Format: Hardcover
I feel compelled to write a review, as I purchased the audiobook based largely on all the 5-star reviews. I am a seeker and an active reader of metaphysical books. I am very open minded. I am very interested in exposing myself to new perspectives on ancient wisdom including the Tao.

Prior to this book, I had no previous knowledge of Master Sha. He may very well be a sincere and gifted healer and I'll presume that he published this book with the best of intentions. Unfortunately, this book was not very useful to me as a teaching tool. The narrative is very choppy, perhaps due in part to English not being his primary language. It is also painfully repetitive at times. Master Sha claims to be in frequent communication with "the Divine" and that he is a "direct servant" of the Divine. He claims to be presenting us with new, secret spiritual knowledge. However, many of the ideas and concepts that he describes are bizarre and are not taught by any other spiritual teachers that I consider trustworthy. In order to believe the claims, you have to accept that Master Sha is truly in direct communication with the Divine and that he has obtained "secret" knowledge . . . that is a big leap to take without any supporting evidence, even if you are very open to metaphysical teachings.

My biggest concern with this book is the underlying current suggesting that you need to study with Master Sha for ten or more years if you are to attain your spiritual goals. On a subtle level, the book repeatedly promotes Master Sha's workshops and his other books and programs. Master Sha claims that his audio book contains gifts in the form of "soul downloads" to the reader.

Let me start by saying that I am not an advanced student of Master Sha's, but I keep hanging around his website, his books, and his people, because the benefits are undeniable. I have not dedicated my life to the mission of transforming Mother Earth and helping all humanity as many have, but no one has kicked me out of the movement for that. They patiently help me as I stumble along, learning as best I can. I do not have the answers for anyone. I can only say that for me there is something very very special about Master Sha, his teachers and this movement. My heart grows in leaps and bounds, and my life expands in a completely surprising and wonderful way - and yes, as a direct result of the things I learn from Master Sha and his books, his website and Facebook community. The Tao I book is the best book for me so far. Sometimes it's very hard to believe something can be so powerful and effective when it feels so simple. Master Sha presents a Tao Jing chant and even sings it in a CD that comes with the book. This chant, when I listen to it and sing it, leaves me feeling well (healthy) and healed in body, mind and soul. Of course, I make mistakes and so must return and get healed again, but it's always there for me. I like to think "one step back, two steps forward," and I'm making progress. So I guess I'm speaking to the ordinary soul out there, like me, who is interested in growing spiritually. My friend, this will do it if you lend yourself to the process. Also check in to Master Sha's Facebook page - get to know some of these lovely people. Do a search on Dr. Sha on Facebook and you'll find it. Wishing you Warm Regards and Happy Hearts!!!!!

I began reading this book a couple weeks, when I received an advance copy. The book is very easy to understand and follow. Master Sha takes you step by step into the deep and profound spiritual wisdom to rejuvenate your body and transform your life. He offers new wisdom given to him through his spiritual channels.

If you read the book, do the practices as they are presented, and use the CD in the back, you will experience change. Within days of starting some of the practices and mantras, I experienced a significant increase in energy and stamina. More importantly, Tao I is changing how I think and perceive the physical and spiritual world.

Tao I is a must have book for any family! It is not just an ordinary book. You get both an ancient text simplified and a divine healing mantra or chant to directly apply Tao wisdom to your health, relationship and financial concerns. My five year old can't put this book down because he sees and feels the Tao light, love and power imbued in every word! He grabs this book often and asks me to chant the Tao Jing with him! This rejuvenation chant alone makes this book priceless and you will not find it in any other Tao text. The included CD will help you learn it or you can just listen while it transforms and enlightens your soul. The Tao has been studied by the greatest dedicated and disciplined Masters yet very few in history have actually deciphered its true essence and melded with the Tao! Dr.& Master Sha, demystifies the Tao, presenting the essence of the ancient Tao wisdom in simple easy to understand language(FINALLY)and introduces new divine wisdom only available in this series of Tao texts! The Divine Tao Jing chant including in this text, contains the sound frequency to transform all that needs transformation within you. We FINALLY have a real opportunity to meld with the Tao! Not only has Master Sha studied with Tao masters from a very young age, he is himself a triple Tao lineage holder and the 373rd lineage holder of Peng Zu, teacher of Lao Tzu the father of Taoism and author of the Tao Te Ching. Chanting the Divine Tao Jing only included in this text, will heal you, rejuvenate you, enlighten you and help you meld with Tao! What other book can do all this? I cherish my Tao I book and you will too!
