Join Haoyu Yang 楊昊宇 (Dr. Anthony Haynes) for an online version of his popular introduction to the wisdom of Lao-tzu (老子), traditionally held to be the founder of Chinese Taoism. Participants will learn how to apply key passages in Lao-Tzu's Tao Te Ching as well as later Taoist texts in order to become centred on what really matters - and will even learn a little bit of Chinese along the way!
