The ancient Book of Changes or I Ching is known by almost all, yet understood by few. The I Ching (often spelled as I Jing, Yi Ching; also called "Book of Changes" or "Classic of Changes") is the oldest of the Chinese classic texts.

A symbol system designed to identify order in what seem like chance events, it describes an ancient system of cosmology and philosophy that is at the heart of Chinese cultural beliefs. The philosophy centers on the ideas of the dynamic balance of opposites, the evolution of events as a process, and acceptance of the inevitability of change (see Philosophy, below).

In Western cultures, the I Ching is regarded by some as simply a system of divination; many believe it expresses the wisdom and philosophy of ancient China. The book consists of a series of symbols, rules for manipulating these symbols, poems, and commentary.

We can offer an one-time overview (2 hours) of I-Ching (Yi Jing) which provides e a basic introduction to the I Ching for a lay audience, or a series of 6-8 sessions I-Ching course. It will be conducted in English or in Chinese with English interpretation.

Venue: China Culture Center, Chaoyang District, Beijing, China.
