The Tao of Pooh and the Te of Piglet Book Excerpt:

An utterly unique and accessible introduction to the ancient principles of Taoism with the world's favourite bear, Winnie-the-Pooh and his friend Piglet. Winnie-the-Pooh has a certain way about him, a way of doing things that has made him the world's most beloved bear, and Pooh's Way, as Benjamin Hoff brilliantly demonstrates, seems strangely close to the ancient Chinese principles of Taoism. And as for Piglet, he embodies the very important principle of Te, meaning Virtue of the Small. "It's hard to be brave,' said Piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." Rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "It is because you are a very small animal that you will be useful in the adventure before us." Benjamin Hoff's explanations of Taoism and Te through Pooh and Piglet show that this is not an ancient and remote philosophy but something that you can use, here and now. Beautifully illustrated by E H Shepard.

The Tao of Survival Book Excerpt:

“Offers clear, concise, effective, time-tested, even hallowed, means of going into any survival situation with your ‘A’ game.”—Jim Morris, Special Forces major (retired) and award-winning author of War Story Written by a student and teacher of Asian thought, martial arts, healing, and meditation, The Tao of Survival focuses on real-world, core survival skills that can save your life anytime and anyplace, in any emergency situation. It delves into fundamental concepts that most survival books don’t cover, including how to deal with fear, developing mind/body skills, and fully engaging your senses to be aware of your surroundings. “It is not every day that one comes across a gem. And that is exactly what this book is. For anyone who is into survival—that is, into life and living—then this book is truly a precious commodity to be read by everyone.”—Mykel Hawke, author of Hawke’s Green Beret Survival Manual and Special Forces combat commander “What a great book, not only well written and informative, but actually useful. There are many fine books written on the topic of survival . . . but this is the first I've seen which comprehensively focuses on teaching the essential fundamentals of true survival.”—Dr. Carl Totton, Psy.D., director of The Taoist Institute and martial arts grandmaster “[Ayres has] always had a seeker’s perspective and has applied it well in his search to know what one needs to learn to be a survivor . . . The Tao of Survival is a masterful synthesis of what it takes to survive . . . while living in a modern world.”—David Wescott, director of Backtracks and managing editor of the Bulletin of Primitive Technology

The Tao of Parenting Book Excerpt:

Applying the ancient yet timeless 81 principles of Taoism to parenting, The Tao Of Parenting features instructive anecdotes from four families to demonstrate how Taoist teachings help parents raise good, healthy children. The stories are just as diverse as the families who tell them (a blended family featuring children from separate marriages, a couple with different cultural and ethical backgrounds, a single parent of twin boys, and a couple with different parenting techniques learning to compromise).Some of the Taoist principles used by these families include: *Do Not Think of Self. Shows the rewards parents receive by making their children their number one priority. *The material is fleeting, the spiritual is everlasting. Demonstrates the rewards of caring for those in need. *Do Not Be Authoritarian. Shows how to foster self-reliance and responsibility in children while supporting their efforts, rather than controlling their every move. *Follow the middle road; it is the heart of knowing. Offers the benefits of parents being neither too permissive or too strict, but rather adjusting the rules for each child and each circumstance. There are many more valuable lessons in this special book which can be used by parents of all faiths to help guide their lives and those of their children.

The Tao of the West Book Excerpt:

In this book, J.J. Clarke shows us how Taoist texts, ideas, and practices have been assimilated within a whole range of Western ideas and agendas. We see how Chinese thinkers such as Lao-tzu and Chuang tzu, along with practices such as Feng Shui and Tai Chi, have been used as a key Western inspiration in religion, philosophy, ethics, politics, ecology and health. The Tao of the West not only provides a fascinating introduction to Taoism, it also offers a timely insight into the history of the West's encounter with this ancient tradition, and into the issues arising from inter-cultural dialogue. Anyone interested in understanding the key influence Taoism has had on the West will welcome and embrace this book.

The Spiritual Philosophy of the Tao Te Ching Book Excerpt:

The Spiritual Philosophy of the Tao Te Ching argues two main points: (1) the Tao Te Ching is a spiritual (not religious) book, and (2) it presents an implicit systematic philosophy. If we piece together the Tao's implicit and explicit views, we'll find it offers a consistently reasoned answer to life's three ultimate questions, the origin, nature, and purpose of life. Based on its answer to these questions, it offers a philosophy of life the prime goal of which is reunion with the Tao.
