Description

"The Toltec I Ching provides a helpful tool with which to assist individuals young and old with the integration of positive thinking and relationship-driven interactions into a world often dominated by professional commitments." —DK
 

Definitely NOT just another I Ching, The Toltec I Ching is genuinely new—specifically developed for our time, our circumstances. Readers impressed by practical wisdom books such as The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz or Dan Millman’s Peaceful Warrior books will find it an excellent supporter of their efforts, as will I Ching aficionados and people of hope worldwide.  

The authors draw from common sources of both the traditional I Ching and the pre-Hispanic Central American traditions that produced the sacred calendar expiring in 2012.  Their lucid, accessible text, greatly enhanced with powerful full-color indigenous images, reunites and synergizes two powerful oracular traditions that developed independently in the east and the west for two millennia.  The result is an easy-to-consult new oracular resource that distills archetypal lessons of both hemispheres for motivation, hope, and practical guidance in the new One-World of our day.

  • Develop Better Intuition 
  • Anticipate Change 
  • Adapt in a Timely Manner 
  • Enrich & Ennoble Relationships 
  • Increase Good Fortune 
  • Harmonize with What's around You
  • Create a Positive Influence on Others 
  • Understand Unchanging Forces within Change

For people who teach and guide young people through change driven points in their lives, The Toltec I Ching provides positive, productive guidance on how individuals can adapt to change, and play a positive part in the world around them.

Early praise

The Toltec I Ching does an incredible job of addressing the collective human experience of psychological defeat — and the Spirit Warrior’s task of restoring personal power and transforming that dream. It will help many people move ‘away from the Old World of force and competition toward the New World of ethics and cooperation.’ Combining the ancient wisdom of the Toltecs and the Chinese is a beautiful way to show the power of these truths, and serve the urgent need for change in our modern world. Many individuals, and thus our entire culture, will respond and benefit from this message . . .” —Allan Hardman, Toltec Master and author of The Everything Toltec Wisdom Book

“Ramirez-Oropeza and Horden present a synthesis of oracular traditions. . . . The result is a beautiful pictorial-based guide that advises on intention and action for dealing with present and changing situations. They imbue philosophy with action, and intention with point of view, so you can plot your course and wrestle with your own destiny.” —Robert L. Spencer, author, The Craft of the Warrior

The Toltec I Ching is a wedding of two ancient traditions that speaks to the New World view of balance and harmony that all of us are called to embrace. Through its stunning artwork and lucid text, this book inspires us to see more clearly, live more creatively, and love more fully. I highly recommend it to all those seeking to understand the wisdom of the ancients and put it into daily practice.” —Ray Dodd, author, The Power of Belief
