The Tao te Ching is an ancient scripture written around the 6th century BC by Lao Tzu, the renowned “Old Master”. The wisdom of this ancient treatise on the cosmos helps us to understand how the fundamental forces of the universe itself are mirrored in our own inner structure and it gives us direction on how to cultivate these forces in order to lead a harmonious and fulfilling life. The poems and symbolism in the Tao te Ching are the foundation of Chinese medicine and acupuncture as well as a broad psychological tool that offers guidance and revelation to anyone of any nationality, any culture or any era.
It is the meta-physical doctrine of man as microcosm. It is universal.
