A TAOIST ALCHEMICAL CLASSIC
A tenth-century text on the principles of inner alchemy.
The complete or “real” human being is considered a balanced combination of two levels of experience; this is expressed in the Taoist slogan ”being beyond the world while living in the world.” Thus to maintain contact with the higher, vaster dimension of “celestial” consciousness while at the same time living effectively in the “earthly” domain is one meaning of blending or uniting Yin and Yang.
The Inner Teachings of Taoism.
The essentials of self-transformation according to the Complete Reality School of Taoism, with commentary by Liu I-ming.

THE CLASSIC CHINESE BOOK OF LIFE

SECRETS OF TAOIST WOMEN
The writings and poems of six distinguished Taoist women adepts writing between the fourth and twelfth centuries, including the legendary Sun Bu-er. These translations shed light on the spiritual methods used by these women and illustrate the prominence of the feminine in Taoism.
Awakening to the Tao.
Another treasure from Taoist adept Liu I-ming, this is a collection of 142 of the master's brief but admirably lucid essays on living according to the Tao.
The Taoist I Ching.
The classic "Book of Change" illuminated by the commentary of the eighteenth - and nineteenth-century Taoist adept Liu I-ming. The first part of the book is the text of the I Ching proper with Liu's commentary. The second part is Liu's commentary on two additional sections - known as the Overall Images and the Mixed Hexagrams-added to the I Ching by earlier commentators, believed to be members of the original Confucian school. In total, the book illuminates the Taoist inner teachings as practiced in the School of Complete Reality.
I Ching Mandalas.
A traditional program of study that enables students of the I Ching to achieve a deeper understanding of the meaning of this great classic. I Ching Mandalas presents diagrams as tools for whole-brain learning that help the student to visualize patterns and interrelationships among the trigrams and hexagrams of the I Ching.
