Overview

Translated more often than any other book except the Bible, the Tao Te Ching has been a spiritual guide for centuries, helping millions find peace within themselves, with each other, and with the natural world around them. Written in workbook style, complete with exercises, questionnaires, journal-keeping techniques, and affirmations, The Tao of Inner Peace translates the ancient Eastern philosophy into a plan for contemporary Western living. Diane Dreher, Ph.D., shows the way to:

* Bring greater joy, fulfillment, and creativity to daily life

• Heal the body and spirit

• Build self-acceptance and self-esteem

• Resolve conflict

• Reverse negative cycles of emotion

• Understand life as a process of changes and challenges

With its lively, demystifying approach, The Tao of Inner Peace shows how the Tao can be a powerful source of growth, inspiration, and peace.
