Process Pop-Up: The Secular as Sacred: Taoism and Confucianism from the Perspective of Process Philosophy
July 20, 2023 @ 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm PDT
The cultural tradition of China is notorious for its secularism. There is no belief in God, no special emphasis upon spirituality, no expectation of eternal salvation. All the teachings of Taoism and Confucianism seem to be nothing more than ethical admonition focusing on secular benefits. Nevertheless, China’s civilization has persisted for more than 3000 years and seems even more compelling in our time.
In this event, Dr. Zhenbao Jin wishes to decode the secrets of Taoism and Confucianism from the perspective of his special experience of healing himself from lymphoma cancer and other chronic health problems, as well as his related research in the past 10 years. He will discuss the cosmology of Taoism and Confucianism from the perspective of process philosophy and meditation as the way to embody such a cosmology. He will show how Taoism and Confucianism are more a developing scholarship than a close system of belief, due to their non-dualistic cosmology.
