Description

Until recent years, many women’s stories were untold, lost in time, or forgotten altogether. For centuries, women remained quiet and suppressed by society. Yet, through their silence, you can hear their voices celebrating truths. The Tao of Women means “The Way of Women,” and finally we hear females’ voices speak. Within the pages, authors Metz and Tobin link Taoist philosophy with women’s deep and mysterious wisdom.

The Tao of Women captures and presents the power of women across generations of their lives. This book gives spiritual guidance and hope knowing women’s vast knowledge will not be lost. Read 81 brief meditations that amplify the voices of women from centuries ago. The Tao of Women sheds light on the connections through space, time, and culture. You will gain a deeper understanding of the women who came before us and those who will follow.

In 1950, near Hunan, China, the discovery of a secret language had its first translation in 1982. The secret language was known as “the women’s script,” known as “Nu Shu.”This ancient, mysterious language was created and used by women to communicate with one another at a time when women were not permitted to learn how to read or write. For the first time in America, The Tao of Women features 81 original Nu Shu illustrations and translations. This book puts their views and spirituality into perspective. As you read, you can reflect on and appreciate how far women have come in society. You will be grateful for being able to speak freely and have educational opportunities.

    A daily reminder to all women to stop and be still for a short time. Let the thought sink in, and then move on.

    I would like to know more about the connection between the verses
    I use this book in my women’s group as a tool for reflection and empowerment. The verses are insightful, inspiring, and informing. It’s a very popular addition to our discussions and a book I reach for when I need calm guidance from a distinctly women’s perspective. I would like to know more about the connection between the verses and the Nu Shu language, it’s not well explained.

    Beautiful Book That Can be Used Instead of Card Pulling Too!
    I love that this book is full of unpretentious short sparks of wisdom. It is written in a true Taoistic manner. Short segments that make you meditate on it. It can be used instead of card pulling (just open any page asking for a msg) and before meditation.
