Backward Down the Path moves you forward by offering a comprehensive explanation of Taoism. This new and unique approach breaks down the Tao Te Ching for thoughtful study. Any form of philosophy may deliver deep thoughts, and as we strive for spiritual guidance, some may not fully grasp certain concepts. Taoism, an ancient Chinese philosophy, finds its place in the ancient Eastern world and the modern Western world. Lao Tzu’s Tao Te Ching has been interpreted countless times through the years. Explaining Taoism and implementing its practices come in many adaptations that all Westerners may not fully understand.
Dr. Jerry Dalton begins with text from the Tao Te Ching, paraphrases the words, or explains them to modern readers. He then gives you central concepts to contemplate and an action to take to start embracing Taoism. The book also has space to write down your reflections. Backward Down the Path takes the deep philosophical concepts of Taoism and delivers them practically for daily living.
The structure of Backward Down the Path and Dalton’s adept delivery of the interpretations make it easier to apply Taoist principles to your life. Dr. Jerry Dalton has personal experience with Taoist spirituality and does a remarkable job at interpreting the text. Backward Down the Path gives you a great starting point for your journey for anyone interested in exploring “the way” or beginning to practice Taoism.
