TALES FROM THE TAO by Solala Towler

by: Solala Towler

Taoism, being the most practical, unassuming and down-to-earth religion, is full of teaching stories, many of which have entered mainstream culture and consciousness. Here are many of the best – like the one where Chuang Tzu isn’t sure whether he’s a man dreaming he’s a butterfly or a butterfly dreaming he’s a man – set against wonderful monochrome photography which encapsulates, like Taoism, the best of the natural world around us. To this the author has also added new writing that has been inspired by the Taoist tradition. It’s a book to dip into or to use as a point of departure.
