Ren: The Ancient Chinese Art of Finding Peace and Fulfilment (Hardback)Yen Ooi (author)
- Coming soon
A beautiful look at the Ancient Chinese philosophy of Ren and how it can help us with our hectic modern lives.
The Chinese character for Ren combines the word for 'person' and the number 'two' , representing human connection. And in the teachings of ancient philosopher Confucius, Ren is the study of our relationship with those around us.
In this accessible and beautiful book, Yen Ooi explains the various facets of Ren and explores how this philosophy applies to everything from our relationship with ourselves and the people in our lives, to how we relate to society and the wider world.
She shows us how, using the basic principles of Ren and through simple changes to our lives, we can connect better with friends, family and colleagues, become helpful members of society and find fulfilment in ideas of community, justice, morality and compassion.
