Paul O’Brien

Paul O’Brien left an executive position in high-tech to invent a new category of multimedia software in 1989, which evolved to eventually become the world’s largest astrology and divination website in 2003.  He is the author of three books. Paul is a sought after speaker, visionary, entrepreneur, author and founder of the Divination Foundation.

Paul’s newest book Great Decisions, Perfect Timing: Cultivating Intuitive Intelligence (release Feb 2015) is an autobiographical, part how-to manual for intuitive decision-making and part holistic philosophy.

A previous book The Visionary I Ching: A Book of Changes for Intuitive Decision Making, (Divination Press, January 2013) is a beautifully illustrated eBook that offers readers a tool for intuitive insight and managing change. The Visionary I Ching is a non-sexist, non-militarist interpretation of the oldest classical divination systems. The Ebook is illustrated with Joan Larimore’s I-Ching inspired art for each of the 64 hexagrams. The modern Taoist text renders this ancient system ever more useful as an intuitive decision-making aid for modern times. (Note: The Visionary I Ching is now available as a smartphone app available from both Apple and Google stores, complete with an authentic way to cast a reading using a phone or tablet.)

Paul’s first book Divination: Sacred Tools for Reading the Mind of God (Visionary Networks Press, July 2007) was a study of how classical divination systems (like the I Ching) can be used to help people make better decisions that result in better relationships, greater success and less stress. In all of his work, Paul shows how you can stimulate your intuition to think outside the box to solve problems that logic can’t handle — especially strategic personal and professional decisions we now must make more quickly than ever. In an easy-to-read manner, the Divination book academically explains how divination systems work, their history, psychology, and how to apply such tools for activating intuition, making great decisions and realizing optimum results.

Paul has been the host of Pathways, a radio interview program focused on personal and cultural transformation for over 25 years. Pathways is podcast to a worldwide audience, and airs in Portland, Oregon on KBOO 90.7 fm.
