Welcome to Tao Directory, where you'll find Articles, Books, Downloads, Events and Website Listings for everything related to Taoism and the Taoist Arts.
Taoism, also referred to as Daoism, originated in China and represents 5,000 years of philosophical thought. Embedded so deeply in Chinese culture, it would be impossible to separate the two.
The ancient Taoist sages were responsible for formulating the principles of everything from Chinese cooking to calligraphy, Chinese medicine to acupuncture, meditation to martial arts. Indeed, it's through the Taoist arts that Taoism became popular in the West today, and whether through the practice of feng shui or sexual kung fu, you can learn something new that will improve and enrich your life.
Taoism is more than a philosophy or religion; it’s a way of life. And whether you embrace it all, or just pick and choose the bits you like, it's a win-win situation for you and everyone around you.
We hope you enjoy the resources at Tao Directory and that they inspire you on your personal journey along the Way.
