Practical Divination: Listening to the Universe.

The universe is always addressing us, whether it’s in the way the characters of a bazi fall, the oddities inside and around a building, the Hexagrams of the Book of Changes or in more subtle ways. When I’m surveying a space or drafting a ba zi I aim to be aware of noises off, a snatch of conversation, music just within earshot, the temperature, newspaper headlines, street names. All of which will tend to tell me things I might not figure out in any rational way, If I manage to catch such signs my job can so much easier and so much more accurate.

In this talk we will delve into the history and methodology of divination all over the world and I will illustrate the process of interpreting the waking dream with examples from 20 years of work as a feng shui man and my own life and outline how anyone may enrich their practice and indeed their life this way.
