With the help of the fundamental principles of the Book of Changes it is
possible to arrive at a complete realisation of man's innate capabilities.
This unfolding rests on the fact that man has innate capacities that resemble
heaven and earth, that he is a microcosm.
Now, since the laws of heaven and earth are reproduced in the Book of Changes, man is provided
with the means of shaping his own nature, so that his inborn potentialities for good can be completely realised.
Ta Chuan / The Great Treatise
Though the Zhouyi is renowned as an oracle, it's also a deeply coherent
~ and compassionate ~ wellspring of wisdom, which has been of huge
value and influence to me over the last thirty years.
My focus for twenty of those years has been to create a visual
interpretation of the I Ching's sixty-four states of change.
This can be accessed on this site as an interactive oracle.
It's also available in the form of a card deck; the
tiny prototype edition of 250 is here.
An edition of eight oversized decks with unique cast glass
artworks is also nearing completion. (Ask if you're interested :)
