What is Taoism?It is Art,
It is Science,
It is Culture,
It is Philosophy.
Daoism is art, it is science, it is culture and it is philosophy.
All of these at the same time, without conflict or division.
An ancient Chinese tradition of practical philosophy, Daoism first appeared more than two thousand years ago.
For centuries it was the most popular way of life in China; in the West its various aspects are not as well known as its practices, which include meditation and Feng Shui, and for its most celebrated text, the Daodejing.
The central aim in Daoism is to follow the 'Dao', a word which roughly translates as 'The Way'. Daoists believe in following life in its natural flow, what they refer to as an 'effortless action'.
