Personal Motto: With experience and study comes insight with insight come wisdom with wisdom comes moments of absolute clarity, transcendence then follows.
In my life I have Studied Accountable Philosophy with Meditation and Healing. The last 4 years I have studied more than 10 different translations of the Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu for the last three years and now I act as a spiritual dula for other people. I have mainly based this course upon the 1948 translation by linguist Lin Yutang, a 1961 translation by author John Ching Hsiung Wu, a 1963 translation by sinologist Din Cheuk Lau, 1963 translation by professor Wing-tsit Chan and translations / versions by Stephen Mitchell, John H McDonald and Jonathan Star.
I wrote this 81 week course to address the holistic needs of the individuals and institutions (e.g. churches, companies, schools, prisons, etc). These needs include, physical, mental and spiritual. This position comes from a recognition that the individual is both multifaceted and interconnected and that issues in one area will invariably affect the others.
The Tao Te Ching is one of the oldest books still in existence – and certainly one of the wisest and most profound. It presents an approach to life which is almost quite alien to our materialistic, consumer-driven modern society, but which I feel is more important than ever and is a way of reconnecting us to a more natural, balanced and peaceful mode of living and experiencing life.
