Neither a translation nor a paraphrased interpretation, I Ching for Beginners helps readers consult this remarkable Chinese classic with confidence. For each of the I Ching's sixty-four passages, McElroy provides a summary, study questions, and keywords, and explains how the message relates to relationships, love, work, and projects. Also included are directions for creating and interpreting hexagrams.
Offering guidance to emperors, generals, and kings for millennia, the I Ching remains a powerful oracle today. However, many seekers find its symbolism and outdated metaphors a challenge to interpret. Mark McElroy strips away obscure references and reverently recasts the I Ching's ancient ideas into everyday terms, making it fast and easy to apply its enduring wisdom to contemporary life.
