Hello to this wonderful community. This is my first post and it is a question for you. I teach in a Yoga and Martial Arts school (www.threebattles.com) and I remember reading a hexagram years ago that really sums up the process in these traditional practices - but I can't find it! Can you help? The one I'm remembering describes a kind of progress through the lines: something like, in the first line the protagonist is living in her head and things aren't going well, progressing down through her body until the last line, the most auspicious, with the protagonist more grounded in her feet. Does that ring any bells for anyone? Thanks!

Your description with the first line as head and last line as toes doesn't cause any hex to jump out from my memory at the moment. (the book is only 64 pages long, take another peek)
Also, the toes are sometimes symbolized in the first line and the head in the sixth.
(and the other body parts in between by lines 2-5, working from the ground up.)
There are many applicable lines in different hexagrams that do and can refer to self defense or martial arts practice and other forms of self cultivation and self preservation.

When you find the hex you were thinking of,
let us know.

Cheers.

In moving the thread over here you left the thread with my post in it over there so I am copying it over here I said there.......so now it looks like it's my thread but it isn't

Well in hexagram 31, 'Influence', line 1 starts in the toes and by line 6 ends up in the jaw and mouth. I can't think of one that starts in the head and ends in the feet. The feet are usually shown in line 1 as beginnings
