The Tao of Pooh

One on my favorite books when I first began the journey of Self-Discovery was, The Tao of Pooh, by Benjamin Hoff.  Pooh   The author used A. A. Milne’s characters to symbolize ideas that differ from, or accentuate, Taoist principals. Winnie the Pooh himself, for example, personified the principle of Wu Wei, Wu Wei,  the concept of effortless doing. And also the principal of Pu ,Pu, the concept of being open to, but unburdened by, life’s experiences. These are also a metaphors for our human nature. This week I was scrolling through Facebook and found an announcement for an online class with Martha Beck, a prominent Life-Coach.  The workshop looked interesting, I watched.
