Groups, forums

I Ching with Clarity :  A remarkably many-sided site on the I Ching (Yijing): information, downloads, courses on divination, shared readings, and talks in a most friendly and active community. In all this with Hillary Barrett who "keeps the Well in good repair so you can easily reach the water you need".
Midaughter · MidaughtersIChing /intermediate-advanced:   One of the most active group and forum on the I Ching. "Our focus philosophically is Sung Dynasty I Ching theories and philosophy. We accept the premise that the Yi is primarily an oracle and dedicated to the idea that the Book of Changes will aid all in achieving Tao."
