Overview


Drawing heavily on the Tao Te Ching, an ancient Chinese text, this guide helps modern educators integrate Taoist principles such as harmony and compassion into their everyday lives. Taoism is a spiritual system for finding one’s own “way” through life, and this book provides guidance on “the way” of teaching—emphasizing the themes of compassion and openness, renewal, knowing one another, matters of energy, the importance of creativity, and the master teacher. The myriad challenges that teachers face today are addressed with true Taoist wisdom—not just a collection of gentle affirmations or abstract musings.
