Lao Zi was and remains a well respected Chinese philosopher whose ideas influence the lives of Chinese people on a daily basis.
Guest speaker Manuel Parreno, founder of Embrace China, examines Lao Zi's philosophy, known as Daoism, and his belief in the duality of human nature. He will explore Lao Zi's Dao and how it relates to human beings along with the idea that happiness is within everyone's reach.
