Ninth Moon Twelve Branches Seminar

DATE & TIME Sunday, Sept. 25th 9:30am to 5:30pm 

LOCATION     WellnessFirst! 3861 N First Ave


 The Ninth Moon of the Chinese Calendar, begin 85 days of journeying in a garden of gardens, experience the wisdom of the I Ching and realize something transformational for yourself. This 14 part seminar includes a personal Twelve Branches process of manifesting a contextual reality, way of being or get a thing you say you want. You will be working on, through and tasking as you go. By journeying the Twelve Branches without a doubt, it will come to you in its most appropriate form.


   A Twelve Branch structure of the I Ching is a map of a specific journey, the layout of a particular garden. Whatever you ask for, whatever it may be, the journey will deepen you. During the three months of the Twelve Branches I Ching process your daily life becomes a garden you journey in. Everything is material, those you encounter deliver messages, things are given or taken away at the right time.

The Twelve Branches is an assured path to follow for reaching a goal in it's most usable form. The I Ching's capability to both predicate and guide makes this venerable source of wisdom a wise choice of action in our time. Methodically stay with it and you will reach the appropriate manifestation of your original inquiry.


 Concluding Word

Deep in the Taoist I Ching discipline is a firing process of spiritual alchemy. The caldron and furnace are the hexagrams Heaven and Earth, symbolizing energy and spirit, firmness and flexibility. The medicines are the hexagrams Water and Fire, symbolizing real knowledge and conscious knowledge. 


Taking the Yang of Water and filling in the Yin of Fire, water and fire settle into each other; it happens naturally without forced effort. This is using yin to seek yang so that they complete, balance and settle each other.

Journeying in the Gardens of the Worlds

Dale Bruder is a life student of the Tao through the       I Ching. Since 1976 he has been applying the       I Ching to his self the way psychoanalysts and Zen teachers apply psycho- analysis or Zen to them- selves before presenting to others.


His studies of Taoist,  Buddhist and Confucian    I Ching texts towards  mastery of the 'hall of mirrors at the end of a gaint kaleidoscope'  continues today. His intel-lectual journey is to match the complexity of ordinary real life with total coherance of the three views of Chinese thought.


Life is cyclical and sequential; a series of events and episodes that advances or reverses goals and aspirations.


Making use of and learning from the experience is a key component of a well lived life. Using the Tao Time path changes the social, cultural, technological and economic push/pulls into a flow that is navigable.


Dale Bruder, a business intelligence consultant, invites you to play the infinite game.
