The Divination Foundation announces the release of a new eBook, The Visionary I Ching-A Book of Changes for Intuitive Decision Making (Visionary Networks Press) by Paul O'Brien, the original inventor of divination software. The Visionary I Ching is a modern and beautifully illustrated version of the ancient Taoist divination system known as the I Ching, or Book of Changes. The Visionary I Ching has received high praise from luminaries like John Gray, author of Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus, and Paul Wenner, founder of Gardenburger Inc.
The Visionary I Ching-A Book For Changes for Intuitive Decision Making 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. O'Brien's The Visionary I Ching is a masterful adaption complete with an original evocative painting 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 its decision-making wisdom.
"This eBook offers the ability to conveniently use the I Ching as a decision-making tool anytime, and serves as a tribute to that ancient tool which assisted me so well during my successful career as founder and producer of some of the first multi-media software products starting in 1989 - Synchronicity, the Oracle of Changes CD-Rom, a Tarot Magic CD-Rom and creation of I-Ching.com and Tarot.com," says O'Brien, who sold the websites for $21M in 2007.
The I Ching has a 3000-year history of emperors and leaders utilizing this divination system as their method for strategic decision-making in times of great change and uncertainty. Use of the I Ching integrates logic, intuition, and reduces bias for making decisions. This ancient classic is a sourcebook of practical wisdom that can be used to meet the challenges of this age as people strive for answers to complex questions.
"As a decision-making tool, the I Ching has helped me with that most critical of elements leading to my business success-timing. Making decisions that are premature or too late can make the difference between hitting the mark, or missing the boat in terms of business dealings and personal interactions, including romantic," O'Brien explains.
Paul O'Brien's discovery of the I Ching as a teenager in San Francisco - followed by over 20 years of studying the Taoist classic - led to composing this modern and illustrated version of the I Ching first as software, and now in eBook form as an intuitive decision-making aid that is useful in modern times.
