Beginners’ Course

Introduction: what you’ll learn

Welcome to Clarity’s I Ching course for beginners.

This is really for complete beginners: it starts absolutely from scratch, with no prior knowledge required at all, and by the end you’ll be able to cast and interpret your own readings.

(If you’re already comfortable with these basics but sometimes get stuck on interpretation, you might also want to look at the Foundations Course.)

The course starts with the fundamentals – what the I Ching is, and how it works – before you learn to cast a reading. This approach means that when you do cast a reading, you understand exactly what you’re looking at and can start to interpret with some confidence.

And finally, there’s a bonus section on questions, because clearer questions are the best way I know to clearer readings.
