The Body This course focuses on the view of the body as a composite structure which comes together as a personality which forms the basis of the individual. As part of the process of understanding the body, we will also, therefore be examining the �psyche� as it is interpreted within Taoism. In addition, we will be examining the different energetic �layers� of the human being. Throughout, there will be the underlying thread of the embodied nature of existence as a unifying principle. Specifically, we will talk about: The Three Dantian ("Cinnabar Fields") The Five Zang Organs as the basis for the psyche (the Five Shen) The Energetic �Layers� of the Body The Role of Change (Yi) in the Body

The purpose of this class is to provide the student with a framework to understand the philosophical underpinnings of Daoism as exemplified by the concepts Yin and Yang. This class will explore Yin and Yang as categorical processes. In addition, it will examine the basic relationships that these two concepts have with one another. Throughout the course, we will be examining real world examples to illustrate these concepts.

The first class in this series will examine some of the historical figures and social undercurrents which contributed to the Chinese philosophical systems and later religion which would come to be known as Taoism or Daoism. The main focus in this class will center on discussions of the Tao (or �Way�) as a means to guide one�s life. We will also be examining Lao zi (Laotze) and Chuang Tzu (Zhuangzi) as proponents of a philosophical understanding of the Tao/Dao. Other topics will include: � The goal of life � Right behavior Lastly, we will examine other systems of philosophy which were contemporaneous which Taoism, with a primary focus on Confucian ideas and secondarily the philosophy of Mo Zi (Mozi) as a point of comparison to the Taoist framework.
