The Tao of Kindness

I’m adapting the 81 chapters of the Tao Te Ching into kindness verses, one each week, as part of a personal meditation practice.

The idea of this project is to consider the ancient wisdom of the Tao through the lens of 21st century kindness.

I’m sharing my verses online as a way to center my practice and to offer them to others who might find them useful. –Andy
