What we're about

Yijing / I Ching (易經 / 周易) can be translated as the Book of Changes or the Classic of Changes. It is a collection of writings from ancient China, the oldest of which are around 3000 years old. The wisdom of the Yijing explores timeless themes of the natural world, constantly changing patterns of life, situations and action that are still just as relevant to life in the modern world.

Ancient Chinese rulers used the system for divination. Through consulting the I Ching system as an oracle, surprising insight can often be gained into situations and decisions.

This meetup is open to anybody with an interest in the Yijing. Whether your interest in the Yijing is historical, philosophical, spiritual, psychological or any other, you are most welcome to join us.

There is a wide range of experience in the society from newcomers to experts, so whether you only have basic knowledge, or have been studying the Yijing for years, come along!
