Budding Taoist in the Central US

Post by Stimmothy »

Hi there, I am relatively new to a deeper study of Taoism. It was introduced to me briefly in my Sophomore year of High School and again in College Philosophy 101. After a few years of moving around and losing what was stable beneath me, so to speak, I decided to pursue it as a way to find balance and acceptance in myself. More or less I'm looking for like minded individuals to chat with and learn from. I am currently on my second reading of the Tao-te Ching.

You're welcome.
How can we help you? Tao-te ching is a very obscure book - one can't base his practice on it. The more so as many translations are contradicting themselves and the future in Sinology doesn't seem to look more clear. You need a starting point and a goal.
