I Ching readings with Serina

An I Ching reading with me is a problem-solving session. You and I work on exploring answers to questions you have concerning a particular matter on which you desire more clarity. You can aid the flow of the reading by formulating your questions prior to the reading and keeping in mind the decisions you need to make.

I concentrate on the question you raise while tossing my I Ching coins inside my clasped hands three times. I use 8 coins: 7 of them are identical copper coins, and the remaining one a silver coin. The oracle consists of 384 poems. The positioning of the silver coin at the end of each toss is noted as a number, and the three numbers btained from the three tosses indicate the particular poem to use to answer the question at hand.

A poem usually has 4 lines. My job is to go over the poem with you and interpret it to answer your question. The meaning of some of the poems is cryptic--hidden, ambiguous, or downright baffling. Because I have used and studied the poems for over 25 years, I have a vast data base that enables me to ascertain the essential meaning of each poem using ontemporary, actual and objective data. Times change, and it might surprise some of you that the widely circulated and authoritative interpretation of the poems furnished by the famous Chinese scholar Shao Kangjie (邵康節) centuries ago are no longer relevant or helpful.

I allocate 30 minutes to each I Ching reading, which allows time for 3 to 4 questions. Obviously the more questions asked, the more clarity gained. You could request a second reading if you would like to explore the issue further. I charge $20 per reading.

Please phone or message ahead to book a reading at my home in Magill. The phone number is listed at the bottom of the page below. I’m available every afternoon Monday through Saturday, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Payment in cash only is accepted as I don’t yet have credit card facilities. Special arrangements can be made if the time or place is not convenient for you.

If you have questions, feel free to message me at the bottom of the page.
