The Tao of Calm is a book for those seekers of peace in the activities of daily life: Harried parents, pressured office workers, teachers, students, and others who feel that there is never enough time for the desired calm to balance their busy lives. These 81 meditations are modeled after the writing of the Chinese philosopher, Lao Tzu, whose timeless teachings in the book, Tao Te Ching, have survived through the years. In The Tao of Calm, Dr. Pamela Metz stays true to the spirit and structure of the Tao Te Ching while creating a guide for the readers to find a path of calmness in their lives. The author recognizes that many of us live lives of pressure, anxiety and stress, with little time for centering and reflection. In this book, the poetic images of water, mountains, sky, and earth evoke places of inner and outer calm. The Tao of Calm is a book to complement other avenues of spiritual practice such as prayer, retreats, and meditation. It can be turned to again and again for support, renewal and inspiration.
