Want to have fun with metaphysics, Taoism, and a cuddly bear?  

Join the Unity of Fairfax Metaphysical Group for our study of The Tao of Pooh!  In this 8-week study, we will learn about Taoism and its connections to Unity through the lovable stories of Winnie the Pooh and his friends.  In his classic book The Tao of Pooh, Benjamin Hoff highlights Taoist teachings as expressed in the Pooh stories. As an added plus, we'll weave in tie-ins to Unity teachings, too.

There is a tremendous amount of material we could cover; however, we're going to be in the flow each week and enjoy the process of discovery.

Each week we will draw our inspiration from the chapters in sequence, so be sure to start reading the text (which is available for purchase at the Unity of Fairfax bookstore).  You may also want to read the Tao Te Ching, the foundational Taoist text.  Many versions are available online for free.

Here's the line up for our series:

June 4: Forward and the How of Pooh

June 11: The Tao of Who?

June 18: Spelling Tuesday

June 25: Cottleston Pie

July 2: The Pooh Way

July 9 & 16: NO CLASS

August 6: Nowhere and Nothing. The Now of Pooh, Backward
