Having been largely distracted with some HO-related activities of late, I’m finally getting back to the grind of things here at BaZiqueen.com, starting with an update of classes I’ll be running in May 2014. (For those who has been asking for a confirm on the schedule, I’m…doing it at last).
The two classes I will be running are a 3 day class on Interactions (Combination, Clash, Destruction, Harms, Punishments) and a 2 day class on Shifting Palace Technique. Below are more details on the first class, which is tailored for advanced beginners and intermediate students.
Interactions 101: Combination, Clash, Harms, Destructions, Punishment
May 30-31, June 1st, 2014, 10am-5pm
Venue: Solaris Mont Kiara
Seminar Fee: RM2800 [RM2500 early bird - pay before May 15th]
It is entirely common to encounter Advanced Level students who simply do not understand what to do with the Combinations, Clashes, Harms, Destructions and Punishments when it comes to interpreting a BaZi chart. Oftentimes, this is a result of a lack of familiarity with the Interactions per se (few people tend to have them sufficiently committed to memory, especially if said interactions don’t appear in their own charts). But in many cases, it is simply a lack of understanding as to WHEN to regard a clash as being of significance, and HOW TO INTERPRET the clash.
Interactions 101 is designed for students of BaZi who have studied sufficient BaZi to be able to:
a) identify the basic elements of a BaZi chart (ie: Day Master, Pillars, Luck Pillars)
b) engage in a basic character reading of a BaZi chart using the Day Master + Structure
c) have a basic understanding of Strong vs Weak Day Master
d) Can identify a Combination, Clash, Harm, Destruction and Punishment within a given chart without the need to refer to tables/books
e) Know the 10 Gods for each of the 10 Day Masters, and the characteristics for each of the 10 Gods.
The focal point of this class is to help students understand how to interpret the Clash, Combination, Harm, Destruction and Punishment. More specifically, it is to assist students in determining WHEN a particular interaction is relevant, and when it is NOT relevant. This is because 99% of the time, when someone is confused by a feature in a chart, it is because they have allowed themselves to be distracted by an interaction that may not be strictly relevant to the question at hand. The capacity to zero in on the correct feature of the chart (and accordingly the interactions that MATTER) is the key to being able to successfully interpret a chart. In short, KNOWING the Interactions is a bit like learning the alphabet – you need to know it to be able to read, but in order to read, you must know WORDS too.
Day #1: Revision of Clash, Harm, Destruction, Punishment and Combinations to ensure basics are beyond familiar, and then rigorous practical exercises using sample charts from the facilitator. Following lunch, the session will move to a quick 2 hour recap of the 10 Gods, followed by Q&A from students to prepare for the two days of Practicum.
Day #2: Practicum Session will focus on the topic of Wealth and how to interpret the Interactions within the context of Wealth-Related Matters.
Day #2: Practicum Session will focus on the topic of Career and how to interpret Interactions within the context of Career-Related Matters.
If you have never taken a class from the Baziqueen, then prepare to experience a BaZi class like no other. This is a class where you don’t just get to ask the questions, you’re expected to answer them too. BaZi is a subject that benefits from an immersive class methodology using real examples, not hypotheticals. In my socratic style classes, you will be guided to understand principles (vs specific models) and also, taught how to think practically in interpreting the chart and how to not get distracted in your approach. You will be made to think (and think quite hard) but always with the purpose of helping you attain a better level of understanding and practical knowledge needed to apply what you have learnt.
Who will benefit the most from this seminar?
Any student who struggles to identify Clashes, Harms, Destructions, Punishments and Combinations in a BaZi chart (for whatever reason) will find this class useful because you will have a solid practical session that actually takes you through the nuts and bolts of this key BaZi basic. Essentially, if you have ever wanted to just have the “Math Teacher” approach and work through a set of charts to identify all the interactions correctly in a classroom environment, that is what will happen here as the foundation/groundwork of the class.
Any student who can identify the Clashes/Harms/Destructions/Punishments and Combinations in a BaZi chart but then finds themselves drawing a blank when it comes to overlaying the 10 Gods over these interactions will also find this class to be immensely useful because you will work with live examples, in a guided environment where you will have the opportunity to not just participate, but ask questions.
An advanced student who can already do the above, but is looking for tune-up on how these interactions work within the context of Wealth & Career may find the 2nd and 3rd day of more use, and the first day will be less effective.
