The I Ching, translated variously as the Book of Changes or the Classic of Change, is perhaps the oldest writing on philosophy, cosmology, divination and self -transformation in Chinese civilization. It is one of the treasures of ancient Chinese literature, used as a divinatory tool as well as an instrument to develop intuition and perception. The I Ching Workbook provides a fascinating overview of the I Ching including its history and legend, the symbolism of the 8 trigrams of natural energy, the meanings of the oracles of the 64 hexagrams, and methods for casting the I Ching. This illustrated workbook also explores the connections between the I Ching, oriental philosophy, and Chinese astrology, making it appropriate for beginners but also rich enough for devotees wishing to expand their knowledge of this fascinating subject.

About the author (2004)

Roger Lancelyn Green was born in England in 1918, where his family has lived for more than 900 years. He was often sick as a child and spent long periods confined to his room devouring Greek myths, medieval romances, and fairy tales. Green began a lifelong fascination with Greece and Greek culture when he first visited that country in 1935. He went on to compile and retell many Greek stories, including "Old Greek Fairy Tales," and "Jason and the Golden Fleece." Green also wrote his own stories, but he is better known for his retellings of folk tales from around the world. Roger Lancelyn Green died in 1987
