THE WONDER OF THE TAO is a book intended to reveal and heal as author James Eggert explores the relationship between spirituality and ecological balance while drawing on the teachings and traditions of Taoism, Buddhism, Judaism, and Christianity. The early chapters-Life , Co-responsibility, and What's Wrong with Capitalism?--take a critical look at the impact of technology and global economics on Planet Earth. Though there is much to celebrate, there are also unforgivable (and unnecessary) losses as a result of our current cultural and economic arrangements. The second part of the book-more hopeful in tone-embraces the twin ideas of balance and rebirth. It emphasizes contributions from modern science as well as the practices of ancient Taoism (including the art of T'ai Chi)-for the health of individuals, communities, and the ecological web that sustains our unique, yet fragile planet. In his Forward, Zen monk and writer Thich Nhant Hanh, (TOUCHING PEACE; LIVING BUDDHA, LIVING CHRIST) comments and James Eggert offers us an engaging and poetic meditation on responsibility.Please enjoy this offering of our friend as an invitation to enter a deep relationship with our home
