Wisdom and the I Ching

May 02nd, 2016

Hanne Quillevere’s The Pivotal I CHING (Mac Zen Consulting, 2015) bring’s the ancient Chinese book of wisdom into the modern world. Using the I Ching, Quillevere seeks to  resolve a persistent modern quandary: that of “learning to live in external harmony with Nature by first mastering our inner world of often conflicting aims and shortsighted egocentricity.” Her work serves as a tool for anyone looking to bridge the gulf between their material and spiritual lives. Quillevere was born in Denmark. She came to Canada as a child with immigrant parents. A fully certified teacher for B.C. schools, at one point she taught in French Immersion. However, over the years she mostly taught English language and literature (B.A. Eng. Hon.; M.A. in Eng., UBC). Upon her retirement, Quillevere’s chief interest has been the Chinese oracular book of wisdom, the I Ching. She has devised and taught several continuing-education courses on this subject.  978-0-9916920-3-3
