Letting the I Ching Write Your Story for You with Henry Lien
July 26, 2020 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am PST
Philip K. Dick did not write one of his greatest novels, The Man in the High Castle. Dick discovered the I Ching when he began the novel and he let the I Ching write his novel for him. The I Ching is a three thousand year old collection of 64 poems. It can be read as philosophy but is most famous as an oracle, using a method of casting coins or yarrow stalks. This workshop guides students through the process of consulting the I Ching to guide the course of their story. The workshop supplements I Ching consultation with techniques including surrealist parlour games to help grow the connective tissue between one plot node to the next plot node where the I Ching wants the story to go.
Join Henry Lien for an online workshop to learn how to use the I Ching to build a story. Limited enrollment (15); scholarships available.
