Workshop 1: Open Your Mind to Change


  - Friday, January 24, 2020 -  7:00pm to 9:30 pm.

  • *Students will need to bring their own Yijing Book for the program

  • Explore the Yijing as a personal insight method using the Li family hexagram casting methods.


  • The Yijing (I-ching), or Chinese book of changes, is one of the oldest books in the world. It began as a type of agrarian calendar used to forecast planting seasons and evolved over hundreds if not thousands of years into a way to tap into one’s subconscious mind. Some have used it as a way to tell fortunes, but this is not really what the Yijing actually does. One should never have someone else "cast" the Yijing for them. It is a very personal practice. Shifu John Painter will show you a unique way to use and understand the depths of the Book of Changes for your own personal oracle to open up your mind to the spirit of change.

  •                                                 . 
  • Cost
  • Full Weekend Workshop - $250.00

  • Friday only - $75.00
