Understanding Yourself Through The I-Ching
with Inoshi Denizen
A free event sponsored by Golden Drum and MAISC to celebrate Summer Solstice.
In this workshop we learn how to consult the I-Ching, a timeless oracle from China that works on the realm of the subconscious. The I-Ching (Yijing, Book of Changes) is a helpful way to frame the energies of life and life matters, and leads us to self understanding. It is also an enjoyable way to explore perennial philosophy, and Taoist arts, the latter of which it actually predates.
Participants will be coached in framing queries, and as a part of a brief meditation allowed to privately select a query for response. The workshop will include consulting, producing an image (a response from the I-Ching), discussion and a few short periods of silent meditation with feedback.
Dress comfortably and be prepared to sit for a few periods of 3-5 minutes in silence. Bring three coins of the same kind, and a notepad will be useful for those that wish to keep a record. Participants may bring their own version of the I-Ching if they wish. The workshop aims to give you a response on a personal matter and improve your knowledge base and skill in the I-Ching system. All are welcome.
Inoshi Denizen is an Energy Wellness Practitioner, Perceptual Guide, and founder of Open Tai Chi and Unu, an East-West informed pan-cultural wellness community based in NYC of which he is the principal instructor. His credentials include multiple modalities, which he has combined into distinctive practice areas, providing safe, sensitive energy wellness therapy and guidance to numerous clients.
Inoshi appreciates and rests in a sense and sensibility of a free soul. He teaches from a place of refined creativity and encourages people to be open and adaptable, and to release their "isms".
He recognizes many teachers: from individuals, to life itself and what comprises it, atmospheres, cultures, energies, contexts, situations, entities, and other nodes of existence. Everything conceivable, and not, allows itself as a sharing point to our experience and understanding.
Many of his animate teachers have likewise been free souls who crossed paths and imparted their aesthetic, artistry, skill, resonance and vibration. Bohemian ~ Zen in nature, Inoshi suggests that any investigation into discipline must inevitably lead to play and interdependent freedom (instead of isolative freedom and restriction).
