Abstract:

"In his later years, Alan Watts studied the Tao extensively, and in his final years moved to a quiet cabin in the mountains and dedicated himself almost exclusively to meditating and writing on the experience of the essence of Tao." "This book is drawn from his talks on Taoism during this period and from his now famous seminars given at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California, near the end of his life." "What Is Tao? is a culmination of a lifetime of study of Taoist arts, including the poetry, calligraphy, and movement arts that have all found their inspiration in the way of the Tao. This book shows us that an understanding of the ancient wisdom of the Tao can have a great impact on our busy lives today."--Jacket.
