A comprehensive guide to the mysteries of the I Ching.

Originally discovered around 3,000 BCE, the I Ching is a collection of symbols that explain how patterns in the universe change and shift. These sixty-four symbols contain within them one of the most powerful keys to understanding the world around us. The Secrets of the I Ching is the definitive guide to understanding the ancient mysteries and foundations of the I Ching.

Authors Dr. David Lee and Joseph K. Kim guide the reader from the very beginning of Eastern thought, the concepts of Tao and Tai Chi, through the theory of Yin-Yang, Trinity, the Five Elements, and other critical concepts that will unlock the full meaning of the I Ching. Instead of simply re-interpreting the myriad of meanings ascribed to the I Ching, they focus on the symbols themselves, offering a new way of understanding its unique power.

Filled with over three hundred images and backed by in-depth research and study, The Secrets of the I Ching is the ultimate guide to the I Ching and essential reading for anyone interested in exploring the power of this ancient source of wisdom and knowledge.

"In lucid and insightful writing, and by providing many everyday references as well as scientific examples, the authors make the profound principles of I Ching accessible to laypeople, enabling them to understand and connect with its wisdom. The book successfully integrates East and West thinking by utilizing the principles and wisdom of I Ching. The principles of I Ching underlie all worldly phenomena and, therefore, also underlie traditional Sasang medicine, including pulse diagnosis, acupuncture, herbal treatment, and dietary recommendations for the four main body types. This brilliant and comprehensive treatise is an indispensable tool for deepening our understanding of our life experience."
