Convention Theme

The Book of Changes – One Tradition, Various Applications

Eastern culture has been flourishing and evolving since time immemorial, as has its rich heritage of literary works, immortalized by the flow of time. Amongst the most famous of these, is the I-Ching (Yijing) – a Classic which has been hailed as the epitome of the category, and one of the foundations of Chinese culture.

The I-Ching is based on simple concepts like Yin and Yang, but incorporates great complexity, comprising the dynamic theory of change which governs our lives and the flow of events. The apparent simplicity of the I-Ching has allowed its reach to be extensive, while its complexity has allowed for limitless variations and interpretations.

We could even say that Qi gong, San Yuan Feng Shui, Bazi, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Mei Hua Yi Shu (Plum Blossom divination), Qi Men Dun Jia, and even modern computing technology – all stem from the knowledge of I-Ching.

As such, the convention this year shall revolve around the exploration of the I-Ching, and how it has naturally developed into such a complex, malleable form of practical knowledge.

The Art of using the Luopan

Master Yap Boh Chu

As most of us knew, the Luopan is an essential tool for Feng Shui practitioner, and at its most basic, it is being used to measure direction. So, what is the art of using the Luopan? One must know where to stand to measure, how to hold the Luopan properly, at what height to measure. How about the opening of the Luopan? Is there a ritual? What is the meaning of these rituals? Even the way the needle of the heaven pool reacts in certain situations has a meaning. These are the some of the questions that will be answered by Master Yap Boh Chu during this hands-on course. Bring your own Luopan and you could work on the proper way to handle and use your Luopan in various situations in and around the classroom.
