Questioning the Oracle:
The I Ching
Amy Shapiro M. Ed., Jo Onvlee
Questioning the Oracle: The I Ching is for seekers of wisdom, to walk in harmony with the universe, where the humble act of asking for guidance turns on the light. Some practitioners use the I Ching daily, as a sailor feeling the wind before setting sail, asking, "What counsel seeks me today," to fortify you mentally and spiritually to navigate changing winds. One's destiny can be reflected in the I Ching's verses remarkably, answering even provocative, controversial questions, posed with a desire for new insights based on ancient Chinese philosophy.
Questioning the Oracle is suited for those new to the I Ching and offers new ideas and methods for experienced readers to expand their practice beyond the usual two-Hexagram oracle reading. Introduced is the idea that a second Hexagram, derived from the first's Changing Lines, becomes a third Hexagram, forming a Triole - a whole trinity of meaning - pertaining to one's questions, of Head, Shell and Tail Hexagrams.
Original oracle interpretations for each Hexagram Line incorporate multiple sources of ancient symbolism and wisdom with a poetic twist. Readers will learn: What is the origin of the I Ching as an ancient oracle? What is Yin and Yang? How to obtain a Hexagram with coins? What is a trigram and how to use the trigram matrix? How to interpret the oracle? What are Marks and how do they make a 2nd Hexagram oracle? What is the Law of Odd and Even, and how does it make a 3rd Hexagram? What are Trioles, Tri-unes, Nuclear and Bone Hexagrams? How do the Lines relate to 6 other Hexagrams in a Star? Included too, a glossary, a handy set of Hexagram Cards, and more!
Questioning the Oracle shows how communing with the I Ching as an oracle is like dancing with a divine feminine essence whose truths swirl in layered veils; the Oracle speaks in changing voices, fathoming the unfathomable. The I Ching explains the What, How and Why of your concern in a Triole of answers revealing Heaven's cryptic secrets to inspire your soul.
In a rare Yin-Yang balance, Jo Onvlee of Amsterdam, Holland, and Amy Shapiro of Gloucester, MA, USA, share a combined 100+ years of insight, making Questioning the Oracle: The I Ching and its sequel The Gift of the Tortoise: New Insights Into the I Ching, enduring classics, with the sequel guiding seekers into further timely and timeless metaphysical realms.
Both Questioning the Oracle: The I Ching, and The Gift of the Tortoise: New Insights Into the I Ching are vital resources in helping serious seekers take their practice of the I Ching to new dimensions.
