In his later years, Alan Watts, noted author and respected authority on Zen and Eastern thought, turned his attention to Taoism. In this book, he draws on his own study and practice to give readers an overview of the concept of the Tao and guidance for experiencing it themselves. What Is Tao? explores the wisdom of understanding the way things are and letting life unfold without interference.

"In his later years, Alan Watts studied the Tao extensively, and in his final years moved to a quiet cabin in the mountains and dedicated himself almost exclusively to meditating and writing on the experience of the essence of Tao." "This book is drawn from his talks on Taoism during this period and from his now famous seminars given at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California, near the end of his life." "What Is Tao? is a culmination of a lifetime of study of Taoist arts, including the poetry, calligraphy, and movement arts that have all found their inspiration in the way of the Tao. This book shows us that an understanding of the ancient wisdom of the Tao can have a great impact on our busy lives today." --Book Jacket.
