift

Here are two downloadable ebooks I put together for you:

  • Book of Stories: an anthology of my posts on this theme over the past year, describing how you can use the stories Yi tells to understand your readings.
  • Questioning: seven articles about how we open our conversations with Yi – a mix of experiences, thoughts and suggestions

Both are pdf files, so right-click and chose ‘save target as’ or the equivalent to download them.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you!

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
