Would you like to know how to enjoy your life journey and use your intuition to discern and remain on the right path for you?

It’s been said before that not all who wander are lost. Such a statement says a lot about how we perceive wanderers. However, revered Taoist philosopher Chuang Tzu claimed that those who wander are not only on the right path, they are also often the happiest.

When Tzu lived twenty-four hundred years ago, he asserted that carefree wandering – the art of moving through life with a free and happy heart, regardless of how turbulent the journey might be – was the Tao of true happiness.

Join Sylvia and her guest award winning author and Taoist teacher, Derek Lin, as they discuss the wisdom of Chuang Tzu as shared in Derek’s newest book, The Tao of Happiness: Stories from Chuang Tzu for Your Spiritual Journey.
