More About the Author

Tim is an internationally respected authority on world spirituality. He is the author of over thirty books that have established his reputation as a scholar and free-thinker. He became well known for his groundbreaking work on Christian Gnosticism with his close friend Peter Gandy, including The Jesus Mysteries, which was a top 10 best-seller in the UK and USA, and a 'Book of the Year' in the UK Daily Telegraph.

In his latest book, The Mystery Experience, Tim presents a revolutionary approach to spirituality. He creates a new language of awakening, which makes profound ideas simpler to understand, so it's easier to experience a real transformation of consciousness.

Tim runs Mystery Experience Retreats throughout the world in which he guides people directly to an experience of oneness and all-embracing love that naturally arises in the 'deep awake' state.

Format: Hardcover
This is one of my favourite ways to center after a long, nasty day. I can spend hours flipping through these pages. The excerpts from various Eastern works all have the basic Tao theme to them, even if they are not all lifted directly from the Tao Te Ching or the Ways of Chuang-Tzu, which was a gripe from another customer. The text for each day is generally brief enough that I can retain it in my head after looking at it, and this allows me to spend some time considering it without the aid of the text, or to quote or recall it at a later date when a related subject comes up. The translations are all very good - they retain the simplicity and openness that allows for personal interpretation, which I consider to be essential in any translation of Taoist thought.
I currently have eight translations of the Tao Te Ching, but when I really want to mellow out, spend some time exploring the Tao, or finding a solution to a problem I'm facing, this is the book that I grab.
My personal recommendation: Skip the first two chapters until you've had a chance to spend some time with the other sections, especially if you're new to Taoism.

It seems to me that the definition of "true" taoism is somewhat controversial. This is the first book on tao that I have read so clearly my knowledge on taoism is limited...so I can't tell you if this book is a good book about taoism; all I can say is that it is a beautiful, simple, calming, and thought-provoking read.

A daily source of wisdom and inspiration that isn't "preachy" but deep in it's whimsical "Zenny way."
