"Tao" means the Way or the Path, also the source and essence of everything. For over 2,500 years the non-theistic philosophy of Taoism has encouraged people to seek balance, harmony, simplicity, humility and open-mindedness. It embraces intuition, contradictions and humor. This brief introduction, including slide show and handouts, covers the main principles and most famous texts, including the Tao Te Ching. We'll talk about applying the principles in our daily lives as effective antidotes to stress and overwork.
