What is the I Ching?
The I Ching is an ancient Chinese book of divination and wisdom. It has been in continuous use for over 3,000 years. It is made up of 64 hexagrams. You will select one of these — the most popular method is to use three coins.
The hexagram has six lines, either solid (called unbroken or undivided) or with a single dash (called broken or divided).
The I Ching is a living document. It has been used as a divination manual and a book of wisdom. It has been interpreted through many lenses — from seeking practical advice to seeking moral guidance; approached through the framework of a Daoist, Confucian, Buddhist, Christian, Mystic, and Psychologist.
