Can anybody help me?
I have made commitment to study The Book of Changes, or Yi Ching in depth, and so Chinese Medicine. I had first introduction class. Teacher requires to make notes and I have decided to try to have them (notes) as small blog posts. I have dyslexia and I cannot write or make notes, it just confuses me. But I can type.
And If I can keep up with blog notes, I will have them as great reference pages, I can always turn to. It’s just a matter of finding type, which is triple time for me due to my dyslexia.
So below are notes from my introductory class.
