Han Boering on I Ching, Freedom, Joy and Resonance

click CC for English subtitles

Han Boering, author of "I Ching for the 21st Century" (written in Dutch) passed away on June 10th, 2015. He was a very wise man, but also very modest. An inhexaustible source with his vision on life. 

I made this interview with him on February 25th, 2011. This was within the context of my documentary "Freedom". But I never published the full interview. His passing is the reason to share it here.

Han Boering, schrijver van "I Tjing voor de 21ste eeuw" overleed op 10 juni 2015. Het was een man met heel erg veel wijsheid en toch bescheiden. Een onuitputtelijke bron van visie op het leven.

Ik interviewde hem op 25 februari 2011 in het kader van mijn film "Freedom", maar heb dat interview nooit gebruikt of gedeeld. Zijn overlijden is de aanleiding om dit te delen.
