This seminar will explore Taoist Philosophy through the study of the timeless classic, “The Tao Te Ching” (“The Book of the Way and its Power”) combined with practical ways of integrating principles of Taoism and Zen (Ch’an) Buddhism into everyday life. In addition to the study of the Philosophy, different types of meditation such as seated, standing, walking, and moving will be taught and practiced as an “art of living.” T’ai Chi and Qi-Gong exercises for health, well-being, stress reduction, clear thinking and peace of mind will also be presented. At times, participants will be invited through a process of “Guided Self-Discovery” to engage in a series of experiments in “Experiential Learning.”
