Over 2,000 years ago, the great sage Lao-Tzu was disillusioned that others were unwilling to learn his path to natural goodness and harmony with nature. Today, his Tao Te Ching is one of China’s most enduring sacred texts. This introduction to the Tao reveals Lao-Tzu’s vast spiritual legacy, including Taoism’s mystical roots in China’s ancient shamanistic tradition; keys to ethical living, inner silence, and simplicity; Taoist meditation for awareness and healing; Taoist prayers, rituals, and iconography; and teachings on diet, poetry, feng shui, dream yoga, and much more. Ken Cohen is a renowned Taoist initiate, China scholar, and qigong master. Lieh-Tzu was major Taoist sage who lived c. 350 [BC]. His writings use stories and fables to elucidate the Taoist philosophy of cooperating with nature; they illustrate the magical powers of the ancient sages who were so ‘in the Tao’ that they were able to prolong life, walk through solid rock, and levitate.
