Tao Te Ching: Applying Ancient Wisdom in the Modern World


Francis Pring-Mill, Tues. Nov. 20, 7-8:30, $15

Today’s fast-paced world leaves us little time to spend with the timeless questions, such as how to live a meaningful life in harmony with the world around us. Nonetheless we yearn for answers — and answers are to be found in the Tao Te Ching, a book written twenty-five hundred years ago that resonates with people everywhere as though it had been written yesterday. Join Francis Pring-Mill, author of In Harmony with the Tao: A Guided Journey into the Tao Te Ching, and be guided into a deeper understanding of this classic work of Chinese philosophy as it can apply to daily life in the modern world.  


Francis Pring-Mill has been fascinated by the Tao Te Ching since discovering a copy in a secondhand store as a teenager. His new book, In Harmony with the Tao, includes the complete text of Stephen Mitchell’s elegant translation accompanied by his own illuminating commentaries on each chapter. Francis has a master’s degree and doctorate from the University of Oxford and has published in the fields of zoology, software engineering, and methodology, with writing characterized by making dense ideas easy to understand and apply.
