Third Saturday Lecture: Taoism with Kenneth Cohen
July 21 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
On Saturday, July 21, as a part of the Third Saturday Lecture series, the San Diego Chinese Historical Museum welcomes Kenneth Cohen to discuss Taoism in his lecture called “Taoism Revealed: Ancient Roots and Modern Branches.”
Taoism is China’s ancient philosophy of balance and harmony.
Ken will offer an overview of the principles and development of Taoism, including an in-depth discussion of its philosophic classic, the Tao Te Ching, as a coded guide to meditation and health. He will also introduce how modern science is validating Taoist mediation’s healing benefits.
After the lecture, there will be a book signing for Kenneth’s book, The Way of Qingong: The Art and Science of Chinese Energy Healing.
No previous background knowledge of Chinese is required to enjoy this presentation.
