By Hua-Ching, Ni. 6" x 9", 139 pg, paperback. The first thunder of Spring is the signal for all lives to awaken from deep hibernation and begin anew. Nature progresses effortlessly from one season to the next, but on a subtler level, humans need to be periodically awakened from a spiritual hibernation. This book contains the teaching of Yen Shi, the border official to whom Lao Tzu imparted his wisdom as he traveled west in times of great confusion and uncertainty, not unlike our own.
