The Tao of Recovery: Quiet Path to Wellness is for anyone trying to heal from past traumatic experiences. The word “recovery” is often linked to drug addiction or alcoholism. In truth, it can mean any dysfunctional way of life. This book for recovery can help anyone going through the healing process.

This publication is the author’s response to Lao Tzu’s Tao Te Ching or “Book of the Way.” Therefore, this is a spiritual guide to begin your journey to recovery. Anyone seeking a path to wellness, mentally, can turn to this book by McGregor.

Recovering from addiction or loss is really uncovering what you have hidden. Jim McGregor helps shine a light into the dark recesses of the psyche to discover the beauty within.

  1. Reverend Bill McDonald Jr.

    A Classic Spiritual Book
    I first read this book with a different book cover back in 1992 (14 years ago) it is still as fresh and enlightening today. It is written almost like Zen prose that flows from the author’s heart and head. A great book for those recovering from whatever – it is profound, compassionate, full of loving acceptance and peace. (It is also a good book even if you are not recovering from anything.) The book will lead you to inner peace with yourself; or at least.

    The Tao of Recovery
    This book was very helpful for my son who was depressed after losing his job.

  3. Ed R.

    This Book Goes hand in hand with any twelve-step program.
    Anyone with an open mind and a willingness to understand how Taoism is not a contradiction to any spiritual belief, but in accordance with it will find this book helpful in their recovery.

  4. Timothy Byrnes

    Very Nice Reflection on Recovery from the Perspective of the Tao.
    A series of short verses available that merge the principles of the program with Taoist principles. A good companion to people looking for a spiritual but not religious approach.
