David Hinton

David Hinton’s many translations of classical Chinese poetry have earned wide acclaim for creating compelling contemporary poems that convey the texture and density of the originals. He is also the first translator in over a century to translate the five seminal masterworks of Chinese philosophy: "I Ching", "Tao Te Ching", "Chuang Tzu", "Analects", and "Mencius". Hinton has received many national awards, including a Guggenheim Fellowship, both major awards for poetry translation, and most recently, a lifetime achievement award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. Over the last decade, David has moved toward writing that is original in a more traditional sense: poetry and lyrical/philosophical essays.

David Hinton: The I Ching and You: A Demonstration

Check out David Hinton's video on Centerpost, Walking Hunger Mountain.

The I Ching is perhaps the most relevant text for us in these times, whether read for its philosophical understanding of change or as a personal guide for navigating through chaos. David will demonstrate how it can be used to align with your destiny and navigate change as a sample of what his five part series on the I Ching beginning on January 14 can mean for you as you navigate this time of change.

As with all our free programs, within the week after this workshop, the recording will be posted under the presenter's name on the Recorded Programs page.
