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.

Beautiful and Inspiring.
I really enjoyed the audio version of this book. It was beautifully narrated by Andrew Start. An alternative title to this book could have been, "The Tao from a Korean/New Age perspective". Throughout the book the author makes multiple Korean references which I found very interesting. The book is not really about Chinese Taoism. It more of a spiritual guidebook on the basics of how to raise your consciousness to fully connect with the Tao mentally, physically and spiritually. I believe the principles within this book can be applicable to every religious/spiritual tradition. Even if you don't accept everything the author proposes there is a lot you can take from this book.
