    Warm and satisfying experience of Tao!

    Who among us does not desire a calmer, simpler life? Who would not love to live in a place where taking the time to stop and smell the roses is an everyday thing? In this short book--its serene peach cover highlighting a single lotus blossom--husband and wife authors pool their collective experience to create a warm and satisfying experience of Tao. It is an introduction, plain and simple, to the basic principles of Taoism, along with exercises to help the reader put the principles into action. The language is sparse but readible: there is nothing flowery or encumbering here--which, in a tidy manner, illustrates one of Tao's basic principles: live simply and without excess, indulging your senses without overindulgence. Other principles covered include Yin and Yang (accepting and integraging opposites), Chi (learning to activate your energy), and Wu-Wei (accomplishing more by doing less). Illustrated with charts, diagrams, and photos, this concise yet information-packed work will prove useful to beginners and accomplished students alike.

    Inspirational and Informative!

    This attractive little book deepened my understanding of Taoism. It not only explained key concepts like tao, te, chi, yin and yang, wu-wei (non-action) but also showed how to integrate them into life, to enhance health and healing, to raise and relax energy with Chi Kung exercises, to enhance creativity with the flow of chi. It also included a very unusual and helpful chapter on the unconscious mind and dreams. Taoism is a wonderful philosophy that can do a lot to help us all today. I highly recommend this book!
