Publisher's Summary

Tao has been built into the foundation of East Asian culture for millennia, and many books have been written to explain it. But Tao cannot fully be explained in words; it can only felt and experienced. Tao is something you live, day by day, moment by moment. It's the omnipresent oneness beyond ephemeral phenomena that expresses itself in everything.

New York Times best-selling author Ilchi Lee, an enlightened Tao master from South Korea, has laid out a path to living Tao every day. Along this path, he guides you to an understanding of the meaning of birth, death, and everything in between, building a foundation for living a complete and whole life.

The universal principles contained in this book stem from the Korean practice of Sundo, an ancient tradition of mind-body training, as well as Lee's own life experience.

With these tangible principles, Ilchi Lee makes this profound topic simple and accessible. Living Tao has an unparalleled depth in its simplicity that anyone can absorb and immediately apply.

Doesn't flow ironically

It seems a compilation of different believes from buddhist, daoist and confucianist teachings. I find the tone of the book not authentic, rather preachy. The book is not related to TAO, vaguely at most.

Putting Life Into Perspective

This book is a great basis for living life full out. Hearing the words opened my awareness to the wealth of knowledge and application of life principles underlying what is becoming known as a Brain Education System. It helped me to see what is important for me to experience during my lifetime. It also opened a sense of acceptance that although life is finite, I am the creator of my experience even in death.

Bring you back to your center and purpose

I listen to this book on a monthly basis. I have new awakenings each time and have found it to be a vibration that I find my center. There is so much information clogged in our brains but this book feel like a spiritual bath that brings me back to my pure mind and purpose. After reading it the first time my whole life changed and since then I have found my true purpose. I am so grateful to the author and the delivery of life principles.
