Too many readings?

Too many readings?

This was going to be a simple post A worried client emailed me. He’d just been organising his journal, listing all his readings, and found there were a whole lot more on one topic than he’d thought.

Presently I found myself up on the second floor, in front of a huge wooden carving of a seated Guan Yin. There she is in her perspex box, faded cracking wood… Continue Reading

The I Ching and badminton

My husband and I go out on the back lawn when the weather’s good enough, and play badminton. Let’s see… David’s six feet tall, lean and wiry and a natural athlete; I’m five foot two, about two stone overweight, and hopelessly uncoordinated – you know the one who can’t even catch a netball and who’s… Continue Reading
