The Tao of Work: Finding Meaning in the Daily Grind


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

Although we may not always be aware of it, our work is intimately tied up with concerns of destiny and personal meaning. Most of us spend more time at work than any other life activity. If we are not asking questions of our work that probe these deeper values, we relegate our “real life” to the 10 or 15 percent of waking time left to us. In this lecture, we will be asking the question, “How can we harmonize the need for meaning and purpose in our lives with the practical needs of earning a living?” Exploring the ancient wisdom of the Tao Te Ching, as well as other great wisdom traditions of the world, we will discover new ways to understand the deeper issues connected to our working lives. We will seek to apply this wisdom to everything from career choices to the ways we can transform the daily grind into a vehicle for our own spiritual and psychological growth.
