More Description

"This avatar of the Tao Te Ching comes to us as a contemporary, familiar creature, an incarnation both timeless and timely. In The Tao of Now, Daniel Skach-Mills gives us wisdom as refreshing and new as this moment's wind in the trees, wisdom as secure in tradition as the cardinal directions with which we name any wind's path."--Paulann Petersen, author of A Bride of Narrow Escape, The Wild Awake, and other books of poetry The Tao of Now shows us ourselves in eighty-one poems that, like the ancient Tao Te Ching, offer no answers. But they do challenge us to go beyond the intellect and reconnect with wisdom in a time of desperate need. As the author writes, "The contemporary urgency for a consciousness and heart revolution is no longer an option if the planet, and humanity as a species, are to survive." His poems are here to help us make that shift. Aimed not at the thinking mind but at that part of our being which already knows the truth of what is here, Daniel Skach-Mills' poems are more like a remembering than a teaching. Each one calls us back to another voice but leaves us right where it finds us. These writings stand as a contemporary witness that the eternal Tao is alive and well, if people would only unplug, unwind, and take the time to listen with their whole Being. Daniel Skach-Mills is an award-winning poet whose poems have appeared in a variety of publications and anthologies, including The Christian Science Monitor, The Christian Century, Sojourners, Open Spaces, and Prayers To Protest: Poems That Center And Bless Us (Pudding House Publications, 1998). His chapbook, Gold: Daniel Skach-Mills's Greatest Hits, 1990-2000, appeared in 2001 from Pudding House. He and his partnerlive in Portland, Oregon.
