My Daoist name, Yun Rou, means Soft Cloud. My monthly letter, Soft Cloud News, contains commentary and links to unfolding developments in the areas of arts and letters, Daoist living, and Planet Earth. The layout includes original photographic images from my travels around Asia and the rest of the world. There are typically recommendations for books, music, films, videos, and sometimes scientific subjects linked to evolution and natural history. I also use the platform to share information about my own work, (books, events, classes, appearances, special activities) and to cohere readers into a global community interested in Daoist practices and a Daoist world view. Such a view involves compassion, frugality, humility, harmony, balance, self-care, appreciation of Mother Nature and stewardship of all sentient beings. The newsletter is free. Please subscribe below.
