Entry Description

Imagery is the language of the soul, and when it's allowed to flow from your intuition, it will reveal profound insights. It taps into a deep spiritual truth. Once you know this place, you can tap into it at any time and use your creative process as a meditation. This book is a visual and written journey through the iChing, my personal experience in understanding each of the 64 hexagrams, shown through my photography. As Rilke expressed in Letters to a Young Poet, "Describe your sorrows and desires, the thoughts that pass through your mind and your belief in some kind of beauty - describe all these with heartfelt, silent, humble sincerity and when you express yourself, use the things around you, the images from your dreams and objects that you remember." It requires a small amount of courage to reveal such intimacy.
