Relaxing into Your Being - Taoist Meditation [Book]

Bruce Frantzis peels away the metaphors to explain the living Taoist meditation tradition. Most of what people know about Taoism comes from philosophical texts such as the I-Ching or the Tao Te Ching by Lao Tse.  Outside of China, virtually nothing is known of Lao Tse's living tradition of Taoism. Bruce Frantzis wrote The Water Method of Taoist Meditation Series so that this tradition, known as the Water Method, might reach a wider audience in the West.

Two Branches of Taoism

Most people are unaware that there are two main branches of living Taoism, the original Water Method, which is about 2,500 years old, and the Neo-Taoist Fire Method from about 1,000 years ago. Most books on Taoism available in the West are from the Fire tradition.

The Water Method

Unlike the Fire Method, the Water Method emphasizes effort without force, softness and flow. These are the characteristics of water. This meditation method does not require belief or disbelief in God. The entry point is the body rather than any beliefs or intellectual process.

Demystifies Taoism

Relaxing into Your Being demystifies the obscure language that surrounds the living tradition of Taoism. The little-known practices of the Taoist Water Method are explained in a down-to-earth way. This book is relevant not only to anyone interested in meditation, but also to anyone who wants to find out how to lessen stress, calm the mind and rediscover deeper levels of inner peace.
