Advanced Four Pillars (Bazi - 八字) Workshop in Singapore

Event date: 
Apr. 13, 2013 - 10:00 to Apr. 20, 2013 - 17:00

Jerry King will be hosting Advanced Level I and Level II classes in April 2013 in Singapore. A thorough understanding of Five Element theory and the ten Heavenly Stems and twelve Earthly Branches is imperative prior to attending this workshop.  Participants attending the workshop will benefit even more if they are familiar with branch and stem combinations.

In Level I of the Advanced Four Pillars of Destiny Workshop, cosmic flow and the classification of a chart are explained.  Within the Level II syllabus, evaluation of personality characteristics, relationships, wealth and talents will be explored.  This workshop will include explanations of important terms found in classical Chinese texts.  Students will be introduced to select works from the most authoritative Chinese texts on Four Pillars, interpreted by Master Tsui Lok Ng in the 19th century. Two books that are studied by many Chinese masters in Hong Kong and Taiwan, “滴天髓闡微” and “窮通寶鑑” will be discussed.  Many of the concepts referenced in these texts require a high level of proficiency in Chinese for full comprehension.  This workshop will explain concepts in these texts that are crucial for all serious students of Four Pillars.  Understanding the interaction of the Ten Gods in a chart and how this influences the subject’s character and decision-making abilities is another highlight of this workshop.

In general, those enrolled in the Advanced II level should be prepared to engage in a great deal of critical thinking. The theories presented in Day Two will be particularly challenging, requiring a high level of focus and mental acuity from the student.  Some of the theories have been translated in English and found in the book Four Pillars of Destiny: A Guide To Relationships, by Jerry King.
