Learn to converse directly with the wisdom inherent in Reality through the vehicle of the Zhouyi (Yi Jing) and Omenology.

THIS TEACHING IS BY INVITATION ONLY. DO NOT REGISTER UNLESS YOU HAVE BEEN ADDED BY SHAMBHAVI TO THE #divining-arts SLACK CHANNEL. 

  • Explore divination as a spiritual practice and learn how to consult the Zhouyi (parent of the Yi Jing/ I Ching) for guidance.
  • Become more skillful in life by learning to read natural signs.

About the Divining Arts Retreat

Teachings are given every morning of the retreat from 9am – noon. Additional group practice sessions are mandatory if you have not taken an earlier version of this teaching.

You will receive in-depth instruction in the history, View and practice of divination with the Zhouyi and reading natural signs. The Zhouyi dates from circa 800 BC and is the gutsy, shamanistic parent of the Yi Jing (I Ching).

Purchasing the Zhouyi

The main text we are using is Zhouyi: the heart of the Yijing by Liu Ming. Secondary texts will be recommended during the teaching, but are not required.

You must purchase the version of the Zhouyi that is used in the course. Shambhavi has copies available for $40 each. These are less expensive than currently available copies from online sellers.  Shambhavi’s copies will be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis to people who have registered and paid for the retreat.

The second-best deal is to purchase copies directly from the publisher here for $50 plus shipping: Zhouyi: the heart of the Yijing.

What is the commitment?

You must attend every teaching and practice session and be on time. If you miss a session for any reason other than a dire emergency, you will not be allowed to continue in the teaching. You also agree to read the entire text either during the course of the teaching week or immediately after the teaching is over.

Satsang with Shambhavi

Sunday, October 1, 2017
6:30 pm - 8:00 pm Satsang with Shambhavi
Matrika House, Portland ME

Satsang = Being in Reality Together

Come learn, have fun, find community, sing
and remember who you really are.

Satsang is a lively, ancient spiritual practice from India. People gather for a relaxed, “anything goes” conversation about the nature of reality, self-realization, spiritual life, and all aspects of human experience from the most ordinary to the most cosmic.

Exactly what happens at satsang?

We chant some chants. Then Shambhavi leads a free-flowing conversation during which people ask questions about anything. The conversation is followed by open-mic, community kirtan.

What is community kirtan?

Kirtan is call and response singing accompanied by musical instruments such as harmonium, drums, bells and whatever other instruments people like to play!

We play kirtan together as a community in the ancient style. Anyone can lead the singing, or play an instrument. The emphasis is on having fun and feeling the joy of singing together. We have a harmonium and loads of percussion instruments that anyone can play. Mistakes are part of the fun.

Please join us for these unique and inspiring evenings.
