Details

The Wonder of the Tao is intended to reveal and heal. Author James Eggert explores the relationship between spirituality and ecological balance while drawing on the teachings and traditions of Taoism, Buddhism, Judaism, and Christianity. The early chapters take a critical look at the impact of technology and global economics on Planet Earth. There is much to celebrate, but there also are losses as a result of our current cultural and economic arrangements. The remainder of the book embraces the twin ideas of balance and rebirth. It emphasizes contributions from modern science as well as the practices of ancient Taoism for the health of individuals, communities, and the ecological web that sustains our unique yet fragile planet. This book helps the reader:

-Learn the relevance of celebration and loss to our lives
-Delve into the concept of life
-Understand co-responsibility
-Challenge the concept of capitalism
-Accept Taoism and the principle of balance
-Learn T’ai Chi and the Ten-Thousand Things
-Accept the Wonder of the Tao

Poetry in Prose
Jim's thoughtful books, composed from the perspective of a professional economist, university teacher, and ardent environmentalist, has led me down new paths. His latest, The Wonder of the Tao, is a meditation on our place in nature, how we are wreaking havoc on our biosphere, and ways we can improve that relationship with reference to Eastern philosophy.
