The Parent S Tao Te Ching by William Martin
William C. Martin has freshly reinterpreted the Tao Te Ching to speak directly and clearly to the most difficult of modern tasks -- parenting. With its combination of free verse and judicious advice, The Parent's Tao Te Ching addresses the great themes that permeate the Tao and that support loving parent- child relationships: responding without judgment, emulating natural processes, and balancing between doing and being.
The Activist S Tao Te Ching by William Martin
Change and anger are in the air. “We are the 99%,” “black lives matter,” and “love is love” have become part of the lexicon. Previously unquestioned institutions (police, military, the NSA) are under scrutiny. Heat waves, floods, and earthquakes seem to be increasing. Could there be a silver lining? William Martin turns to the Tao Te Ching and finds that while Taoism is known for its quiet, enigmatic wisdom, the Tao can also have the cleansing force of a rushing river. Martin elucidates these revolutionary messages condemning power seeking and greed. He emphasizes that humans have a “Te” that can help them heal the planet; shows how Taoism’s “simplicity” can be subversive and its flexibility a potent force; and reassures us that “When injustice is the rule, justice lies in wait.” Provocative and stirring, Martin’s Tao flows within and through those who ride the waves of anger and frustration, “and gently guides [them] to true freedom.”
The Couple S Tao Te Ching by William Martin
Following the successful debut of the Parent's Tao Te Ching--which Hugh Prather praised as "pure gold"--William Martin now reinterprets the Tao for couples. "The love relationship between two people can be the most rewarding and enlightening adventure possible," Martin writes, and he imparts the Tao's spirited, sage advice for everyone on that adventure. "Not since The Tao of Pooh has Taoist wisdom transmogrified into something so practical, gentle, and good."--from the foreword by Dan Millman, author of Way of the Peaceful Warrior
The Caregiver S Tao Te Ching by William Martin
Those who care for the ailing, whether helping someone recover, grapple with a long-term disability, or face a terminal illness, often feel alone, overwhelmed, exhausted. William and Nancy Martin have worked as counselors, hospice trainers, and Zen guides — and as caregivers to Nancy’s late mother. With empathy and insight, they offer readers solace drawn from the wisdom of the Tao Te Ching. Like the original Chinese text, this book contains eighty-one chapters. Each chapter includes a poem for caregivers, evocative of the verses of the Tao Te Ching, followed by a reflection that presents practical guidance for navigating the emotional and physical hardships of caregiving. The resulting resource gently awakens readers to the grace, growth, and even joy possible at each step along their path.
The Sage S Tao Te Ching Tenth Anniversary Edition by William Martin
The tenth anniversary edition of William Martin’s free-verse interpretation of the Tao Te Ching, written expressly for those coming into the fullness of their wisdom Lao Tzu’s Tao Te Ching, one of the world’s most widely read books of wisdom, reminds its readers that the sage has been venerated in China for thousands of years. In this free-verse interpretation of the Tao, William Martin subtly and powerfully captures the complex emotions connected with growing older. He encourages today’s sages to recognize their inestimable worth in a youth-centric world that often goes astray: “Will I be able to harvest my life in compassion and love for the world? Will I find in my own heart the wisdom for which I long? This question trumps all others for me. I suspect it is the same for you.”
The Tao Of Motherhood by Vimala McClure
The Tao Te Ching, the classic work of ancient Chinese wisdom, has inspired and guided millions of people over more than a hundred generations. Twenty years ago, Vimala McClure, a mother and teacher of meditation and yoga, was inspired to meditate with each of the concise, profound teachings of the Tao Te Ching and capture its spirit and wisdom in words specifically directed to an audience close to her heart — mothers. The result, a new classic based on an old one, has encouraged and uplifted mothers for nearly a generation. Even the busiest of mothers can dip into this gentle, comforting book and find wonderful inspiration and guidance.
The Tao Of Parenting by Greta K. Nagel
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.
Tao Te Ching by Laozi
The Tao Te Ching is fundamental to the Taoist school of Chinese philosophy and strongly influenced other schools, such as Legalism and Neo-Confucianism. This ancient book is also central in Chinese religion, not only for Taoism but Chinese Buddhism, which when first introduced into China was largely interpreted through the use of Taoist words and concepts. Many Chinese artists, including poets, painters, calligraphers, and even gardeners have used the Tao Te Ching as a source of inspiration. Its influence has also spread widely outside East Asia, aided by hundreds of translations into Western languages.

Tao Te Ching by John Ross Jr
"TAO-TE-CHING: The Way of Virtue in Leadership and Life," is a uniquely merged rendering of Taoism's classic, sacred text. Based upon five respected translations dating from 1944 through 2003, poet and theologian John Ross, Jr. has re-focused his own poetic version upon Taoism's intrinsic virtues critical for successful contemporary leadership. By preserving the deep wisdom natural to Lao-Tzu's ancient text, Ross has not only upheld the academic legacy and literary contributions of those translations preceding his, but also provides five appendices of helpful notes, theological scholarship, and reflective commentary. Each of the 81 chapters endeavors to instruct the reader toward acquiring a non-aggressive attitude toward all forms of leadership. For parents, educators, government officials, military leaders, clergy; and especially for those in today's business world, this new American version is one greatly welcomed. As you surrender to the principles of the Tao, may you embrace the spiritual invitation offered by the Reverend Gail Tapscott in her FORWARD to this inspiring book, one which reminds each of us that: "...as we assimilate and put the teachings of the Tao-Te-Ching and other Taoist wisdom to work in our personal, professional and spiritual life, we must all produce our own version in the end." In this comprehensive volume, Reverend Tapscott also offers a genuine and enlightening personal journey, which details her early encounters with Taoist principles beginning way back in the the nineteen sixties; and extending to this very decade. In her minsistry as a Harvard trained theologian, college professor, and decades-long minister in the Unitarian Universalist tradition, she offers the reader practical insights highlighting the features of this unique version of Lao-Tzu´s ancient text. Her commentary and theological insights serve as a spiritual guide to those who may be uninitiated in how to incorporate Taoist principles and teachings into their own busy ´digital-driven´ lifestyles. This book is a must for those interested in contemporary spirituality, the relationship of Taoism to the world´s great religions, Asian philosophy, the writings of Confucius, or simply Taoist teachings in general.
The Tao Of Teaching by Greta K. Nagel
