"We need to learn how to move through conflict, violence and tragedy, for this too is part of the Tao." -Anthony Guilbert.
In this short, but fascinating conversation with writer, Anthony Guilbert, about his new book: Notes From the Drift, the teapotmonk discusses travel, fluidity, movement and how we can both interpret and employ the concepts from Taoism into our own lives.
Anthony Guilbert may be a name familiar to some of you. As well as being a writer, lecturer, poet, spiritual anarchist and martial-artist he is well known for his successful online journal - Into Mountains Over Streams.
This month, Anthony launched a new publication - Notes From the Drift - a beautifully interwoven collection of observations and reflections on travel, time, change and adaptability. Anthony kindly gave me a little of his time early one morning this week (5 a.m) to talk about the book, his thoughts on 21st century Taoism and the importance of what we each can give to the world.
