Description

This volume is designed to help you understand what Taoism is and how to put it to practical use in your life.

Taoism is an ancient philosophy whose wellspring is the unformed, unnamable, mystical guiding principle of Tao. Tao takes form as a pair of opposites, known as yin and yang, which, in turn, weave together and interrelate to create an infinite world of possibilities.

Simple Taoism is divided into three parts. Part I gives the history and development of the philosophy, illustrated with stories to bring it to life. A timeline is included in the back of the book for quick reference. Part II explains key concepts, crystallizing Taoist principles which interrelate in circularity, true to Taoism’s values. Part III shows ways to bring the insights of this time-honored Eastern philosophy into your life so that you can live the wisdom for yourself!

Simple Taoism offers:

A clear explanation of Taoism and how to apply its best aspects to your daily life

Simple instructions for exercises to lead a fuller life-meditation, breathing, chi kung, and tai chi chuan

An informative discussion of key Taoist concepts, including wu-wei (non-action), yin and yang, and Te (power, virtue, life)
