"Not just an interpretation but helpful to understand life's processes."
"In 30 years of studying iching this is the most comprehensive insightful set of interpretations I have ever seen I have ordered extra for friends this will be my main reference it's worth having."
“This book breaks new ground in the realm of Joseph Campbell's work on archetypes and the hero's journey. Reminiscent of Carl Jung, the author uses the backdrop of world mythology to present common dream themes or "cycles" that appear in all dreams. She brings forward Freud's earlier writings on dream analysis, seamlessly unifying their ideas. Through actual examples, the reader is guided through the process of dream analysis, although this book also stands as an excellent anthology of world mythology.”
"Her book The Mythology of Sleep The Waking Power of Dreams is a must read for anyone who is exploring dreams and what they mean. Her expression of how nature can be a teacher, through her book Nothing Bad Happens in Life, instilled in me a respect for nature and it's processes like never before. Her latest book The Common Archetypes of Tarot beautifully integrates the Tarot with dream symbols, mythology, astrology, the I Ching and nature in a way that will give so much more depth and clarity to a tarot reading."
"This is more than a great reference book for Astrologers. It unravels the story of our ancient stories written in the sky, the development of the zodiac, and ends with ideas that make you really rethink what you thought you knew about history."
“Like most followers of the Tao Te Ching, I have read many translations, and in one way or another enjoyed them all. So it is amazing to me that there could be this new version by Kari Hohne, which seems at every point to match or exceed the others. She takes the work back to the original, lets go of her own agenda, and writes English with a vocabulary rooted in the heart - that is the way of the Tao and the best translations also. She is right up there with Ursula K. Le Guin, Arthur Waley, Stephen Mitchell, and Ellen M. Chen."
“Being a seasoned outdoor adventurer and an environmentalist by profession, the title of this new book whet my curiosity. Kari Hohne has taken the ancient lessons of the I Ching, which liken the incredible strength of the human spirit to the power of nature, and has spun these lessons into a delightful narrative."
