The Visionary I Ching: A Book of Changes for Intuitive Decision Making

(Visionary Networks Press, 2013/ ISBN: 978-0-9795425-1-0)

The Visionary I Ching: A Book of Changes for Intuitive Decision Making is a modernized and beautifully illustrated adaptation of the ancient Taoist divination system known as the I Ching, or Book of Changes (paintings by Joan Larimore). It is a system for the cultivation of predictive intelligence, to help leaders and individuals manage accelerating change in an age of anxiety, make strategic professional and relationship decisions, improve timing and reduce stress. Paul O’Brien’s The Visionary I Ching is a masterful adaption complete with an original evocative painting by Joan Larimore for each of the 64 chapters, or hexagrams. The text upgrades the ancient oracle’s traditional patriarchal and militarist language, while carefully preserving the essence of strategic decision-making wisdom derived more from a Taoist than Confucian perspective

The I Ching has a 3000-year history with emperors, sages and leaders utilizing the divination system for strategic decision-making, especially in times of great change and uncertainty. Use of the I Ching stimulates the intuition for more skillful and creative decisions. This ancient classic is a sourcebook of practical wisdom that can be used to manage the changes and challenges of these chaotic times, as people look for solutions to confusing problems and dilemmas.

Divination, the Book

Divination shows how ancient divination systems (like the I Ching) can help people make better decisions for better relationships, greater success and less stress. O’Brien shows how you can stimulate your intuition to think “outside the box” around problems that logic can’t handle — including the biggest personal and professional decisions you need to make in a timely manner. Divination explains how divination systems work, their history, psychology (as illuminated by Carl Jung), and how to use them to make the right moves at the right time.
