Event description
Lao Zi's philosophy still influences people's daily lives, ways of thinking and dealing with life's difficulties.

About this Event

Lao Zi, founder of the philosophy known as Daoism, has earned the respect of people in all circles in China. Lao Zi's philosophy, after more than 2000 years, is still influencing the daily lives of Chinese people, heavily influencing their way of thinking and dealing with life's difficulties.

Following on from a very inspirational in-person talk at Manchester Central Library last October, Manchester Confucius Institute in collaboration with Business Confucius Institute at the University of Leeds is bringing Manuel Parreno back for this online talk!

Manuel will examine Laozi's Dao as it relates to human beings, the current global pandemic, and Laozi’s understanding of how we can harness greater inner peace in our life.
