What’s in it for me? Learn the ancient wisdom of the Tao and how its teachings are still applicable today.
The Tao Te Ching is one of the most treasured ancient texts in Eastern philosophy. While it’s been continually studied for over 2,000 years, its 81 passages of text, attributed to the philosopher Laozi, contain only 5,000 Chinese characters.
Some of these characters are no longer used today, and many of the passages are poetically expressive, so there’s a rich history of scholars interpreting the text and its teachings. One such scholar is Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, who has taken ten popular interpretations as his guide to extracting wisdom from the Tao Te Ching.
Not only does Dr. Dyer capture the essence of the ancient teachings, but he also looks at the Tao through a modern lens, explaining how anyone today can apply and benefit from these principles.
