Revolving around the Celtic calendar, The Tao of Jesus is a lively book of 365 daily meditations (plus texts for moveable feast days and seasons) that integrate the spirit of Jesus into a creation-centered spirituality. Drawn from Christian, Taoist, Jewish, and abo- riginal sources, it celebrates our connection to the Earth, the eternal Tao, and to one another. Culminating with chants, songs, rituals, and liturgies, The Tao of Jesus offers a delightful alternative to conventional church year readings and a practical, innovative guide that “helps us all celebrate the sacred in life” (Tolbert McCarroll).
“I am touched by the thought animating the book, of the energy that moves us toward all that is most evolved in humanity. There is so much remything to do, so much that is valuable to reclaim….” —Riane Eisler, author of The Chalice and the Blade
“We are invited to approach this treasury of ancient wisdom in the spirit of Jesus, who came that all may be one.” —Miriam Therese Winter, author of The Gospel of Mary
“The book is a universal gospel, a fascinating and illuminating joy.” —Willis Barnstone, editor of The Other Bible
“The range and inspiration of the materials it contains is very impressive. I will treasure it—treasure all your gems.” —Karen L. King, author of The Gospel of Mary of Magdala
Taoist rituals suitable for lively, Spirit-filled celebrations are included in this revised edition of The Tao of Jesus: “Creating Sacred Space,” “Baptism in the Tao,” and “A Chalice of Mystery.” These rituals are designed to stimulate the imagination, arouse the senses, release the emotions, and awaken the spirit for moving more deeply into Mystery.
