Details

In his 80th year, the great sage Lao Tzu made a difficult journey to the western gate of China. He was disillusioned that others were unwilling to learn his path to natural goodness and harmony with nature. At this legendary gate, a guard asked the old man to write down his wisdom. The result was the Tao Te Ching, which remains China's most enduring sacred text.

Now, over 2,000 years later, one of the West's leading authorities on the Tao introduces you to this effortless philosophy for living on Taoism: Essential Teachings of the Way and Its Power. In easy-to-follow language, Ken Cohen reveals Lao Tzu's vast spiritual legacy, including Taoism's mystical roots in China's ancient shamanistic tradition.

This complete introduction to Taoism covers:

  • Origins, philosophy, and religion
  • Keys to ethical living, inner silence, and simplicity
  • Taoist meditation for awareness and healing
  • Taoist prayers, rituals, and iconography
  • Taoist teachings on diet, poetry, feng-shui, dream yoga, and much more.

Cohen does a fine job explaining the concept of Taoism, along with offering other valuable, related information. An extremely wise man, his authenticity rings true. When he writes a book or records information, he does so - fully, completely. (Posted on September 14, 2013)

I give this set as a gift because it is my favorite introduction to Taoism. It is, to me, my favorite work by Ken Cohen.

Friend to whom I gave this gift are appreciative and enjoy it. I give it to them with the intention of giving them a new experience and a shift in vision by listenning to this new point of view that is explained in everyday down-to-earth ways and also relayed by direct personal experience of the author. I just love and appreciate these CD's. (Posted on November 1, 2012)

Review for Taoism Review by Suzanne Bonham

Good, I've been listening to this on shuffle at night and it works well this way. My only caveat wish shuffle is that it favors some bits more than others.
I downloaded this from Sounds True, and it was easy and fast. No issues with service or payment.
I might have rated this a little higher if I had listened to the tracks in order. I'm a shuffle person, so your mileage may vary.
The speaker's voice is pleasant and he has good cadence and diction. (Posted on October 2, 2011)
