What Is the Tao of Happiness?
It’s been said before that not all who wander are lost.

Such a statement says a lot about how we perceive wanderers.

However, revered Taoist philosopher Chuang Tzu claimed that those who wander are not only on the right path, they are also often the happiest.

When Tzu lived twenty-four hundred years ago, he asserted that carefree wandering, the art of moving through life with a free and happy heart, regardless of how turbulent the journey might be, was the Tao of true happiness.

Award-winning author and Taoist teacher, Derek Lin, joins Naturally Savvy hosts Andrea Donsky and Lisa Davis to share some of the Chuang Tzu's most beloved parables.

Some of the most illuminating lessons show you how to:

  • Enjoy the life journey, even when it’s turbulent.
  • Use Tao cultivation to help choose wisely at the crossroads of life.
  • Follow the Tao to become a people lover, not a possession lover.
  • Remove obstacles and complexity to discover one’s true potential.
  • Use intuition to discern and remain on the right path.

Celebrated for their accessible, down-to-earth examples, Chuang Tzu’s teachings demonstrate that the Tao is everywhere, not just in holy places or in meditation.
