In The Tao of Mom, Taro Gold collects 365 quotations from a beautifully diverse range of sources. Learn from the deep and previous knowledge of mothers around the world, and throughout history.
The sayings are from mothers and mother figures, but the content goes beyond the topic of motherhood, to explore and explain the wonders of life as a whole…all the complex and mysterious truths that emerge during a life well lived, and well loved.
You can read it and travel from Japan to India to Europe, from the Ancient world to the Middle Ages, all the way to present times on a journey that is expansive and delightful in it’s variety and breadth.
