The Empty Vessel: The Journal of Daoist Philosophy and Practice, published since 1993, is a quarterly journal exploring Daoist (Taoist) philosophy and practice.
In Daoism we can find a way of being, a way of accepting, a way of working with change rather than against the changes that life may bring us. Wonderfully illustrative texts such as the Daodejing (Tao Te Ching) and Zhuangzi (Chuang Tzu) offer inspiration, illumination, and expedient advice on life, death and all that lies between. In Chinese medicine we can find cure and comfort for many modern ills and complaints. With Daoist health practices such as qigong (chi gong) and taiji (tai chi) we can find ways to stabilize and balance our bodies, allowing us to lead long-lasting and healthy lives. Daoist sexual yoga can guide us gracefully through the tricky and often dangerous labyrinth of human sexuality. And the practice of feng shui can help us align ourselves with our inner and outer environment. Nei Dan or Internal Alchemy practices, including meditation and visualization, can help us reach deeper levels of self-cultivation and spiritual harmony.
With feature articles, essays, art, poetry and interviews with well-known scholars, authors and teachers The Empty Vessel explores the philosophy and practices that have come down to us from the ancient achieved masters and how to apply them to today’s world. Past authors have included Livia Kohn, Fabrizio Pregadio, Hua-Ching Ni, Kenneth Cohen, Chungliang Al Huang, Daniel Reid, Zhongxian Wu, Mantak Chia, Alex Feng, Dr, Jerry Alan Johnson, James Miller, Louis Komjathy and Solala Towler.
