Stephen Karcher, Ph.D., is one of today’s most creative and controversial writers and practitioners in the field of Yijing studies, divination and myth. He is an internationally recognized scholar, translator and initiated diviner, teaching and lecturing on the Yijing and other divination systems in the US, Great Britain, France, Spain, Switzerland and South Africa.  As Research Director of the Eranos Foundation in Ascona, Switzerland (1988-1996), he pioneered a depth psychological approach to divination. A prolific author, he has published many books and articles in the field of comparative mythology, divination, depth psychology and religious experience.  He “liberates meanings … that have been missing from our understanding for a couple of thousand years … revealing  a whole new landscape of interpretation that makes previous translations feel cramped by comparison.” Stephen lives in Ojai, California.
