Tao is a Chinese word meaning ”way” and signifies the underlying essence of the universe. The idea of the Tao comes from Lao Tse, a Chinese philosopher in the sixth century B.C. and author of a collection of writings called the Tao Te Ching. The Tao is something of a mystery – a paradox. It is hard to explain or understand with the mind but it can be experienced. And that is what we are going to be focusing on in these lessons – an experience of the Tao.
Throughout these lessons we will be exploring key passages from the Tao Te Ching. And along side Lao Tse we will also be quoting John-Roger whose contemporary spiritual teachings have a strong affinity with the Tao. Through these two perspectives we intend to guide you into an experience of the Tao. Each lesson is approximately 2-5 min long and they consist of reading, audio and video.
