| Yi Jing Course - 易经
Yi Jing is also known as the Classic of Changes or Book of Changes in English, is an ancient divination text and the oldest of the Chinese classics. The I Ching was originally a divination manual in the Western Zhou period (1000–750 BC), but over the course of the time, it has been utilized in many Chinese metaphysics application from Astrology (Bazi or Zi Wei Dou Shu), Feng Shui, Divination, Numerology, Augury and even Chinese medicine studies.
Because of it's strong influences during Zhou dynasty, it is sometimes called Zhou Yi (周易). The word Yi is often deals with the notion of Change. Changes brings about the unknown & anxiety. It is this unknown that ancients would like to know and find out so they can better manage the situation and make the best out of it. Thus a strong foundation in Yi Jing is vital for success in any studies of Chinese metaphysics subjects.

Yi Jing has a strong philosophical back ground. This strong philosophical background allows us to understand life and how the system works and provide a guidance for us to better manage it. Traditionally, the study of Yi Jing is divided into 3 parts:
- The System and
- Math's part.
What most people commonly know is that Yi Jing is about Yin-Yang, Baguas, 8 Trigrams, 64 Hexagrams, 5 elements, Lo Shu, HeTu etc. Actually Yi Jing is more that this.
Thus when we read Yi Jing books by different authors, the interpretation by each author is different thus causing many confusion. Furthermore, students does not understand how it is derived. This course's objective is to educate students the correct way of learning and interpreting Yi Jing. Importantly, learn how to derive it yourself.
How do we interpret this hexagram where it is a Kan on Li Gua? Which translate to Water on Fire, 2 opposing elements.
Most know Fuxi created the Early Heaven bagua but how it is derived? In a hexagram, each yao position has it's inherent Yin-Yang properties and how it can affect the interpretation.
Eventually, how the application onto Augury, Divination, Feng Shui, Astrology etc will be much easier and faster.
This course is written by Master Francis Leyau who was the Malaysian Yi Jing Association President back in the early 90's. With his 40 years of involvement in Yi Jing and Feng Shui, this is definitely a very valuable course for serious students and practitioners.
