Following the teachings of the Taoist Gi-Ming Shein, Pierre Grimes will outline and discuss the fundamental ideas and the practice of the I Ching

“The fundamental ideas of Classical Chinese Philosophy have their parallel in Platonic thought so that we are looking at one spiritual vision in two traditions.”

                                                       Gi-Ming Shein


The insight of Classical Chinese thought that “relations are constant while terms vary” guides readers of the I Ching to unlock the profound meaning of this work.  With their accompanying principle that “before meaning can be reached there must be a true rectification of names” we find a direct kinship with our philosophical midwifery.
