A review from Part 2: "The BEST course on Udemy! Ron and Debbie are expert guides, always available to answer questions. I (rate) a ten out of ten." (Kobus Berger)

Unlike our first two classes, this course does not include any abstract theory. In response to popular demand, this new class laser-focuses solely on real, live I Ching readings and illustrated stories from the real world and gives you the option to practice interpreting them along with us.  We recommend that you watch "Discover the I Ching" Parts 1 and 2 first to get the most out of this course.

In this class, you will view three actual I Ching Readings, plus you can practice interpreting them if you wish!

This class includes what students have asked for most:

1. Videos of I Ching Readings recorded Live (from Dr. Ron's 2003-4 TV show, with added follow-up info on how events turned out!)

2. Step-by-Step PRACTICE options (You can interpret the readings yourself and compare your conclusions to ours -- Or -- just Watch & Learn)

3. Real-Life Case Stories of how people relate to the I Ching and how it has enriched lives

  • Ron rescued and re-purposed classic videos of his former TV-show that featured I Ching readings (with Toby Stearns) .

  • Learn just by watching or Pause (when invited) and actively do the reading along with us. Then compare your answers with ours.  Now you can practice interpreting the readings one step ahead of us and see how your interprations compare. You can spot insights we may have missed. We have never created or seen an I Ching practice method like this before.

Ron and Debbie also share further fascinating and instructive examples of the I Ching in action. This is a Richly Visual class. Discover detailed short stories of how people have employed the I Ching in ways that made a difference in their lives. Watch a variety of real-life examples to learn from. Get to know the Sage in action. This is not a theory course, but a practical one.

Observe the Sage in Real-World Situations. You even get to take a deep dive with two of the people who did I Ching readings in the videos as they answer detailed questions about  how and when and why they use the I Ching, providing insider info that is rarely shared.

Real Life Examples let you Practice, Practice, Practice -- Or Simply Watch & Learn!

The I Ching (or Yijing) magnifies your own intuition. It's a megaphone for the "still, small voice within." You can get help with any question from this ancient book that has been shaped over millennia by the best minds of China and beyond. This was Carl Jung's trusted oracle for good reason.

Dr. Ron used the I Ching extensively as a Jungian psychotherapist. Together, he and Debbie teach, do professional readings, and consult the I Ching at the beginning of every day and as their primary guide for growth and real-world decisions. 

Debbie Hart (Ron's life partner) is an artist and educator who co-teaches this unique Introduction to the I Ching. With the yin and yang theory of complementary opposites that underlies the I Ching, it seems fitting to have the balance of both a male (yang) and a female (yin) teacher co-teaching these classes.

A final review from our first class of this series:                                  

  • "I highly recommend this I Ching course to anyone seeking greater self awareness. I have taken many courses across my life but none that ever treated this subject with such profound understanding, reverence, wisdom, and experience. Dr Ron and Debbie congratulations! You did the I Ching proud!" (Phyllis Olivas)

Hello and Welcome to Part 2 of Discover the I Ching. We plan to add a few new ideas about drilling down into your reading with "nuclear hexagrams" in part One.

In part Two we have created a way for you to observe real readings from archival footage. We edited it so that you can use whatever translations you want to practice interpreting the answers yourself! And you can then compare your answers with ours in the classic videos.

And, in Part Three, we further edited some classic Case Studies of the I Ching in action in real people's lives, including our own.

I Ching Readings and Omens

Our next snippet of the I Ching in action touches on the idea of Universal Wisdom: words and symbols that carry multiple layers of meaning for multiple points of view at the same time.

Universal Wisdom & Multidimensional Meaning

Consider the challenging issue of introducing the I Ching these days. We are presenting this once-secretive, truly ancient, often foreign, other-worldly, mystical and shamanic tool to modern, practical people.

Introducing the I Ching to "Normals"

Every individual is subject to a unique pattern of forces in any given moment. The I Ching is very useful in assessing the issues in your personal situation in any given moment. … I Ching readings spell out whether the shape of fate favors or obstructs your goals

The next story nicely illustrates how an I Ching metaphor can be applied in action. At the time I was seeking an office for my private practice...

Case Study: An Interview with Toby Stearns

1. How often do you use the I Ching? For what topics?

I use the Ching daily as a guide. Jill & I do a joint throw every morning. It is a wonderful way to connect with each other & the Sage. I typically ponder connections to our throw throughout the day as I think of it.

Ten I Ching Questions for Toby Stearns

This next clip of the I Ching in action illustrates how extremely practical I Ching questions can be. We have found it reliable for choosing auto mechanics, selecting a movie to attend, deciding when is best to leave for vacations and, yes, even food safety. Do Not Try This Yourself. We share these stories to illustrate the I Ching in action, but Do Not recommend this to others. Nonetheless, it is instructive in several ways.
