The Living Now Book Awards concentrate on “the year’s best lifestyle and world-changing books.” These “‘books for better living’ are chosen for their unique ability to enrich readers’ lives and promote sustainability.” With its bronze medal in the Enlightenment/Spirituality category, Living Tao fulfills this criteria by drawing out the ways Tao principles can be present in our thoughts and actions. Every day becomes an act of unlimited creation when lived in alignment with the Tao.
In 2016, 109 gold, silver, and bronze medals were awarded to books in 34 total categories, ranging from cooking and coloring books to metaphysical and meditation. “This year’s medalists prove that books can unite and inspire people, in spite of the inequalities and hardships that face our world on a day-to-day basis,” says Awards Director Jim Barnes. “Not only do books allow people to find balance amidst the chaos, they also serve as a potent force against ignorance and hatred. The 2016 Living Now award-winners are a testament to the power of literature.”
